    Our Faith

    Vineyard churches have made a conscious effort to blend evangelical theology with charismatic experience. Our beliefs are consistent with what Christians have believed since the time of Jesus, but we also try to learn how to live them out by following the example of Jesus.

    Therefore we teach people to be open to the leading of God’s Spirit and to pray effectively for God’s Kingdom to break into situations on earth.

    Matthew 4:23 says, “Jesus went throughout Galilee, teaching in their synagogues, preaching the good news of the Kingdom, and healing every disease and sickness among the people.”

    Later, he trained His disciples to do exactly the same things (Mt. 10:7-8), and after His resurrection He commanded them to make disciples everywhere by teaching everything that they themselves had been taught (Mt. 28:18-20).

    So we try to do this, too.

    For a formal description of our beliefs, please visit the official website of the Vineyard In Canada and read ourStatement of Faith.

    Many people come regularly to our church and are valued parts of our community without a clear understanding or belief in every part of this statement (in fact we have tried very hard to create a place where people who are not even sure if they are Christians at all will feel comfortable and have a true sense of belonging), but all of our pastors and staff members are in substantial agreement with its essence (though not all would agree with every detail).

    We believe that theology is very important, but we think that God is even more concerned with the quality of our hearts. This is in line with Micah 6:8–“He has showed you, O man, what is good. And what does the LORD require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God.”
