Welcome to Valley Stream Baptist Church
Your Place to Connect With God
At Valley Stream Baptist Church, we know that inspiration opens hearts. An open heart is an open mind and an open mind is one that can practice tolerance, experience gratitude and feel the glory of God. It is our belief that God is present in all of us, but His active presence can only be felt through faith in Him. We are dedicated to the service of God and all his people, and our goal is to inspire you through the holiness of our dwelling and our services. We invite you to become a part of our growing congregation.
The Valley Stream Baptist Church was started when an arm of the American Baptist, established and dedicated Alden Terrace Baptist Church in June of 1950. After serving the community, the society realized that a Baptist Church was needed in the area. At the time when the original building was dedicated the church membership was only twenty-eight members.
STATEMENT OF FAITH
1. We believe that God is a Trinity revealed to Man as God the Father, God the Son and
God the Holy Spirit, being separate and yet indivisible.
2. We believe the scriptures to be God's own words expressing His complete revelation to
Man with regards to His plans and purposes. They are complete, without error or
contradiction and are the absolute truth.
3. Scripture is its own commentary and its own interpreter.
