Ask yourself what you want people to do for you, then take the initiative and do it for them.
The Golden Rule and the Great Commission
How should we respond to a world filled with sorrow, violence and pride? We should do as Jesus commanded by responding in humility and treating humanity the same way we would want to be treated.
“So whatever you wish that others would do to you, do also to them, for this is the Law and the Prophets." —Matthew 7:12
And as a united group of believers in Christ, we are to carry out his commission to make disciples. Wherever we find ourselves, let's meet people with the life-changing truth of Jesus. And as we go, we want new believers to find strength in baptism and continued learning through the study of God's word.
What We Hold as Truth
About the Bible
We believe the entire Bible is the inspired Word of God and that men were moved by the Spirit of God to write the very words of Scripture. Therefore, we believe the Bible is without error.
We believe in one God who exists in three distinct persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. We believe that Jesus Christ is the second member of the Trinity (the Son of God) who became flesh to reveal God to man and to become the Savior of the lost world.
We believe that mankind was created in the image of God to have fellowship with him but became alienated in that relationship through sinful disobedience. As a result, man is incapable of regaining a right relationship with God through his own effort alone.
We believe that the blood of Jesus Christ, shed on the cross, provides the sole basis for the forgiveness of sin. Therefore, salvation occurs only when people place their faith in the death and resurrection of Christ as sufficient payment for their sin.
About the Christian Life
We believe that every Christian should live for Christ and not for himself. By obedience to the Word of God and daily yielding to the Spirit of God, every believer should mature and be conformed to the image of Christ.
About the Church
We believe that the church is the body of Christ of which Jesus Christ is the head. The members of the church are those who have trusted by faith in the finished work of Christ. The purpose of the church is to glorify God by loving him and by making him known to the lost world.
One Vision also agrees with the Lausanne Covenant.
