The elders of Spring Valley Church exist to the provide spiritual oversight and direction to our church. They provide council, advice, and accountability to the church. A subcommittee also helps to set the annual budget for the church. The elders consist of 12 members of the church. No less than 1/4 and no more than 1/3 of the elders are staff pastors, which includes the senior pastor. Elders serve one year terms, and there is no limit to the number of terms. Elders are elected by nomination and unanimous vote of the other members of the elders board. The elders meet monthly to prayerfully discuss matters of church leadership.

Spring Valley Church strives to encourage families to live a God-First Life.

We believe in the whole Bible, the Trinity and the power of the Holy Spirit in the lives of believers and the world.

We are a church of many backgrounds (cultural, racial, ethnic, poli-socioeconomics), and share one story – Jesus Christ! We value the inward filling of the Holy Spirit as we outwardly focus on changing the lives of those around us and the world. We value compassion while serving “the least of these,” as we empower people to break free from oppressive living and to enjoy God-First lives.

Spring Valley Church Exists to Help People Live God-First Lives

Spring Valley Church exists to help YOU live a God-first life. Our strategy to do that is to help you take a series of “Next Steps.”

Think of these steps like a God-first life equation, a formula to put God first.

Gathering + Giving = Growing + Going

Know God

God wants to know us personally. More than just practicing religion, He wants a relationship with us. Our weekend services are where we focus on that relationship. Whether you’re new to faith, have questions, or have been a Christ follower for a long time, our services are a safe place to learn more about what it means to know God and grow closer to Him.

Find Freedom

One of the ways God designed for us to live in freedom is to have people in our life to help us in the journey.

Discover Your Purpose

We’re all an important part of God’s plan, and our life will never make sense until we discover our purpose.

Make a Difference

This is God’s ultimate plan for our life – to make a difference in the lives of others. When we do, the Bible tells us we will experience joy. We hope to connect every person to an opportunity to live out their calling by using their gifts and talents to serve others in the church and the community.

The Bible is the Word of God to all humanity and it is practical for everyday living (II Timothy 3:16; II Peter 1:20-21; Psalm 119:105, 160)

There is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son (Jesus Christ) and Holy Spirit. These three are coequal and co-eternal (I John 5:7; Genesis 1:26; Matthew 3:16-17)

In water baptism and baptism of the Holy Spirit (Mark 16:16; Matthew 28:19-20; Joel 2:28-29; Matthew 3:11; Acts 2:4,38-39)

Jesus was born to the virgin Mary, died on the cross; rose again, went to heaven and will come back for all those who are saved (Matthew 1:18, 25; 1 John 2:2; John 19: 28-30; Acts 1:9; 1 Thessalonians 4:16-18)

In the forgiveness of sins and salvation by grace through faith in Jesus Christ (John 3:16; Ephesians 2:8-9; Acts 16:31; Titus 3:5)
