Mission & Values


Vineyard North Charlotte Mission:

To grow healthy communities of Jesus followers who announce and demonstrate the good news of the inbreaking of the Kingdom of God.

The Vineyard North Charlotte is a part of the  Vineyard Movement, a network of over 1,500 churches worldwide, 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.

Led in its earliest years by the late John Wimber, the Vineyard Movement has become one of the most influential church movements of the 20th-21st centuries. As an extension of the church movement, Vineyard worship music (Come, Now Is The Time To WorshipYour Love Is Amazing) has deeply impacted the experience of thousands of churches around the 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. Maintaining that balance is never easy in the midst of rapid growth and renewal. With our Core Values at center, we are seeking to take our place in the Body of Christ, serving alongside those who truly desire to experience God in their every day life.

What is the Vineyard?

That really is an important question. What distinguishes us from other movements, other churches, other denominations? Why do we even exist? When asking that question, we are really addressing the issue of core values. What are those core values that define us? Below are links to videos detailing each of our core values.
