The ministry of Vision of Hope Church of God got started through divine guidance and direction from the Holy Spirit on April 6, 2008, right in the height of a financial recession which at the time had adverse effect on the US economy. Over the years God has proven Himself, faithful to us many times in many ways. We are a ministry that was established upon solid biblical principles and we will always be guided by those principles.

At the very core of our ministry is the empowerment of God’s people, and we are motivated to live out our mission, which is; To empower believers and individuals to live victoriously, and to realize their God given potential. To instill hopes and dreams in the hopeless through the power of prayer, fasting, and the preached word.


Our mandate (To advance God’s Kingdom and fulfill Christ’s mandate) is wrapped up in St. Matthew 28:19-20: Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen.


Much emphasis will always be placed upon these two verses of scripture, one found Luke 4:18, and the other in Zechariah 4:6  


The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised. Luke. 4:18


Then he answered and spake unto me, saying, This is the word of the LORD unto Zerubbabel, saying, Not by might, nor by power, but by my spirit, saith the LORD of hosts. Zech. 4:6
