“Each one mature in Christ”
Valley Baptist Church
is independent from all affiliation and dedicated to the accurate presentation of the Word of God for the maturing of the Saints and the edifying of the Body of Christ through the spiritual growth of our members.
We are literal in our interpretation of the Scriptures accepting the normal usage of language as God's intention for human readers. As a result, we have a Bible-based theology built upon the grammar of the Hebrew, Greek and Aramaic languages.
We are located in Cherry Grove, Oregon. We meet in the white church building in the picture. Cherry Grove is 12 miles south and west of Forest Grove. We are 6 miles from Gaston. Please use the "Directions" tab for directions on how to get to our church.
Since we are so far from town, we eat lunch and have the afternoon service before we go home. We bring our own brown bag lunch except on the first Sunday of the month when we have a Pot-luck dinner. On Pot-luck Sunday please bring a hot dish and also either a salad or dessert.
We have many sermons to listen to on our website. You may download any of them and listen to them over and over. We also have written material to read or copy under the "Written Papers" tab.
The Gospel By Which You Are Saved
I Corinthians 15:1-4
"Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand: By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain.
For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures; And that He was buried, and that He rose again the third day according to the Scriptures."
I Corinthians 15:1-4

Dispensational Theological Seminary
is the extension of the educational ministry of the Valley Baptist Church of Gaston, Oregon. Being such, its purpose is to glorify God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ by accepting students who can reasonably be supposed to have the spiritual gift of pastor-teacher or teacher and to teach courses designed to increase the student's biblical knowledge and equip the student to use library tools to exegete and propagate Biblical knowledge in a local church, so that each Christian may be mature in Christ: Colossians 1:28.
David K. Spurbeck, Sr. is Professor of Hebrew and Bible Analysis at Dispensational Theological Seminary, located in Gaston, Oregon and Pastor of Valley Baptist Church, Gaston, Oregon located in Cherry Grove. A graduate of Western Baptist Bible College and San Francisco Baptist Theological Seminary, he has been in pastoral ministry since 1970. He has served churches in El Sobrante, California (6 years) and Gaston, Oregon (39 years). He has taught in the Seminary since 1976 teaching Hebrew, Old Testament, Bible Analysis and Pastoral Theology. He is the author of two books: The Christian "In Christ": An Introduction to "In Christ" Truth and Me! A Priest? The Priesthood of the Grace Believer. He was married to his wife Pat for more than 37 years before her death and is the father of two adult children.
The following is a synopsis of The Christian "In Christ". The book was written for the person who has believed 1 Corinthians 15:1-4 which is the gospel for salvation. The subject of this book is a systematic study from Scripture of a believer's Position and Possessions because he is "in Christ." These truths are practical - divinely practical for the true Christian. They are the basis for all spiritual growth. 408 pages.
The following is a synopsis of the book Me! A Priest? It is a book on the Priesthood of the Grace Believer. Every Christian is a priest. No other group of people in history has had the privileges that true Christians do. Aaron, as Israel's high priest, couldn't imagine that anyone could have such superior privileges with God as priests in a kingly, heavenly priesthood. On the day of Pentecost, the Spirit of God began immersing grace believers into the Body of Christ, the Church which is His Body. That Body is a kingdom of priests. As a result, there are unique provisions for the grace believer. This book provides the teaching from Scripture on those unique provisions. The Church doesn't have a Priesthood. It is a Priesthood. 682 pages.
The Christian “In Christ” at $19.95 each plus $4.95 postage = Total $24.90.
Me! A Priest? at $24.95 each plus $4.95 postage = Total $29.90.
