"Our mission is to love people

into a growing relationship

with Jesus. Period."

-Jim Bricker, Senior Pastor

Our History

Jim and Kristy Bricker started Vineyard Community Church with a small group of friends in 1993. The Holy Spirit instilled on Jim's heart the vision of a contemporary church on the southside of Indianapolis that worshiped with upbeat music, taught the Bible in practical ways and had a casual setting where all would feel welcome.

On Mother's Day of 1993, Vineyard Community Church met for the first time in a meeting room at the Saint Andrews Apartments in Greenwood. That first celebration included 35 people. Over the years the church has met in several locations including a day care center, a former skating rink and a former ladies workout center. In 2006, the church moved to our current location, 512 S. Madison Avenue.

Our church family has grown from 35 people to more than 2,500.

Our Values

VCC wants to make an impact in your life, in our community, and

in the world.

Our mission is to love people into a growing relationship with Jesus. That's how we're able to make an impact, and it's the reason why we do what we do.

Our Values: People

At VCC we have a genuine heart for people. We know that everyone is significant and has a purpose. And we know that Jesus is the only one who can give us the meaning and direction our life needs to make an impact. So we value:

Seeing people who are far from Jesus come close

to Him.

Our Values: Presence

In our lives, we've learned that being present can help in all sorts of situations. At VCC, we know and realize that God is always active and moving. He always is speaking to us and through us in order to bring people to Himself. We long to see God move and break through and bring us new life. So we value:

Depending on and experiencing the work of the

Holy Spirit. 

Our Values: Practicality

Most of us understand that life can be messy. And most of us aren't MacGyver and we've given up hope of fixing anything. At VCC, we think that the best ways and methods we can use to handle what life throws at us can be found in scripture. So we value: 

Teaching the Bible in practical ways that lead to kingdom-living.

Our Values: Personal Relationships

Here at VCC, we know that small groups, what we call LifeGroups, are the currency of the church. Without that genuine touch of personal people, the church can become stale and people can become isolated. We don't want that for anyone. At VCC, we want you to know you belong and because we value people, we also value:

Cultivating growing relationships.
