Vintage Church is for you.

If you’ve been burned by the church, don’t trust it, don’t like it, or just plain don’t believe the claims Jesus makes, this church is for you. If you are curious, just investigating, or wondering whether Jesus is who he says he is in the Bible, this church is for you. If you’re a follower of his and want to share his love with this city and beyond, this church is for you. 

We recognize that belief is hard and that it is worth acknowledging and wrestling with the questions, doubts, objections and skepticism around the Christian faith. At Vintage, we welcome doubters and skeptics to process their doubts and beliefs with the recognition that it is not sufficient to hold doubts or beliefs just because we inherited them. If you are interested in processing your doubts and beliefs, or exploring Christianity, I would love for you to email me at jordan.penley@vintagenc.com so we can walk alongside as you investigate the claims of Jesus.” – Jordan Penley
