Our Beliefs

We are an imperfect congregation of believers, striving to serve Christ, one another, the community and the World.
We are a member of the South-Central Mennonite Conference , which is not a member of the Mennonite Church USA.
Spring Valley Church is a welcoming and friendly community, committed to love and serve others.
We believe in:
  • The Trinity
  • The full deity and humanity of Christ
  • The spiritual lostness of the human race
  • The substitutionary atonement and bodily resurrection of Christ
  • Salvation by faith alone in Christ alone
  • The physical return of Christ
  • The authority and inerrancy of Scripture
A more detailed doctrinal statement can be found here.
Our Core Values are:
  • We seek to live godly and peaceful lives, living as Jesus would have us live.
  • We value the Bible as our ultimate guide in doctrine and faith.
  • We live in close community within the church, serving and helping one another.
  • Jesus said, "They will know that you are My disciples as you have love for one another."
  • We value service to others as one of our highest callings.
  • God has called us to share the good news of the gospel of Jesus Christ to the world, therefore Missions, both local and abroad, are a high priority.
  • We believe generosity is commanded by scripture, and strive to live simply freeing up resources for giving.

"Be ready always to make a defense to anyone who calls you to account for the hope that is in you, yet do it with gentleness and reverence." -- I Peter 3:15
