High Country Vineyard Church, and the Vineyard Church as a whole, has a set of distinctives which helps define who we are, our personality, and our place within the broader Church.
EVERYONE GETS TO PLAY
Everyone can join in the fun - we believe anyone can do the work of the Kingdom.
THE MAIN AND THE PLAIN
Sticking to the roots - we teach the word of the Bible.
THE NOW AND THE NOT YET
The Kingdom of God is here now, it is also coming.
COME AS YOU ARE - BUT DON'T STAY AS YOU ARE
We welcome all to join us, no matter where you are in life, you will be loved no matter what. We are always learning, we believe that Jesus can change us, let Him.
We avoid hype. We go about our lives naturally, praying for healing and listening to God's voice.
REMEMBER THE POOR
We want to continue the work of Jesus' ministry and serve those around us who are lost and are in need.
FAITH IS SPELLED 'R-I-S-K'
We believe the call to be the Body of Christ involves getting outside of our comfort zones.
"COME HOLY SPIRIT"
This is our central prayer, we all need constant filling of the Holy Spirit.
WORSHIPPERS OF GOD AND RESCUERS OF PEOPLE
We are given to express worship and compassion in every part of our lives. This is our expression of loving God and loving our neighbour.
PLANT CHURCHES WHO PLANT CHURCHES
The very nature of the Gospel and the Church leads to reproduce kingdom outposts in the world – the planting of new churches.
EQUIPPING THE SAINTS
We will continually invest ourselves in training and equipping God’s people to do what Jesus did, equipping the saints for ministry – Ephesians 4:12
