Our Mission

True Vision Ministries is a non-denominational Bible teaching ministry created to reach people far from God, love them where they are, and connect them to Gospel truth in love. We believe that by living out our faith in community, people can have effective, transformed lives for Christ in the real world. We do this by demonstrating God’s grace and offering hope while walking with those whose lives are being restored.

It is the desire of True Vision Ministries to share the Gospel of Jesus and make disciples of all people. We do this by encouraging and nurturing those who love Jesus and being the example of God’s Love to those who do not yet know Him.

What We Believe

On God

We believe in one God, creator and sustainer of all things, infinitely perfect, holy and eternally coexisting in three persons - Father, Son, and Holy Spirit - who are omniscient, omnipotent, and omnipresent.

On The Authority of Scripture

We believe that the scriptures, both Old and New Testaments, are the Word of God. We believe that the original manuscripts are the inspired, inerrant, and trustworthy Word of God, the complete revelation of His will for the salvation of human beings and the final authority for all matters about which it speaks. We believe that God still does everything today that He did in scripture.

On Jesus Christ

We believe that Jesus Christ is God and that He is God’s only begotten Son, conceived by the seed of the Holy Spirit, born of a virgin, lived a sinless life, performed miracles and was infallibly taught, lived and is the Word of God from the beginning. He preexisted with God in the form of God. He freely gave up His position, humbled Himself, and became incarnated as a man. We believe Jesus Christ is the only mediator between God and mankind.

On The Atonement

We believe the death of Jesus Christ for the atonement of our sins and His bodily resurrection provide the only ground for justification, forgiveness and salvation for all who believe that He is the Son of God.

On Salvation

We believe that accepting and confessing Jesus Christ as the only Son of God and asking Him to forgive our sins result in a reconception and regeneration of our lives, as the seed of God’s light enters our spirit (Galatians 3:19, 1 John 3:9). This results in new birth as we become new creations in Him. This new birth or being “born again” does not make our decisions and actions immediately perfect. It is the beginning of a new way of life that allows God, in His faithfulness, to conform us to His nature (Romans 5:10, Philippians 1:6).

On The Resurrection

We believe Jesus Christ resurrected from the dead, ascended into Heaven and sits at the right hand of God the Father, forever making intercession for His people. Just as He resurrected from the dead, His resurrection is the first-fruits promise of the resurrection into eternity for all who believe in Him.

We believe that when Jesus ascended to the right hand of the Father, He gave five ministry gifts to mankind: the Apostle, Prophet, Evangelist, Pastor, and Teacher. These ministry gifts are to mature and unify His people, help His people grow in intimacy with the Father and advance His kingdom.

On Baptism

We believe that water baptism should be by immersion and consummated after committing to the Lordship of Jesus and His atoning sacrifice for our sin. This ordinance is a personal and public statement of our faith in the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ on our behalf. It is also a commitment to follow His example and lay down our lives for the sake of His Kingdom.
