Vision is a church that supports 48 missionaries, […]

This morning at Vision Baptist Church, we learned great truths about government and God from Matthew chapter 22.

Communication is an extremely important aspect of marriage. We need to know what the other is thinking and feeling. This need is often emphasized in books about marriage. However, what often gets ignored when we speak about communication is that God deserves to have the loudest voice in our marriage. In our long nights of […]

Yesterday was set aside, nationally, as Sanctity of Life Sunday. We whole heartedly agree with thousands of churches across America that this is an issue for which the Bible is not silent. We believe life begins at conception which means we believe that decisions made concerning the unborn are of the the utmost importance. We […]
