Proverbs 29:18 (NKJV)
18 Where there is no revelation (Vision) , the people cast off restraint; But happy is he who keeps the law.
Although the word “vision” in this verse isn’t limited to goals or dreams that the Lord gives us, it specifically is referring to godly revelation of right and wrong. We at Grace Life Church believe in God’s word as being the final authority for every area of life. And though we have many visions as a body, we have listed the main vision of this church or the purpose of GLC.
First Vision: Minister and teach Gods uncompromised Love and His Grace.
Ephesians 2:8-9 (NKJV) 8 For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, 9 not of works, lest anyone should boast.
John 3:16-17 (NKJV) 16 For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. 17 For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved.
Second Vision: Edify the Body
Ephesians 4:29 (NKJV) 29 Let no corrupt word proceed out of your mouth, but what is good for necessary edification, that it may impart grace to the hearers.
Ephesians 4:11-12 (NKJV) 11 And He Himself gave some to be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, and some pastors and teachers, 12 for the equipping of the saints for the work of ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ,
Acts 20:32 (NKJV) 32 So now, brethren, I commend you to God and to the word of His grace, which is able to build you up and give you an inheritance among all those who are sanctified.
Third Vision: Equip others to go out and do the work of the ministry
Mark 16:15 (NKJV) 15 And He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature.
Ephesians 4:11-12 (NKJV) 11 And He Himself gave some to be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, and some pastors and teachers,
12 for the equipping of the saints for the work of ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ,
2 Timothy 2:2 (NKJV) 2 And the things that you have heard from me among many witnesses, commit these to faithful men who will be able to teach others also.
2 Timothy 4:5 (NKJV) 5 But you be watchful in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, fulfill your ministry.
