We’re in this Together

Dear friends,

“Behold, how good and pleasant it is when brethren dwell in unity!” Psalm 133:1

Vision has only been made possible with the practical support and dedicated prayers of other fellow believers across Australia; who have graciously over the years joined with us as ‘co-missionaries’ to use mass media to take the Word of God to every corner of Australia. Habakkuk 2:2 was the original Scripture that inspired us, gave us our name and united a movement together.

“Write the vision; make it plain on tablets, so he may run who reads it”

Vision’s founders were not only pioneers of Christian radio in Australia, but they saw that media could be used as an effective way to reach across our vast continent and remote parts; so anyone who wanted to could hear God’s Word, be uplifted and have their lives changed. Therefore, with only limited resources, our founders stepped forward in great faith and with very humble beginnings.

Today, Vision is a large and growing national ministry that is a trusted, consistent and unifying voice. Reaching over a million followers a month through narrowcast radio, printed materials, cloud-based apps, and digital social media; bringing healing, hope and reconciliation across our land.

The message of reconciliation…as Christ’s ambassadors

What we are doing together is no small thing. It is significant in the history of our nation and brings truth and clarity at a time of so much uncertainty and division. The truth we bring is found in 2 Corinthians 5:17-20 (NIV)

“Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come! All this is from God, Who reconciled us to Himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation: that God was reconciling the world to Himself in Christ, not counting men’s sins against them… And He has committed to us the message of reconciliation. We are therefore Christ’s ambassadors, as though God were making His appeal through us… We implore you on Christ’s behalf: Be reconciled to God.”

Together, we can do this!

The Mid Year Appeal is an important time for our media ministry, to share our unique operational needs and gather the financial resources required to keep going, and to keep growing. Therefore, we humbly invite you to join us once again with a tax-deductible gift by June 30, as you feel led (by the Lord). And don’t forget a significant part of the Mid Year Appeal is Visionathon which starts 24th May. Click here to find out on how you can get involved.

Thank you for your prayerful consideration, steadfastness together and the gift of faith.

In Jesus’ name,

Phil Edwards,
Chief Executive Officer

P.S. Although we are currently reaching one million followers, a month, the need (and our aim) is to reach 6.4mil to fulfil our mission in the Australian market – This is our step of faith!

 

Do All Religions Lead to the Same Place?

Do All Religions Lead to the Same Place? Can Christians claim Jesus is the only way to God? These are tough questions that a lot of people will find offensive in our modern day culture of inclusivity.

Developing a Sense of Adventure in Kids

How do we develop a sense of adventure in our kids? For some of us it comes quite naturally, but for others it can be more of a struggle.

Your Money and the Federal Election

There is far more at stake in a federal election than just monetary policy. However, the Coalition has responded with a policy to address the needs of first-time home purchasers and retirees alike.
