We exist to bring glory to God by making disciples through gospel-centered worship, service, community, and missions.

Worship

We exist for one purpose–to worship the Savior of the world, Jesus Christ. He is the One True God who loved us so much that He gave up His life for us. Our worship is offered to Him because we are people saved by His grace. At VGBC, because we are a community of people who have been saved from our sin by God’s grace, worship is one way we express our gratitude to God.

Service

One of the ways we worship our Savior is by serving others. Jesus said, “I tell you the truth, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me.”( Matt 25:40 NIV) John records, “ For whoever does not love his brother or sister, whom he has seen, cannot love God whom he has not seen.” (1 John 4:20 NIV) Our service to others is one important way we show our love to God because God has saved us from our sin to serve Him and to serve others in His name.

Community

Both worship and service happens in community. When God gave us His grace, He called us to live in community with others who have also received His grace. “For just as each of us has one body with many members, and these members do not all have the same function, so in Christ we, though many, form one body, and each member belongs to all the others. (Romans 12:4-5 NIV) We need each other, and each of us is made stronger by bonding together. When we worship and serve in community, we have fellow Christians to pray for us, encourage us, correct us in love, help us bear our sorrows, and share happiness and joy with us. We are simply better when we are in community with other believers.

Community

Missions

The Bible contains the story of God’s mission to redeem all of humanity. As Christians, we are to share in that mission by supporting efforts to share the love of God locally and globally. “ But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea, and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.” (Acts 1:8 NIV) Missions is not optional. It is not something to do when everything else is completed. Jesus said, “Go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything that I have commanded you. And surely, I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” (Matthew 28: 19-20) Missions is the very heart of God. Therefore, Missions is also the heart of VGBC.
