What To Expect

We seek to honor God in all we do while bridging the gap between contemporary and traditional worship. You can join us in suit and tie, t-shirt and shorts, or anything in between. We don't have it all together; we may occasionally skip a beat during worship or miss a note, but we worship with our whole hearts. And we strive to follow the leading of the Holy Spirit.

At Pleasant Valley children are welcomed, and embraced. Our Children's Ministry is fully equipped for infants to 6th grade. We are excited to share God's word with your children while you attend the sermon.

Our Sunday service begins at 11:00a.m. For homebound or others not able to regularly attend, and to spread the Gospel, we broadcast Pastor Don's sermons on WYSL 1040 AM on Sundays at 7:00a.m. Or you can listen to the podcast at

Our Core Values

We believe that Jesus is central to everything. We believe that prayer is a direct line to God, and that we should speak to Him every chance we get. Worship is our chance to praise God, and we take joy in doing so.

The Bible is the inspired word of God made complete in the life and teachings of Christ

All Scripture is God-breathed and is used for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in the righteousness, so that the man of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.

2 Timothy 3:16-17 NIV

Salvation is the free gift of God, but is given to us only when we accept Jesus Christ as Lord of our life

For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.

John 3:16 NIV

Jesus Christ is Lord, and every area of our life is subject to his Lordship

Then he said to them all: “If anyone would come after me, he must deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow me":

Luke 9:23 NIV

Every believer has direct access to God through Jesus Christ

Jesus answered, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.”

John 14:6 NIV

The Holy Spirit of God lives in each redeemed follower of Jesus Christ

And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Counselor to be with you forever – the Spirit of Truth. The world cannot accept him, because it neither sees him nor knows him. But you know him, for he lives with you and will be in you.

John 16:13 NIV

Sharing the Good News is the responsibility of every Christian

Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.

Matthew 28:19-20 NIV

Our History

In 1983 the Director of Missions for the Greater Rochester Baptist Association had a vision for a new church start in Livingston County. He contacted a couple that worked the summer before for the association doing missionary work as their internship for seminary. In the fall of 1984 they found an abandoned church in Cuylerville and asked if they could rent the church from the owner. The owner was willing to let them use the church and make repairs on their own. In December of 1985, the church voted to become constituted, and had over 25 members. They voted to keep the missionary, David Brown, as their first pastor. In 1987, they purchased land on Lakeville Road, also known as Rt.20A, in Geneseo. In the summer of 1988, with the help of several churches from Georgia, the present building of Pleasant Valley Baptist Church was built.
