We are the Millers!
About the Millers
We love people and investing our time and energy into seeing others grow in their walk with Jesus. We are eager to return to Peru to share the hope we have in Jesus Christ with a country in desperate need of the Savior.
Who We Are
We are the Miller family! We are church planting missionaries to Peru, South America with Vision Baptist Missions sent out of Vision Baptist Church in Alpharetta, Georgia under the leadership of Pastor Austin Gardner.

Missionary to Perú
I was raised in a godly home and heard the gospel from a very young age. As I grew I knew I was living for myself and I only wanted to claim Jesus when it was convenient.
When I was 18 years old I was confronted with my hypocrisy and I called on the Lord to be saved! My life was immediately transformed and I had a desire to serve the Lord with the rest of my life.
I grew up in a christian home and was constantly surrounded by God’s Word, but it was not until the age of 12 that I could no longer ignore that I was not right with God.
That year I attended my church’s youth camp where the gospel was presented. It was there that I accepted the gift of salvation and God changed my life to live for Him!
Our Generation Training Center (OGTC), led by Pastor Robert Canfield, has been instrumental in preparing us for a life in ministry. Classroom education is paired with practical training resulting in comprehensive ministry preparation.
We seek to emulate and reproduce the model that has been set by Vision Baptist Church and OGTC.
Our first two years on the field will be spent working under veteran missionary David Gardner in an established and thriving ministry. During this time we will learn Spanish and adapt to culture as well as serve in the ministry under his leadership.
Evangelize: We believe that more than social or political improvements, the people of Peru need to hear the preaching of the gospel. We believe that the preaching of the cross is the power of God!
Disciple Believers: We believe our responsibility does not stop when people believe the gospel, but that we teach them through scripture and personal example how to live a life pleasing to God.
Plant Churches: We believe that the local church is God’s design for reaching the world with the gospel. We plan to start multiple local churches and multiply the gospel witness across Peru and the world.
We believe that in order to be most effective, we need to train men that will plant churches and train more men.
We believe that the Bible is the Word of God, and that it is divinely inspired. We believe in the plenary, verbal inspiration, that it is the only complete and final revelation of the will of God to man, and the supreme, infallible authority in all matters of faith and conduct.
We believe in the Trinity, the unity of the Godhead. There are three persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. They are equally perfect in every divine quality, and execute distinct but harmonious oices in the great work of redemption. We believe in God the Father. We believe in Jesus Christ. We believe in the Holy Spirit.
We believe in God the Father, an infinite, personal spirit, perfect in holiness, wisdom, power and love. We believe that He infallibly foreknows all that shall come to pass, that He concerns Himself mercifully in the aairs of men, that He hears and answers prayer, and that He saves from sin and death all who come to Him through Jesus Christ.
We believe in Jesus Christ, God’s only begotten Son, conceived by the Holy Spirit. We believe Jesus Christ is God. We believe in His virgin birth, sinless life, miracles, and teachings. We believe in His substitutionary atoning death, bodily resurrection, ascension into heaven, perpetual intercession for His people, and personal visible return to earth.
THE HOLY SPIRIT
We believe in the person of the Holy Spirit who came forth from the Father and Son to convict the world of sin, righteousness, and judgment, and to regenerate, sanctify, and empower all who believe in Jesus Christ. We believe that the Holy Spirit indwells every believer in Christ, and that He is an abiding helper, teacher and guide.
We believe that all men by nature, choice and practice are sinners, but that “God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” We believe, therefore, that those who repent of their sins and by faith receive Christ as Lord and Savior will rejoice forever in God’s presence, and those who refuse to receive Christ as Lord and Savior will be forever separated from God.
We believe in a literal Heaven, the eternal home of the redeemed. We believe Heaven to be the literal place where the saved will live forever in the eternal bliss and blessings of God. We believe in Hell, the Christ- less eternity for the lost, where there will be burning and tormenting for those without salvation, who have refused to receive the gospel and Jesus Christ as Lord. We believe that Hell, unbelievers, Satan and all the fallen angels shall be cast into the lake of fire to be tormented day and night forever and forever.
We believe salvation involves the redemption of the whole man, and is oered freely to all who accept Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior, who by His own blood obtained eternal redemption for the believer. In its broadest sense salvation includes regeneration, justification, sanctification, and glorification. There is no salvation apart from personal faith in Jesus Christ as Lord.
We believe in baptism by immersion aer salvation with no merit for salvation in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Ghost (Spirit). We reject infant baptism and any form of sprinkling for infants or adults. Baptism is an outward expression of our faith in Jesus Christ and simply a public testimony of what God has done by His grace.
We believe in the local church, consisting of a company of professing, born-again believers in Jesus Christ, immersed on a credible confession of faith, and associated for worship, work and fellowship. We believe that to those local churches we are committed, for perpetual observance of the ordinances of baptism and the Lord’s Supper, and that God has laid upon these churches the task of proclaiming to a lost world the acceptance of Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior, and the enthroning of Him as Lord and Master. Its scriptural oicers are pastors and deacons. While both men and women are gied for service in the church, the oice of pastor is limited to men as qualified by Scripture.
We believe in the eternal security of all blood-bought individuals or believers and that such inheritance is incorruptible, and undefiled, and that each believer is kept by the power of God and nothing can separate us from Him, ourselves included. We believe that believers can lose the joy of fellowship with God, can grieve God and can quench the Spirit of God in him or her, but not lose his/her salvation.
