The Vineyard family of churches is a missionally-minded community, committed to carrying the words and works of Jesus into every arena of human life.
Joining the Father in what He is doing in the world, we have identified who we are, what we do, and where we are going as we take our place in the wider Body of the 21st century Church. The following three statements combine to communicate our purpose as Vineyard USA.
Who We Are
The Vineyard is a God-initiated global movement of churches (of which VUSA is a part) with the kingdom of God as its theological center. The Bible is our rule of faith and practice. Our desire is to know the Bible, do what it says, and experience the way of living it describes.
We embrace a full range of kingdom practices from proclaiming the Good News of Jesus, to healing and deliverance, to ministry with the poor. Vineyard churches embody a praxis that includes intimate worship, actively equipping ordinary people for ministry, responding to the initiative and leading of the Holy Spirit, and joining God’s mission in the world.
