North Valley Baptist Church was established in 1975 with a small band of 75 people. In 1976, Dr. Jack Trieber was called to pastor this infant work. God has greatly blessed the ministry of our pastor. From 1975 to present, more than 3.8 million people have come to hear the preaching of God’s Word, with over 78,000 making a profession of faith in Christ for salvation in one of our services, and over 18,900 following the Lord in believer’s baptism.

In these last 42 years, God has enabled the church to experience numerous building projects and expand its facilities to include a 65,000-square-foot building at Clyde Avenue, as well as a six-acre college and church campus at De La Cruz Boulevard.

It has been truly amazing to see the Lord do what some said, “couldn’t be done!”

I can watch the live stream, but when I click a link to an archived service nothing happens. How do I fix the problem?
