A Family on Mission
At VGF, we believe that God has called us together as a family. When we come together as a church, we become a display of the gospel itself. God created us to live in community, and we most effectively live out our mission as the family of God, together.
Above all else, VGF is about Jesus. We believe that everyone worships something. We worship what we treasure, what we value most. As believers, we worship Christ because He is the only One worthy of our devotion and affection.
Life is not designed to be lived alone. In a world where isolation is the norm and it's easy to get lost in the crowd, we need community and relationships more than ever. True growth and change come from deep relationships centered around the Good News of Jesus Christ. God created us to live in community, and we most effectively live out our mission as the family of God, together.
Making Disciples is our primary goal as a church. To make disciples means “to make learners.” Being a disciple means that we are constantly learning about and becoming more like Jesus. Disciples make other disciples so that Christ may be glorified and His kingdom spread on earth.
Relationship with God is the centerpiece of the Christian life. Just like any relationship, we have to cultivate our relationship with God through intentional time and conversation. We do not see prayer as merely a way to get things from God but as a way to get more of God himself.
