mission & values
Our Mission Statement:
“By Keeping Christ at the center of Life we actively seek to reach the Lakes Region area of NH, and beyond, with the message of the Good News of Jesus Christ; to worship and adore Him with all our hearts, souls, minds and strength; to train and prepare God’s people for the works of service so that the Body of Christ will become a caring, creative, loving, healing, Spirit empowered community of believers committed to ministering the Grace and Kindness of Jesus Christ freely to all who come.”
There is a distinct feel to all Vineyard Churches. These values and motivations don't necessarily make us who we are, but they do help us to understand why we do what we do. Here is what Bert Waggoner, former Vineyard National Director had to say concerning these values:
"What difference do these core values make to the life of the Vineyard? They don’t make us different. They simply refine our understanding of who we have always been and bring to the surface what really is distinctive about the Vineyard—what is at the center of our centered-set movement. They are not new values; they have always been who we are. We must nurture these core values so that they continue to be evident in every Vineyard church. These values give us the reason for our existence. They will not change. As we have defined them, they apply to all our churches in all their diversity and will endure as the Vineyard grows."
