The major concerns of Almond Valley's ministry are to bring "life" to people. That is life in all respects as presented in the Scriptures through our Lord Jesus, the Christ: new life, long life, abundant life, eternal life.
Our Mission is to make the life-changing message of Jesus Christ come alive for the people of our fellowship, community and world.
Our Vision is to help people become a part of a living and vital community of Christ's beloved fellowers as we:
Worship by praising our God.
Educate by teaching about the love of the Father.
Serve by using the gifts of the Holy Spirit.
Tell by proclaiming the message of the Son.
When we gather as children of our heavenly King, we're prompted to exhibit love for God and one another.
