of the VALLEY




There’s a fresh wind blowing in the Murrieta/Temecula Valley. It is the wind of openness and inclusiveness, the fresh breeze of a community built upon an affirmation approach to life which respects the customs and integrity of all persons. This fresh wind is called United Church of the Valley. This church comes from a tradition of calling and gathering God’s people to respond to the world with new eyes and new hearts. It is a church of vision and involvement. We unashamedly work hand in hand with our God to dismantle the fences which have been erected between people. We follow God’s vision of a just world where all will live peacefully, growing in their concern for each other.

Our Vision

We shall continue in the traditions of our fore-parents in the faith, following God’s spirit in establishing missions of education, fellowship, outreach and healing. 

Our Activities

 In all of our activities we shall keep uppermost the goal of enhancing the spiritual growth of ALL of God’s people.



We believe that each person is unique and valuable.

It is the will of God that every person belong to a family of faith where they have a strong sense of being valued and loved.

We believe that God calls us to be servants in the service of others

And to be good stewards of the earth’s resources. ‘To believe is to care; to care is to do.’

We believe that each person is on a spiritual journey

And that each of us is at a different stage of that journey.

We believe in the power of peace and justice,

And work for nonviolent solutions to local, national and international problems.

We believe that all of the baptized belong body and soul to our Creator.

No matter who – no matter what – no matter where we are on life’s journey – notwithstanding race, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, class or creed – we all belong to God and to one worldwide community of faith. We baptize during worship when the community is present because baptism includes the community’s promise of ‘love, support, and care’ – and we promise we won’t take it back, no matter where your journey leads you.

We believe that all people are invited to share in the sacrament of Communion.

The breaking of bread and the pouring of the cup reminds us of the price of Christ’s sacrifice and the discipleship to which we are all called.  In the breaking of bread, we remember and celebrate Christ’s presence among us and family and friends who have gone before us. 

We believe in connecting

hearts, heads and hands.
