Sugar Run Valley Baptist Church is
“a Bible-believing church with a heart for people”.
We believe the Bible is the inspired, inerrant, authoritative Word of God, which has the instruction needed by people of all ages, backgrounds, and life circumstances. Since Jesus is the only way to Heaven, we strive to make clear the Gospel message of His death, burial, and resurrection. Those who visit SRVBC will find a group of Christians united in their desire to properly represent Jesus Christ and to reach out to others. We also have a healthy missionary outreach to many other countries through our Faith Promise giving to missions.
