Living Life to the Full

We are a very simple church with a very simple mission: to love God and to love others. We don't make it complicated, we don't get hung up on trying to be trendy or fashionable. Those things just don't last. Our main concern is keeping it real with God, with ourselves and others.

Who We Are

SVCC is a nondenominational, Bible-believing fellowship out to make a difference in Spring Valley by sharing the peace, hope and justice of Jesus Christ. People at SVCC come from all walks of life and various backgrounds. While our Full Doctrinal Statement (read more below) will probably answer all of the major questions about what we believe, we invite you to connect with one of our pastors ( to dig deeper and ask whatever questions you may have about or doctrine and teaching.

Kids God loves kids! We always welcome children in worhsip services, but we also provide a staffed nursery. Additionally, kids up to 6th grade are dismissed for a kid-friendly message during the Sunday message. During the week, SVCC runs a very fun Awana club for kids K-12. Awana is an exceptional program that emphasizes Bible learning, friendships and fun.

Making a Difference: In addition to our regular worship services on Sunday Mornings (English at 10 am and Spanish at 11:30 am), we are actively involved in our community throughout the week. Our high-energy kids program, AWANA, meets on Wednesday nights September-May from 6:00-8:00. Our Youth Group meets throughout the year on Wednesday nights from 6-8pm. Our men's and women's groups meet thoguhout the year at various locations for prayer, study, service and retreats.Finally, we provide food to needy families once a month on every third Tuesday. In addition to these regular events, we hold a number of events for all ages throughout the year, including women's encouragement events, small group Bible studies, community cleanups, etc.

Services: Everyone is encouraged to "come as you are" - just the way Jesus would probably like it. Some wear suits and ties, while most wear casual clothing such as jeans, t-shirts and sandals. Worship and prayer is followed by a message for adults (and an optional kid's church time for kids ages 4 - 6th grade). Messages are on relevant topics from a Biblical perspective, and delivered by Pastor Steve Babbitt or Pastor Javier Rodriguez. Our English worship band is always in pursuit of both excellence and authenticity. Led by our very talented and very genuine lead worshiper Dustin O'Neal, you will hear a range of styles from classic hymns to rocking guitar anthems. There is only one goal of the worship at SVCC -- to sing and play to an audience of One -- the heavenly Father. We worship Him and Him alone.

Pastors: Lead Pastor Steve Babbitt is easy to approach. In fact, you can email him directly if you'd like to set up a time to get to know him better. Email Pastor Steve at , or call him on his cell phone at (619) 342-1414. Check out Pastor Steve's story here.

See For Yourself: Well, that's the most commonly asked stuff. There is a lot more -- but of course we'd like to meet you in person! Come visit us some time on a Sunday morning or Wednesday night. There's no obligation to commit to anything and no requirement to join the church. We want you to feel as comfortable as possible for your first visit, and if there's anything we can do to improve your experience, we'd like you to let one of our pastors know! More importantly, we'll simply be glad to meet you!
