Our Church


NVBC was established in 1975. Since then, God has enabled this church to experience numerous building projects and expand its facilities. Solid numerical growth also brought an extension of ministries which include thriving soul-winning and bus ministries, an aggressive missions program, and a Christian school.

Our Pastor

Students are privileged to learn much about worldwide evangelism in the “classroom” of the North Valley Baptist Church as workers of the C-Ministry. This ministry is comprised of bus routes, nursing homes, Sunday morning services, and weekly soul-winning outreach. Each student will be able to learn and grow alongside fellow students with the same goal in mind. This and other ministry opportunities allow our students to put their weekday training into practical action on the weekends.
