"God On Film 20143" Begins August 3, 2014
For several years during the Summer we compare what Hollywood is saying compared to what the Bible is saying. We call this series "God On Film," and this year is a good one!
2014 is being called the "Year Hollywood finds God" because seven block buster films are being produced about the Bible. This has never happened before in history.
So we are going to look at these seven films and compare them to what the Bible actually says. Sometimes Hollywood doesn't get it exactly right... and sometimes it does!
Here's the line up:
August 3- God On Film - Film 1 -"Son Of God"
August 10- God On Film - Film 2 -"God's Not Dead
August 17- God On Film - Film 3 - "Noah"
August 24- God On Film - Film 4 -"Heaven Is For Real"
August 31 - Communion Sunday, Baptisms and Child Dedications.
September 7 - God On Film - Film 5 -"Exodus"
September 14- God On Film - Film 6 -"Last Days In The Desert"
September 21 - God On Film - Film 7 -"Mary"
New Vision Children's Church
At New Vision we love kids!! In addition to our professionally staffed nursery available during every service, we also offer a fun Children's Church each Sunday just for kids. At 9:00 & 10:30 AM each week the kids gather separately from adult church to enjoy crafts, singing, and Bible stories.
Our main goal is to provide a safe place where children can learn about Jesus while their parents are free to enjoy adult worship without interruptions.
A Christian Without A Church Is An Orphan
There are thousands of homeless people in America, and many of them are Christians. You see, a Christian without a church is an orphan.
Here's what the Scripture says in Hebrews 10:25 (Contemporary English Version) "Some people have gotten out of the habit of meeting for worship, but we must not do that. We should keep on encouraging each other, especially since you know that the day of the Lord's coming is getting closer."
Some people teach that home meetings is the way of the Bible - but that's simply not true. The earliest Christians met in the Temple for worship and in homes for fellowship. Acts 2:44-47 (TLB) "And all the believers met together constantly and shared everything with each other, selling their possessions and dividing with those in need. They worshiped together regularly at the Temple each day, met in small groups in homes for Communion, and shared their meals with great joy and thankfulness, praising God. The whole city was favorable to them, and each day God added to them all who were being saved. "
This is what New Vision is all about... meeting together for worship on Sunday, and in small groups for fellowship during the week... plus, investing and inviting lost people to the Family of God.
It doesn't get any better than that!
The Prevailing Church
Someone recently said, "Church pulpits no longer have the most powerful voice in America - hollywood does!"
Is that true?
Think about it for yourself. Scholars agree that 44% of Americans say they attended church within the last seven days, not counting weddings or funerals. With a population of over 299 million, that's 163 million people attending church on any average Sunday, not big days like Easter, Christmas, or Mother's Day.
Compare that to the 40 million Americans who watched "American Idol" this year. Compare it to the highest rated TV show in history - the final episode of M*A*S*H in 1983 - with 106 million viewers.
About 10 million people have seen the movie "The Davinci Code," yet more than 160 million people attended church last Sunday - that should tell you something. Plus, every three days in America another church breaks the 1,000 attendance mark. There are now almost 400,000 Christian churches in the United States.
Consider this - the best selling book in the history of the world is the Christian Bible with 6 billion copies sold in 2,000 languages. The second best selling book is Pastor Rick Warren's "The Purpose Driven Life," written just a couple of years ago.
In 2005 Joel Osteen's Lakewood church became the first church in American history to have over 30,000 in attendance each weekend and by mid-2006 it had climbed to over 45,000. And get this, scholars believe the largest churches in America have yet to be built!
Make no mistake about it, the church is the hope of the world. Nine out of ten Christians were saved on a Sunday rather than Monday through Saturday. Why? Because most people accept Christ in a local church. That's why the local church is still the hope of the world.
Jesus said it like this: "... I will build my church and the gates of Hell shall not prevail against it." Welcome to New Vision Community Church - a prevailing church.
Getting Connected At New Vision Church

Step Two - Attend A Newcomers dinner. Sign up at the Community Table in the back of the auditorium.

Step Four - Join A ministry team and "Serve on Sunday."
Step Five - sorry, no step five - you have arrived after Step Four... Congratulations!
