Conshohocken Vineyard Church is a part of a larger church community. The Vineyard Movement is a network of over 2,500 churches in 95 different countries, committed to seeing each generation reached by the power of the Gospel. With a view to embrace integrity in Christian character along with the activity of the Holy Spirit, each Vineyard church seeks to be an outpost of God’s compassionate love in a broken world.
From the beginning, Vineyard pastors and leaders have sought to hold in tension the biblical doctrines of the Christian faith with an ardent pursuit of the present day work of the Spirit of God.
We share core values with the broader Vineyard community:
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
