Humility, Integrity and Trust

1. Humility
Expand
Humility says:
 I don’t KNOW it all
 I don’t SEE it all
 I don’t HAVE it all
 I don’t WANT it all
 I don’t need it all
 Compared to God I know I’m very small
 I don’t want to fall,
 Or Hit a brick wall,
 Look like an oddball or
 End up on pub crawl
 And start my downfall
 And make people go LOL
 That’s Humility!
And pride comes before a fall
Humility involves treating others the same way we would treat them if they were someone “important”
Distinguished
Expand
Distinguished: Dictionary: used to describe a respected and admired person, or their work.

To “distinguish yourself” is to do something so well that you are admired and praised for it.
“…Daniel was reliable…” GNB

“…He was totally exemplary and trustworthy. They could find no evidence of negligence or misconduct.” MSG

“…because he was faithful [a man of high moral character and personal integrity]…”
Integrity by Dr Henry Cloud
Expand
Dr Henry Cloud says integrity means to “be whole, integrated, complete.”

He describes it as the ingredient necessary for lasting success.

Dr Cloud says our character, the ability to meet the demands of reality, determines our integrity.

An excellent spirit trusts in God’s ultimate goodness and wisdom and power. And this trust is stronger and deeper than sorrow or confusion.

We can learn from Daniel that trust in God is always deeper, stronger and more powerful than the pain and confusion of our circumstances.

It’s easy to trust and obey God when He does things our way and things are easy and straight forward. But a real excellent spirit understands that true trust in God continues to trust and obey him even when I don’t agree with his methods!

We haven’t truly learned obedience until we do what he says despite our doubts, confusion or concern that his way won’t work out.

A Czech Widow's “Embassy of the Kingdom of Heaven”

Filmed over 4 days, we initially landed in Prague (Eastern Europe) hoping to find a story but blindly praying for God’s leading. We started talking to churches, met a translator, and then asked the translator “who is a Christian we can learn from?” Ludmilla’s name came up pretty quickly. We were only able to spend portions of two days with her, but the impression Ludmilla left on us was incredible. Fun fact: Brent’s wife quit her job because of what she learned and saw of Ludmilla’s life, saying, “I think God wants me to take a step of faith.” So she called her work from The Czech Republic and resigned.”

Prayer Request or Praise Report
Expand
If you have a prayer request or want to tell us about answered prayer, please do so here.

We Value the Power of Prayer

“Supernaturally Transforming Lives and Circumstances”

“Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.” – Philippians 4:6 NIV
As a church we have numerous stories of people who have had prayer answered and seen incredible miracles take place. We have stories of; miraculous healings, miraculous protection from danger and harm, children being born when it seemed impossible, hospitals and orphan’s villages being built in Haiti and many, many more examples that God still answers prayer today and miracles do happen.

Join a Team
Expand
“Our Church is not built on the talents and gifts of a few but on the sacrifice of many.” –Brian Houston

The Vine church is as effective as our people. The greatness of our church relies on the heart of our people and their willingness to serve others. Our church functions because ordinary people give their time, talents and energy willingly and cheerfully to serve others.

Joining a team is an excellent way to get connected into the life of our church, make friends and help the church to grow. In fact the growth in health and size of our church depends on every member serving and “doing their own special work”:

“…as each part does its own special work, it helps the other parts grow, so that the whole body is growing and full of love.”
Eph.4:16 NLT

Roger and Shireen West

Sunday 31st March 11am - 12:30pm

We are so privileged and delighted to welcome Roger and Shireen West to the Vine Church.
The Evangelistic Ministry of Roger and Shireen West

Roger and Shireen West are a husband and wife team, who live in Nanyuki, Kenya, and, from there, take the Gospel to the Nations of Africa. The ministry began in a simple way by conducting ‘Catch The Fire Conferences’ throughout the country. These conferences later developed into Gospel Crusades, as Roger and Shireen travelled with a small team and a 3,000-seater tent throughout the length and breadth of Kenya.
It was not long before the tent proved to be too small for the crowds of Gospel-hungry souls, and so the team resorted to open-air evangelism. With experience and encouragement, the Gospel Crusades pushed northwards from Kenya into the 10/40 window of Gospel barrenness.

It is the desire of Roger & Shireen to see Central and North Africa saved .

Compassion Sunday With Matt Hooper

Compassion Sunday With Matt Hooper
We are so thrilled to announce Matt Hooper will be with us on our Compassion Sunday and our very own Adrian Turk will bring an inspiring message. Here’s a little about Matt:

“Music is in my blood. Growing up to Cash, Dylan, Seeger, Springsteen, Paul Simon & The Beatles I guess my musical DNA was set from an early age.
I wanted to write the soundtrack to something great.
I learnt from the protest singers of the 60’s that if you write the words you can start a revolution.
And if you write melodies you could help people have a good time too.
So I decided to write songs.
