We believe Vann Avenue Baptist Church exists to impact our community with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. We communicate this at Vann Avenue by reminding ourselves, as followers of Jesus Christ, that we exist to engage our community in both word and deed. It is our prayer that if someone were to ask, "Would your community know if you were not there?" that the answer would be yes. We hope this would be because we loved others the way Jesus loved us, and others would come to know His love as well through us.
