Here at The Vine Birmingham, our mission, Touching People, Changing the World, is accomplished by empowering people, inspiring community action, and helping transform your life through the love of Jesus Christ. Every week we get to enjoy one another and do life together. Together, we see our church as a place where barriers are broken through the love of Jesus. We see our church as a place where the spiritually hungry, thirsty, broken, bound, and overlooked find solace each week. We see a place where social and cultural barriers are broken through worship and all people are doing life together through the love of Jesus. Can you see it? Consider joining us this weekend. There is a place here for you!
