WHO WE ARE

Vinings Lake is a progressive, fully-inclusive, diverse, and non-denominational spiritual community joining God in the restoration and renewal of all things.

OUR VALUES

  • At Vinings Lake everyone has a seat at the table. Every person is encouraged and empowered to serve at any capacity in all leadership roles regardless of gender, race, ethnicity, age, education, sexual orientation, socioeconomic, or marital status.
  • We are not centered around a particular set of beliefs. We seek to grow in our love for God, neighbor, self, earth, and our enemies, and to follow in the way of Jesus and his teachings. His way is that of full inclusion, sacrificial love, non-violent peacemaking, non-anxious presence, non-judgmental disposition, radical generosity, limitless forgiveness, and inexhaustible grace.
  • We view the Bible to be a library of ancient books written by real people living in real places at real times with real agendas. This collection of inspired poems, letters, and stories speaks to their encounters with God, which leads to our own experiences with God. We seek to honor, interpret, explore, question, wrestle, and apply the Bible in fresh, creative, and healing ways.
  • We will join the God of the oppressed by fighting injustice and advocating for the marginalized, outcast, and alone.
  • We will channel our resources (time, energy, money) for the greater good of our community and world.

 * Vinings Lake is unequivocally LGBTQ affirming, committed to the empowerment of women, and welcoming of immigrants and refugees.
