VLM is a public charity based in Boynton Beach, Florida, USA. The organization supports charitable faith-based projects that are aligned with biblical principles and the organization’s mission.
TOTAL AMOUNT GRANTED TO DATE
The mission of visionLAUNCH Ministries is to glorify God by supporting The Great Commission (Matthew 28: 19-20): “Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you”. At the heart of our vision is a call to support those projects, which serve the Hispanic community and Hispanic “visionaries”. VLM gives grants to support projects such as church planting, church ministries, missions, biblical education, and other charitable organizations with similar goals and objectives.
Statement of Faith
- We believe the Bible to be the inspired, the only infallible, authoritative Word of God. [1 Thessalonians 2:13; 2 Timothy 3:15-17]
- We believe that there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. [John 10:30; Ephesians 4:4-6]
- We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in His personal return in power and glory. [Matthew 1:23; John 1:1-4 and 1:29; Acts 1:11 and 2:22-24; Romans 8:34]
- We believe that all men everywhere are lost and face the judgment of God, Jesus Christ is the only way of salvation, and that for the salvation of lost and sinful man, repentance of sin and faith in Jesus Christ results in regeneration by the Holy Spirit. [Luke 24:46-47; John 14:6; Ephesians 1:7 and 2:8-9; Titus 3:4-7]
- We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit, whose indwelling enables the Christian to live a godly life. [Romans 8:9; 1 Corinthians 2:14; Galatians 5:16-18; Ephesians 6:12]
- We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost; the saved unto the resurrection of eternal life and the lost unto the resurrection of damnation and eternal punishment. [I Corinthians 15:51-57; Revelation 20:11-15]
- We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ and that all true believers are members of His body, the Church. [I Corinthians 12:12, 27; Ephesians 1:22-23]
- We believe that the ministry of evangelism and discipleship is a responsibility of all followers of Jesus Christ. [Matthew 28:18-20; Acts 1:8; Romans 10:9-15; 1 Peter 3:15]
- We believe God’s plan for human sexuality is to be expressed only within the context of marriage, that God created man and woman as unique biological persons made to complete each other. God instituted monogamous marriage between male and female as the foundation of the family and the basic structure of human society. For this reason, we believe that marriage is exclusively the union of one genetic male and one genetic female. [Matthew 19:5-6; Mark 10:6-9; Romans 1:26-27; 1 Corinthians 6:9]
- We believe that human life is sacred from conception to its natural end; and that we must have concern for the physical and spiritual needs of our fellowmen. [Psalm 139:13; Isaiah 49:1; Jeremiah 1:5; Matthew 22:37-39; Romans 12:20-21; Galatians 6:10]
