Launched in November of 2013, the AV Dream Center is a volunteer driven, faith-based 501(c)3 non-profit organization founded by John and Denise Perry. The desire was put on their heart to open a Dream Center in the Antelope Valley after seeing, first hand, the incredible impact the Los Angeles and Phoenix Dream Centers have been making in the lives of people.
Their dream is to see individuals, churches, businesses and other organizations come together with the goal to reach, help, support, train, and empower others….encouraging the "neighbor helping neighbor" philosophy. But, most of all, their dream is to see people come to know Jesus Christ and the overwhelming love that God has for them.
We are committed to reaching people in order to build them up, restore hope in their lives, and inspire them to dream again.
As we share the good news of God's redeeming love, our vision is to meet people where they are physically, emotionally, and spiritually. Our desire is to instill hope to the destitute, and assist in providing basic needs to those struggling to make ends meet. More importantly, to promote a community of people who build and support one another by sharing their time, resources, and love to those in need.
What We Believe...
What We Believe...
WE BELIEVE…The Scriptures are Inspired by God and declare His design and plan for mankind.
WE BELIEVE…There is only One True God–revealed in three persons…Father, Son, and Holy Spirit (commonly known as the Trinity).
WE BELIEVE…In the Deity of the Lord Jesus Christ. As God’s son Jesus was both human and divine.
WE BELIEVE…though originally good, Man Willingly Fell to Sin–ushering evil and death, both physical and spiritual, into the world.
WE BELIEVE…Every Person Can Have Restored Fellowship with God Through ‘Salvation’ (trusting Christ, through faith and repentance, to be our personal Savior).
WE BELIEVE…and practice two ordinances—(1) Water Baptism by Immersion after repenting of one’s sins and receiving Christ’s gift of salvation, and (2) Holy Communion (the Lord’s Supper) as a symbolic remembrance of Christ’s suffering and death for our salvation.
WE BELIEVE…the Baptism in the Holy Spirit is a Special Experience Following Salvation that empowers believers for witnessing and effective service, just as it did in New Testament times.
WE BELIEVE…Sanctification Initially Occurs at Salvation and is not only a declaration that a believer is holy, but also a progressive lifelong process of separating from evil as believers continually draw closer to God and become more Christlike.
WE BELIEVE…The Church has a Mission to seek and save all who are lost in sin. We believe ‘the Church’ is the Body of Christ and consists of the people who, throughout time, have accepted God’s offer of redemption through the sacrificial death of His son Jesus Christ.
WE BELIEVE…The Bible teaches that each of us must commit ourselves to reach others for Christ, to worship Him with other believers, to build up or edify the body of believers–the Church and to Meet human need with ministries of love and compassion.
WE BELIEVE…Divine Healing of the Sick is a Privilege for Christians Today and is provided for in Christ’s atonement (His sacrificial death on the cross for our sins).
WE BELIEVE…and look forward to the perfect New Heavens and a New Earth that Christ is preparing for all people, of all time, who have accepted Him. We will live and dwell with Him there forever following His millennial reign on Earth. ‘And so shall we forever be with the Lord!'
