Becoming the Kind of Worshipers the Father Seeks

What We Do

The distinguishing mark of God’s people is that they would gather regularly to worship Him; to create space that puts God first. We desire to embrace the scriptures as a rule of life and guide for this world. We exist to lead others in all-out, uncompromised worship of God.

Valley Christian aims to impact the world for Christ through Christian education, viewing it as a means to love, equip, and send young people into the world with faith, wisdom and a heart for service.

We believe serving is a key ingredient in living a daily life of worship toward God. Serving is about relationship - it connects us to others by providing care, encouragement and hope. We have a God-provided conduit to hundreds of ways to serve those in our local cities and neighborhoods.

Church does not end with the Sunday service but continues in the regular fellowship of our people. Authentic biblical community involves the study of God's word, engaging in worship and prayer, and providing support for one another. Through our groups, we aspire to capture these same sentiments so that our stories become even more intertwined with His story.


Our Values

Our worship will not be perfect; it will not always be pretty, but it will be real. We choose to lean into our faith, choosing to be honest with God and with others. With all its imperfections and irregularities, we choose to make our current situation a place of worship.

We chase after God and occasionally He slows down enough for us to catch up to Him. God's invasion of this world is not something we watch happen, but something we join with God in making happen. The invitation to draw near to God and be part of Heaven's building on Earth is real and fulfilling.

Worship is both talking to God and listening to Him. We believe what God says to us is so much more critical than what we can ever say to him. We purposely and intentionally take time to hear His whispers, to be still in His presence and to push out the noise and distractions of the world.

At Valley Christian, we view ourselves as collaborators, not competitors. We are merely one player on the team God has assembled. We see the bigger picture of what God wants to do in our Valley and we make decisions of what is best for the kingdom.
