water supply valve frozen to pipe

I have a bathroom water supply valve that is really stuck to the copper supply pipe coming from the wall.

Teflon tape is visible, but this valve will not budge despite my using vice grips on the pipe to stabilize it, and a good sized wrench in the valve nut itself.

Would heat from a propane torch loosen this?

I really do not want to cut this pipe and try to rethread it.

Any ideas would be appreciated.
