Our vision is to provide an environment for people to grow in their relationship with God and equip them to spread the love of Jesus.
Gather – Grow – Go
What do we mean?
Gather: Bring together and take in from scattered places or sources.
Grow: Progress to maturity; to have the emotional and/or spiritual part of our character become stronger.
Go: To intend to do something; to take what you have somewhere else.
We desire to reach our world for Jesus
Matthew 28:18-20: Jesus came and told his disciples, “I have been given all authority in heaven and on earth. Therefore, go and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. Teach these new disciples to obey all the commands I have given you. And be sure of this: I am with you always, even to the end of the age.
The Bible is the inspired word of God.
2 Timothy 3:16-17: All Scripture is inspired by God and is useful to teach us what is true and to make us realize what is wrong in our lives. It corrects us when we are wrong and teaches us to do what is right. God uses it to prepare and equip his people to do every good work.
THE HOLY SPIRIT
The Holy Spirit is God within us. We emphasize the Fruit of the Spirit, as well as the Gifts of the Spirit.
John 14:26: But when the Father sends the Advocate as my representative—that is, the Holy Spirit—he will teach you everything and will remind you of everything I have told you.
We honor God through worship.
Romans 12:1-2: And so, dear brothers and sisters, I plead with you to give your bodies to God because of all he has done for you. Let them be a living and holy sacrifice—the kind he will find acceptable. This is truly the way to worship him. Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God’s will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect.
We are a training center for Christians. We will reach the lost and build them up to send them out to the community. (Evangelism)

We build strong families. Therefore, our priorities at BVCC will be quality education, practical living, and teaching our children to live what they are taught. (Discipleship)
We emphasize Bible study to help people of all ages grow and mature. (Discipleship)
Praise and worship from a pure heart is pleasing to God. We will teach what God wants from a worshipper. (Worship)
We emphasize the Fruit of the Spirit, as well as the Gifts of the Spirit. (Holy Spirit)
We will not only reach the lost, but with fresh vision and excitement, we will reach out to those who have walked away from God and the church. (Discipleship)
