Rev. Richard Johnson was the first to preach the gospel on Australian soil in Sydney on 3 February 1788. The arrival of the Word of God on our shores was hugely influential in the shaping of modern Australia.
At the time of Jesus’ birth, the spiritual battle going on would have been epic. Imagine Satan’s fury when God upped the ante by invading his territory in person through His son, Jesus. It would have sent him into panic mode. So he set out to have Jesus killed, not realising that the death of [...]
Photo: Phil Edwards thrilled to be testing out the newly launched 104.3FM Vision Christian Radio station in Hobart on his portable radio. Dear friends, The love for God and generosity of our supporters never ceases to amaze me. We were privileged to hear many inspiring stories during Visionathon. The office is always abuzz during Visionathon [...]
“For just as the body is one and has many members, and all the members of the body, though many, are one body, so it is with Christ.” – 1 Corinthians 12:12 RSV In the last few years, the world has experienced a great shaking as news of wars and rumours of wars, economic chaos, [...]
Dear friends, We live in a world buzzing with activity, yet many people say they are lonely. The last few years of forced isolation escalated feelings of loneliness for some. And yet, some people can feel lonely in a crowded room. When left to fester, this emotion can transition into a deep sadness that overcomes [...]
Dear friends, ‘Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.’ Matthew 28:19 NKJV It is a blessing to come to work and hear the most amazing and inspiring stories of people who share how God has changed [...]
“Give thanks to the Lord, for He is good; His love endures forever.” Psalm 107:1 NIV Dear friends, I want to take this opportunity to thank you for your continued support of Vision’s mission to take the Gospel to the four corners of Australia and beyond using modern media. You may have noticed we’ve refreshed [...]
Dear friends, In the midst of today’s continuing uncertainties, I am so grateful to have the truth of God’s Word to stand on. The only thing we can count on in life is change! Lockdowns, new regulations, or even a change of government are all examples of things that don’t seem to remain the same [...]
Dear friends, Greetings in the name of the Lord, Jesus Christ – To God be the glory, for the things he has done (and is still doing as we share his life-giving Word across Australia)! The value of our work together continues to come into sharp focus with comments like this; “Thank you for your [...]
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 [...]
Dear friends, We all know that every new season brings both challenges and opportunities. Sometimes it’s hard to stay positive in the midst of uncertainty. That’s why hope is so important. To most people, hope is an unsure optimism. It’s a wish or desire for something without certainty of it being fulfilled. But for believers, [...]
Dear friends, I know it seems a lot is happening all around us at the moment, with traditional values being challenged more and more each day. But be reassured, God sees the big picture. Recently the resident Chaplain of Vision Christian Media, Ps Rob Mann, retired after 15 years of faithful service. You may know [...]
In late 2021 we had a glimpse into the life of a precious lady you have been helping through your support of Vision. Her situation is sensitive, so for the purpose of this letter we’ll call her Sarah. Her story really touched my heart.
In 2022 will you take the opportunity to worry, or the opportunity to trust God? Will you take steps to develop your faith, or are you happy to stay put (or worse, go backwards—perhaps without even realising it)?
PSALM 136 “Give thanks to the Lord, for He is good. His love endures forever.” (NIV) Dear friends, What do you see as you look back over 2021? The first response of many would be turmoil or disruption, but when I take a moment to refocus my eyes past those things, I can see God’s [...]
EVERYONE. The Lord is “not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance.” (2 Peter 3:9 NIV) That means the people we like and those we don’t. People we agree with and those with whom we clash. People just like us, and those radically different. Everyone. “How, then, can they call on the [...]
Dear friends, If you’re old enough you may remember the Beatles’ hit song in the 60’s called “Help”. John Farnham also did an impassioned version of it in the early 80’s. And if a modern day artist were to record it, I suspect it could become an anthem once again, especially the line, “Help me [...]
What is a revival? Images of Billy Graham preaching to a packed MCG might come to mind. Or tent meetings that go for days and days where the Word of God is preached, and many come forward to commit their life to Jesus Christ. There have been many great awakenings and revivals throughout history, but [...]
There’s a wonderful line in CS Lewis’ Prince Caspian where the Prince says; “Isn’t it funny how day by day nothing changes, but when you look back, everything is different…”
As a direct result of believers working together in unity, the good news of Jesus Christ is being proclaimed daily throughout Australia through Vision.
“What will it take for Australia to see revival?” Vision’s CEO Phil Edwards shares that he has been grappling with this very question over the past few months.
We live in an era of fast-paced change, but here’s a great truth to hold on to, no matter how much things might swirl around us.
Our CEO is thrilled to give you a ‘progress report’ on 3 exciting new initiatives underway that will mean God’s good news will connect with even more people across Australia through Vision.
2021 is off to a great start, with four new Vision stations being launched in January!
A little over twelve months ago, a new word entered the global vocabulary: Coronavirus.
