Joy-filled Communities of Faith
Vintage Grace is a church made up of life groups, not a church with a life group ministry. As we seek to build joy-filled communities (future church plants) we must first become a joy-filled community ourself which is made up of many mini joy-filled communities consisting of joy-filled individuals. As a result, we have a very detailed and intentional Life Group structure and expectations:
1. Genuine spiritual life (authentic faith in God) produces ongoing spiritual transformation.
2. God uses human relationships as the primary means of stimulating spiritual life and transformation.
To have every adult member of Vintage Grace gladly commit to sharing their life with a small group of believers (Life Group) in order to increase the joy we all experience in God.
