OUR VISION & CORE VALUES

We’re here to help people Know God, Find Freedom, Discover their Purpose, and Make a Difference.

Whether you’re new to church, have been a Christian for many years, or are looking for a fresh start, you’re welcome here. Our hope is to give you a place where you experience a fresh, enjoyable connection to God and a community of people. We keep our focus simple so we can have the biggest impact possible. Everything we do as a church is filtered through our focus on helping every person live the full life for which God created all of us.

 
 
KNOW GOD (Sunday and Wednesday Services)
God wants to know us personally.  More than just practicing religion, He wants a relationship with us.  Our Sunday and Wednesday services are where we focus on that relationship.  Whether you’re new to faith, have questions, or have been a Christ follower for a long time, our services are a safe place to learn more about what it means to know God and grow closer to Him.
 
FIND FREEDOM (Small Groups) 
One of the ways God designed for us to live in freedom is to have people in our life to help us in the journey.  Connecting with others in Pine Valley’s Small Groups is a practical and enjoyable way to find that kind of life-changing community.
 
DISCOVER PURPOSE (Growth Track)
We’re all an important part of God’s plan, and our life will never make sense until we discover our purpose.  The Pine Valley Church Growth Track is designed to help us take steps in the important process of discovering purpose, and classes are available on both Sunday and Wednesday.
 
MAKE A DIFFERENCE (Dream Team) 
This is God’s ultimate plan for our life – to make a difference in the lives of others.  When we do, the Bible tells us we will experience joy.  Through PVC Dream Teams, we hope to connect every person to an opportunity to live out their calling by using their gifts and talents to serve others in the church and the community.

AT PINE VALLEY CHURCH …

We believe that every person, Christian and non-Christian alike, is valuable to God and to His Kingdom. Because people are eternally valuable to God, they are to us as well. Responsible evangelism will always be our cause and ongoing discipleship will always be the core of the ministry. (Matt 18:14; Matt 25:45; 2 Peter 3:9)
 
We believe that “doing church as a team” is God’s design for effective ministry. A Spirit-empowered serving with the willing hearted involvement of every person is vital to God’s plan being accomplished. (Eccl. 4:9-12; Psalm 133:1; Eph. 4:11-16; 1 Peter 2:4-9) We believe that a simple presentation of Jesus Christ in creative ways will impact and transform lives. Relating to our culture while remaining true to the Scriptures is a balance we will always keep. This allows us to present the Gospel in such a way that it reaches the heart. (1 Cor. 9:22-23; Acts 17:22-34)
 
We believe every member should commit to a lifestyle of consistent spiritual growth with honest accountability. A genuine love for God is always of first priority. Every Christian should yearn for continual spiritual growth. Therefore, discipleship through small groups, accountability, and open honesty is critical to maturing in our faith. (Mark 12:29-31; Acts 2:44-47; 1 Peter 2:2; 1 Tim. 4:7-8; Prov 27:17)
 
We believe that every member is a minister who has been given gifts to be discovered, developed, and deployed. We are a gift-based, volunteer driven church.Each believer will find his/her greatest joy and fulfillment when serving in his/her gifts and passion. Every believer is created for ministry, gifted for ministry, authorized for ministry, and needed for ministry. (Mark 10:45; Eph. 2:10; Rom. 12; 1 Cor 12:14-20)
 
We believe that God is worthy of our very best. Therefore, a growing spirit of excellence should permeate every activity.Not perfection but excellence with consistent evaluation and willingness to improve for the sake of the Kingdom of God are distinctive of growing ministries. (Psalm 78:72; Dan 5:12; Col. 3:17; Ecc. 10:10)
 
We believe that genuine love and caring relationships are key to the life of every endeavor. Refusing to give audience to a spirit of complaining, we will instead be courageous in solving every problem in a way that honors God and builds biblical character. We value healthy relationships by protecting the unity of the Spirit in our church. (James 1:2-3; 1 Peter 3:8-9; 1 Cor. 13:8; Rom. 16:17; Eph. 4:3)
 
We believe the most effective evangelism happens through people inviting people. We believe that a life will reach a life. Each believer develops genuine relationships with friends and family and extends an invitation to them. Evangelism gets to be a normal natural lifestyle of winning others to Christ, one by one. (Prov. 11:30; John 1:43-45; John 4:28-30)
