About-

The Isaiah Vision presents an "ecumenical strategy for congregation-based evangelism." Behind it lies the conviction that the task of witnessing for Jesus Christ to individual people and to neighborhood communities is, in the final analysis, the responsibility of the local congregation. It draws upon the experiences of congregations in many places and a variety of situations, and is in that sense truly ecumenical. Going beyond ideas and concepts, it addresses concrete methods for their implementation, and what it commends is thus a clear, ecumenical evangelistic strategy. That strategy is based on Isaiah's vision of the restored community in which both the young and the old find fulfillment and fill out their days, and people do not labor in vain but enjoy the work of their hands.
