Vineyard Church of Elgin is part of a church family known as Vineyard USA. Congregations in the Vineyard are autonomous; while there may be wide variety in worship, ministry, and any number of other things, we also share much in common due to our common heritage. Our values and distinctives are what unite us with the 600+ other Vineyard churches across the country and the 2,500 around the world. The Vineyard has been called one of the fastest growing church movements of our time.
Often using the term “empowered Evangelicals,” the Vineyard seeks to blend the best of Evangelical traditions (a focus on Christlike character and a deep regard for the Scriptures) with the best of Pentecostal/Charismatic traditions (welcoming the empowering of the Holy Spirit). We like to say that we are the “radical middle.” We stand on the Word of God, and we stand on the conviction that all the biblical gifts of the Holy Spirit are alive and active today.
