what is "New Horizon's Church"?

..and they, continuing daily with one accord in the temple, and breaking bread from house to house, did eat their meat with gladness and singleness of heart, praising God and having favor with all the people.  And the Lord added to the church such as should be saved.
-Acts 2: 46-47


New Horizons Church exists expressly for the purpose of fulfilling “The Great Commission” of Matthew 28:19-20 TOGETHER...

Loving God

Learning the Word

Living in the presence of the Holy Spirit

Lifting up people 

Leading souls to Jesus

Hebrews 10:24-25 And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds, 25 not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another—and all the more as you see the Day approaching.


Our physical community is a beautifully unique part of the Pacific Northwest. Nestled off of I-5, one hour from Pacific ocean beaches, surrounded by three flowing rivers and under the shadow of a drowsy volcano. Our community is rich in scenic views, artists, musicians, various churches, mill workers, loggers, outdoor enthusiasts, small business developers, and just down to earth families and friends.

Our church community is loving, welcoming, non-judgmental, supporting and encouraging. There is a place here for you and your family to grow together and worship God.  


All of the Bible is the written Word of God. It is the final authority for our life and faith in Jesus Christ.

He is a living and true God who is perfect in love and all His ways.
He is one God in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

He is God’s only Son. Man can restore his broken relationship with God and be assured of eternal life through Jesus Christ alone.

Holy Spirit:
Christ lives within our hearts through the Holy Spirit. Also, the baptism of the Holy Spirit according to Acts 2:4, is given to believers who ask for it (Acts 2:39).

Spiritual Gifts:
All spiritual gifts mentioned in the New Testament are available for the church today.

Healing is available as a result of the redemptive work of Christ.

In water baptism and observance of the Lord’s Supper.

The Second Coming:
In the blessed hope, which is the rapture of the church, and the
second coming of Christ.

nhc core values:

* Extending Christ's Grace
*Expressing God's Love
*Experiencing Joyful Community

April 1995

Longview Senior Center. 1111 Commerce Ave, Longview – Church officially started on Palm Sunday night at the rented Longview Senior Center.  That first Sunday night was attended by 44 people.  The following Sunday morning, 77 attended.

November 1995

The Masonic Lodge.  Maple Avenue, Longview – Services were held at the Senior Center until November, 1995 when, for the next 14 months, services would be held at the Masonic Lodge in Longview.

January 1997

Kelso High School Auditorium. Kelso, Washington – After a few months at Kelso High School, services were moved back to the Longview Senior Center.  Attendance hovered between 70 and 100 people; at the The Masonic Lodge attendance was in the 60’s.  New Horizon’s Church remained at the Senior Center until the purchase of the former Monticello Nursing Home in November, 1998.

Spring 1999

A New Building.  Kelso, Washington – Services held in the Spring of 1999 at our new (and current) location at 405 N 19th Avenue in Kelso. The building was extensively remodeled and when work was completed we held our grand opening in November, 1999.  In January, 2000 mid-week services began.

March 2020

Due to a world wide pandemic known as COVID-19, we had to cancel our in sanctuary services for several months, like many other churches across the nation. However this opened up a whole new door in starting online services for the first time. And after everything is opened up, we will continue to provide online messages from the pastor on our social media platforms for those who can not make it in person . 

APRIL 2020

This date marks our 25th anniversary for NHC with the same pastor, Larry Rogers! The last 25 years has been so exciting  and we are looking for many more to come. We hope that you will be part of our story as well.

June 2020

We opened up our services for in-person congregation once again. Being good stewards in sanitizing and COVID precautions recommended. It's a new world we live in but we are still spreading the Gospel and being there for our community in person and online!!

JuLY 2021

During 2020 we did some much needed updating in the interior sanctuary, media and sound equipment. So this summer of 2021 we started on the exterior. Pastor Larry did much of the painting himself by hand with a few volunteers and then all the touch ups, trim work and 2nd coating done by a small local company led by Stan Sigler who gave our much needed fresh-up on the outside.  We are ready for another 20 years now!

Aug 27. 2022

1st Annual Kayak Trip for the adventure buffs of our church.

For the first time since NHC was founded, we voted in a new senior Pastor. After 27 years of faithful service our founding Pastor, Larry Rogers resigned due to ongoing health issues and by unanimous vote, Tim Carns was elected our New Senior Pastor!!
