The Main and the Plain – Phil Strout, National Director – Vineyard USA
Our Vineyard USA Core Values And Beliefs booklet is an excellent resource for understanding who the Vineyard Movement is, and what we are all about. A full color PDF sample of that booklet is available to you, free, for download below. Here you will find the primary values that guide our time, energy, and resources as part of the Body of Christ. Our core values give meaning to why we do what we do, and summarize our purpose and activity in light of what we truly believe – and are committed to seeing occur in the world Jesus loves. These values remove any “ambiguity in mission” (Bert Waggoner, former National Director), and help us as we attempt to incarnate the ministry of Jesus in the daily life of our churches. Our Vineyard Statement of Faith is included at the end of the booklet.
We are a people of the Kingdom of God who…
– Partner with the Holy Spirit
– Experience and worship God
– Reconcile people with God and all creation
– Engage in compassionate ministry
– Pursue culturally relevant mission in the world
