History: South Valley Baptist Church (SVBC) started in Riverton, Utah as a small Bible Study in 1992. We are affiliated with the Southern Baptist Convention (SBC), which is an association of churches working together to spread the Gospel throughout the world. The SBC does not meet the definition of a denomination with a hierarchy and national headquarters because we believe the local church should make decisions based on their leadership and church direction (See Why Do Church?) If you would like to know more, please Contact Us.
What We Believe does not originate from a man or a church council, but our authority comes from the same place our faith comes from ... God's Word. "So then faith [cometh] by hearing, and hearing by the word of God." (Romans 10:17)
