The Bible

We believe that the Bible is accurate and reliable, was written under direct inspiration from God, and is completely authoritative for all Christians. (2 Timothy 3:16; 2 Peter 1:19-21)

God

We believe that there is one true God, the Creator of the universe, who eternally exists in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. (Matthew 28:19; John 1:1,14; John 14:26; 1 Peter 1:2)

Jesus

We believe that Jesus was God’s only begotten Son, was born of a virgin, lived a sinless life, voluntarily died on the cross for our sins, was bodily raised from the dead, ascended into heaven, and will return to earth to initiate the consummation of human history. (John 1:1-18; Acts 2:22-41; Philippians 2:1-11)

The Holy Spirit

We believe the Holy Spirit is equal with God and with Jesus, and provides power to overcome sin, gives insight into Scripture, and personal direction in life. All believers are given the gift of the Holy Spirit at conversion as well as certain gifts to use in ministry. (Luke 11:13; John 16:13; Acts 1:8; Romans 8:11)

Salvation

To become a Christian, one must believe that Jesus is God’s Son, repent of their sin, and be baptized by immersion. (John 3:16; Acts 2:38; Romans 3:23, 10:9; 1 John 1:9)

Human Destiny

We believe that everyone will live forever after they die. Non-believers will be separated from God’s presence for all eternity in hell. Believers will be received into heaven to be with God for all eternity. (John 3:36; Revelation 20-22)

Church Government

Christ’s Church of the Valley (CCV) is affiliated with a fellowship of over 6,000 similar non-denominational churches nationwide in what historians call the Restoration Movement. These churches combine their efforts to support church planting organizations, missionaries, benevolent associations, and Christian Colleges and Seminaries.
