ABOUT VISION FOR YOUR BUSINESS

Encouraging, equipping and connecting Christian business people across Australia.

Vision Christian Media is a non-profit charity that has been working hard to bring the good news of the Gospel to Australia since 1986. Under our old name of UCB Australia, we were a key driver in establishing over 30 independent Christian Community radio stations during the 1990s before we became a broadcaster and publisher ourselves. And haven’t we grown since then! Now, hundreds of thousands of Aussies across the country turn to us daily for encouragement, good company, support and Biblical perspective. We’d love to help connect faith to your life, too.

The Word For Today

Much loved by hundreds of thousands of Australian Christians, The Word for Today is a daily devotional available in print, by email, on this website or in our app. It’s written by Bob and Debby Gass. Bob started his devotional writing in 1992, using inspirational material from forty years of involvement in Christian leadership as well as from the Biblical principles instilled in him by his mother.

We estimate that well over 200,000 people read each edition throughout Australia. In addition to the 95,000 complimentary printed copies, another 12,000 people receive this enriching devotional by daily email. Many more people access it through our free app. Distributing these copies free of charge and sending out the daily email is only made possible through the God’s provision via the generous donations of our supporters.

We are always encouraged by the tremendous feedback we receive about how God touches many lives, like this:

My wife and I work with homeless people ... We run a nine bed boarding house to offer them God's love in a practical... way. We are always amazed... how the timing of The Word for Today is so spot on... and how this brings such an encouragement to our Christian walk and quite often into the lives of those God has brought along to love and care for.

The Word for Today is successfully instilling in readers the habit of searching the Scriptures daily. Christian or not, all readers are provided with Bible-based guidance and encouragement.

My family and I live in rural WA with limited preaching/teaching resources and have found the radio programmes wonderful! ... Also, The Word for Today has been an encouraging and challenging read... A friend of mine is a new Christian who is not fond of reading books, however I signed her up for the email version and she now reads it without fail every day!

Vision Christian Prayer

Vision Christian Prayer (formerly PrayForMe) offers prayer support to thousands of Aussies every month. Some are  facing a crisis, others are in the valley of decision. It’s great to know that there are caring people ready and waiting to pray for us in that hour of need. Our prayer team is made up of individual intercessors and church teams and around Australia and can be accessed any time by phone, text, email or letter.

Jesus tells us that He cares so much about us that He even knows the number of hairs on our heads (Matthew 10:30). Nothing is too big for God to overcome and nothing too small for His attention. Whatever your need, we have people from churches around Australia who are willing to confidentially pray for your specific needs.

Our key prayer values are: BELIEVE, HAVE FAITH, BE SPECIFIC, PERSIST.

Visit the Vision Christian Prayer site if you would like us to pray for you, to join the volunteer prayer team or to find out more about how we operate.

Vision Christian Radio

The Vision Christian Radio story is amazing. From one regional station in 1999, today you can listen in any one of over 700 relay stations covering major cities, regional and rural areas. Each day we broadcast great music, engaging chat, encouraging real life stories, Scriptural perspectives, news and much more, including solidly Biblical programmes from esteemed speakers such as Chuck Missler, Ravi Zacharias and Greg Laurie.

Since our first broadcast in 1999, our growth has been a phenomenal testimony of God’s provision. Our heart is for the ‘forgotten’ isolated communities of Australia as much as for people who live in well-serviced cities. The majority of our stations are low-powered FM transmitters but we have a growing number of high-powered FM and AM transmitters including some reaching into the heart of several state capitals as well as major provincial cities.

For those not in range of one of our stations, it’s easy to listen through the internet by clicking the LISTEN NOW button at the top left of this page or via satellite. You can also download the free app for phones or tablets (Apple, Android, Windows Phone, Kindle Fire). And you can click on these links for more information on:

You’ll also find a full list of stations in the back of our daily devotional, The Word for Today.

You can help bring Vision Christian Radio to even more Australians! There are plenty of places that don’t yet have reception — to find out more, phone us on 1800 00 777 0 or click here. It’s not as hard as you might think!

You provide dynamic relative material to what is happening in the world today. It is honest and transparent and needs to get out to so many more people. Keep up the excellent work.

There’s a lot of product out there that calls itself ‘Christian’ but may have questionable Biblical value. We don’t carry any old thing — all our products are carefully chosen for their quality with an emphasis on relevance and spiritual integrity.

Thank you to all at Vision. I listen every day and night, am continually blessed and am grateful for all the items I have purchased. I pray that all your achievements will be reached so that many will be blessed and comforted like myself.

Vision Christian Tours

Although the name Vision Christian Tours is quite new, we’ve been taking people on tours to Israel for many years. For the moment, we are still focused on connecting Christians with the historic land of their faith, Israel — however we hope to expand this to include mission trips which will give people a chance to contribute to Christian media projects where Vision is already active across the Asia-Pacific region, and help local churches.

A visit to the Holy Land, or going on a missions trip, can be a life-enriching and life-changing experience.  Those who have come with us to Israel report a deeper sense of what God has done in the past and how He can impact their lives today. ‘A life-changing experience that has deepened my faith and brought the Bible to life’ is a common comment.

Our Israel tours are hosted by two experienced and passionate guides – Ian and Mandy Worby – and we offer pilgrimages to the Holy Land every year. On each tour, we work alongside local, professional messianic guides, who provide a detailed and informative commentary.

Every place we visit is a place of Biblical significance, and we run our tours at the right pace so you not only learn the history but experience it, too. For example, we visit the Garden of Gethsemane and walk amongst the olive trees that are old enough to have witnessed Jesus’ prayer and betrayal. We also hire a private garden where we can take communion together and spend time alone in prayer.

Tours bookings are organised through our Israel tour agency specialists, Olive Tree Travel.

Vision180

Following Jesus is not an easy task, especially for young people surrounded by a culture bend on distracting them off the path to His Kingdom. It takes some radically different thinking — doing a 180 on today’s culture to embrace the far better life God has in store. Vision180 Magazine (featuring WORD4TODAY youth devotions) and Vision180 Radio are helping young Australians understand what it means to think Biblically, using their language, music and more.

Don’t copy the behaviour and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God’s will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect.
Romans 12:2 NLT

Our desire to see young Australians embrace that transformation and become absolutely passionate followers of Jesus Christ who know how deeply He loves them — and then for that love to spill over to everyone who crosses their path! And even for you to figure out the calling He has for their life.

Sometimes we need a bit of direction (especially when we’re young), and a reminder about what God has already done. Way way back, when the Israelites would experience God’s power and love in their life, he would often have them create festivals, rituals or even build piles of stones to remind them of his goodness, so that they would not forget what it was to belong to Him. Vision180 stands as that reminder for them today rather than the constant negative drone of the world.

We know the impact God’s way of thinking has on your life and we love hearing stories of how young people are using Vision180 to to surround themselves with the influence of Biblical perspective and Live Different.

Visit the Vision180 site to listen to Vision180 Radio, order Vision180 Magazine, read today’s WORD4TODAY youth devotion, or sign up for the printed or email version. Or call us on 1800 00 777 0 to talk to one of our friendly team.

Statement Of Faith

Vision Christian Media is a non-denominational Christian ministry.

Our Mission Statement perfectly sums up what makes us tick: Vision Christian Media is passionately committed to building communities of mature Christians through engaging media and resources.

Our Statement of Faith is part of our foundation.

The following statement summarises Vision Christian Media‘s position in regard to matters of faith:

  1. We believe in one God, eternally existing in three persons, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
  2. We believe that the Bible is divinely inspired and therefore is infallible and entirely trustworthy, and is the supreme and final authority in all matters of faith and conduct.
  3. We believe in the Lord Jesus Christ who is God revealed in human form, and we believe in His virgin birth, and His sinless life, His miracles and His atoning death.
  4. We believe in the bodily resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, in His personal return, to consummate God’s Kingdom, and in God’s judgment of the world.
  5. We believe that all have sinned and are therefore under God’s condemnation and are separated from Him.
  6. We believe that redemption from the penalty and the power of sin is possible only through the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.
  7. We believe in the necessity of the work of the Holy Spirit to make the death of Christ effective for individual sinners, granting them repentance towards God and faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, and enabling believers to live holy lives and to witness and work for Christ.
  8. We believe in the resurrection of all people, leading to eternal blessing for the believers and eternal punishment for unbelievers.
  9. We believe that every believer is baptised into the Body of Christ by the Holy Spirit, and is responsible for keeping unity of the Spirit by loving one another with a pure heart.
