We are often asked what kind of church we are since today there are so many different kinds of churches. Let me give you a basic outline of who we really are:
We are a Bible preaching and teaching church. By that I mean we take the Bible and study it verse by verse. The Bible is alive and we allow the Bible to speak in a life giving, exciting way, that challenges the way we live, brings conviction, causes repentance toward God and causes men and women to be saved and to honor and glorify the great God of Heaven.
We sing exciting soul stirring hymns of the faith, choruses, and spiritual songs but our music is far from contemporary. We sing exciting but traditional music. We worship and praise God with doctrinally sound words that hopefully clearly transmit the great messages of Scripture.
We are a world evangelism church meaning that it is our goal to reach souls with the gospel message of Jesus here where we live and then to reach out to the entire world with the gospel message. We give to missions through a program called Faith Promise which is where our people after much prayer decide what they would like to give above their tithes and offerings to the church for the cause of world evangelism. So far in our existence we have given over $140,000 to the cause of world evangelism.
We are a diverse or multicultural church where everyone is welcome. We are excited and thank God that we have men and women of all races, language groups, nationalities, and social levels in our church. God loves people from all over the world and so do we. How could we claim to be a world evangelism church and not love our neighbor who might be a different color or ethnic group.
We strive to make our church an exciting and welcoming church but to be honest it will not be all that comfortable for the sinner or the person who desires to continue living as he or she wants. Here they will hear the gospel preached that will tell them of their need for a Savior so that requires that the Holy Spirit convict of sin.
I thank God for our church and hope you will visit. I thought that this little article might help you to understand what you will find at Vision when you come. We will welcome you. We will be glad to see you but we do come to worship the great God of Heaven and magnify His Son Jesus Christ.
