Valley Vibe: Discover the VFC Culture

The Valley Vibe is our culture.

Culture is often defined as the understood personality, language, values, behaviors and beliefs of a particular group of people. The Valley Vibe is a combination of all of these things and is a blending of our Mission, Vision, Core Values, Priorities and Motto. You could say the Valley Vibe is the DNA of our church and it permeates our kids, student and adult ministries and outreach. Take a look...

Our Mission

We exist to empower you to live a great life with God!

John 10:10


Our Vision

We see a large family church with a global impact where people are empowered by our great God to experience these five greats: great love, great joy, great faith, the great commandment and the great commission. 

1 John 4:4, Mark 12:30-33, John 15:11, Luke 7:9, Matthew 28:18-20


Our Core Values

 

We Love The Church Jesus Loves: Because we love Jesus -- we love what He loves. He loves the Church and gave His life for it; so we  love His Church -- locally and globally, too.  Ephesians 1:22-23

We Are Loved To Love Others: Because we are loved by God, through Jesus and we have received His forgiveness, acceptance and approval -- we can freely share this same forgiveness, acceptance and approval with others. 1 John 4:10-11

We’re Becoming More Like Christ: Because we love the Lord -- we have a desire to please Him, worship Him and become more like Christ. Colossians 3:23

We All Scream Green: Because we believe that God blesses a church in unity -- we set aside our personal preferences and gladly wear the VFC "green jersey" to fulfill the vision God has given to our founders and lead Pastors. Psalm 133

We Have The Advantage: Because we know our success is not by our own might, but by the Spirit's power -- we lean on the Holy Spirit and the advantage He gives us as we follow His guidance. John 16:7

We  Live So That Generosity Defines Us: Because God so generously loved the world and gave us His Son -- we live generously by giving our time, talents and treasures to further His cause and to help others. Isaiah 32:8

We Know Life Is Short, So Church Should Be Fun: Because life on earth is short compared to eternity -- we believe church should be a place where fun, laughter, refreshing and joy abound. 2 Corinthians 4:18

We Let The Queen of Sheba Inspire Us: Because the Queen of Sheba was so inspired by excellence, innovation, creativity and happiness when she visited Solomon’s kingdom -- we want our church to be an inspiring place for those who visit. 1 Kings 10

We Love the Basics: Because we believe spiritual maturity comes from being established in the basics of God's Word -- we stay rooted in the Bible and are unapologetic in stirring people up in the foundational truths. Colossians 1:28-29

We Live By Faith: Because faith pleases God -- we believe God's Word and intentionally live out the faith adventure of trusting Him for big things. Galatians 2:20

We Influence Our Sphere: Because eternity is a long time -- we  believe God has placed us in our sphere of influence (the marketplace, government, education, family, media, the arts and entertainment or ministry) influence others for Christ. Romans 10:13-15

We Are Building a Movement Not a Monument: Because God sees things through the lens of legacy and generations -- we keep an eternal perspective as we multiply, grow and expand locally and globally. 2 Timothy 2:2


Our Priorities

 

Great Worship Services

We believe we should give our very best to God and those who attend each weekend, so we focus on making our worship services top notch - full of great worship, great joy and a great message from God's Word.

Great Outreach Ministries

We are passionate about taking the gospel beyond the four walls of the church. We know we can't do every outreach idea that comes to mind, but we can make sure the ones we do are done with excellence to have the greatest impact.

Great Kids Program

We are committed to helping every boy and girl hear about Jesus and His love for them; as well as helping them to grow in their childlike faith. When kids connect with a great children's ministry, they often are the catalyst for their parents and whole family to begin attending church.

Great Student Ministry

We believe in the young people at VFC and we love to see them flourish in their relationship with the Lord and in their zeal and passion for reaching others. Focusing on great student ministry for Middle School, High School and College students is critical for growing a lasting, vibrant church. 

Great Training Opportunities

We love to see people growing in their own walk with the Lord and then sharing what they learn with others in their sphere of influence. We are focused on offering great live and on-demand classes, programs and events to train and mentor believers to be fully devoted and reproductive followers of Christ.


Our Motto

We believe Jesus is building His Church and increasing His family every day!  We want you be a part of of the great things He's doing in the growing family at Valley Family Church!  In other words...

"There's no place like home. There's nothing like family. You belong here."

Ephesians 3:14-20
