JBS - Biblical
The Bible is a living word designed to lead us into a personal engagement with God. At the same time, many of us find the cultural and historical distance between our time and the biblical era daunting.
At Vineyard we are committed to making the Bible doable through teaching that bridges the gap between the ancient truths of Scripture and the modern world, classes for enhancing biblical understanding and small group opportunities to engage the text with others.
We encourage an understanding of the big narrative sweep of the biblical story so that the various parts of the Bible are understood in the light of the whole of biblical revelation. At Vineyard we are especially concerned to flesh out the unifying theme of the "kingdom of God" with it's focus on the person of Jesus, who proclaims "the gospel of the kingdom."
