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.
Worship is an environment in which we experience God – so we make it a priority in our gatherings.
We have always prayed faithfully for the sick – in our church services and in the everyday workplaces and neighborhoods we inhabit.
We are committed to the careful study and interpretation of the Bible, and to the faithful preaching of its message.
Our churches aim to be outposts of the kingdom of God, bringing hope and help from Jesus to anyone who wants it.
