Christians believe God’s Word and live to glorify God by worshiping Him and loving our neighbors.
All the books of the Old and New Testaments, given by divine inspiration, are the written Word of God.
God, by His Word and for His glory, freely created the world from nothing and made us in His own image.
Jesus lived a sinless human life and offered Himself as the perfect sacrifice for the sins of all people.
The Holy Spirit is coequal with the Son of God. He is present to make people aware of their need for Jesus.
God is the Creator and Ruler of the universe. He has existed as the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
“The essence of the Christian religion consists in the reality that the creation of the Father, ruined by sin, is restored in the death of the Son of God, and recreated by the grace of the Holy Spirit into a kingdom of God.” – Herman Bavinck
Christians believe God’s Word and live to glorify God by worshiping Him and loving our neighbors. The most basic beliefs of the Christian faith are articulated in the Apostle’s Creed.
“From [God] and through him and to him are all things. To him be the glory forever! Amen.” (Romans 11:36) Reformed Christians have a high view of the power, holiness, grace, glory, and faithfulness of God. Our congregation believes the teachings of the Three Forms of Unity, which originated from the Protestant Reformation. Some great Christian teachers you’ll hear about at Almond Valley are Augustine, John Calvin, Jonathan Edwards, Charles Spurgeon, Herman Bavinck, and Martyn Lloyd Jones.
Almond Valley is a congregation of Jesus’ followers. Some of us have been Christians for years and others are just beginning a life of devotion to the Lord. Through God’s Word and Spirit we all are built up in Christ and equipped for works of service. We are known as a church that is friendly, Bible-believing, and servant-hearted. The best way to learn more about AVCRC is by attending a worship service on Sunday.
You’ll find parking on three sides of our church building. When you enter the building, you’ll quickly see our “Welcome Center” in the foyer. There will be someone stationed there to greet you and answer any questions you have about Almond Valley in general or the worship service in particular.
