Who we are, where we come from, and where we're headed as a church family

It's our hope that this page answers three basic questions. We want to make sure that you understand the purpose of our church, who we are, and where we are headed in this next season. We love God, we love people, and we would love for you to join us on the mission God has uniquely tasked us with here in Redding, CA. 


Here's the deal, Valley Christian Family cares about one thing more than anything else, Jesus Christ. Valley Christian Family is a family of individuals that have found hope in Jesus, and simply want as many people as possible to experience that exact same freedom.


Community and fellowship have become important qualities of our identity. Our many ministries strive for inclusion and welcome all who come through our doors. We at Valley strive to be an encouraging place to use gifts and talents within the family and as we reach out to our community of Redding, and the world. We choose to be a family that lives by FAITH, lives with HOPE, and lives to LOVE

From children’s ministries to our elder generation, each fills an important role in the life of our church family. If you are searching for a church home, we would be honored to meet you and invite you to join our family.


What's the bottom line? More than ever, Valley Christian Family is committed to fostering a family built around FAITH, HOPE, & LOVE, by putting hope and trust in Jesus for our future. And as we move forward as a church, we desire for those in our community to be welcomed into our family and find who they truly are in Christ.


As long as we love one another we will grow stronger as a family. What does this mean for you? We want you to feel a part of this family. You're always welcome at Valley Christian Family. We're saving a seat for you. Whether you're at the begininng of your faith journey, or have been following Jesus for years, there will always be a place for you in this family.
