Church Description

It’s hard to describe Miami Vineyard Community Church. You really need to experience it to believe it! This South Florida congregation has been serving its community in the way of Christ for over 30 years. What was once a primarily mono-ethnic church has blossomed into a truly multi-cultural faith community. Since 1993, Miami Vineyard Community Church has grown from 200 “faithful founders” to a uniquely diverse congregation of over 2,000 that genuinely reflects its greater community (65% Latino, 16% Black/islander/Haitian, 14% White/Caucasian, 3% Indian or Asian, 2% Other). Today, it’s a well respected church in the region for its gritty, God-honoring commitment to sacrificial outreach and weekly services/ministries where anyone and everyone is welcome.

The heart of this highly relational, high context body of believers aches for the unchurched and beats fast in ministry step with God’s Spirit. Each of Miami Vineyard Community Church’s weekend services (Sat. 6:15pm; Sun. 10am, 11:30am, 1pm) combines passionate worship and practical teaching so people can encounter biblical truth in Jesus-centered community. It’s truly a picture of heaven on earth as people from every tongue and tribe, young and old, rich and poor come together as one congregation united in Spirit and truth.
