Welcome to New Visions Community Church...
New Visions Community Church, Inc. is affiliated with the Church of God in Christ, Inc., with international headquarters at 272 South Main Street, Memphis, Tennessee 38103. In this Church, the Word of God is preached, ordinances are administered, and the doctrine of sanctification (or holiness) is emphasized as being essential to the salvation of mankind. Our Church is commonly recognized as "Holiness" or "Pentecostal" in nature because of the importance placed on the events which occurred on the "Day of Pentecost," the 50th day after Passover (Resurrection Day) being necessary for all believers in Christ Jesus to experience. On the day of Pentecost, the first day of the week (the Lord's Day), supernatural manifestations occurred in a marvelous demonstration of power. Jesus had promised that those who would wait at Jerusalem would be clothed "with power from on high." The fulfillment of that promise was accompanied by three supernatural manifestations:
• The sudden appearance of the Holy Ghost appealed first to the ear. The disciples heard a "sound" from heaven which rushed with a mighty force into the house and filled it-even as a storm rushes-but there was no wind. It was the sound that filled the house and not a wind, an invisible cause producing audible effects.
• Next, the eye was arrested by the appearance of tongues of fire which rested on each of The gathered company.
• Finally, there was the impartation of a new strange power to speak in languages they had never learned "as the Spirit gave them utterance."
