We at VBC believe that the sermon experience involves a triangle: the minister, the congregation, and the Living Word of God.

The minister, through his or her love for the people in the congregation, is bringing to them the Word that comes from both the written text and the living Spirit. The members of the congregation are seeking God with an open heart and mind, in partnership with the minister. The Living Word of God is present for all to sense during worship.

The purpose of the sermon is to lead us into a vibrant faith that transforms us, so that we
can become the kind of disciples who, as we say in our covenant, “live under the Lordship
of Christ and continue his ministry to the world.”
