The words and voice of Jesus are what sustains us. We seek God through personal and communal prayer, choosing to trust God’s thoughts over man’s opinions.
In the words of A.W. Tozer, “What comes to mind when we think about God, is the most important thing about us.” We focus our attention on the truth and beauty of who God is through our songs, prayers, and lives.
The Holy Spirit desires to reveal the thoughts of the Father towards us. We actively pursue the gift of prophecy so that hearts can be encouraged and sons and daughters would be drawn to the Father.
Every gift we have comes the Father. We cheerfully give our resources to bless the church, serve the poor, and take care of one another’s needs.
Everyone is created in God’s image and deserves to be celebrated. We joyfully honor one another despite our weaknesses and shortcomings.
Relationships are often complicated and messy. As we mature, we practice emotionally healthy skills that help us communicate well, love through conflict, and walk in maturity towards one another.
In God’s family there is always one more seat at the table. We seek to always be inclusive, creating opportunities for more people to experience the love of God.
The gospel of Jesus is of heaven and of earth. We trust in the power of Jesus’ name to heal us body, soul, and spirit — making us whole in every way.
God invites us to co-labor with Him as friends. We employ our God-given gifts and imaginations to participate with Him in the restoration and renewal of all things.
Over the years, Vinelife has been influenced through various prophetic words that have affirmed and confirmed our unique kingdom identity as a church.
