The Raytown Vineyard Church is part of a growing association of over 750 churches in forty-seven countries worldwide, including over 500 churches in the U.S.
Although individual Vineyard churches may look and feel similar or very different, we all share 5 core values:
- Seeking to understand and live in God’s purpose and plan.
- Knowing God’s intimate and personal presence.
- Pursuing open and authentic relationships.
- Compassionate Ministry – caring for the under served.
- Engaging our world with Jesus in culturally relevant ways.
There are 3 other Vineyard Churches in the greater Kansas City area:

Ever heard of Bear Grylls? He is the host–and subject–of the Discovery Channel’s wildly popular show called Man vs. Wild.
Why would an apparently self-sufficient man like Bear Grylls do Alpha? (To see a short clip, click here.)
Isn’t Christianity a crutch for the weak?
Does the Christian faith have anything at all to say about the complexities of today’s world?
Starting on Thursday, September 10 at 6 PM, we are partnering with other area churches to provide you with the opportunity to catch dinner and a movie with the Alpha Course. You will get to ask any question you have ever wanted to ask in a safe environment.
Bear Grylls did it. Now, you can too. (By the way, fire starting skills are not required to take Alpha.)

After a brief worship service on Sunday, we made the trek down to the beach at Longview Lake and baptized 4 young people.
Through baptism, each of these followers of Jesus has publicly shared their decision to ask Jesus to be their Savior, and to follow him all the days of their life.
At the Raytown Vineyard Church, we believe that God moves in the hearts of our kids, offering the same opportunities to experience relationship with him that he offers to our adults.
It is a gift to share the gift of baptism with our kids, serving as an outward representation of the miracle of spiritual rebirth that each one of us can enjoy!

At the Raytown Vineyard Church, we are all about finding out what God is already doing in our community, and then simply joining in. Although that certainly includes working alongside other churches, it also means we are always on the lookout for partnerships with government agencies, the school district, local media, non-profits, and even with the business community.
A significant part of our task is to be fully aware of both strengths and needs in our community. Membership in the Raytown Area Chamber of Commerce is a critical resource in fulfilling our mission. Our Chamber does an excellent job creating a time and a space for community leaders to celebrate what is going well and to develop strategies that address areas requiring attention. We are very grateful for the opportunities that membership in the Chamber offers us as a church.
