Our Vision

Greater Vision Christian Church has the mandate of the Great Commission from

our Lord Jesus Christ. The purpose of our mission in ministry is to minister to the lost and bring deliverance to those who are bound. The atmosphere is filled with God’s presence through praise and worship which gives people the opportunity to have an encounter with God.

Ministries are directed by the Holy Spirit for the sole purpose of bringing healing and deliverance to the lives of 

unbelievers. Our outreach ministry is designed to minister to the least, the lost and those for whom nothing has been prepared. Through feeding the hungry, providing clothes for many, and visiting

the sick, the fulfillment of The Great Commission is accomplished.


Our Beliefs


LUKE 4:18

 “The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to

preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set

at liberty them that are bruised"


The Bible

We are a Ministry based on Biblical principles. We believe the entire Bible

is inspired by God on which we base our faith, conduct, and doctrine.

The Trinity

We believe in the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit who is One.


We believe Jesus died on the cross and shed His blood for our sins. We believe that salvation is placing our faith in Jesus’ death on the cross. We believe Jesus rose from the dead and is coming again.

Water Baptism

We believe water baptism is a symbol and testimony to our faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. We believe that we are cleansed by His blood.


We believe in the regular taking of Communion as an act of remembering what the Lord Jesus did for us on the cross for as often as ye eat the bread, and drink of the cup, we remember

the Lord's death till he come.

Growing Relationship

We believe every believer should be in an ever-growing relationship with Jesus by obeying God's Word, empowering and applying God's Word for the betterment of life, yielding to the Holy Spirit and conforming to the image

of Christ.
