TODAY'S MESSAGE. "Kingdom Revolution"

Today's Guest Speaker: Pastor Steve Holt from Colorado Springs. He and his wife were missionaries in Japan before starting churches. Steve was a keynote speaker at Iron Sharpens Iron this weekend. Let's hear what God speaks to New Horizon through Steve.

Acts 2:17–21 “ ‘In the last days, God says, I will pour out my Spirit on all people. Your sons and daughters will prophesy, your young men will see visions, your old men will dream dreams. 18 Even on my servants, both men and women, I will pour out my Spirit in those days, and they will prophesy. 19 I will show wonders in the heaven above and signs on the earth below, blood and fire and billows of smoke. 20 The sun will be turned to darkness and the moon to blood before the coming of the great and glorious day of the Lord. 21 And everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.’

Hebrews 12:26–28 At that time his voice shook the earth, but now he has promised, “Once more I will shake not only the earth but also the heavens.” 27 The words “once more” indicate the removing of what can be shaken—that is, created things—so that what cannot be shaken may remain. 28 Therefore, since we are receiving a kingdom that cannot be shaken, let us be thankful, and so worship God acceptably with reverence and awe,

Matthew 6:33 But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.

NH’s Dream With Us initiative.


1. God is a dreamer. So are His kids. God poured out His Spirit that we might dream again. (Acts 2:17)

2. God has a dream—that His house might be full. When God’s dream becomes our dream, it’s a game-changer for our God-walk. (Luke 14:16-21)


1. NH thrives on dreams & visions. NH’s debt is an impediment; we walk a limp. Let’s break free of debt so we’re free to dream again. (1 Corinthians 2:9)

2. Debt is damaging. NH’s debt wearies our church and burdens our ministries. Let’s defeat debt and leave a legacy for those who follow. (Proverbs 22:7 & Romans 13:8)

3. Our debt hinders our high calling. We must defeat debt for the sake of most effectively engaging our culture with God’s truth. (1 Corinthians 4:1-2)


NH will wrap up our City on a Hill campaign by 12-21. Thanks for your generosity!

NH’s mortgage is $1.5 million. Our 11 year mortgage payment is $14,500 per month.

NH’s B.H.A.G. Goal: Let’s burn or budget NH’s mortgage by 12-22.
It’s our dream.

NH’s “Big Give Month.” SEPTEMBER, 2021. Churchwide, sacrificial giving, and every nickel goes to mortgage principal.

NH’s 2022 “5th Sunday Giving.” Two special offerings, all to mortgage principal.


1. Will you follow our Dream With Us prayer prompts through August & September?

2. Will you prayerfully consider continuing to give for our mortgage throughout?

3. Will you ask God to prompt your special giving in September, and for faith to give?

Today’s Message. "Living Large: Making an Impact with Our Lives" (Matthew 25:14-30.)

Deep in our soul is the dream of living & leaving a legacy. We want our lives to matter & make a difference. It’s God’s dream for us as well. But the recipe may surprise us…
