Principles of Christian Service
True Vine is obedient to the word of God. In doing so we strive to carry out our mission statement in our living. To that end we have adopted and adhere to five principles. They are as Follows:
Ask God, through prayer, to lead you to the place within His body were He wants you to serve. In the book of 1 Corinthians 12:12-31 the Apostle Paul tells us that there are many members that make up the body of Christ. Each members has a specific role or duty to perform. All members are vital to the body and no one member is more important than another.
Through the active participation in one or more ministries you will find that God can do a mighty work in, with and through you. You will grow in Christ through participation in the worship experience, Sunday school, Bible Study and other forms of Christian development offered here at True Vine. Your personal prayer life and Christian study time will also determine your Christian growth.
We are a church family where all are accepted for who we are, forgiven of what we’ve done and loved because of Christ. As we move forward in God’s Will we are persuaded that He has already made the way and fought the battles. We claim the victory but know that the work must be performed by us. We as a church are committed to rolling up our sleeves and doing a mighty work for the Lord.
God has given us a vision and while we may not be able to see it with our natural sight, we as His people will not be deterred because we walk by faith and not by sight. For that reason, and because God is with us, our future is bright.
