Welcome to Blue Ridge Vineyard, Love In Action
Love will be our source, our motivation, and our bottom line. We want to make AGAPE visible and practical in all we do. We want to see each person experience personally and deeply the Love that God has for them. He loves us first, and when we are filled with His love, we have something to give away. Love for God is first, followed by our love for one another in the church. Then our love must find expression to the lost, hurting, broken and bound.
Mission—We will be a “go and do” church vs. a “come and see” church. Our method will be incarnational— physically going into our world with the light of Jesus, just as He did when He came to earth. We desire to see Asheville transformed by the love of God. We will watch where God is moving and move where He leads us. One area we feel led to impact is the Eastern Band of the Cherokee Indians.
Relationships—Love is lived out in relationship. This is a primary value of the Vineyard movement. Everything flows from relationships. Our love is tested in relationships. We grow in love through relationships. Ministry flows out of relationships. We will be warm and safe relationally. We will be structured yet flexible. We will value both relationships and results.
Creativity—We will value creativity in all that we do. will reinvent ourselves continuously, responding to God’s ever growing purposes for our church. We will maintain a learning culture. We value artistic expression in music, dance, drama and visual art.
When we decided to plant this church, we felt strongly to come back to the place of Beth’s family roots—North Asheville. Beth’s family settled the Reems Creek Valley and the town of Beech (near Weaverville) in the late 1700’s. Her ancestors were governors, military leaders, pastors, and educators in the North Asheville area. We believe we are here to continue building on the foundation these ancestors laid years ago.
