OUR VISION: Bring em in, train em up, and send em out.
We'll make it simple.... Typically our service looks like this: Thirty-five minutes of worship with song, a relevant message for today, time of prayer and personal ministry. However we desire to follow God's direction by the Holy Spirit so things could change as far as the direction of the service goes....
We are contemporary in our character keeping our service style relaxed and inviting.
We are orthodox in our beliefs - we adhere to the Apostle's Creed.
We love coming into God's presence through song as we learn to worship Him in spirit and in truth.
We place a high priority on the Scriptures. We see the Bible as the source of absolutes and authority for our lives.
We also place a high value on reaching out beyond ourselves to those who don't know the Lord, to the poor and homeless, to our neighbors and friends.
We have a desire to become equipped to do the works Jesus' Word commands us to do. That includes praying for the sick, heartbroken and those in spiritual darkness.
We love to equip our children with the good news of Jesus Christ.
We have a strong commitment to missions and church planting.
As the Vineyard of Southwest Pittsburgh, we started out in the same vein as our founding Vineyard of Anaheim, CA. Our small group met in a home in Bridgeville. Having left a large church for reasons of conscience, we attended other churches on Sunday mornings, but still felt drawn to each other on Sunday nights.
Our Sunday night meetings grew in number and soon we were able to meet on Sunday mornings. After a period of time, we decided we wanted to be a church in our own right. After searching out different organizations (i.e., Assemblies of God, Holiness, Pentecostal and even the American Baptists), we found ourselves still not comfortable with any group. Someone suggested we look at the Vineyard. We sent out couples to the Wheeling and Monroeville Vineyards. Both couples reported back that this may be the direction we wanted to go. We met with the Vineyard Regional Director, who was also the Pastor at Wheeling. It was after that meeting, we decided the Vineyard was the place we wanted to be a part of if they would have us.
After meeting in Columbus and Wheeling, we became a Vineyard Church Plant in 1997. After a year and a half, we were released as an official Vineyard Christian Fellowship and were incorporated as a non-profit organization in January 1999.
