FAQ's Around the Vineyard

The Vineyard Church (at large) is a God-initiated global movement of churches with the Kingdom of God as its theological center. The Bible is our rule of faith and practice. Our desire is to know the Bible, do what it says, and experience the way of living it describes.

We embrace a full range of kingdom practices from proclaiming the Good News of Jesus, to healing and deliverance, to ministry with the poor. Vineyard churches embody a praxis that includes intimate worship, actively equipping people for ministry, responding to the initiative and leading of the Holy Spirit, and joining God’s mission in the world.

We welcome you and invite you to run this beautiful race with us!

The Des Moines Vineyard is part of a global family of 2400+ kingdom-minded Vineyard churches whose numbers are growing every day. Currently, there are Vineyards in 95 countries worldwide.
