Become A Partner
Has God called you to partner with Vintage Church?
Vintage Church’s desire is to develop a covenantal relationship between the Vintage family and the Vintage leadership under the authority of Christ. In the Bible, this is considered church membership. While membership in the Bible never referred to privilege and rights, our culture has turned membership into something that is self-centered. Because of this, Vintage Church believes in “partnership.”
To be a member at Vintage Church is to be a Vintage Partner. To be a Vintage Partner means that we are not about privilege but about partnership. Being a Vintage Partner means we are connected and committed to the local church and its leadership. When the Vintage family covenants with the Vintage leadership we keep our focus upon Christ and his mission through Vintage Church.
The first step in becoming a Vintage partner is to attend "Step 4: Partner" of the Vintage Connect Track. During this step, you will learn about the Vintage Church story, Vintage Church Beliefs, the church, who Vintage Church is, and how to become a Vintage Partner. After Step 4, you will then have an opportunity to become a Partner with Vintage Church. Part of this commitment is joining a vGroup.
