WE BELIEVE THAT:
- All Scripture (the Holy Bible) is inspired by God.

- Jesus Christ is the only Son of God. He died on the cross and rose again to redeem humankind from their sins.
- The Holy Spirit is our teacher and guide.
- Man was created in the image of God.
- Salvation is the gift of God and cannot be purchased or earned.
- Satan is the author of sin and the declared enemy of God.
- There will be a bodily Resurrection of the dead and judgment of all humankind.
- The Return of Jesus Christ will be personal and imminent.
- Baptism is the immersion of the believer in water in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
- We observe the Lord’s Supper to commemorate the death of Jesus Christ.
- The Church is a spiritual organism made up of all believers.
The only response to God’s freely given grace is worship that is heart-felt and open. The worship ministry is dedicated to creating an atmosphere of genuine worship, in which God’s Spirit can transform us. Whether on Sunday mornings or during special praise gatherings, see below the ways you can serve.
The Nurturing team works with the pastoral staff to provide training and nurturing opportunities that lead people to spiritual maturity. This includes Bible study, leadership development, mentoring, and training in the spiritual disciplines. We also facilitates Sunday Life Groups (SLG) as a way for our community to grow.
The purpose of the Children’s Ministry is to partner with parents to bring children into a relationship with Jesus Christ and to empower them through teaching, worship, and relationship building so as to serve and share Christ in the world. We strive to teach the Word of God to your child through all our programs.
The Congregational Life team focuses on strengthening our connectedness within the church body, from supporting fellowships and small groups to hosting congregation-wide events. The team also helps bring awareness of what is going on in the Body and also encourages members to become involved.
We are a church that is committed to mission. God is a missional God and calls us to join him in living out and sharing the Good News, which is the message that God loves us and calls us into a new and abundant life in and through Jesus Christ. We are involved in missions both local and overseas.
PRAYER, CARE, & SOCIAL CONCERN
The PCS ministry helps members of our congregation become involved as an expression of the gospel’s holistic concern. This includes praying for the world, the church, and each other; caring for the congregation; and putting faith into action through social concern for the community and the world.
The VCBC logo may seem simple at first glance, but it is embedded with multiple deeper meanings.
The first design element: There are two people—a larger figure formed by the two rectangles on the left and a slightly smaller figure formed by the two on the right. Together, they convey the idea of community that, as Christians, we are not alone in our journey of faith, but that we are together as God’s family. It also shows the dynamic of Christian mentorship and helping each other to grow as they walk side by side.
The second design element: The four rectangles form a cross in the centre, meaning that Christ is at the centre of everything we are and do. Our community and our teaching are centred on Christ and being Christ-like disciples.
The last design element: The four rectangles represent the four emphases in the VCBC mission statement: 1) Character formation, 2) Worldview, 3) Accountability and Growth in Spiritual Life, and 4) Mission and Service. These emphases make up the discipleship emphasis to which we are committed at VCBC.
