Vision New England

Vision New England was founded in 1887 as the Evangelistic Association of New England, created to "employ evangelists, establishing means of communication between such workers and those desiring evangelistic services, assisting such workers and encouraging both workers and communities to engage in such work ... and for any and all other purposes legitimately incidental to or in aid of" sharing the love of Jesus.

While our methods have evolved, evangelism is still why we exist.

We bring believers together across historical boundaries to accelerate our shared mission: to make disciples whose lives reflect the redeeming love of God, who do justice in their communities, and humbly and relationally share their faith in Jesus.

We are an association network of more than 1000 ministries who want to see New England transformed with the love of Jesus. We believe God will do that when we build relationships and collaborate to make disciples who do justice and earn space to share Christ's love.

Mission statement

Vision New England is a "connecting ministry." We use targeted events and technology to connect leaders and believers, build relationships, share, learn and collaborate. We do all this to accelerate the work of making disciples who do justice, and share Jesus.

Statement of faith

In addition to the historical creeds, we believe the local church has the primary leadership role in advancing the Kingdom of God, a Kingdom mentality that empowers collaboration, and unity that honors our distinctions.

We embrace the Lausanne Covenant as an expression of our aspirations and calling, and an affirmation of beliefs we share.

New England is a place that needs Jesus. That's why in 1887 believers from seven denominations banded together as the Evangelistic Association of New England, now known as Vision New England.

Their visionary unity in Christ's service sparked an organization which would, in its first century, draw believers from some 80 denominations to unite in outreaches to diverse populations throughout the region.

Today, Vision New England's mission is to network individual Christians and local churches who are committed to evangelizing New England through healthy churches. We strive to be the best resource for equipping Christians in everyday evangelism, developing effective leaders, and growing a network of healthy churches.
