We Are Better Together
At Miami Vineyard, we believe that God loves and values all people. We need each other to become everything that God created us to be. So we celebrate and embrace our diversity, believing that when we begin to see those with differing backgrounds as “us” and not “them,” we will be able to extend compassion and mercy in the way that Jesus modeled for us. As a church, we’re committed to growing together in diversity and inclusion. Would you join us on our journey?
