More About Our Town & Church

New Vision is a 27-year-old growing church in Madison, NC with a heart to multiply God's glory on the earth. We partner with Southern Baptists, NC Baptists, and the Triad Church Network for the purposes of missions and the sharing of resources. Madison is what might be described as an extended suburb of nearby cities, which include Greensboro, Martinsville, and Winston-Salem. Our river-rich small town still has a tinge of the mills that made us, and she offers a lively downtown district with boutiques, restaurants, and other businesses. Within our borders and those of our sister town, Mayodan, you'll find parks, factories, supermarkets, and all the laid-back life you can gulp up. Our church is experiencing a season of rapid growth as we've celebrated 26 baptisms in the last 2 years, just launched a second worship service, paid off our mortgage in 2023 (now preparing for another one), and have nearly doubled in size in the last 7 years. Our children's ministry - the Wheel, and our student ministry - the Kiln, are booming, as well. And we have healthy, established ministries for men (Men of Vision), women (Titus 2 Women), seniors (Vintage Visions), moms (Melding Moms), and ladies' fitness (FaithFit), to name a few. We love serving our community, supporting the mission of Christ around the globe, sharing fellowship with brothers and sisters of the faith, and welcoming new individuals to the family. We gather in energetic, Christ-centered, contemporary worship on Sundays and in groups for fellowship and discipleship throughout the week.
