Theology of Missions
At The Vine, we believe that missions is for all people, in all places, at all times. Living missionally is our response to accepting that God created us with purpose and that His creation exists to glorify Him.
Our call to live missionally was never intended to be restricted to a church ministry or special vocational calling. It is meant to permeate across all areas of our lives and shape how we see our relationships with God, with others, and His creation.
Yet finding a connection between our faith and the practice of living missionally can be challenging.
We recognise that each person’s journey to live missionally is deeply personal and reflective of where God is leading them. It is shaped by our skills, experiences, and passions. As we explore The River we want to equip and empower you to live a lifestyle reflecting God’s heart for humanity and His creation.
Missions Pathways is designed to help us go beyond just knowing about an issue. It’s designed to equip you to live missionally by connecting your faith with the knowledge to influence systems of injustice and share the gospel. It is a journey that empowers you to make a personal response and teaches you a framework that can be applied across any area of interest.
Throughout the year, we are running a range of encounters that start with 5 selected themes.
- Human Trafficking
- Ministry and Evangelism
- Childhood Development
- Economic Empowerment; and
- Creation Care
