Anticipation filled the air as tens of thousands of churchgoers gathered at our service venues all across the island on 5 January 2014.
The first Sunday of the year commonly known as Vision Sunday, has special significance for New Creation Church. Years ago, Senior Pastor Joseph Prince received a mandate to deliver God’s rhema word for the year at the start of the year and 2014 was no exception.
The service opened in pitch darkness and burst into a dazzling display of multi-coloured lights. Laser beams blazed from all corners of the stage and danced to the high-energy background music.
As the music gathered momentum, another surprise was underway as Visual Arts servers took position for their dance performance. Through the use of LED light suits, the dancers emerged and vanished into the dark within split seconds. With every perfectly executed step, the performers’ sleek popping dance moves left the roaring crowd wanting for more!
The highlight of the day took place when Pastor Prince came on and declared 2014 to be the year of greater glory. Expounding from Isaiah 60, Pastor Prince exhorted the congregation to keep their hopes high as they are called to be God’s beckoning light on this earth.
The services ended with a bang as the Worship Ministry performed a rock rendition of the classic hymn, How Great Thou Art. The lyrics of the song, “Then sings my soul… How great Thou art” resonated in the hearts of the churchgoers as they made their way out with a confident expectation of what God would do in 2014.
