What is the PCA?


Horizon Church is a community created by the grace of God through faith in Jesus Christ alone. What binds us together is not common education, common race or common politics, common jobs or common accents, or anything of that sort, but the One who was crushed and pierced that we might be made whole and healed (Isa. 53:3-5).

We are a community that believes all of life should be interpreted through the lens of the Bible, that we might apply the wisdom of God to life’s joys, challenges and sorrows, in honest, encouraging and committed relationships. Horizon is connected with other like-minded churches in the Presbyterian Church in America (PCA) through the Calvary Presbytery. 
Calvary Presbytery is one of 76 Presbyteries in the Presbyterian Church in America,  which is a conservative, reformed, Bible teaching denomination.  There are 44 Churches in Calvary Presbytery located in the upstate of South Carolina.  Calvary Presbytery was formed on July 1, 1973 as the eighth Presbytery in the PCA.  At that time Calvary Presbytery included the whole state of South Carolina. We grew to over 100 churches, and on January 1, 1984, we were divided by the formation of Palmetto Presbytery, comprising the lower part of South Carolina.  Then on July 1, 1994 Fellowship Presbytery was formed out of Calvary Presbytery, this comprising the northeast counties of South Carolina.
