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 out to others for Christ (John 21:15-17).
The centerpiece of Valley Life Free Church is our resurrected Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, who became flesh, lived among us, died on the cross for our sins, and now sits at the right hand of the Father.
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 Bible 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.
At VLF, Jesus is our Senior Pastor (1 Peter 5:4).
We are simply His servants according to His will and word.
