The purpose of Valley Park’s Missions Committee is to serve as the hands and feet of Jesus Christ. We serve and obey God’s commands to care for the community – to serve the sick, the hungry, the downtrodden, those having short-term financial problems – anyone who needs God in their lives. We invite all members of the congregation to be involved in mission work. Valley Park Church is actively involved in Missions both at home and abroad.
Every week our church serves the community with our food pantry.
American Baptist Churches USA
We also participate in missions partnerships with the local American Baptist Churches of Los Angeles, the Southwest, and Hawaii, (aka ABCOFLASH). We assist those in need locally, especially Faith in Christ Ministries, a ministry that serves those with depression, anger, hurt, hopelessness and more.
With the American Baptist Churches, USA we serve as good stewards of God’s resources and are God’s witnesses in our homes, church, community, nation, and world. We show the world the love of God and our faith in Him by what we do.
