WHO WE ARE

Why We Exist 

We want to see all people turn to Christ and join us in a journey as we become more and more like Him each day. Everything we do hinges on this mission, because in this dark and hurting world people need to experience the life-changing power of Jesus Christ. 

What We Believe

GOD

God, the Creator, and Ruler of the universe, eternally exists in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. These three, known as the Trinity, are co-equal and one God.

Genesis 1:1 | Genesis 1:26-27 | Genesis 3:22 | Psalm 90:2 | Matthew 28:19 | 2 Corinthians 13:14 | 1 Peter 1:2

ABOUT JESUS CHRIST

Jesus Christ, the Son of God, is equal with the Father. Jesus became fully man, lived a sinless human life, and then offered Himself as the perfect sacrifice for the sins of all people by dying on a cross. After three days, He rose from the dead demonstrating His power over sin and death, then ascended to Heaven. He will one day return to reign as King of kings and Lord over all lords.

Isaiah 9:6 | Matthew 1:22-23 | John 1:1-5 | John 1:14 | John 1:10-30 | Acts 1:9-11 | Romans 1:3-4 | 1 Corinthians 15:3-4 | Hebrews 4:14-15 | 1 Timothy 6:14-15 | Titus 2:13 | Peter 1:2

ABOUT THE HOLY SPIRIT

The Holy Spirit, equal with the Father and the Son of God, is present in the world to make men aware of their need for Jesus Christ. He lives in every Christian from the moment of salvation and provides every Christ follower with power for living, understanding spiritual truth, and guidance for living according to the Word of God. Scripture challenges all Christ followers to seek God wholeheartedly and daily live surrendered to His authority. The Holy Spirit also gives spiritual gifts for the purpose of glorifying God and encouraging others. Christ followers are to supremely regard the fruit of the Spirit as they reflect the character and nature of God, in all things.

Matthew 7:22-23 | John 16:7-13 | John 14:16-17 | Acts 1:4 | Acts 1:5 | Acts 1:8 | 1 Corinthians 2:12 | 1 Corinthians 3:16 | 2 Corinthians 3:17 | Ephesians 1:13 | Ephesians 5:18 | Galatians 5:25

ABOUT THE BIBLE

The Bible, God’s Word was written by human authors under the supernatural guidance of the Holy Spirit. Inspired by God, the Bible is truth without a mixture of error, the source of Christian beliefs, and the final authority for living.

Psalm 119:105 | Psalm 119:160 | Proverbs 30:5 | 2 | Timothy 1:13 | 2 Timothy 3:15-16 | 2 Peter 1:20-21

PEOPLE

People, made in the spiritual image of God to be like Him in character, are the supreme objects of God’s creation. Through Christ, all people have tremendous potential for good, but all are marred by disobedience toward their Creator, which God calls sin.

Genesis 1:27 | Psalm 8:3-6 | Isaiah 53:6a | Isaiah 59:1-2 | Romans 3:23

ABOUT SALVATION

Salvation, God’s offered redemption for sin, is provided through the shed blood of Jesus Christ on the cross. All who, by faith, turn from self-rule to Jesus Christ are forgiven by God and freed from the penalty of sin. No sin is beyond God’s ability or willingness to forgive. Salvation, given by grace, is not attained through self-improvement or good works. Any person who believes that Jesus rose from the dead and confesses that Jesus is Lord of his life, is saved and made a new, spiritual creation.

John 14:6 | Romans 5:1 | Romans 6:23 | Galatians 3:26 | Ephesians 2:8-9 | Titus 3:5

ABOUT ETERNITY

Eternity, God’s will for every human is to experience a life-transforming relationship that is found only in Christ. All humanity will experience a bodily resurrection and a judgment that will determine the fate of each individual. Having rejected God, unbelievers will suffer eternal condemnation apart from Him. Those who choose to follow Christ and His ways, will enter eternal communion with God.

John 3:16 | John 14:17 | Romans 6:23 | Romans 8:17-18 | 1 Corinthians 2:7-9 | Revelation 20:15

LOVE PEOPLE

People matter to God; and since they matter to God, they matter to us! We want our love for God to be shown in our love for each other. Regardless of where you are in your faith journey, at Palm Valley Church we strive to create a safe environment for all people. Whoever you are, you are welcome at PVC! 

GROW IN COMMUNITY

Ever since the very first church began 2000 years ago, community has been at its core. In Acts 2, the Bible says… “All the believers devoted themselves to the Apostle’s teaching, and to fellowship, and to sharing in meals, and to prayer.” We believe that model is still important to every person who follows Jesus today.

CONNECT TO PALM VALLEY

We believe that there is so much more to PVC than just attending a service. In 1 Corinthians 12:27, the Bible says “All of you together are Christ’s body, and each of you are a part of it.”  We long for you to connect to the vision of PVC: everyone is invited to find salvation in Jesus and discover God’s purpose for their lives. 

SERVE OTHERS

We believe in an active faith in God and a lifestyle of serving others. Jesus modeled this, as Mark 10:45 says, “For even the Son of Man came not to be served, but to serve others and to give his life as a ransom for many.” We invite you to join us as we serve those around us through ministry teams, local outreach, and mission trips.
