There have been some well publicized excesses arising out of Vineyard
churches in recent years. The best known is the phenomena reported at the
Toronto Airport Vineyard in which some "manifestastions" were reported to
include barking like dogs and roaring like lions among some very strange
gyrations/dancing. I understand that church has had its association with
the Vineyard withdrawn. Bill McCartney, founder of PromiseKeepers attends a
Vineyard church so I think we know they aren't all very good at teaching
theology to their members. On the other hand, Wayne Grudem is a Vineyard
member and he is a widely respected and conservative Evangelical theologian.
In short, like so many other denominations, it seems to be a mixed bag and
much depends on which Vineyard church you choose to attend.
