Vision New England was founded by Alpine McLean and A.J. Gordon in 1887 as the Evangelistic Association of New England. Our mission was 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 with New England, evangelism is still why we exist.

Vision: We are an association of more than 1,000 ministries who want to see New England transformed with the love of Jesus.

Mission statement

Our role in this transformation is to build, support, and equip networks and ministries that make disciples (Matt. 28), do justice (Micah 6), and foster unity (John 17) to share Jesus.

Statement of faith

We embrace the historical creeds and the Lausanne Covenant as expressions of the aspirations, calling, and beliefs we share. We also affirm the local church as the primary leader in advancing the Kingdom of God, in a Kingdom mentality that empowers collaboration, and unity that honors our distinctions.

As the prophets of old called God's people back to faithfulness, we believe God is calling His people back to the fundamentals of our mission as His people ... to make disciples, do justice, foster unity, and share Jesus. We believe following these four commands inherently accelerates evangelism.
