 Beulah Baptist Church at 106 Beulah Church Road, Crescent City, Fl is having a "Gospel Concert." We will host the group "Eternal Vision" which is a great Gospel group. Eternal Vision is an exciting and energetic group that has been a favorite of Gospel music fans for more than 20 years. The group is known for a progressive sound that is still respectful to the "old standards" that Gospel music fans have come to love. Eternal Vision uses music, comedy, and testimony to capture the audience's attention while they deliver the Gospel of Jesus Christ that culminates in salvation for the lost, and encouragement for the saved. When you attend an Eternal Vision concert, you will have no doubt that this talented group is ministry oriented and talented beyond belief. This event is presented free of charge on Friday, March 5, 2021 at 6:00 PM. We invite you to attend and want you to feel comfortable since we are social distancing and exercising caution to protect all who attend. You may call 904-806-2460 for more info
