Definition of Vanguard

Avant garde, forerunner, a group of people leading the way in new developments or ideas, the foremost part of an advancing army.


Vanguard Church was birthed over 30 years ago in 1981 as a result of a move of the Holy Spirit in North Tonawanda. New believers and Spirit-filled Lutherans hungry for a place to allow God to freely move in their meetings joined together to form Community Christian Church. Families have formed the core of our gathering and now those who originally founded the church have kids, grandkids, and even great grandchildren building God’s kingdom through Vanguard Church today.


Vanguard continues to be a place for families to grow and thrive in freedom with the Spirit of God. We are a prophetic house of forerunners, centered on our heavenly Father’s plan of revival for every individual, home, and community. Jesus came to restore us to the Father’s love, and to healthy relationships with the world around us. “So now I am giving you a new commandment:Love each other. Just as I have loved you, you should love each other. Your love for one another will prove to the world that you are my disciples. John 13:34-35

 It is our desire to see God moving powerfully in every avenue of life, not just inside the church walls. We recognize and empower His calling for people in business, in education, in the arts, in government, in sports and entertainment, and every place where we as believers live.
