South Valley Community Church

A gospel centered & mission focused community

South Valley Community Church has served in the community for over 35 years.

Our church has always had a vision... "To be a Regional church and educational center with community transforming influence sending people across the street and around the world."

It began in 1984 when a young couple believed God had put a call on their lives to minister to the people of Gilroy, California. Eric and Carol Smith established SVCC and served faithfully as Senior Pastors for over 3 decades before passing the baton to new leadership. They remain Pastors Emeritus.

Our values are simple: We are Gospel Centered and Mission Focused. Our purpose as a church is to simply "Love God and Love People". We get that purpose from the words of Jesus in Matthew 22 where Jesus was asked,

“Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?” Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.”

We realize that Jesus has made it simple for us. However, putting simple words into action can be easier said than done. It takes a nurturing community to support those who are striving to follow Christ's words in this world. This is why South Valley Community Church exists: To proclaim the gospel and make disciples.
