Grounded in the Gospel: We believe the good news of Christ's work on the cross is of highest importance. The gospel is the basis for everything we do.
Living Life Together: We believe that a church family should enjoy spending time together outside of the church building. Real relationships are hard to form by just attending a worship service once a week.
Pointing Others to Jesus: We believe our mission as believers is to point others to Jesus through our loving words and actions.
Our story begins in 1961 when Rev. & Mrs. Charley Lewis came as missionaries to Grand County and started Fraser Valley Baptist Chapel. For years this small church met in an old theater and the VFW Hall in Granby, an old saloon in Tabernash, and in 1988 bought the land where the church meets today in Fraser. After changing the name to Fraser Valley Baptist Church, the church launched new ministries in an effort to reach the growing population of Grand County and the ski resort. Sunday mountaintop services at Winter Park continue to be an impactful outreach ministry and our Changes Thrift Store serves people in need throughout the county. In 2020, we changed our name to Valley Life Church as we look to reach beyond our town to see all of Grand County and the High Country reached with the grace and truth of the gospel.
