New Vision Ministries is a small body of believers, approximately 50 people on the city's east side of town. We are very family-oriented, and exhibit a lot of love. If you are tired of feeling "lost in the crowd," then New Vision might be the ministry you are looking for.
We still believe that we should seek those that are lost, visit the sick, visit those in prison and feed and clothe the hungry.
How we praise God.
We believe that God dwells in the midst of praise and worship, according to the Holy Scriptures. We praise Him with musical instruments, we praise Him in the song and dance, we praise Him with our lips, we praise Him with the clapping of our hands, we praise him through the arts, we praise Him with our lifestyle (Psalm 150).
What we believe.
We believe in the one living and true God, both holy and loving, eternal, unlimited in power, wisdom, goodness, the Creator and preserver of all things. Within this unity there are three persons of one essential nature, power and eternity – the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit, these three are one (1 John 5:7-8; Eph. 4:5-6; Deut. 6:4).
Speaking in Tongues.
We believe in speaking in tongues as the Spirit gives utterance, and that speaking tongues is the initial evidence of the infilling of the Holy Ghost. The five-fold purpose for speaking tongues: 1) To control the whole person (James 3:8). 2) For a sign (1 Corinthians 14:22; Acts 2:8, 11). 3) To speak to God (1 Corinthians 14:2). 4) For edification (1 Corinthians 14:4; Romans 8:26). 5) As a weapon of warfare (Ephesians 6:18).
Repentance and Faith.
We believe that for men and women to appropriate what God’s preeminent grace has made possible, they must voluntarily respond in repentance and faith. The ability comes from God, but the act is the individuals (Acts 2:38).
Justification, Regeneration and Adoption.
We believe that when one repents of personal sin and believes on the Lord Jesus Christ, that at the same moment that person is justified, regenerated, adopted into the family of God, and assured of personal salvation through the witness of the Holy Spirit (Romans 10:9).
Sanctification: Initial, Progressive, Entire.
We believe that sanctification is that work of the Holy Spirit by which the child of God is separated from sin unto God and is enabled to love God with all the heart and to walk in His holy commandments (love), blameless. Sanctification is initiated at the moment of justification and regeneration. From that moment there is a gradual or progressive sanctification as the believer walks with God and daily grows in grace and in a more perfect (mature) obedience to God (Romans 12:1-2).
If you are looking for a ministry that preaches and teaches the full gospel message of Jesus Christ without the added man-made rules and gimmicks, New Vision may be the home of worship you are looking for.
