Scripture:

"For we are not as many, which corrupt [peddle or try to make money off of] the word of God: but as of sincerity, but as of God, in the sight of God speak we in Christ"
(2 Corinthians 2:17).

Pastor Bergman's Personal Testimony:

"I have coveted no man's silver, or gold, or apparel. Yea, ye yourselves [the congregation of VBC] know, that these hands have ministered unto my necessities, and to them that were with me."
(Acts 20:33-34)

Why Donate:

 

 
  1. The vast majority of you visiting this website have come because you have experienced our Pastor's preaching. [IF this is not the case with you, please Go to Sermons and listen to one]. You have been blessed. You sense the hand of God upon him. You know that he stands without apology and fearlessly upon the Word of God. The projects needed to further the spread of the gospel through those sermons are in need of financing.

  2. Every cent that comes in will be used for the special–need projects listed. [Go to Our Current Project]. These projects will consist of equipment and literature that will further the gospel.

  3. A special account has been set up for all moneys that come in. The money will be kept separate from church offerings. All that comes in will be used exclusively for the proclamation of the gospel.

  4. A receipt will be mailed to you acknowledging your tax-deductible gift.

  5. Not one cent will go to Pastor Bergman. We are a small congregation that depends weekly upon our Lord for the needs to be met. Pastor has been at the same salary for over 25 years (this by his choice). Our Pastor looks to and trusts God to meet his personal needs. He does not profit from this website.

  6. Disclaimer: We are not preachers of the "prosperity theology" (more correctly, "the gospel of greed"). We are not going to tell you if you "sow a seed, God will give it back to you a hundred or thousandfold!" This site is not religious lotto! If you are looking for that, there are plently "peddlers of the gospel" looking for you!
