What We Believe

As Christians, we believe that God loves all people and desires to forgive our mistakes of the past and to guide us into a more positive, productive, and purposeful life.  We believe that Jesus accurately reflected God's will and God's truth, and we strive to follow His example.  We believe that the church community offers opportunities to better understand God's desires, to build supportive friendships, and to share our talents, skills and faith with a hurting world. 

Mission Statement

Supported by historic Baptist principles such as: the integrity of each believer, the freedom of conscience, the autonomy of the local church; and the Scriptures, particularly the teaching of Jesus of Nazareth as revealed in the New Testament, The Baptist Church in the Great Valley shall have as its mission:

To provide an open expression of Christian worship for all sincere persons without regard to religious backgrounds or beliefs; to assist persons in the development of a Christian lifestyle consistent with our historic traditions; to maintain a program of religious education based upon the teachings of the Scriptures; to encourage our membership to join together in the spreading of the gospel to all nations, beginning with our own community; to develop a sense of community into which all persons will be welcome, and to offer opportunities in Christian Service to all of our members.
