What kind of church is this?
The Branch is a place where everyone is welcome regardless of where they are in life. We acknowledge that we are all on a life journey, and sometimes struggle in that journey to seek and to know God. We believe passionately that success along this journey is greater when we come together to support and love one another and our community. We are thrilled to invite you to join us on Sunday mornings beginning at 10:00 am.
Our Vision as a Church
We desire to be an outreach, service-oriented church in the East Vancouver/Camas area that is known for its love for God, one another and the community and as a place where one can grow in knowing and following Jesus.
Our Key Values
Love… God and every person
Grow… in knowing Jesus and following Jesus
Serve… Jesus and the Community
Our name comes from the Bible where Jesus tells us “I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit…” – John 15:5
The Branch is a non-denominational Christian church lead by Dave and Lori Vigna. This church plant is sponsored by the Christian Evangelistic Association which supports church planting efforts throughout the Northwest.
We believe... The Bible
…that Jesus Christ is the one and only Son of God, who died for our sins and rose from the dead.
(1 Corinthians 15: 1-8 & John 3:16)
…that the Bible itself is the inspired word of God – a lamp unto our feet and a light unto our path.
(2 Timothy 3:16 & Psalm 119:105)
…that every person has worth as a creation of God, but that all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.
…that forgiveness of sins and the promise of eternal life are available to those who trust Christ as Savior and Lord
While the Bible itself is our formal document of faith, the following statements should help you understand those biblical ideas that most fundamentally define what we believe.
— We believe in one God who is Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
— We believe God is the Creator of all things.
— We believe in Jesus Christ, God’s only Son and Savior of the world.
— We believe in the Holy Spirit, who encourages, guides, comforts, and transforms us in the way of Christ.
— We believe the Bible is the inspired, written Word of God and the authoritative rule for all matters of faith and practice.
— We believe that man, created by God, willfully sinned, and as a result, is lost and without hope apart from Jesus Christ, whose death, burial, and resurrection opened the way for salvation.
— We believe that salvation (the forgiveness of sins) comes by grace through the blood of Jesus Christ. It is offered to all persons of all races, all of whom were created in the image of God.
— We believe the Bible clearly outlines the pattern to follow to receive Christ as Lord: To believe in Christ as God’s Son and Savior of the world, to repent of personal sin, to confess Christ publicly, and to be immersed in baptism.
— We believe that the church is the body and bride of Christ and was founded on the day of Pentecost. It consists of all Christians everywhere.
— We believe that death seals the eternal destiny of each person. When Christ returns, He will pronounce the eternal fate of each individual, both living and dead. The saved will be given eternal life; the unsaved will suffer eternal separation from God.
