“A place where people come alive.”
“Dry bones, hear the word of the Lord! This is what the Sovereign Lord says to these bones: I will make breath enter you, and you will come to life.” EZEKIEL 37:4
The vision of Inverness Vineyard Church is to be a place “where people come alive.” We believe that when people encounter Jesus, the adventure in life really begins. That we come alive and begin to step into an exciting future and the promise of eternal life spent with God, that impacts not only our lives but the life of the city. We long to lead the city of Inverness into life, so to do that we will try to keep these eight important values at the core of who we are and in everything we do:
RELEVANT // living a faith filled life in a way that people can relate to that is accessible whatever your background or experience of church or God.
FUN // church is to be fun and enjoyed! we don’t take ourselves seriously but we take god seriously.
THE HOLY SPIRIT // WE LOVE GODS PRESENCE TO HEAL, SAVE, AND SEE MIRACLES THAT ARE SO UNDENIABLY HIM, WE LOVE THAT HE USES US IN HIS MISSION.
ADVENTURE // being a people who are bold, take risks and invite people to join IN WITH US at every opportunity.
worship // BEING A PEOPLE WHO SING SONGS TO GOD, NOT FOR ANYTHING IN RETURN BUT TO REMIND US AFRESH OF HIS GREAT LOVE FOR US.
THE BIBLE // we believe in the power and authority of the bible and we will teach from it regularly, it’s as relevant today as it’s ever been.
FAMILY // we want people to not just be part of a crowd but part of a life giving, honest, real community. there is a place for everybody.
SERVE // We will be a group of people passionate and deliberate about loving and serving our city.
