Our mission:


In pursuit of our mission, we focus on six priorities:

1.  Worship: The highest priority of God’s people is to worship Him, that is, to give to God the worth that He ought to have in our lives. Worship is an expression of our love for God.

2.  Word: We believe that the bible is the final authority for our life and faith. It's not about Bible knowledge but how we are transformed in the way we think, act, and feel. Hearing and obeying God’s word is how we become like Him. 

3.   Fellowship: We exist to care for and to build up people, not programs. To do this we must first develop our relationship with God and his word then to one another in fellowship. 

4.   Ministry: We believe that fellowship ultimately leads to ministry (the sick, the lost, the poor). In simple terms, Ministry was the mission of Jesus.

5.  Training: Through worship, the word, fellowship, and ministry we train or equip people to do the work of Christ.

6.  Sending: We believe that God has called us to be a church that is relevant within our community. Our location is in Johnstown, but we believe that we have the ability to impact the many communities through the lives of our members. 


No one is going to single you out or ask you to stand up and give your name. Grab a free coffee, bring it into the Auditorium and relax. Here is what happens… 

  • Sing: For the first 20 to 30 minutes or so, we’ll sing some simple songs to God. Feel free to have a seat anytime during the worship service. Some people like to stand the entire time. Just be comfortable. Check out our Worship page if you are interested in learning more about worship at the Vineyard Community.
  • Giving: Just prior to the end of our singing, we take up the tithes and offerings. This is for those who value the mission of the Vineyard Community and are learning to give. We use this time to give back to God a portion of what He’s given to us. Remember, it all belongs to Him. 
  • Welcome: We’ll briefly tell you about a few things happening around here. 
  • Message: Our speaker will give a 30 to 40 minute message about applying God’s truths to life’s challenges. Check out our Online Sermons to sample the type of message you will hear at the Vineyard Community.
  • The Big Finish: Occassionally, we'll end with another worship song but mostly we close with a short prayer and that’s it. If you like, individual prayer is offered at the front of the Auditorium after every service. Feel free to grab another cup of coffee and connect with others.

What about our children?  Your children are important to us and we provide a full children’s ministry for infants through children 12 years of age.

What do people wear?  We are a come as you are church so most people dress very casually. The most important thing to us is that you feel comfortable. We’re pretty sure that what you wear doesn’t matter to God, so it doesn’t matter to us either!
