Our Mission Statement

Love God, Love People, Live It Out

We believe at Yakima Vineyard that the Holy Spirit has empowered us to bring the good news of Jesus Christ to our local communities, to raise-up committed followers, and to join with God in the redemption of all creation. 


A more expanded version of our misson

  • We believe at Yakima Vineyard that the Holy Spirit has empowered us 


Acts 1:8
But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.”


Romans 8:6-11 

The mind governed by the flesh is death, but the mind governed by the Spirit is life and peace. The mind governed by the flesh is hostile to God; it does not submit to God’s law, nor can it do so. Those who are in the realm of the flesh cannot please God. You, however, are not in the realm of the flesh but are in the realm of the Spirit, if indeed the Spirit of God lives in you. And if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, they do not belong to Christ.  But if Christ is in you, then even though your body is subject to death because of sin, the Spirit gives life because of righteousness. And if the Spirit of him who raised Jesus from the dead is living in you, he who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies because of his Spirit who lives in you.


John 14:12

Very truly I tell you, whoever believes in me will do the works I have been doing, and they will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father.

  • to bring the good news of Jesus Christ to our local communities. 


God has called us to share the good news of Jesus and His redemptive power, His power over sin and death. He has urged us to BE the good news through both word and deed. Let’s speak life into Yakima, let’s bring God’s kingdom to bear on  every dark corner of our valley. May we bring love, healing, wholeness, food, clothes, prayer, worship, encouragement, hope, and peace to our community. We should be a prophetic voice speaking healing over the body, mind, and  spirit of every soul that calls Yakima home.

John 20:21
Jesus said to them again, “Peace be with you. As the Father has sent me, even so I am sending you.”


Romans 10:14–17

How then will they call on him in whom they have not believed? And how are they to believe in him of whom they have never heard? And how are they to hear without someone preaching?  And how are they to preach unless they are sent? As it is written, “How beautiful are the feet of those who preach the good news!”  But they have not all obeyed the gospel. For Isaiah says, “Lord, who has believed what he has heard from us?”  So faith comes from hearing, and hearing through the word of Christ.



  • to raise-up committed followers


The standard definition of  a disciple (noun) is someone who adheres to the ways of another. It is a follower or a learner. It refers to someone who takes up the ways of someone else. Applied to Jesus, a disciple is someone who learns from him to live like him. All of us who are called Christians should be little Jesus’s running around bringing the kingdom of God to bear on the earth just as he did!


John 13:14–15
If I then, your Lord and Teacher, have washed your feet, you also ought to wash one another’s feet. For I have given you an example, that you also should do just as I have done to you.

John 13:34
A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another: just as I have loved you, you also are to love one another.
And this is his commandment, that we believe in the name of his Son Jesus Christ and love one another, just as he has commanded us.


To be a disciple of Jesus means to serve like him. It means to serve, primarily, by looking at your brothers and sisters and going low in acts of love, even when it’s an inconvenience to yourself, even when it flip-flops the world’s status/order and expectations. Making disciples of Jesus means making servants who love one another and the world around them without reservation a “reckless love”!

Disciples are in the game. Disciples live it.


  • and to join with God in the redemption of all creation. 


Colossians 1:15-20

The Son is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. For in him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things have been created through him and for him. He is before all things, and in him all things hold together. And he is the head of the body, the church; he is the beginning and the firstborn from among the dead, so that in everything he might have supremacy.  For God was pleased to have all his fullness dwell in him, and through him to reconcile to himself all things, whether things on earth or things in heaven, by making peace through his blood, shed on the cross.

In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth,” the Bible begins. The scope of Creation was “all things;” the scope of the Fall was “all things,” and the scope of redemption, therefore, is “all things.” God’s mission, then, is the redemption of His entire creation.

God wants to redeem Men.
God wants to redeem Women.
God wants to redeem Families.
God wants to redeem Sex.
God wants to redeem the Church.
God wants to redeem Work.
God wants to redeem Fun.
God wants to redeem ALL THE THINGS!!

Think of a thing, & guess what? we believe God wants to redeem it!
