Horizon Church is an Assemblies of God congregation located at 2345 Columbiana Road at the top of Shades Mountain in Vestavia Hills.

The congreation was first organized in 1939 as the Norwood Assembly of God in Birmingham by Rev. D. H. Brown. After initially worshiping above a store at 25th Street North and 12th Avenue North, it purchased a building at 20th Street North and 12th Avenue. In 1968 it purchased property at 2120 Lakeshore Drive in Homewood and erected a new buidling that sat approximately the same number as the previous building. At this time it changed its name to Lakeshore Assembly of God. In the late 1980s, Southern Progress approached the congregation to purchase the site, the church sold it to them in exchange for a new site and a new church. The new 500-seat builing on Columbiana Road was completed in 1988 and dedicated under the new name Calvary Temple Assembly of God on June 6. At that time the congregation had about 100 members.

In 2009 Calvary Temple renamed itself Horizon Church.
