What We Believe

We believe the Bible to be the inspired and only infallible written Word of God. 

We believe that there is one God eternally existent in three persons; God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit. 

We believe in the Blessed Hope, which is the rapture of the Church of God, which is in Christ at His return. 

We believe that the only means of being cleansed from sin is through repentance, faith in the precious blood of Jesus Christ, and being baptized in water. 

We believe that regeneration by the Holy Ghost is absolutely essential for personal salvation. 

We believe that the redemptive work of Christ on the cross provides healing for the human body in answer to believing prayer. 

We believe that the baptism in the Holy Ghost, according to Acts 2:4, is given to believers who ask for it. 

We believe in the sanctifying power of the Holy Spirit: by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a holy and separated life in this present world. AMEN



Sunday Christian Education/New Member Orientation

We place a high priority on Christian Education and the continued growth of students of all ages, spiritually, academically, physically, and emotionally. Teachers must serve as invaluable instructors and models of Christian living for students. We commit to having teachers, who have been called by God to teach and train them academically, attitudinally, and relationally on biblical precepts and principles.

Voices of True Vine

We serve as the primary choir for our ministry. As good stewards of God’s gifts and love, we seek through the spirit of worship to give from our finest resources. Having the musical wherewithal of talent and treasure the fingerprint sound of our worship music is both artful and delightful. We do not seek to perform, but use the beauty of art to act out our love for, praise and adoration of our merciful God.


This ministry seeks to reach beyond the boundaries of our local community to spread the gospel of Christ, by precept and example. Through the preaching of the Word, and acts of kindness, our mission is to bring all who seek Him, a greater revelation of His life, His teachings and be a demonstrable witness of His power through the outworking of His Spirit. Our current key areas of focus include international and local missions: Our street ministry, which is also known as S.W.A.T. (Soul Winning Attack Team), is designed to keep the great commission that Jesus gave his disciples which is to “Go into the hedges and highways and compel them to come into the house of God that it might be filled.””(Luke 14:23) This ministry reaches out to those in the community that have not yet given their lives to Christ by ministering to meet their spiritual needs through the word of God. 

Women Ministry

This ministry creates the kind of support system that will allow women to bind together in their strength and weaknesses. It is our goal that adequate support systems, through counseling, spiritually directed focus groups, and missions will meet the needs of women. We address these needs through: Outreach – Seasonal events, missions, women’s night out and community service; Service – Hospitality and mentorship programs; Spiritual Growth – Retreats, Prayer, Bible studies, Seminars. God calls us to do God’s will in God’s kingdom. As sisters, we must seek, we must reach, and we must support each other and we must demonstrate the fruit of God’s Gospel and His kingdom. .

Hospitality & Greeters

When you attend the Greater True Vine Church you are doing more than sitting in a worship service. Each Sunday when you arrive at our doors you will find a friendly group of people who want to help you feel right at home. The Greeters are there to help you find your way to the service and/or special event or celebration the Church is hosting. We have a great staff of real servants and they all love being able to minister to your needs.

Youth of all ages will find that our focus in everything is Jesus Christ. Our mission is to equip our youths with a panoramic view of the Word that will give them the examples needed to make a Christ like decision in whatever situation they are in. 

Intercessory Prayer

Serves as a channel to spiritually educate both adults and children on how to obtain and maintain an effective prayer life using the Word of God to relate to our everyday lives, teaching us how to cope with situations or circumstances that arise through prayer. We guide those wanting to increase their Biblical knowledge so that they can effectively communicate with God and the Gospel of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

Men Ministry

The vision of men’s ministry is to build the kingdom of God through our mutual love for Jesus Christ and to encourage each other to be servant leaders in our families, church and community.
