At the beginning of His ministry, Jesus read and declared that His mission was the fulfillment of the words of the prophet Isaiah,“The Spirit of the Lord is upon me,
because he has anointed me
to proclaim good news to the poor.
He has sent me to proclaim liberty to the captives
and recovering of sight to the blind,
to set at liberty those who are oppressed,
to proclaim the year of the Lord's favor.”
As we follow Jesus and surrender to His lordship in our lives, we also want to partner with Him in proclaiming and bringing the Kingdom of Heaven. The I-61 Community has been created as a natural next step as Vineyard Gilbert has been expanding and growing our Loving Native America
community, as well as other ways that the Vineyard has been intentional in pursuing bringing reconciliation, care, healing, and restoration (in the way of Jesus) in practical ways.
