Reasons to believe: Sundays, August 5-26, 2018

We live in a world where many people find themselves confused about Christianity.

From skeptics to people in the pews, there are doubts and questions in the air. Is there only one way to God? Is Christianity the one true religion? Can we trust the Bible? For the month of August, we have made it a tradition at South Valley Community Church to address these issues. We invite some of the top Christian thinkers from around the country to give us their insights in these difficult questions.

Join SVCC this August to develop a clearer understanding of your faith and how to express it to others.
