The fundamental principles of this ministry are built on the below 7 pillars:
Learn, play, and grow in Vision Open Bible Church's Kids Church and children's ministries! We're passionate about reaching kids with the Good News, and bringing up a new generation of leaders in the church and in the community. Our Kids Church team makes every Sunday fun, insightful, and encouraging. Your child will make new friends, play games, hear stories, and learn something new about Jesus along the way!
Get ready to climb higher, dive deeper, and go farther with your faith than ever before. At Vision Open Bible Church's youth ministry program, we are a revolutionary band of middle schoolers, high schoolers, and young adults who take their passion for Jesus beyond the limits of our church walls. We reach out to our community, serve those in need, and preach the gospel to all our friends. Ignite your spirit today, and come see why we're all so crazy for Christ!
What should a Godly Woman look like? What does the Lord expect from her, and how can she bring honor to Him, her family, and her community? In our Women's Ministry, we pursue answers to these questions, so we can boldly face an uncertain world with wisdom, kindness, and security in our faith. We are a place where all women can come together and feel welcomed, loved, and strengthened by the power of Jesus Christ.
Now more than ever, it is important for men to live spiritual lives full of integrity, action, leadership, and strength. In our Men's Ministry program, we come together as we are to support each other in our individual journeys to discover the kind of men God wants us to be. We speak out and take action against injustice in this world, lead our friends and families, stand firm in the face of adversity, and seek first the Kingdom of God in all we do.
The scriptures say that when two or three believers join together in prayer, the Lord is with them. We've seen for ourselves the amazing power that comes with the presence of God, and take every opportunity to encourage it in our school. We've witnessed bonds being broken, bodies becoming mended, stress lifted away, and relationships reconciled. Don't just take our word for it though: see for yourself the healing that comes from meeting with the Lord!
