Because God loves us, Rainier Valley Church exists to glorify God, to love one another, and to preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ as we serve our neighbors and the nations.
Currently meeting in the Union Gospel Mission Administration office, Rainier Valley Church (RVC) is a group of believers who gather throughout the week and on Sundays to worship God. Beginning January 2015, after the dissolution of Mars Hill, RVC was born from a desire of its members to still gather together and serve the community of Rainier Valley.
RVC is a family of Jesus-loving, Bible-believing, gospel-centered, Spirit-filled, multi-cultural, mission-minded people. We are former orphans who, by grace, have been adopted as sons and daughters into the family of God through Jesus’ life, death, and resurrection. This invitation into the family of God through Jesus is open to everyone—including you!
We would love to meet you and welcome you this Sunday! We meet at the Union Gospel Mission in Rainier Valley on Sunday mornings at 10am. We will open the Bible for teaching and encouragement in worship of our great God and Savior! You will also experience joy-filled music to lead you in praise and thanksgiving of our God.
No matter your spiritual background or lack thereof, we invite you to come hear about Jesus Christ’s perfect, sacrificial love for you and your family.
Please join us!
