Temple of Refuge is a local church with a global vision. This vision was given by God to Pastor Joseph so he could fulfill his destiny as missionary of God. To understand this vision one must understand that this is not a typical run-of-the-mill church, rather it is a ministry. This means that everyone who is a member of this church must work equally as hard as the head pastor to fulfill the role of the church in the community.

As a church we must spread the gospel and speak of the wondrous works of our Lord and Savior: Jesus Christ. But the true basis of our belief is worship. When asked, an average teenager who attends this church regularly would say, "Temple of Refuge is a place where God is glorified, the saints are edified, and the enemy is terrified," the emphasis, of course, being on God being glorified. We believe (and we strongly accentuate this belief) that worshiping God takes precedent over all other things.
