Ministry Vision And History

It is the Vision of Greater Refuge Ministries to accept, operate in and fulfill the duties of our scriptural
commission given to us by our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ which states… “And the lord said unto the
servant, Go out into the highways and hedges, and compel them to come in, that my house may be filled.”
Luke 14:23

It is our Vision to return to a dying world the same Love, Forgiveness, Strength, Peace and Understanding that our
Heavenly Father has given to each of us.

It is our Vision to share the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ with the lost. And while sharing this Good News
we will obligate ourselves to go beyond the walls of this church, beyond our cultural and ethnic backgrounds and reach
out to a dying world on a local, state and international level.

It is our Vision to Restore Faith, Build Families and Impact Communities by sharing the unadulterated Word of God under
the unction and the power of the Holy Spirit.

It is our Vision to invite and welcome thousands of members into our church fellowship and family. We will support and
encourage them with the strength and wisdom of our Pastor and the Leaders that are placed in this ministry. We will stand
with them as they become strong in their faith and faithful in their walks.

It is our Vision to mentor and develop new believers into maturity through our Bible Studies, Sunday Schools, Small
Groups, Workshops, Seminars, Retreats and School of Theology. Though the teaching will go forward it is our mandate
to lead believers by example allowing them the opportunity to walk according to the Word of God that proclaims…”be ye
doers of the word, not just hearers only”. James 1:22

Father has bestowed upon them

instruction to the homeless, the elderly, the unemployed and the underprivileged.

It is our Vision to become the beacon of churches in our local and surrounding areas and nationwide. Our desire is
to become a church supported and upheld financially by tithing members and supporters through various forms of
philanthropic contributions thus proving that the ministry that we provide will reach out and touch the hearts and lives of
those with wealth laid up for the righteous.

It is our Vision to become a source of strength and a resource for clergy, churches, the educational and business
community. It is our vision before Christ that Greater Refuge Ministries is a representation of The Church …”That he might
present it to himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without
