We have a simple vision: ‘Joining God in the Renewal of All Things’. The great story of the Bible revolves around simple truth - God loves us and he is committed to restoring and healing our broken lives and the world through Jesus Christ. He invites us, his church, to participate with him in seeing his Kingdom come, his will be done on earth as it is in heaven.
INTIMACY WITH GOD: Our highest privilege and joy is our enjoyment of an intimate and profound relationship with God.
DEEP COMMUNITY: We want Vintage to be the place where you find your home in LA. The church is family.
LOVING MISSION: We are on mission together seeking the evangelization and transformation of society.
WORD AND SPIRIT: We are rooted in the unchanging truth and gospel of Jesus Christ, and hunger for the in-filing, presence and empowerment of the Holy Spirit.
Our name does mean something to us! It doesn’t mean that we wear Vintage clothing (though some do) or we are a church just for over 60s (though some of our beloved family are over 60)! We are called Vintage Church because:
In Christ. Vintage brings to mind a vineyard, and our primary identity as a community is to abide in the vine, that is Christ. He is our life, our vision, our hope and the focus of our worship and devotion.
Historicity. Vintage is intentionally rooted in the past. To be Vintage is not to be new. And neither is Christianity. We aren’t the next new thing. We don’t feel the need to innovate on the unchanging gospel of Jesus Christ. Our desire is to be a church rooted in and express the fullness of historical New Testament Christianity.
Mature. As a vintage wine ages, its flavors blossom, mature and reach their potential. So it is with the church. We are not perfect (by any means!), and yet we believe in an exciting future for the church. We believe God is maturing his church to be the pure and spotless bride of Christ and the the means of his in-breaking kingdom in our world.
