Kingdom Diversity

Valor affirms the beliefs that God has created beauty and purpose that is manifested in diversity among people based on a wide range of characteristics.

Valor affirms the beliefs that God has created beauty and purpose. This is manifested in diversity among people based on a wide range of characteristics, including age, sex, nationality, ethnicity, race, and socio-economic status, and that all human beings, having been created by God, are loved by God, and are worthy of respect, honor and love by members of Valor’s Christian Community. 

We believe that we are all one in Christ; our unity supersedes our differences. We can celebrate God’s ministry of reconciliation through the atoning sacrifice of the Lord Jesus Christ, his death, burial and resurrection.

There is neither Jew nor Gentile, neither slave nor free, nor is there male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus.  

Galations 3:28

Kingdom Diversity Continued


We believe that Jesus Christ is the ultimate model we should seek to imitate. When asked what was the greatest commandment in the law, Christ summed it up by directing us to Mark 12:30-31, "Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.’ The second is this: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no commandment greater than these.”

Our neighbors are brothers and sisters of different color and background who enable God to paint a beautiful picture of multiple cultures living in harmony for his purposes. We embrace the pursuit of glorifying God as we live together and support each other with grace, dignity and charity. Believers living in harmony with others should be a light and witness to a deeply divided world. They will know we are followers of the Lord Jesus Christ by our love for one another.
