VISION for 2017
I have always been a visionary. I have dreamed many dreams and the ministry we enjoy is because some of those dreams came true. I started this church with a dream of seeing God do something special. Many times throughout scripture we see God use men who had a vision. Nehemiah had a vision of what he wanted to do for God and in 52 days the walls of Jeruselum were rebuilt. Abraham had a vision of being the father of a great nation. Moses had a vision of delivering the children of Israel from Egyptian bondage. David had a vision of being the Kind of Israel. Paul had a vision of reaching many for Christ. Vision is God given! My vision and goal has always been to do more for the cause of Christ.
“Far better is it to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure, than to take rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy much nor suffer much, because they live in the gray twilight that knows not victory or defeat.” ~Theodore Roosevelt
We need a CHURCH full of people with a great vision to serve God!
We started 2016 with a vision and a goal to ENGAGE in Christ and Community. From January thru December, God was busy doing a mighty work at Grand View Baptist Church and in our surrounding area.
Though we have seen many of our goals met through the years, WE ARE NOT DONE YET!
Proverbs 29:18 says: “Where there is no vision, the people perish.”
At Grand View Baptist Church we are continuing to set goals to do great things for Christ! Our theme this year is IMPACT - we want to impact our community with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. We endeavor to do this by loving on our city, witnessing to the lost about the saving grace of Christ throughout this year, discipling new converts, and by engaging many of our people in a ministry that makes a difference. IMPACT!
