Culture is often defined as the understood personality, language, values, behaviors and beliefs of a particular group of people. The VFC Culture is a combination of all of these things and is a blending of our Mission, Vision, Core Values, Priorities and Motto. You could say our culture is the DNA of our church and it permeates our kids, student and adult ministries and outreach. Take a look at the VFC Culture.
We exist to empower you to live a great life with God!
We see a large family church with a global impact where people are empowered by our great God to experience these five greats: great love, great joy, great faith, the great commandment and the great commission.
1 John 4:4, Mark 12:30-33, John 15:11, Luke 7:9, Matthew 28:18-20
Our Core Values
We All Scream Green: Because we believe that God blesses a church in unity; we understand that church is not about any one person's personal preferences -- but about His desires. So, we gladly wear the VFC "green jersey" and are unified under the one vision God has given to our founders and lead Pastors. Psalm 133
We Have The Advantage: Because we know our success is not by our might, but by the Spirit's power; we are teachable, prayerful, attentive and eager to follow the guidance and advantage He gives us. John 16:7
We Are Loved To Love Others: Because we are loved by God, we have received His forgiveness, acceptance and approval through Jesus -- and therefore, we can freely share this same forgiveness, acceptance and approval with others because of Jesus. 1 John 4:10-11
We Live So That Generosity Defines Us: Because God so loved the world, He generously gave us His Son; we make it a point to live generously by giving our time, talents and treasures to further His cause and to help others. Isaiah 32:8
We Know Life Is Short, So Church Should Be Fun: Because life on earth is short compared to eternity; we believe church should be a place where fun, laughter, refreshing and joy abound. 2 Corinthians 4:18
We Let The Queen of Sheba Inspire Us: Because the Queen of Sheba was so inspired by excellence, innovation, creativity and happiness when she visited Solomon’s kingdom; we want our church to be an inspiring place for those who visit. 1 Kings 10
We Love the Basics: Because we believe spiritual maturity comes from being established in the basics of God's Word; we stay rooted in the Bible and are unapologetic in stirring people up in the foundational truths. Colossians 1:28-29
We Live By Faith: Because faith pleases God; we believe God's Word and intentionally live out the faith adventure of trusting Him for big things. Galatians 2:20
We’re Becoming More Like Christ: Because we love the Lord, we have a desire to please Him, worship Him and become more like Christ. Colossians 3:23
We Love The Church Jesus Loves: Because we love Jesus and the things He loves; we love His Church. We have a heart for His house and we do everything in our power to build up His Church by serving, protecting and participating. Ephesians 1:22-23
We Influence Our Sphere: Because eternity is a long time, we want everyone in our sphere of influence to know Jesus and have a home in heaven. So, whether we are in the marketplace, government, education, family, media, the arts and entertainment or ministry, we do our best to share the gospel through our lifestyle, words, service and love. Romans 10:13-15
We Are Building a Movement Not a Monument: Because God sees things through the lens of legacy and generations, we keep an eternal perspective as we multiply, grow and expand locally and globally. 2 Timothy 2:2
Great Worship Services
We believe we should give our very best to God and those who attend each weekend, so we focus on making our worship services top notch - full of great worship, great joy and a great message from God's Word.
Great Outreach Ministries
We are passionate about taking the gospel beyond the four walls of the church. We know we can't do every outreach idea that comes to mind, but we can make sure the ones we do are done with excellence to have the greatest impact.
Great Kids Program
We are committed to helping every boy and girl hear about Jesus and His love for them; as well as helping them to grow in their childlike faith. When kids connect with a great children's ministry, they often are the catalyst for their parents and whole family to begin attending church.
Great Student Ministry
We believe in the young people at VFC and we love to see them flourish in their relationship with the Lord and in their zeal and passion for reaching others. Focusing on great student ministry for Middle School, High School and College students is critical for growing a lasting, vibrant church.
Great Training Opportunities
We love to see people growing in their own walk with the Lord and then sharing what they learn with others in their sphere of influence. We are focused on offering great live and on-demand classes, programs and events to train and mentor believers to be fully devoted and reproductive followers of Christ.
Because we believe Jesus is building His Church -- and there is no greater cause, organization or family to be a part of -- we live by this motto...
"There's no place like home. There's nothing like family. You belong here."
