About us

Vertical Encounter Church is a body of believers committed to aggressively pursuing a relationship with God through personal time, our physical presence in weekly services to receive the word of God, and the continual application in our lives of all the teaching instruction and counsel that is received under the leadership of Vertical Encounter Church. We value the idea that all members of the Kingdom of God carry necessary components to build our body, our gifts, talents, and service will be needed in at least one department of Vertical Encounter Church for the purpose of supporting the vision.

We are dedicated to following the lead of the Holy Spirit. From our hearts to yours, we want to welcome you to the journey of fulfilling the Father’s dream. Stay strong in the Lord, and always remember, Galatians 4:19 which says: “My children, with whom I am again labor until CHRIST IS FORMED IN YOU.”

What we believe

Faith shall be according to the doctrine of Christ found in 2 John 9-10:  "Anyone who goes too far and does not abide in the teaching of Christ, does not have God; the one who abides in the teaching, he has both the Father and the Son".

The biblically inspired doctrinal basis of faith which lists the seven principles of the doctrine of Christ found in Hebrews 6:1-2: “Therefore leaving the principles of the doctrine of Christ, let us go on unto perfection; not laying again the foundation of repentance from dead works, and of faith toward God, Of the doctrine of baptisms, and of laying on of hands, and of  resurrection of the dead, and of eternal judgment.”

Thus we see that the seven principles include the following:

  • ​Repentance from dead works.

  • Faith toward God.

  • Doctrine of baptisms.

  • Laying on of hands.

  • Resurrection of the dead.

  • Eternal judgment.

  • Going on to perfection.
