THE VISION
The purpose of the ministry is to be a New Testament Church, fulfilling Mark 16:16-19 and Matthew 25:31-40.
Our four-fold vision is:
1. a family oriented church
2. a learning and teaching center
3. a place to mend up and heal the broken
4. an outreach church to the entire world
This four-fold ministry is supported by the following goals and ministries:
…to be a family church and a learning and teaching center. A place to reach out and mend up the broken and hurting. A center for local and worldwide evangelism.
…to prepare and perfect the saints according to Ephesians 4:12-13. We recognize that we have a mandate from God to reach the lost and dying world with the Gospel of Jesus Christ and to instruct them on how to apply Kingdom principles to their lives and encourage them to teach others. This ministry will be enhanced through the use of music by using the musicians from our own body.
…to invite well-known Word preachers with the five-fold ministry gifts and teachers who will bring a balanced ministry, teaching line upon line and precept upon precept.
…to use the arts, (drama, dance and flags) as an aide to project and proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ. The Lord showed me in this vision a large assembly area with healings, miracles and power because Jesus was being lifted up. This ministry is to reach the immediate community, county and city, as well as the world, with the Gospel. This can be achieved through evangelism, missionary outreach and MORE…
…a local church declaring the filling of the Holy Spirit for power, healing, speaking in other tongues and manifesting the gifts and fruits of the Spirit.
…to involve every person in the body in the work of the Kingdom.
…to have a Christian College and Seminary to prepare and equip the minister and lay-person to properly teach and preach the Word of God to effectively reach a lost and dying world for Jesus.
…to have a Christian Academy for the children grades K3 – 12th.
…to instruct the leadership of this body in the organizing of “Home Bible Study Groups,” enabling them to minister to the members in their locale, thus assuring that every member would be personally ministered to.
…to have a Christian restaurant with live Christian entertainment. This facility would also include a Christian bookstore and tape ministry available to anyone.
…to have a radio station with the ability to reach a fifty-mile radius that would reach the Tampa Bay area. The programs would feature well-known ministers as well as local pastors and ministers funded by the church.
…to have a variety of departments within the church to accommodate the needs of the members of the body and visitors.
…to fulfill the commission given to us by God as a part of the Body of Christ.
