|The basis of The Jesus Vineyard is relationships. The history of God's relationships with man as well as man's relationships with others goes back to the Garden of Eden. |
The more recent history of The Jesus Vineyard goes back several years. As a young christian, I would attend fellowships and churches that would spend time in open worship and testimony in what God was doing in our daily lives along with confession and repentance in what we were doing in our own lives. This witnessing of people testifying of God's mercy, forgiveness and revelation encouraged others to realize and remember, that similarly, He cares for all our concerns, both small and large. These are things that we might not know unless someone tells us what God has done for them.
I have seen that this genuine openess to God and others allowed closer relationships to form. These are real relationships born of real compassion, real concern and real love.
"The Jesus Vineyard is all about relationships!"
