The Vineyard story is driven by the reality that God eagerly desires us to experience His presence, and then to partner with Him in His work of showing His love to the world.
We believe that the Holy Spirit distributes gifts among us, enabling us to encounter God’s presence personally and corporately, and then to minister to the world around us in the power of the Spirit.
Because the Holy Spirit is active among us as God’s people, and in the world around us, our job as Christians is to partner with the Spirit, cooperating with him to move in our lives and gatherings.
Following the Spirit’s leading in our lives and in our churches is the first step toward experiencing the promised fruits of the Spirit (Gal. 5:22-23).
As communities of the Spirit, we are not simply implementing the best church strategies, trying to accomplish what is humanly possible. Rather, our mission involves praying and finding power from God Himself to accomplish what humans could never accomplish on their own.
We pray for the sick, we confront injustice, and we seek to hear the voice of God on behalf of others.
