Everyone, regardless of religious background, is welcome at ValleyLight Church. At ValleyLight, you will find people from Catholic, Charismatic, Latter-day Saints, non-denominational, Baptist, and with no religious background. ValleyLight is made up of people from different walks of life, marital status, economic status, political preferences, and ethnicities. All are welcome to attend.
Come dressed as you are comfortable. If you like a suit and tie or wearing pantyhose, you are welcome to wear them. If it is hot outside and you want to wear shorts, then wear shorts. Jeans are always welcome and what you are most likely to see. At ValleyLight, we are more concerned with what is happening on the inside than how you look outside.
ValleyLight is a non-denominational, independent church and has local church governance. ValleyLight partners with the Send Network and Southern Baptist Convention to support church planting, international missions, and pastoral education.
There is a lack of Evangelical Churches in Utah and more so in West Valley and Magna. We are thankful for the other Westside churches and pray for their continued success. There simply are not enough churches. We believe in the Bible Focused, Christ-Centered, and Outreached minded emphasis of Evangelical Churches.
ValleyLight has multiple local and national partners providing support to ValleyLight Church.
In short, a local Christian Church is made up of like-minded Christians gathering to grow, encourage, and minister with one another and not a building. Buying or building property in Utah is expensive. Being an independent church also means ValleyLight is responsible for buying our own building. As ValleyLight grows and matures as a church, there is a chance, we could purchase a more permanent meeting space. Until then, we are thankful to be able to meet in a school.
The primary translation we will use is the Christian Standard Version. Other versions commonly used by members include New International Version, New King James Version, and English Standard Version. We use the Christian Standard Version for its use of the oldest and most reliable manuscripts currently available and for its balance of readability and faithfulness to the original text.
