HISTORY: Pastors Dow and Deb Moses Started the New Vision Urban Ministries in 2006. Ten years later, the church moved from South Shores into the old Ice House on the corner of Eldorado and Van Dyke Streets to be able to serve the city of Decatur better.

The church began with only seven people. The focus of the church has always been to serve the community. The move to the inner-city has enhanced the congregations ability to reach more people.

WELCOME VISITORS: "We love God and love people. We are not a perfect church, but we serve a perfect Savior. You can come as you are and let God make you who He knows you can be," Pastor Dow Moses.
