Our Mission & Vision


We are firmly committed to the mission God gave us – Making disciples who know God, who are becoming like Christ and who are working to make Him known in Silicon Valley and beyond. In fact, this mission has compelled us to seek the Lord for empowerment and vision.

God has blessed Valley Church abundantly since our beginning as we have been faithful to His Word and true to His mission to reach the world. We remain committed to the following five areas of ministry:

  • Worship Services
  • Children and Youth
  • LIFE Groups
  • Local and Global Gospel Proclamation and Demonstration
  • Stewardship of Resources – Finances, Facilities, Staff, and People

We are also solidly committed to the doctrinal statement that has served Valley Church well these many years.


In our vision for 2024, we’re asking God to continue our growth in three areas: That God would REVIVE our hearts; that He would REFRESH our church family; and that we would REACH OUT to our lost world.

 Revive our Hearts – This is an acknowledgement of the impact of the last few years and looking forward to our hope in Christ. Throughout the Bible, there are many verses that promise that God will strengthen and sustain anyone who comes to Him in faith.

We’re intentionally focusing our preaching on what it means to live by faith and the hope that faith gives us. By God’s grace we continue to dedicate ourselves to worship the Lord with great energy, creativity, and commitment. And we plan to continue celebrating God’s power through testimonies, stories, and worship songs that emphasize hope and strength in Christ.

Refresh our Church Body – We’re asking God to strengthen and sustain our spiritual family at Valley Church. Throughout the centuries God’s people have celebrated His work among them TOGETHER. David said, “I was glad when they said to me. “Let us go to the house of the Lord,” Ps. 122:1.

Our Passover Dinner, Barnyard Bash, Thanksgiving Dinner, Worship Night, Fresh Start Fest, Spring Concert, Hymn Sing, Women’s Christmas Night, and other events are times to gather with God’s people and enjoy His presence among us. We plan to continue these and other large gatherings in 2024. Our “Growth Hour” on Sundays, 9:30 to 10:30 am, has continued to blossom. We also have placed a renewed emphasis on our Life Groups where people gather in homes or at church in smaller groups to enjoy fellowship and support in Christ.

Reach our world – When the world seems chaotic and unruly it might be tempting to only look inward. But God’s word makes it clear that He’s brought us all together for a purpose.

In 2024, when the world is hungry for relationships that matter, we will be placing increasing emphasis on hospitality particularly in the area of local outreach, especially to children through our afterschool programs, and sports ministry summer camps – tennis, volleyball, Kids Games, table tennis and others. We’re looking forward to a special “Christmas Around the World” celebration too.

There is much to look forward to in 2024. Let’s press forward in Christ and all that He wants for us! If you have questions on our mission, vision, or finances, please feel free to talk to any pastor or elder. We’re happy to talk and pray together with you!

In Christ,
Kurt Jones
Lead Pastor, Valley Church
