Core values are the essentials of effective ministry at Valley Christian Center. These are beliefs about who we are that cannot be compromised. They are the assumptions upon which our ministry is built. All of our core values apply to our ministry with children and youth as well as to our ministry with adults.
The Bible is our guide for life.
Because the Bible is God’s inerrant Word, providing instruction for how to relate to God, self and others, it is our absolute standard for faith and practice in all we do. Therefore, we are committed to helping Christians grow in their knowledge of, devotion to, and application of the Scriptures.
Prayer is essential.
Prayer, both private and corporate, is imperative to the growth and development of individual Christians and the Church, and for effective outreach into the world.
Leading People to Jesus is our goal.
Leading people into a growing, dynamic relationship with Jesus, so He becomes the Lord of their lives, is our primary assignment in the world. This outreach begins with people we know and extends around the world in partnership with Foursquare Missions and others.
Every Christian has a ministry.
Every Christian is called into gifted, effective, fruitful service in their home, the church, and the world as they are empowered by the Holy Spirit. Therefore, we are committed to equip and release people into ministry.
Small group interaction is necessary for our growth.
Personal involvement in a small group setting that provides support, opportunities for growth, and a ministry outlet is essential for every believer. We need each other in order to become all God intended us to become and to do all He plans for us to do.
Worshiping Jesus Christ is central in all we do.
We believe worship is to be Jesus-centered, contemporary, understandable, and yielded to the Holy Spirit. Loving the Lord our God with all our heart, soul, mind and strength is why we exist.
