Our Vision Statement
To be a life-giving church of devoted Christ followers forever growing and maturing in Christ together through compelling worship, authentic fellowship, vibrant discipleship, and passionate ministry.
Our Core Values
Grace and Acceptance. Accept one another, then, just as Christ accepted you, in order to bring praise to God (Romans 15:7). For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, and are justified freely by his grace through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus (Romans 3:23-24). None of us are more special than anyone else: we are all special in God’s eyes, and we’re all on a journey towards Christ. Jesus accepts us wherever we are, and encourages us to come closer and closer to Him. He’s not concerned about our backgrounds, our history, or our past. He’s concerned about our future. Each of our journeys are uniquely our own. But because we’re headed in the same direction, we welcome each other on the same path wherever we are individually, and encourage each other along the way towards Christ. We walk in God’s grace.
Fellowship. They spent their time in learning from the apostles, taking part in the fellowship, and sharing in the fellowship meals and the prayers. (Acts 2:42). Fellowship is pleasing in God’s sight. It allows us to interact with others who share our common beliefs in Christ and to promote unity. With fellowship, we are able to build authentic relationships and share in the spiritual growth of fellow believers.
Holiness. Be holy, because I am holy. (1 Peter 1:16, Lev 11:44) Holiness is not the label of a church, a style of dress, or a culture. Holiness is not simply living up to some superficial human standard of perfection. Holiness is an attitude of the heart that expresses itself in godly living. Holiness is being set fully aside by God for His purpose. It comes as a result of our deepening relationship with Him. Our relationship with God deepens through our worship experience with Him, our relationship with Him and with other believers, and our study and application of His word in our lives. Holiness is not an option for the growing and maturing believer. It is necessary for service in Christian ministry. God seeks pureness of heart from all His servants.
Generosity. For your heart will always be where your riches are (Luke 12:34). Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap (Luke 6:38). At Valley Fellowship Church, our heart is in ministry. We believe in being generous when it comes to Christ. We put our money into ministry, always finding creative ways to be a giving church. We practice this as a ministry habit, and encourage our members to do the same.
Stewardship. Moreover, it is required of stewards that they be found trustworthy (1 Corinthians 4:2). While we appreciate and practice generosity, we also value stewardship, managing our resources well. We take seriously what God has entrusted us. We use our financial resources, talents, and gifts efficiently to benefit Christ and our community through ministry.
Excellence. Whatever your hand finds to do, do it with all your power and might (Ecclesiastes 9:10a). We put our all in everything we do. Excellence is in our DNA. It means we perform every activity, function, event, and ministry opportunity with our very best effort. We endeavor to please God with the highest quality of ministry. We strive for excellence in everything.
