Palo Alto Vineyard Church

Worship With US

We are a Vineyard Church in Palo Alto, California. 

Our mission is to empower people from all backgrounds to have intimacy with God and influence for His Kingdom.
Come as you are, you are welcome here.

EXPERIENCING GOD THROUGH THE HOLY SPIRIT

We believe that we are able to meet and experience God through the presence of the Holy Spirit. In our corporate gatherings, we desire worship, teaching and prayer ministry that is Holy Spirit led. We expect the Holy Spirit to speak to us, to heal us holistically (body, mind and spirit), and to bring constant transformation in our lives.

CONNECTING BRAVELY

We honor, learn from, and celebrate the diversity within our church as we build intentional, deep, thriving relationships with one another. We have found that being vulnerable and honest is the best way to forge the intimate relationships that God has for us in Christian community. We take risks to connect with people who are very different from us. We offer practical service to one another and reconcile conflicts in order to prioritize true, connected relationships.

LOVING OUR NEIGHBORS

We aim to love our "local" neighbors - where we live, work and play - as well as those Jesus calls us to "be a neighbor to" in the Bay Area and the world. We believe that the call to love is not just words or a concept but must be lived out in practical ways in our lives.

GROWING IN OUR RELATIONSHIP WITH JESUS

We believe that faith is primary - not conceptual but relational. Jesus is a real person who is present in our lives and speaking to us regularly. Therefore, our relationship with Jesus is not meant to be stagnant, but dynamic, intimate and transformative.

BEING AUTHENTIC

We want to be a community of humble and honest people. As we mature into the reality of the grace of God, we are free to be transparent and vulnerable with God and with one another. Knowing that we all make mistakes and sin, we live in the reality that Christian relationships must be based on the cross of Christ and not mere human affinity.

INTERGENERATIONAL COMMUNITY

We value worshipping God as a whole community, and believe it is God’s desire for faith to be shared across the generations! On the First Sunday of every month, our services are intergenerational, that means, kids and youth participate and help lead parts of the service. When we serve our neighbors, we also do this intergenerationally, everyone gets involved! We do not “look down” on our kids and youth because they are young, but we seek to engage and involve kids and youth in what Jesus is doing!
