The Bible teaches that everything belongs to God, and that man is merely a steward of His world. As we increasingly learn to understand the gospel, giving is not seen as an obligation, but as an act of worship.
As Jesus gave himself for our redemption, so we too ought to give cheerfully and generously to meet the needs of our community and our world. Valley Life believes in this vision, and as such we direct at least 10% of our budget to missions and church planting. We hope that as you see the gospel in your life, you will see planned, regular giving as part of your worshipful response to God.
We will be knocking down walls and restructuring the interior of the building to combine our current space with the space currently occupied by CrossFit. With our changes:
We are taking on this project because we will plant stronger churches when we are a stronger church. Also, we are the kind of church who can do this. God has given Valley Life Church the mission to make disciples and plant churches, and we must be careful not to let anything derail us. In the short history of this church, it has never existed for itself. We exist to make disciples of people who are not here yet, and to plant churches in places that we may never visit. This self-sacrificing mission has made us a generous, others-focused people. This selfless assumption makes us the perfect people to complete this building.
It is our goal to complete this within the next two years. We will begin the capital campaign to start raising money and will build in phases. We have no desire to take on more debt, but see ourselves raising money, building, raising money, building, until the expansion is complete.
We’ve projected it to cost 1.5 million which we would like to raise over the next 2 years during the campaign.
This is a big deal and we expect questions, so please send any questions to: PressOnQuestions@valleylife.church
