Visitor - A Letter from Pastor Tom
Welcome to Petaluma Valley Baptist Church!
This is a special community. A serious commitment to the word of God is a core value that enlivens the fellowship of the Petaluma Valley Family and informs the way we do everything we do. We study God's word to find out what God is saying to us and then we make whatever adjustments are necessary in our lives to be conformed to the truth that God has spoken to us. God has blessed that commitment to His word with a sweet spirit of love and unity.
One of the most exciting gifts that God has given the Petaluma Valley Family is a very clear vision for 2012. We have sensed that God is calling each of us to live in the neighborhoods in which He has planted us with the specific intent of loving our neighbors to Christ. God is has even given us an action plan for following His vision: we are praying for our neighbors, we are caring for our neighbors through simple acts of kindness that demonstrate Jesus' love for them and we cultivating a spirit of readiness to share the good news of the gospel with them when God prompts us to do so.
