As a community of disciples seeking to live like Jesus Christ, our “mission” is to love others as Jesus did. We are called, equipped, and sent out in our daily lives to love and care for our neighbors. By loving and serving others, we share Christ’s love and grow as His disciples.
In addition to living our daily lives as “sent” disciples, VPC offers multiple avenues for individuals to serve people locally, nationally, and internationally—working as the hands and feet of Jesus. From children’s missions programs in the metro-DC area to national and international missions projects—VPC invites you to explore the many ways available to serve God and our neighbors.
VPC strives to truly be a “missional” church, where each believer reaches out to the community with a Christian message of hope, love, and faith. Living missionally means acting like disciples who are sent into the world, as he was, to proclaim His redemptive love and His kingdom. In communal support of this missions objective, VPC dedicates 27% of annual giving to put love and faith in action through “missions” work.
We have the power to spread Jesus’ love through action. We encourage you to think about your mission and how you are being called to serve others today.
“Missions is not primarily an activity of the church, but rather an attribute of God. Our mission flows from the very nature of God: as the Father sending His Son; God the Father and Son sending the Spirit; and God the Father, Son and Spirit sending the church into the world.” -- Darrell Guder
