Today's world offers many real challenges for believers in Jesus Christ. Relativism, post-modern thinking, and a variety of other popular world views are in conflict with the authority of the Scriptures. Here at Valley Presbyterian Church, we are committed to the authority of God's Word and desire to put footsteps to our biblical convictions. Our College/Career ministry maintains a biblical world-view from a perspective. We embrace the Westminster Confession of Faith and believe that it accurately summarizes biblical teaching. We are committed to Bible Study, fellowship, and genuine Christian living. Towards this end, we offer a Sunday School class, Sunday night fellowship, and various fun activities. We are growing both spiritually and numerically. For further information, please contact the church (818 894-9200) or email Dan Kaiser.
“You shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you mad.” - Aldous Huxley
“You shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.” - Jesus Christ
What will knowing the truth do? Aldous Huxley thought it would make you insane. Do you believe that knowing the truth will set you free? No, really. Do you? We believe that the truth will make us free. The interesting thing is that the “truth” is not a philosophical abstraction, the “truth” is a Person. The ultimate Truth, the ultimate Reality is Jesus Christ. Only by knowing Him can we be set free. He is the beginning and end of our knowledge, so our hope is to bring “into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ.” (2 Cor. 10:5)
“Happiness is not the object of life: life has no object: it is an end in itself...”- George Bernard Shaw
“Man’s chief and highest end is to glorify God, and fully to enjoy Him forever” - Westminster Confession of Faith
Does your life have meaning? A famous Hindu once said at the end of his life, “All of my life has been spent plowing the sea.” Our life is futile if it is not lived according to God’s design and purposes. While God’s “sovereign” will for our lives is hidden from us, His “revealed” will for us is set forth in the Scriptures. The more we practice what we believe, the more we will realize a life full of purpose and joy. At Credo, we won’t necessarily talk about how to make a better living… but we will talk about how to better live according to God’s Word.
“It’s difficult to say what makes a life a real life… You could also say it depends on a person being identical with himself.” - Max Frisch
“Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind.” - The Apostle Paul
Who are you? What are you living for? The answers to these questions shape your thoughts and actions every day. If you want to live as God intended you to live, then you have to know that your “praxis” (practice, way of life) is a result of your “credo” (beliefs). Denying this reality leads to a life of futility, pain, and death. Embracing it— embracing Christ, will lead to forgiveness of sins and fellowship with God. This will lead to a life full of meaning, purpose, and the peace which surpasses understanding.
We hope you will join us as we walk together in the grace of our Lord, Jesus Christ.
Know what you believe.
Know how to live.
“As a man thinketh, so is he.” (Prov. 23:7)
