At Valleyview Alliance Church we believe that Salvation is far more than simply a conversion experience. We believe that conversion is the first step in one’s relationship with God.
The guiding verse for this section is Romans 12:1–2 “Therefore I urge you, brethren, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies a living and holy sacrifice, acceptable to God, which is your spiritual service of worship. And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may prove what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect.” ”
This area of our vision is the personal section. No one can any of these things for you, they are your responsibility to develop and mature in. In order to accomplish our vision of glorifying God, we believe the following should be happening in our lives:
~Acceptance of Jesus as Saviour
We believe that our relationship with God is only through Jesus Christ. Each one of us has sinned and needs forgiveness, but the only way that forgiveness is available is through confessing our sins and believing in Jesus Christ as our Lord and Saviour. Acceptance of Christ’s work for us on the cross and through His resurrection is the first step for all believers.
We believe that because of Jesus Christ we have the privilege of having a relationship with God. Part of that privilege is that we can come before Him in prayer. This is a necessary component of our relationship with God and should be part of every believers life.
~Reading the Bible
We believe the Bible is the inspired and inerrant word of God and the primary way that God communicates with us. Believers who want to grow in their relationship with God and glorif Him with their lives need to be grounding themselves in the Word of God.
We believe the Bible is the foundation for all that we do and believe. It is important that as believers we have spent time to know and remember it.
We believe that Scripture calls all believers to be baptized. This is a public declaration of what we believe about Jesus Christ. This is necessary a necessary step for our spiritual growth and the development of our faith.
