“Helping each other follow Jesus Christ”
“To be a people who delight in worshipping Jesus, seek to know him more and are being shaped by God to be a redemptive presence in our community through proclaiming the gospel, feeding the hungry and nurturing one another in love.”
East Valley Church has been an important part of the community since
1901. Started by Dutch immigrants it has evolved into a congregation of people
from diverse backgrounds and religious traditions. We believe that we are a church
that belongs to Jesus Christ and to this community and we see it as our mission to
bring the two together.
Who We Are
We seek to focus on Jesus Christ who is the Way, the Truth and the Life. We believe the Bible is God’s word to us. We are a vibrant community, a place of spiritual nourishment and encouragement. It is our desire to live out the good news of Jesus Christ.
