A fundamental ministry of Valley Bible Church is to teach the Word of God and guide the church to know God and serve Him faithfully. Over the years of study, teaching and ministry, we have encountered many doctrinal issues over which Christians have questions and disagreements. As we have developed convictions regarding these theological truths we have attempted to fulfill our mandate to teach and exhort in sound doctrine and to refute those who contradict. We are deeply committed to imparting the full teaching of the Bible to this church and the following papers are an extension of our teaching ministry. Future papers will be added as they are developed. We hope they will be read with care that you will examine whether these things are so (Acts 17:11).
If you would like to respond or ask further questions, please contact Valley Bible at 661-942-2218 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
