What We believe:
There is one God, eternally existing in three distinct persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. These three are co-equal and each possesses all of the attributes of God. God is the Creator and Sustainer of the universe and everything in it.
ABOUT JESUS CHRIST
Jesus Christ is the Son of God. He is one with God the Father and the Holy Spirit. Jesus Christ is our Savior, who was born of a virgin, lived a sinless life, died on a cross for all sin, and was raised from the grave after three days to demonstrate His defeat of sin and death. He ascended into heaven and will return again to earth to reign as our powerful King.
ABOUT THE HOLY SPIRIT
The Holy Spirit is one with God the Father and Jesus Christ. Those who accept Christ as their Savior will receive the Holy Spirit to live inside them. The Holy Spirit serves as our comforter, guide, and advocate. The Holy Spirit is given to Christians and provides guidance in living, an understanding of the Bible, and prayerfully intercedes for them.
ABOUT THE BIBLE
Our foundation is based firmly upon the Bible as our final authority on Christian beliefs and as a guide to living. The Bible is divinely inspired by God, without error, given to man so that we may know and understand the truth of God and His love.
Salvation is not something that can be purchased or earned. It is a free gift from God provided by Jesus' sacrifice on the cross and is received through faith. It is available to everyone who accepts Jesus Christ as their Savior and Lord. That faith is expressed through repentance of sin and baptism by immersion.

Verde Valley Christian Church exists to help each of us take steps from wherever we are to where God wants us to be by growing us in grace and truth through Jesus Christ in relationships designed by Him.
THIS MEANS ALL ARE WELCOME BECAUSE NONE OF US HAVE IT ALL TOGETHER.
We must continue to grow in grace and truth to better resemble Jesus. Though we are sinners, God loves us and sent his Son to prove it. We don't achieve His approval, we connect and receive it and enjoy a relationship with Him that changes us for the better and forever.
Through God's grace and in partnership with the Holy Spirit, we invite, encourage, and help individuals who are currently far from God, to move closer to where He wants them to be.
Our core statements cover key principles to help the church take steps closer to where God wants us to be:
