Vision & Mission

Vision

Vision can be defined as a mental image of what the future will be or could be like: the ability to think and plan the future with imagination and wisdom.

Spiritually speaking, vision is seeing by divine revelation what God specifically desires a church to do in a city and nation. Vision is vitally important because God's Word says, "Where there is no vision (no redemptive revelation of God), the people perish..." Proverbs 29:18 (AMP).

Once God has revealed His vision, He instructs further, "Write the vision... though it tarries, wait for it because it will surely come..." Habakkuk 2:2-3.

This is why Carmel has not only documented God's initial vision to the church but follows its progress on a regular basis. The Church is updated at the start of each year with previous year's achievement of the vison and the strategy for the next year.
Gods vision for Carmel is Luke 9:2 - To preach the Kingdom and heal the sick.

Our Vision Has a Four Phase Strategy

Phase One

Cover Our City

Phase Two

Bless Our Neighbors

Phase Three

Send to the Nations

Phase Four

Touch the World

It is exciting to see all that God is doing and recognize how His vision is being fulfilled. If you have caught the vision, we invite you to help us make it come to pass.
