TVC Church Vision

To be ‘a church of 10,000 people in the Tees Valley, connected through a network of small groups drawn together by a common love for Jesus Christ’

Summarised with our ‘strap line’

Core ValuesAt Tees Valley Community Church we have a passion for Jesus. We are a large and growing community of ordinary people, just like you, who are empowered by God to do extraordinary things. We proclaim a message of love for one another and for our community. Our faith is built solidly upon the Bible and we will be courageous in proclaiming the living Word of God.

Our church is proud to be an international house where nations sit side by side, united by a shared faith in the everlasting, living God. We act with compassion to relieve the hardship and distress that we find in the world, touching lives with the awesome and supernatural power of God and celebrating His goodness.



Every day we act upon the vision that has been given to us by God: of a church of ten thousand people in the Tees Valley, connected through a network of small groups drawn together by a common love for Jesus. Inspired by our dynamic relationship with the Holy Spirit, we are audaciously bold in reaching toward that vision, so that together we will make Jesus known and transform the world around us, because we actually believe that biblical love works.

We invite you to join us!

Core Values

These 6 core values are not a trendy snappy list that looks good on a flyer or website. These are 6 deep, profound and passionate revelations from the Bible.  For our lives, families and church.

Living for God’s glory

Because there isn’t anything in life worth serving and giving our lives to greater or better than God’s glory.

Reaching the Lost

With the glorious gospel of Jesus and with the power and the presence of the Holy Spirit – to reconnect every person with God, their glorious Father in Heaven who incredibly transforms our lives and gives us a hope in this life and for eternity!

Making fruitful Disciples

To be those who look like and live like Jesus.  God desires for His church to fully reflect Him and His characteristics; of love, mercy, compassion, self-control, purpose, hope, unity and vision.  Becoming more like Jesus is the most exciting adventure we can ever embark upon.

Bringing compassionate Transformation

 Because God is merciful, kind and full of grace and it’s that kindness that the Bible tells us leads people to repentance – and to connect with Him.  We bring compassionate transformation through many practical ways into our community.

Building a multicultural family

Because the nature of God is first and foremost as a Father and therefore church should be first and foremost a family; a family of many people from many backgrounds and cultures.

Developing an Apostolic Resource

A breadbasket church that feeds and gives away to those outside of itself, a church that gives and sends people, ministries, finances and resources out into the North East region, into the UK and into the World.
