Our vision is built on our Core Values, the emphasis and heart of this ministry. Each of these values correlate to an aspect of the five-fold ministry; Apostle, Prophet, Evangelist, Pastor, and Teacher to fully equip the Body of Christ according to Ephesians 4:11-12.
We believe in building strong relationships and healthy families that reproduce the living principles of the Kingdom of God from generation to generation. We are a multigenerational church!
We prioritize equipping and empowering believers of all ages in the Word of God, the Gifts of the Spirit, and the Power of God, to fulfill their destinies by serving others.
Timothy 2:15, Daniel 7:18
When God’s prophetic purposes are revealed, they bring breakthrough, increase, and fulfillment of destiny to everyone who hears them.
We can use God’s authority to extend His kingdom into every area of culture by changing lives and impacting territories.
Matthew 28:17-20, Revelation 11:15
As we reap every benefit of our relationship with God, we reach others with His love, and touch nations with His Truth.
As the senior leaders of Vision Church @ Christian International, Apostles Tom and Jane Hamon have given their lives to investing in people and building the kingdom of God. In addition to building a thriving local church, they continue to carry God's voice to the nations by traveling extensively and ministering to people all over the world. Apostles Tom and Jane have raised a team of prophetic ministers through Christian International Ministries that have a passion to see people come fully alive to their calling and destiny in Jesus and to awaken the church to its highest purposes by hearing God’s voice, understanding His principles, and bringing transformation to the world around them.
In their more than 30 years of ministry together, they have built a thriving local church, traveled to more than 50 nations, and helped to lead Christian International Ministries, founded by Pastor Tom’s father Dr. Bill Hamon. They have each been awarded honorary Doctorate of Divinity degrees from Christian International School of Theology, and both are featured instructors at Bible colleges and institutes around the world.
As a husband and wife team, they utilize their complimentary gifts and abilities to serve the people of God with practical wisdom, spiritual revelation, and inspiration to fulfill destiny. Their passion is to see people come fully alive to the wonderful plans God has for them and to help the church awaken to its highest purposes by hearing God’s voice, understanding His principles, and bringing transformation to the world around them.
Pastor Jane, a gifted teacher and storyteller, has written three insightful books including Dreams and Visions, The Deborah Company, and The Cyrus Decree. The daughter of a meteorologist, Pastor Jane is, among other things, a self-proclaimed Weather Channel addict, a hobby travel agent, a connoisseur of Rice Krispies Treats, and a strong believer in the truth that a hot bath will solve many of life’s problems.
Born in Washington State, Pastor Tom relishes fresh mountain air and has a weakness for Rainier cherries. He enjoys playing basketball with the guys and maintains an undying loyalty to the Dallas Cowboys.
Pastors Tom and Jane love to see strong, healthy families grow, and of their many roles and responsibilities, they most enjoy spending time with their own family. The proud parents of three children, and “Mimi” and “Papa T” to a growing number of grandchildren, they make their home along the sugar-white sands of Florida’s Emerald Coast surrounded by their loving family, inspiring church, and great friends.
… and continues to work hand-in-hand with that organization. Christian International was founded by Dr. Bill and Evelyn Hamon in San Antonio, TX in 1967 as a correspondence Bible College with courses available from the Associate through Doctoral levels of study. In 1975, CI was relocated to Phoenix, AZ where the Friday Night School of the Holy Spirit was born. With an emphasis on activating people in their spiritual gifts and restoring apostles and prophets to active function, Bishop Hamon became a world-wide leader in the Body of Christ.After relocating the ministry of CI to Florida in 1984, we began meeting mid-week in the shipping room of CI Ministries. CI Family Church held our first Sunday morning service in January of 1987 with the on-going Friday Night School of the Holy Spirit each week. Since that time, we have raised up and sent out numerous leaders who now serve the Lord as successful local church pastors, apostles, prophets, business people and government leaders, throughout the US as well as many nations in the earth.As the headquarters church for Christian International Ministries Network, we work closely with Dr. Tim Hamon, CEO of CIMN and their staff. Each year we are privileged to host several conferences, most notably our Prophetic Watchman and Intercessor Conference the first week of April and our International Gathering of Apostles and Prophets (IGAP) the third week of October. In addition, we host monthly training modules to equip the saints. We also house our Ministry Training College (MTC) which is our on-campus Bible College. Our conferences and our college draw people nationally and internationally on a regular basis.
Since we believe that every saint is a minister, we have the joy of seeing our members thrive as they discover their gifts and callings in Christ. Our local church ministry teams have ministered to thousands of people, bringing the prophetic Word of the Lord, healing, deliverance, salvation and the infilling of the Holy Spirit. Our worship teams have written and recorded hundreds of songs releasing present truth messages. Our prayer teams have opened the heavens, bringing change to our area and even nations. Our outreach teams have seen hundreds saved and delivered. Our family ministry teams have brought breakthrough to many and raised up a generation of young believers that are changing culture today.
As an apostolic sending center, we have sent teams to over fifty nations. With a growing emphasis on having a vision for our future, we changed our name to Vision Church @ Christian International in 2010.
Christian International Ministries Network is a group of ministries dedicated to helping the Body of Christ fulfill our God-given destiny. Founders Dr. Bill and Evelyn Hamon have led CI from its beginning as a Bible School in 1967 to an internationally recognized ministry today. Dr. Hamon is a forerunner in restoring an understanding of prophetic ministry to the Church. His heart is to impart his 50-plus years of ministerial experience and insight to raise up others.
CI’s vision to play a vital role in the bringing of the restoration of prophets and apostles to the Church, is based upon Acts 3:20-21: “And he shall send Jesus Christ, which before was preached unto you: Whom the heaven must receive until the times of restitution of all things, which God hath spoken by the mouth of all his holy prophets since the world began.” (emphasis added). This restoration of “all things” includes the restoration of apostles and prophets to the Church to take their place alongside evangelists, pastors, and teachers. Together these “five-fold” ministers will equip the believers for the work of the ministry (Eph. 4:11-12).
Mercy Multiplied is a nonprofit Christian organization dedicated to helping young women break free from life-controlling behaviors and situations, including eating disorders, self-harm, drug and alcohol addictions, unplanned pregnancy, depression, sexual abuse, and sex trafficking. We hope to help every woman we serve experience God’s unconditional love, forgiveness, and life-transforming power.
The Bible is God’s Word to all people. It was written by human authors under the supernatural guidance of the Holy Spirit. Because it was inspired by God, the Bible is truth without any mixture of error and is completely relevant to our daily lives.
God has existed in relationship with Himself for all eternity. He exists as one substance in three persons: the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. Although each member of the Trinity serves different functions, they each possess equal power and authority.
God is great: He is all powerful, all knowing, ever present, unchanging, completely worthy of our trust, and above all, Holy. It is in Him that we live, move and exist. God is good. He is our Father. He is loving, compassionate, and faithful to His people and His promises.
Jesus Christ is completely human but, at the same time, completely God. He is the only plan for bringing people who are far from God back into a right relationship with God. He lived a perfect life, so that He could be a substitution for us in satisfying God’s demands for perfection. He defeated death in His resurrection so that we can have life.
Isaiah 7:14; 53; Matthew 1:18-23; 3:17; 8:29; 14:33; 16:16; 28:5-6; Luke 22:70; 24:46-47; John 1:1, 14; 10:30; 11:25-27; 17:1-5; Acts 1:9; 2:22-24; 7:55-56; Romans 1:3-4; 3:23-26; 8:1-3; 10:4; 1 Corinthians 8:6; 2 Corinthians 5:19-21; Gal 4:4-5; Philippians 2:5-11; Colossians 1:15; 2:9; 1 Timothy 2:5-6; 3:16
The Holy Spirit’s presence assures us of our relationship with Christ. He guides believers into all truth and exalts Christ. He convicts people of their sin, God’s righteousness, and the coming judgment. He comforts us, gives us spiritual gifts, and makes us more like Christ.
Genesis 1:2; Psalm 51:11; 139:7 ff.; Isaiah 61:1-3; Joel 2:28-32; Mark 1:10; Luke 1:35; 4:1; 11:13; 12:12; John 15:26; 16:7-14; Acts 1:8; 2:1-4; 13:2; Romans 8:9-11, 14-16, 26-27; 1 Corinthians 3:16; Ephesians 1:13-14; 2 Peter 1:21; Revelation 22:17
Man was created to exist forever. He will exist either eternally separated from God by sin or in union with God through forgiveness and salvation. To be eternally separated from God is Hell. To be eternally in union with Him is Heaven. Heaven and Hell are places of eternal existence.
Man is made in the image of God and is the supreme object of His creation. Man was created to have fellowship with God but became separated in that relationship through sinful disobedience. As a result, man cannot attain a right relationship with God through his own effort. Every human personality is uniquely created, possesses dignity, and is worthy of respect and Christian love.
Genesis 1:26-30; 2:7, 18-22; 3; Psalms 8:3-6; 32:1-5; 51:5; Isaiah 6:5; Jeremiah 17:5; Acts 17:26-31; Romans 1:19-32; 3:10-18, 23; 5:6; 6:6; 7:14-25; 1 Corinthians 1:21-31; 15:19, 21-22; Ephesians 2; Colossians 1:21-22; 3:9-11
The blood of Jesus Christ, shed on the cross, provides the only way of salvation through the forgiveness of sin. Salvation occurs when people place their faith in the death and resurrection of Christ as sufficient payment for their sin. Salvation is a gift from God, and it cannot be earned through our own efforts.
Isaiah 1:18; 53:5-6; 55:7; Matthew 1:21; 27:22-66, 28:1-6; Luke 1:68-69; 2:28-32; John 1:12; 3:16, 36; 5:24; Acts 2:21; 4:12; 16:30-31; Romans 1:16-18; 3:23-25; 5:8-10; 6; 1 Corinthians 1:18; 2 Corinthians 5:17-20; Galatians 2:20; 3:13; Ephesians 2:8-10; Philippians 2:12-13; Hebrews 9:24-28; Revelation 3:20
The Church is a local community of baptized believers unified through faith in Christ. It is committed to the teachings of Christ and obeying all of His commands, and it seeks to bring the Gospel to the world. The Church works together in love and unity, intent on the ultimate purpose of glorifying Christ.
