Experiencing and Extending God's Life-changing love

The Mission

Raleigh Vineyard is all about experiencing and extending God's life-changing love until we all become like Jesus in our everyday, walking around, ordinary lives.

The Vision

Where are We Going From Here?
5 Simple words to remember: Safe – Dangerous – Table – Kingdom & Spirit.

Here are some phrases we use to describe what that looks like:

Building a Safe Place and Becoming Safe People
We are taking ongoing steps together for RV to be a safe place for all people to be true-faced, vulnerable and honest with one another. We are creating a safe place and becoming safe people with whom we can share our struggles and our joy, where we can know and be known.

Creating a Dangerous Place with God
We are nurturing a community that acknowledges and embraces God’s life-changing love. We are making space for the imminent presence of God to rearrange our lives, our priorities and our relationships. We will grow together in our pursuit of a God who is more interested in our transformation than He is our comfort.

Making an Open Table That Demonstrates Radical Grace and Social Justice
We will demonstrate the radical hospitality of God with the way we live with one another and our neighbor. We will practice radical grace that looks like Jesus and sounds like Jesus. We will stand against injustice and cry out together (with words and actions) for justice at home and beyond.

Living as Kingdom People Under our King, Jesus
We will orient our lives around the message and mission of the kingdom of God. We will submit our lives to the plans and purposes of Jesus. We will live the kingdom, trust the King and have a kingdom-shaped vision of our future.

Cultivating Holy Spirit Fruit and Power
We will cultivate an environment where the presence of the Spirit is welcome, transformation by the Spirit is sought, spiritual formation is our high value and the power of the Holy Spirit is practiced together and in our homes and in the streets.
