True Vine Baptist Church

Welcome to ‘The 'Vine”

Pastors-MelvinsOn behalf of our Pastors, Dr. Irvin D. and Shearline Melvin and the entire True Vine Baptist Church family, we welcome you!  As you begin your journey at True Vine, we are so excited about what God will do with and through you.  New beginnings are often exciting and intimidating at the same time. The New Member Ministry will help you navigate through your experience with God and the church.  Just like your family, we are committed to walking you through the rough moments, celebrating with you in the joyous moments and standing with you for all the moments in between.

Our Ministries
How do I find out more about the Church’s Ministry programs?
One of the best ways to learn more about the Ministries is by participating in our New Member Classes which are held once a month on the 2nd Saturday at 9:00 a.m.  Please call the church office at (757) 591-0942 to confirm your attendance.  These classes are encouraged for all New Members.  They are designed to help acclimate you to the True Vine Baptist Church- what we believe, when we meet, our ministries and our culture.

Join a Ministry
Are there specific requirements for participating in a Ministry?
No. Our goal is to “get you involved” so our Ministry programs are designed for inclusion, not exclusion.  We should mention that we urge persons to complete their New Member classes as they walk toward participating in a Ministry.

Speak with the Pastors
Whether you joined twenty years ago, or yesterday, you are welcome to reach out to our leaders and should you have a specific need to meet with the Pastor you can contact him or any member of the executive staff, or call the church office at 757-591-0942. This is a great opportunity to emphasize words we shared earlier – “get involved.”

For Our Visitors
We appreciate anyone the Lord sends to our Ministry.  Whether it is in person during one of our services Face Book or our website, your presence is a blessing.  If you’ve shared with us in person, please come again.  If you are visiting our website, we invite you to take a look around, view some of our activities and  come join us at one of our services. 

Most importantly
We are a church that is committed to building and rebuilding lives!  We hope you will join us in fellowship.  We look forward to meeting you!

New member classes are scheduled at the convenience of the new members.
