Our History

Horizon Christian Fellowship – Morgan County began in 2009 as a home Bible study under the leadership of Dr. J.R. Russell. By 2010, the church body had grown and a search began for a suitable facility to accommodate growth and ministries. The church relocated to a building and grounds near the small village of Wilbur, Indiana.

In Spring of 2016, Horizon Christian Fellowship – Morgan County relocated to the 48 acre complex just south of Mooresville and north of Brooklyn, Indiana where it currently carries out its vision.

Our Vision

Horizon Christian Fellowship – Morgan County is a Bible-centered, family-focused church devoted to Worship; Education; Evangelism; Discipleship; and Fellowship. Therefore, we have a responsibility to:

WIN A PERSON TO JESUS CHRIST 

Mark 16:15 – “And He said to them, ‘Go ye into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature.”

DISCIPLE A PERSON IN JESUS CHRIST 

Matthew 28:19-20 – “Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen.”

SEND A PERSON FOR JESUS CHRIST 

Acts 1:8 – “But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.”

Jerusalem = Horizon Christian Fellowship

Judea = Morgan County

Samaria = The United States and Territories

Uttermost Parts of the Earth = All areas of the world outside the United States

Our Affiliations

Horizon Christian Fellowship – Morgan County, while independent and nondenominational, is a part of the Calvary Chapel movement. Our church is closely affiliated with Horizon Christian Fellowship Central located in downtown Indianapolis, and Horizon Christian Fellowship, located on the north east side Indianapolis.
