DNA is what makes Verndale Family Life Church distinctive from other churches. It defines WHO we are and WHY we do what we do. We do not believe this is the only way or the right way; it is simply the way God has directed us. Our DNA includes ABC's:
CONNECT to a Sunday Service
We want you to be inspired in your worship by attending Sunday services and a few key events that match your life stage. These moments are specially designed for you to experience Jesus’ presence and to be a welcoming place to bring unchurched friends.
GROW in a Smaller Group
We want you to grow in a smaller community of believers. We are wired for relationship – with God and with other Christ-followers – and it is through meaningful relationships that we grow. We want everyone in the church to be connected to others and grow in their relationship with Jesus by being involved in a Lifegroup.
SERVE in Your Giftings
We want you TO SERVE Jesus Christ through your God given gifts and abilities. Being devoted to Jesus is a life-long journey and we are committed to helping you along the way. As we each use our talents for His glory, the entire church is strengthened and has a greater inpact in reaching for people for Christ. Functioning in your gift for others also helps each of us find our greater calling in life.
WORSHIP In Daily Spiritual Practices
We want you to WORSHIP WITH YOUR LIFE. In everything we do, we should invest into our spiritual growth through what we listen to, what we watch, what we say, how we spend our resources and so much more. We challenge every follower of Christ to live their live in such a way that the Holy Spirit evidence is all over them and influences others around to desire more of Jesus because of your life. Devotion to Jesus comes through devotion to the Bible, which is His Word written to you personally.
GO Share the Good News
We want you to GO BE A WORLD CHANGER. You can change your world by serving, which may sound strange, but when you put yourself in a position to serve another person, you change their world and in turn, your world changes. You can be a world changer by serving at your campus, in your community on a Local Service Project Team and around the world through Global Project.
