About Our Church
Pastor Leon DuPree and Evangelist Allean DuPree
New Visions Community Church
Local churches are founded when God calls an Ordained Elder in the church to assume the office of a Pastor. Pastors are installed into the Office when they have either begun a work themselves or have been duly selected to take charge of an existing ministry by the Jurisdictional Bishop.
God placed on the heart of Pastor Leon DuPree and First Lady Allean DuPree to begin a work to reach the lost and the dying in the city of Rochester. While reading the Scriptures, meditating on the will of God for my life through fasting and prayer, God gave me the name by which He would have me call this ministry. The Scriptures that had the deepest impact upon me as I sought the Lord were the following:
"A new heart also will I put within you; and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you a heart of flesh."
- Ezekiel 36:26
Jesus did this by giving Himself for us. A new commandment I give unto you, that ye love one another,' as I have loved you; that you also love one another.
"By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another."
- John 13:34
"This is my commandment, That ye love one another, as I have loved you. Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends."
- John 15:12-13
"And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea."
- Revelations 21:1
"Him that overcometh will I make a pillar in the temple of my God, and he shall go no more out: and I will write upon him the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, which is new Jerusalem, which cometh down out of heaven from my God: and I will write upon him my new name."
- Revelations 3:12
