Faith comes by hearing the Word of God and that is why we preach (Rom 10:17). Growth comes by learning the Word of God and that is why we teach (2 Tim 2:15). Love comes by sharing the Word of God and that is why we reach (John 21:15-17).
The center piece of Valley Life Free Church is the Word of God, that is, the resurrected Jesus who became flesh, lived among us, and died on the cross for our sins.
Since faith comes by hearing God's Word, it is important to assemble together to hear God's Word preached every week. Remember, without faith, it is impossible to please God.
Since we have been set aside by God to bring Him glory through a maturing faith, it is important to diligently learn and understand God's Word through consistent and productive study habits.
Since faith without works is dead, it is important to practice and demonstrate our faith by participating in outreach ministries to love and reach others for Christ.
In this world, there are many forms of "Christianity". At VLF, we encourage the practice of Christ-Centered Biblical Christianity and not the popular Christianity of the media, political divide, or the superficial philosophies of men.
At VLF, Jesus is our Senior Pastor (1 Peter 5:4).
We are simply His servants according to His will and word.
We are blessed to have found "The Bible Project". These introductory videos are well made, fun to watch, and will provide you with a basic Biblical overview and understanding.

Please note that these videos are introductory overviews only. For a more complete and detailed understanding of God's word, visit us every Sunday morning at 10 am.

If you’ve ever been puzzled about angels, demons, and other spiritual beings in the Bible, you’re not alone! Our modern depictions of these creatures are mostly based on misunderstandings of who they are and how they fit into the overall storyline of the Bible.
We welcome all people to our services, but only members committed to serving Jesus at our church are considered part of our church body. This is not about membership in a "club". This is about becoming a committed member in a local church body of Christ (Rom 12:4-5; 1 Cor 12:12-30).
One of the best ways to prevent misunderstanding is to clearly define what we believe and what we expect of every member of His church. Therefore, to become a member of VLF, you must first review and agree to our Statements of Belief and Understanding.
