So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God.

- 1 Corinthians 10:31 NIV

When Big Valley Grace Community Church began, God led the group of men seeking to start a church in Modesto, CA to a particular passage: 1 Corinthians 10:31. Our purpose, the reason we exist, was established to bring God glory in all that we do!

Our purpose is closely tied to our Core Values, because we value that which brings God glory! God is glorified when we worship Him, serve Him, grow in Him, connect with others in the Body of Christ, and reach others with the message of the Gospel. Our purpose is also closely tied to our Mission, since loving God, loving people, and making disciples is a mission aimed and aligned at bringing God glory.

This purpose continues to be the prayer and pulse of our church; that we would be a church, a group of believers, who live our lives in such a way that we do absolutely everything for the glory of God.
