Ask yourself this very important question. “If I were to die today, would heaven be my eternal home?” If you cannot answer “Yes” to that question, please keep reading this page!
The function of this ministry is very simple. We are not about entertainment, or musical skill. These are tools to get your attention so that we can tell you the reason we do what we do. It may be that you haven’t had the opportunity to see Eternal Vision live. You may not have heard us sing a single note. That’s OK, you’re here now and we have something to tell you.
Jesus loves you. He loves you so much that, for some reason, he led you to this page of our web site. He led you here because He has something that He wants you to know. The first thing He wants you to know is that there is hope.
It is hard to imagine that anyone growing up in America has not memorized John 3:16 from early childhood. But, let’s take the opportunity to examine it again, “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten son that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish but have everlasting life”. You are “whosoever”! God loved you and He made a way that you could have life everlasting.
You may be saying to yourself that God could not love you. You have never sought God’s favor. You have not been tuned to God’s will. You have never done anything that would make God want you. That is all true. But, you are here now, in the 4th Chapter of John, the Samarian woman was not seeking Jesus at the well of Jacob. Jesus found her there, she did not find Him. God quickened her spirit so that she might understand that Jesus was the Messiah and that He spoke the truth and she believed. Paul was not seeking Jesus on the road to Damascus in the 9th Chapter of Acts. God struck him down to get his attention.
The scripture is full of examples of people who had no intentions of becoming Christians but God had other plans. God’s Holy Word, in the 2nd Chapter of Ephesians says this starting with the 4th verse and going through the 10th: “But God, who is rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us, even when we were dead in trespasses, made us alive together with Christ (by grace you have been saved), and raised up together, and made us sit in the Heavenly places in Christ Jesus., that in the ages to come He might show the exceeding riches of His grace in His kindness toward us in Christ Jesus. “For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast. For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them.”
You see, because God loves you, He has brought you to this place, He has made you spiritually alive. He has given you the information you need to know in order to be saved and He has already given you the faith to trust it. Jesus said in the 65th verse of the 7th Chapter of John, ” And He said “Therefore I have said to you that no man can come to Me unless it has been granted by My Father”. You don’t deserve it and you certainly cannot obtain it on your own. He gives you this gift of grace. His spirit has born witness to you of this truth. He has given you the faith to realize that in order to be saved, you must trust in Christ Jesus as your personal savior (Romans 10:9&11, Acts 4:12 , Hebrew 2:10, 1 Thessalonians 5:9). and you must repent (turn away from) your sins. (Luke 15:7-10) OK, you know this to be true and you accept it. You have asked Christ to be your personal savior. Let me say right here, this is not an intellectual decision. It is not a decision made with the head, it must be made in the heart. You will know if God has quickened you. Now what do you do with this information?
First, you need to profess your salvation publicly (Romans 10:9). In the 10th Chapter of Matthew in verse 32 Jesus said “Therefore, whosoever confesses me before men, him I will also confess before My Father who is in heaven.” We are commanded to let others know what God has done for us!
The second thing is, you need to find a good “Bible believing” church and join them through believer’s baptism. This precedent is set forth in the 2nd Chapter of Acts in the 38th verse and is command by Jesus in Matthew 28:19. It is important for you to be among God’s people in this early stage of your new life as a Christian. You will need to be discipled by a body of believers that cares for you and nurtures you in your new found faith. (Hebrews 10:25)
Lastly, seek God’s will for your life. He has a purpose for you. He has lifted you from the bondage of sin. You are a new creature in Christ. Old things have passed away and behold all things are made new! You don’t need to worry about all the things you don’t know. Start where you are, do what you know to do. Seek God’s will in His word. Seek the counsel of Christians you respect. The Holy Spirit will guide you as you seek God’s will for your life.

One other message for those of you who already know God’s amazing grace. Maybe you are facing trials and tribulations that seem overwhelming. Maybe you are not where God wants you to be.
