Vision: Believing Is Seeing

This morning, God is challenging us in a huge way.  With this challenge, however, comes the opportunity for us to leave this place this morning completely free of so many burdens that heavily weigh us down such as bitterness, resentment, hurt, and hate.  With this challenge comes the opportunity for us leave this place this morning full of peace, confidence, assurance, hope and joy. I have to warn you, though.  This opportunity comes at a cost.  God is willing to…

2020 Vision – Family

Last year, God’s vision for our church was simply to be the church. He wanted to rebuild us at our foundation. His call was one of repentance, to change the way we think for the better. We didn’t plan to implement any new ministries or programs or ideas, but rather to return to who Jesus was calling us to be. We were being called to change how we serve one another and the community, to repent of some poor attitudes…

2019 Vision – be the church

Though it is hard to believe, here we are already well started into the new year. Each year, we seek after God for new and fresh vision of what He specifically would like us to become and accomplish in that upcoming year.

We…

2017 Vision: Connected

Well, the time has finally come.  A brand new year, a brand new start, and for New Hope, a brand new vision!  Why do we have a vision each year, though?  Why is it so important?  Why is it that each year we seek after God and require His revelation of His vision for us each year?  Well, His word teaches us about this.   Proverbs 29:18 (KJV) Where there is no vision, the people perish: but he that keepeth…

2015 Vision: Commit to Know God

Last week, Dave shared a message explaining a bit about why vision is so important.  It is for the purpose of sharing God’s vision for our church in the upcoming year that we’ve gathered this morning.  It is vision and revelation that God chooses to use to communicate to us.  God, having created us, knows how we learn and understand things.  God knows that if we can envision something and understand it, that we can work together to achieve it.…

Why Vision?

So here we are in 2015!  Many of us are making resolutions and commitments that in some way, this year will be different; this year will be better!  This is awesome, because that is also God’s will for us.  He has plans to give us a hope and a future, to prosper us and not to harm us.  His desire is that change would take place in our lives this year; change for the better! Next week, we’ll join together…
