Our Purpose is to define authentic manhood. In our society, being a man is confusing. There are a number of definitions according to the world's standards. We will look at the Biblical call to be a real man as one who rejects passivity, accepts responsibility, leads courageously and invests in eternity.
The purpose of the Men's Ministry at Valley is expressed in Colossians 1:28
"That we may present every man complete in Christ."
What does it mean to be "complete in Christ" as a man?
To be complete in Christ means that we are happy in being a man! We provide for our family, fight for righteousness sake, have close male friends that encourage us and are faithful to our wife (or keeping ourselves sexually pure before marriage).
In Proverbs 27:17 we are told, "As iron sharpens iron, so one man sharpens another." Strong men build up other strong men.
Small groups of men are regularly being established. Their primary purpose is to help men grow in their relationship with God and build deep friendships with other godly men. A natural result of this is spiritually stronger men, husbands, fathers, families and churches. Also, a small group setting facilitates solid and deeper friendships with other men. Currently our Men's small group meets on Wednesday nights at 6pm in the old fellowship hall here at VBC.
The Men's Ministry of Valley Baptist Church has, in the past several years and will continue in the future years, to participate in large men's gatherings such as the Gridiron Conference in Alabama, as well as many other activities.
The men of VBC have many activities designed for fun and friendship such as softball leagues, fellowship gatherings, and local and global missions. It’s OK to have fun! Try it! These are just a few of the many activities to check out.
