He who abides in Me, and I in him, the same brings forth much fruit;
for without Me you can do nothing.” John 15:5
As a called out, Christ-centered, apostolic, prophetic body of believers our desire in True Vine is to be equipped and used by God to reach out with the Gospel, help in equipping other saints in the Body of Christ for works of ministry and the building up of the body in unity as we join in the extension of God’s Kingdom rule in the earth.
In accordance with Ephesians 4: 11 – 12, we believe that God has placed within the body ministry gifts that need to be identified, developed and released to help build the local and wider body as we collectively seek to fulfil the Great Commission entrusted to us all by the Lord Jesus Christ.
The leadership of the local church has therefore on a number of occasions prayerfully responded to requests from other local assemblies to send True Vine members with certain spiritual gifts and abilities to help them. This has provided a tremendous avenue of growth for the members who are sent out because they are not confined to the the local fellowship of True Vine but are able to reach out and use their gifts and callings to help others in the body of Christ.
