What We Believe

Statement of Faith

One God, Three Persons
There is only one true God who is the eternal King, Creator and Redeemer of all that is. He is perfectly holy, just, loving and truthful. He has revealed Himself to be eternally self- existent – one being in three persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.
The Bible
The Bible is the inspired and only infallible and authoritative Word of God.
Humanity
Humankind was created in the image of God to know and enjoy Him, yet we willfully rejected the Lordship and glory of God for which we were intended. Because of this, sickness, death and judgment entered the world and now creation experiences the effects and consequences of sin.
Jesus Christ
The Lord Jesus Christ, the one and only Son of God, was conceived of the Holy Spirit, born of the virgin, Mary, and is God’s Anointed One, empowered by the Holy Spirit to inaugurate God’s Kingdom on earth. He was crucified for our sins, died, was buried, resurrected and ascended into heaven, and is now alive today, in the presence of God the Father and in His people. He is “true God” and “true man.”
Salvation & Grace
We are saved by God’s grace, through faith in the person and work of Jesus Christ. Anyone can be restored to fellowship with God through repenting, believing and receiving Jesus as their Savior and Lord. The Holy Spirit convicts, regenerates, justifies, and adopts us as we enter the Kingdom of God as His sons and daughters.
The Church
The Church consists of all who put their faith in Jesus Christ. He gave His church the ordinances of Baptism and Communion. The Church exists to carry on the ministry of Jesus Christ and further advance His kingdom by undoing the works of the enemy, preaching and living the good news of God’s love, discipling the nations, baptizing and teaching them to love and obey God.
Holy Spirit
In the sanctifying power of the Holy Spirit, by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live holy and minister super-naturally. The baptism of the Holy Spirit according to Acts 1:4-8 and 2:4 is poured out on believers that they might have power to be witnesses.
The Cross
The victorious redemptive work of Christ on the cross provides freedom from the power of the enemy – sin, lies, sickness and torment.
Return of Christ
In the ever increasing government of God and in the Blessed Hope, which is the glorious visible return of our Lord Jesus Christ for His overcoming bride – His church. Heaven and hell are real places. There will be a resurrection of the saved and the lost, the one to everlasting life and the other to everlasting death.

Relational
Values
The eight Relational Values expressed below are not “mission statement” type values, but rather are inter-personal in nature and represent how we believe Jesus wants us to see and relate to each other. We want to establish a community culture where these values are demonstrated and displayed so as to create an environment of safety and trust.
Non-Negotiable Unconditional Love
Love that is genuine is always offered without condition or negotiation between the giver and the receiver. It is not the result of a promise of future performance on the part of any party. Further, putting this kind of genuine love first and last in every situation keeps us in the abiding Presence of God. Love first heals and then seals every relational problem. Offering genuine love mirrors the absolute love that Christ extends to us.
Relationships of Openness and Honesty
Relationships of openness and honesty allow us to drop our mask and image that we can unconsciously present to the world. In this way we live experiencing the intentional freedom and joy before people, just as we do before God. Open and honest relationships banish gossip and slander. They require us to speak to people, not speak about them.
Believing the Best
Believing the best about people does not mean ignoring their faults. We’re seeking to discover the hidden treasure their Creator has placed within them. We all are a work in progress and therefore deserving of mercy, grace and love. When we believe the best about one another, we lay the foundations of grace and honor on which we can build an atmosphere to grow deepening relationships.
Always Declare Our Commitment
Declaring our commitment to others is often the best way of receiving and understanding God’s commitment to us. Scripture is God’s declaration of commitment to humanity. His whole heart is in His Word to us. When we declare our commitments, our heart follows them as well.
Truth Wrapped in Love, Preceded by Grace
Truth expressed in compassion and love can bring healing to others. Truth is not just about being right, because inherent in Truth is the mandate of doing right. Grace extended will establish a place that allows acceptance and truth to combine with loving kindness… making people whole.
Character Before Gifting
Each person has gifts, however they can carry us further than our character can sustain. Growing in character will enhance and stabilize our gifts.
Give and It Shall Be Given
Giving is at the center of God’s heart. If God can pass it through us, He will give it to us.
Stewardship Not Ownership
Because God is the creator and giver of all things, Stewardship is the commitment to involve God in everything. When The Holy Spirit rules our life and identity, we strive to be in full cooperation with Him.Believing the best about people does not mean ignoring their faults. We’re seeking to discover the hidden treasure their Creator has placed within them. We all are a work in progress and therefore deserving of mercy, grace and love. When we believe the best about one another, we lay the foundations of grace and honor on which we can build an atmosphere to grow deepening relationships.
Other Distinctives

For any other questions, email info@vinelife.com

Non-denominational
Vinelife is not affiliated with any denomination or “type” or group of church organizations or structures. Vinelife is not subordinate to any other organization nor does it supervise any other church organizations. There is no question that we have been the beneficiary of information and experience from many streams of Christian belief and practice. We are very much part of the greater Body of Christ, we identify with that Body as a whole and recognize that other parts of the Church have much to contribute as well.
Charismatic
Vinelife is charismatic in its beliefs. What we mean is the modern definition of conferring of divine power and talents – known as “gifts”. We acknowledge the contemporary nature of the baptism of the Holy Spirit, the reality of signs and wonders and the application and interpretation of tongues. We pray for and have experienced supernatural healing both inner person and in the flesh.

So in terms of general identity, Vinelife is a community of “born again” and those in the process of being “born again” believers led by the living Word of God and the Holy Spirit, committed to living and sharing the “Good News” and operating in power promised by Jesus in John 16:5-15 (below) and described in 1 Corinthians 12:27-31 (also below).

John 16: 5-15

[5] “Now I am going to him who sent me, yet none of you asks me, ‘Where are you going?’ [6] Because I have said these things, you are filled with grief. [7] But I tell you the truth: It is for your good that I am going away. Unless I go away, the Counselor will not come to you; but if I go, I will send him to you. [8] When he comes, he will convict the world of guilt in regard to sin and righteousness and judgment: [9] in regard to sin, because men do not believe in me; [10] in regard to righteousness, because I am going to the Father, where you can see me no longer; [11] and in regard to judgment, because the prince of this world now stands condemned.

[12] “I have much more to say to you, more than you can now bear. [13] But when he, the Spirit of truth, comes, he will guide you into all truth. He will not speak on his own; he will speak only what he hears, and he will tell you what is yet to come. [14] He will bring glory to me by taking from what is mine and making it known to you. [15] All that belongs to the Father is mine. That is why I said the Spirit will take from what is mine and make it known to you.

1 Corinthians 12: 27-31

[27] Now you are the body of Christ, and each one of you is a part of it. [28] And in the church God has appointed first of all apostles, second prophets, third teachers, then workers of miracles, also those having gifts of healing, those able to help others, those with gifts of administration, and those speaking in different kinds of tongues. [29] Are all apostles? Are all prophets? Are all teachers? Do all work miracles? [30] Do all have gifts of healing? Do all speak in tongues? Do all interpret? [31] But eagerly desire the greater gifts.
