The Foothill Vineyard is one church in a community of churches called the The Vineyard:
A Community of Churches. This is a diverse group of churches that partner together to advance the Kingdom of God by communicating the gospel of Jesus in word and deed. Through many localized expressions, Vineyard churches aim to:
1. Worship God and stand on the ancient truth of Scripture, the guide for faith,
life and service.
2. Grow as people of both the word and Spirit, imbued with power for the purpose
of making and nurturing disciples of Jesus Christ.
3. Create reproducing missional communities of worship, discipleship,
evangelism and service.
4. Serve the Father in the power of the Spirit, following Jesus' holistic and
incarnational ministry of proclaiming and manifesting the Kingdom of God.
for information about the Vineyard please visit Vineyard USA.
Children are among our greatest priority. The Lord's heart is turned
towards the children and here at Foothill Vineyard, we recognize our
awesome responsibility to raise our kids in the "nurturing and admonition
of the Lord". We continually seek out those with a calling and heart to help
our children become disciples. We do background screening of all those who
wish to serve children to ensure the safety and protection of our kids.
