We are called to reach into our community to share the Good News and the love of God. Our passion is to make a transformation difference in our multi-ethnic city of over 400,000.
We accomplish this through the following mission-focused ministries:
Community Outreach Events:
G.R.O.W. Visitation: Each Tuesday night we go out and share the good news of Jesus Christ with people in our community and invite them to a Life Group. We call this outreach “G.R.O.W. visitation.” There is free dinner and childcare provided and it starts at 5pm in the Fellowship Hall. Come help us reach outside of the boundaries of our church walls with a message that can change lives!
Karen Watson Run: Annual missions fundraiser event honoring missionary Karen Watson who lost her life serving God while on mission.
Shafter Migrant Camp: Annual summer outreach to local migrant families who arrive each year to work in our local agriculture industry.Christmas Connection: Annual event that spreads the love of Christ to local and global families through Angel Tree, Operation Christmas Child, and Valley Bus Kids.

NATIONAL CHURCH PLANTING AND DISASTER RELIEF
We have helped directly launch many church plants in the United States and are currently partnering with 3 church plants here in our own nation:
Eden Church: San Jose, CA
In 2015, we sent out one of our own pastors, Daniel Atondo, to start a church in the Silicon Valley of California. 95% of the 3 million people who live in the Silicon Valley do not attend a gospel-centered church. We are continuing to support this church as they try to reach this culturally influential region with the love of Christ.
Malibu Gathering: Malibu, Ca
As a church of Jesus Christ, Malibu Gathering exists to build a new community through the power of the gospel, creating a love for God, one another, and our city.
Resonate: Pullman, WA
Resonate is a church plant that began in 2006 by 5 people who had a heart to see college students come to Christ. Since then, God has used this church to baptize over 500 people!
North American Mission Board of the Southern Baptist Convention
We also partner with the NAMB to start thousands of new churches each year. http://www.namb.net/

Valley Baptist Church is also involved with Disaster relief by showing the love of Christ in a tangible way when disaster strikes, both here and around the world.
