Learning to follow Christ together for the renewal of our community and for the hope of the world.
The following areas support our Mission:
We believe God’s story is about God coming as one of us to make all things new. God gives us the gift of becoming new, ourselves, as well as participating in God’s re-creation of the world. (Romans 12:2; Titus 3:5)
Valley is still fairly new, but not new in its belief and practice. Worship is formative, and our worship is shaped by the wisdom of the church throughout the ages, rooted in scripture and Christ centered. (Psalm 29:2; Psalm 66:1-4; John 4:24)
We are not a church for ourselves to simply enjoy or consume. Serving the community involves not only a redirection of our hearts but also a redirection of our hands and feet. (Romans 12:3-8)
WE LISTEN TO GOD’S WORD
We believe we must always begin and end with God’s Word, not our own. Thus we seek God’s Word to show us his heart and desires for our lives and ministries. God’s written Word points us to the Living Word, Jesus. We also commit ourselves to listening to God’s voice through prayer, knowing true power and guidance comes from God. . (1 Timothy 3:16; Psalm 119:11; Hebrews 4:12; Ezra 8:5,6; James 5:13-16).
WE DIVE IN WITH PEOPLE
We believe our focus in ministry should be the same as Jesus’: people. We will value people over programs; diving into the mess of their lives in order to find the masterpiece that God has designed them to be. (Ephesians 2:10; Luke 19:10)
WE GO BEYOND THE WALLS
We will endeavor to reach the whole world, which compels us to engage both our local community and the far reaches of the world in a spirit of humility and collaboration with the global body of Christ. (Matthew 28:18; Acts 1:8)
WE OPEN OUR HANDS
We recognize all of our time, treasures and talents are gifts from God and we will humbly share these resources—including our successes and failures—with other churches, ministries and people. (2 Corinthians 9:11)
WE FORGE NEW PATHS
We are compelled by the love of Christ. We will, by faith, take risks and push the limits of entrepreneurial creativity to advance the Kingdom of God. We will be curious learners, always looking for new ways to reach people. (Hebrews 11; Romans 15:20; Proverbs 1:5; Matthew 11:29)
WE DEVELOP OTHERS
We believe our greatest success will be reproducing leaders, ministries, initiatives and churches. We will never lead alone, but will continually build into apprentice leaders to help them grow as Christ-followers and extend the reach of our ministries and church. (2 Timothy 2:2; Matthew 16:18)

Valley Presbyterian Church is a member of the Presbyterian Church in America (PCA). The PCA subscribes to the Westminster Confession of Faith, together with the Larger and Shorter Catechisms, and the Book of Church Order, all of which are subordinate to the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments, the inerrant Word of God. We believe that the only infallible rule of faith and practice is Scripture Alone.
