March 29, 2020 LiveStream Begins Here at 10am Pacific

Text Your "Yay God" Testimony to 619-971-8576

In-Person Services Canceled This Week

A live stream will be offered each Sunday at 10am.

Pursuant to the Governor's order banning groups of 10 or more, our church leadership has decided to offer Sunday morning services online. Wednesday evening activities are on hold until the order allows for groups of 50 to gather again. Some of our Bible studies have continued to meet online as well. Our food pantry, Joseph's Storehouse, is also fully operational.

Please note, the leaders of SVCC recognize that this is a time when we should not be casual, but instead be even more proactive about interceding in prayer and deed for our world and for one another. The devil never misses an opportunity to stoke fear, loneliness, depression, and division. We are deeply troubled by the prejudicial lines of racism and poverty this disease has so quickly exposed in our society. Even though our church may not be meeting in a large group setting, we will be praying harder than ever, encouraging one another more than ever, and standing up for all of those in need - of any faith, color or social standing - more than ever.

If you are struggling with fear, loneliness, or depression at this time, our Pastor has made himself available just to talk and pray with anyone. Pastor Steve's personal cell phone is 619-277-2671, and he'd love to hear from you!

Most of all, we pray that you will know that God is greater than any adversity the world brings our way.

"Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.” (Joshua 1.9)


  • Hebrew meaning "living"
  • Christ Fulfills the Law

    Christ fulfills the law and the prophets — the Old Testament (Matthew 5:17)
    Civil Law, Ceremonial Law, Moral Law

    Christ validates the authority of the Old Testament (Matthew 5:18)
    The gospel is revealed in the New as well as the Old

    Christ expects us to obey and teach even the smallest points (Matthew 5:19)
    Every word that proceeds from God’s mouth is instructive

    Christ expects our righteousness to exceed the Pharisees (Matthew 5:20)
    How can this be?

    We are Satisfied with a Face Lift

    We are content to impress others with a pleasing front

    Jesus Isn’t Satisfied Without a Heart Transplant

    He is out to destroy all self-righteous hypocrisy

    The Problem: No Sure Way to Measure Motive

    The constant danger in programmed discipleship

    Signs of Life: Evidence of Heart-Level Faith

    Love for others, not love of self
    For the entire law is fulfilled in keeping this one command: “Love your neighbor as yourself.”
    (Galatians 5:14)

    Joy, not a burden
    Your statutes are my heritage forever; they are the joy of my heart.
    (Psalm 119:111)

    Peace, not fear
    There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear
    (1 John 4:18)


    Our heart-level motives must be revealed in external righteousness.

    Are you out to impress God or men?

    Our Hope Fulfilled

    Look, I am coming soon! My reward is with me, and I will give to each person according to what they have done.
    (Revelation 22:12)

    New King James Version (NKJV)

    17 “Do not think that I came to destroy the Law or the Prophets. I did not come to destroy but to fulfill. 18 For assuredly, I say to you, till heaven and earth pass away, one jot or one tittle will by no means pass from the law till all is fulfilled. 19 Whoever therefore breaks one of the least of these commandments, and teaches men so, shall be called least in the kingdom of heaven; but whoever does and teaches them, he shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven. 20 For I say to you, that unless your righteousness exceeds the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, you will by no means enter the kingdom of heaven.
