The West Valley is one of the fastest-growing areas in the United States. Most people are moving to this area for better economic opportunities, or they love the sun. In July of 2022, five families moved 2000 miles from Ohio to the West Valley with a dream to help see people live out their God-given purpose. (They were also very excited about the sun:) Whether you have lived here your whole life or you just moved here, we want to help you find your place, your people, and your purpose.

It is more blessed to give than to receive.


We believe that there is one God and that by Him all things are created. He is all-powerful, all-knowing, ever-present, unchanging, perfect, completely worthy of our trust and, above all, holy. God is completely good, loving, compassionate and faithful to His people and His promises. (Deut 32:39; 1 Sam 2:2; Is 44:8; Mark 12:32; Luke 18:19; 1 Cor 8:6; 12:18)

We believe that Jesus, being in nature God, born of a virgin, gave up His divine privileges and left the comfort of heaven, taking on the humble position of a servant, to be born into the chaos and corruption of fallen humanity. He lived innocently, died unjustly and rose again to conquer sin and death, providing a way for man to be eternally reconciled to God. (John 1:1, 14, 20:28; 1 Tim 3:16; Is 9:6; Phil 1:21-23, 2:5-6, 3:21; 1 Tim 2:5; Matt 1:18, 23-25; Luke 1:27-35, 24:16, 36, 39; Is 7:14, 1 John 1:7; Rev 1:5, 5:9; Col 1:20;)

We believe that the Holy Spirit is God’s presence with mankind and convicts all people of sin. For believers, the Spirit renews the soul, empowers Christ-like living, imparts spiritual gifts and guides people into all truth. (Joel 2:28-29; Matt 3:11; Mark 16:17; Acts 1:5, 2:1-4, 17, 38-39, 8:14-17, 44-47, 11:15-17, 19:1-6; Heb 2:4; Rom 1:11, 12:4-8; Eph 4:16; 2 Tim 1:5-16, 4:14; 1 Cor 12:1-31, 14:1-40; 1 Pet 4:10)

There is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. These three are coequal and co-eternal (I John 5:7; Genesis 1:26; Matthew 3:16-17, 28:19; Luke 1:35; Isaiah 9:6; Hebrews 3:7-11).

We believe that the Bible is God’s Word to all people. It was written by human authors under the supernatural guidance of the Holy Spirit. The Bible is truth without any mixture or error and is completely relevant to our lives today. The Bible is the basis for everything we believe and the foundation for everything we teach and do. (2 Tim 3:16; 2 Pet 1:20-21; Prov 30:5; Rom 16:25-26)

Man was created good and upright, but by voluntary transgression he fell; his only hope of redemption is in Jesus Christ, the Son of God (Gen. 1:26-31, 3:1-7; Romans 5:12-21).

We are saved by grace through faith in Jesus Christ: His death, burial, and resurrection. Salvation is a gift from God, not a result of our good works or of any human efforts (Ephesians 2:8-9; Galatians 2:16, 3:8; Titus 3:5; Romans 10:9-10; Acts 16:31; Hebrews 9:22).

We believe that people were created to exist forever – either in communion with God through forgiveness and salvation, which is only found in Jesus, or eternally separated from God by sin. God honors each person’s choice for separation or communion. (Matt 5:3, 12, 20, 6:20, 19:21, 25:34, 41; John 17:24; 2 Cor 5:1; Heb 9:27, 11:16; 1 Pet 1:4; Mark 9:43-48; Rev 14:9-11, 20:12-15, 21:8)

Following Jesus’ command in Luke 22, communion is a unique time of reflection and worship in the presence of God when the elements of bread and juice (the Body and Blood of the Lord Jesus Christ) are taken in remembrance of Jesus’ sacrifice on the Cross. (Matt 26:26-29; 1 Cor 10:16, 11:23-25)

Following faith in Jesus, we are commanded by the Word of God to be baptized in water in the Name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit (Matthew 28:19; Acts 2:38; Mark 16:16; Acts 8:12, 36-38; 10:47-48).

The result of being united with Jesus Christ is that all believers become positional members of his body, the Church. There is one true universal Church, composed of all those who acknowledge Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord. The Scriptures command believers to gather together to devote themselves to worship, prayer, and the teaching of the Word of God. (Ephesians 1:22, 2:19-22; Hebrews 10:25; John 17:20-23)
