We are a Christian church serving the city of Milwaukee since 1998. Called by God as a church for the city, our members represent the multi-cultural and multi-ethnic nature of the urban context. While our services are in English, our life together is often spiced with words, foods, and customs that represent the diversity of people that God has drawn to our church.
At Straightway Vineyard we seek to live life in “reality mode”. That means we shy away from purely religious forms and try to apply our faith in practical ways in daily life. This approach is reflected in everything we do, from the way we talk about God and teach the Bible, to our casual dress at worship services, and the simplicity of our meeting facilities. We also believe that God has called us to be a people with a mission, so that every member is encouraged to be involved in ministry. We’re guided in this by a strong commitment to the teachings of the Bible, and an expectant openness to the leading of God’s Holy Spirit. We are a people of “the Word and the Spirit”, and “everyone gets to play”. In addition, God has also given us a heart to minister to children as the next generation of Godly leaders for His church. This love for children and our passion for mission are reflected in our efforts locally and internationally through our ministries in Senegal, Africa and Andra Pradesh, India.
