SECTION I.   NAME, PURPOSE, AND COVENANT
Name | Purpose | Covenant
A. Name:
The name of this organization, a corporation, a nonprofit charitable organization shall be VALLEY BIBLE CHURCH of Billings, Montana.
Name | Purpose | Covenant
B. Purpose:
The Purpose of Valley Bible Church shall be to Glorify God.

We will seek to attain this as a corporate body of believers through the public worship of God, the expositional preaching and teaching of the scriptures, consistent Christian living by its members, personal evangelism, missionary endeavors both home and abroad and Christian education.

As a congregation of believers our purpose is to glorify God by developing each individual into committed disciples who desire to honor God in every aspect of their lives. 

The development of each individual into a mature believer, requires each one to be growing in their love for and knowledge of God in obedience to the Great Commandments (Matthew 22:36-40) and committed to reaching their neighbors and the lost with the gospel in obedience to the Great Commission (Matthew 28:18-20).
Name | Purpose | Covenant
C. Church Covenant:
Having received Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior, we do now solemnly and joyfully covenant with God and with one another to promise, by the power of the Holy Spirit, to live according to this church covenant:

As members of the body of Christ, we will pursue God through the consistent study of His word and prayer. We will strive to live a holy life by the grace of God and in accordance with the Word of God. We will endeavor to be a godly example to all people in speech, behavior, and attitude.

We will honor, submit to, pray for, and communicate with our church elders. We will do our best to make their ministry a joy for them (Hebrews 13:17).

We will purpose to stay involved in the body life of this church through faithful attendance at worship services and participation in other programs and events so that we might give and receive the benefits of Christian fellowship. We will do our best to make VBC a friendly, nurturing church both to members and visitors. We will pray for fellow members and ministries of this church and will joyfully extend practical acts of service and kindness to others within the church family.

We will promote the purpose of VBC to make disciples of Jesus Christ by participating in the process of discipleship and encouraging others to do so. We will take individual responsibility for becoming a self-feeding Christian and a spiritual reproducer. We will endeavor to give and receive admonition with love and humility that the body of Christ might mature in righteousness. We will purpose to be slow in taking offense, and quick to make reconciliation. We will submit to the process of church discipline to protect the purity of our church and pursue the restoration of sinning brethren.

We will seek to win the lost for the Lord Jesus Christ by living and verbalizing the truth of the gospel. We will support the missionary enterprise of VBC.

We will serve the VBC body as the Lord enables us through the sacrificial use of our spiritual gifts and talents. We will accept the commendation of the Lord as our reward, and not seek or expect the praise of people. We will give financially according to our means to support the ministries of VBC.

We will be diligent to protect the unity of the VBC body by acting in love toward all other members, by refraining from gossip, by an attitude of deference, and by following our church leaders. We will protect the reputation of our Lord and VBC before the world by living a holy, authentic life.
