What is the Purpose of The Vine Church?
The purpose of The Vine Church is to:
Join together in celebration and fellowship,
Encourage and equip each other,
Serve our community and body of believers,
Uplift the Father in praise and worship, and
Share with others The Vine, Jesus.
The purpose of our church is summarized in three key scriptures:
•THE GREAT COMMANDMENT
Jesus said, “Love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, and all your mind. This is the first and greatest commandment. A second is equally important: Love your neighbor as yourself. The entire law and all the demands of the prophets are based on these two commandments.” Matthew 22:37-40 NLT
•THE GREAT COMMISSION
Jesus said, “Go and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. Teach these new disciples to obey all the commands I have given you.” Matthew 28:19-20 NLT
•THE VINE CHURCH VERSE
Jesus said, “I am The Vine, you are the branches; he who abides in Me and I in him, he bears much fruit for apart from Me you can do nothing.” John 15:5 NKJV
How do I ABIDE in Jesus like John 15:5 says?
Apply God’s word through MATURING AS BELIEVERS.
Oh, the joys of those who do not follow the advice of the wicked, or stand around with sinners, or join in with scoffers. But they delight in doing everything the LORD wants; day and night they think about his law. They are like trees planted along the riverbank, bearing fruit each season without fail. Their leaves never wither, and in all they do, they prosper. Psalm 1:1-3 NLT
Be with believers in COMMUNITY.
All the believers devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching, and to fellowship, and to sharing in meals (including the Lord’s Supper), and to prayer. Acts 2:42 NLT
Intimacy with Jesus through WORSHIP.
