Our vision at the Vineyard is simple:
Transform our community and our world
one life at a time for God’s Glory.
This vision is carried out through our three priorities, which serve to give us a framework and a clear direction for every ministry and program in our church.
The upward dynamic of our church is our relationship with Christ expressed in worship. We are created and called to be a people of worship, which extends far beyond our times of singing (which we love), into all expressions of thankfulness and celebration of Jesus, including serving, giving, prayer, and spiritual disciplines. Everything we do needs to point people towards honoring God in worship.
The inward dynamic of our church is personal discipleship, growth in our faith and maturity with Jesus. We believe that your personal relationship with Jesus is the most important thing in your life, and, as you grow, the responsibility for spiritual growth begins to rest on your shoulders. We seek to equip people for a God-focused life through personal disciplines like journaling and through the support and encouragement found in community life through groups.
The outward dynamic of our church is our calling to go and “make disciples”. As a church, we exist for others, those who do not know and worship Jesus yet. We seek to serve and love our community and our world with the love of Jesus, to model His radically inclusive grace, and to extend the kingdom welcome to join the family of God.
