A covenant partner is who you become when you are ready to call Saginaw Valley Community Church your home church. We want you to stay planted in a place that will give you the proper spiritual and natural growth necessary for your walk as a Christian.
Passion for God leads us to seek after Him with desperate hearts, knowing only in Him can we become complete.
Love for people leads us to become an apostolic center, to reach the lost, bring them to Christ, then disciple and equip them for release into the work of the ministry.
Our passion for God leads us to depend upon the Holy Spirit’s power and His ministry to draw us into intimacy with our Father through praise, worship and the power of His Word to enable us to become a house of prayer and a light to the community.
Our love for people brings a desire to strengthen marriages, encourage families and raise up all ages from the youngest to the eldest to become mighty warriors of God. We have a strong mission’s outreach, both locally and throughout the world, and we seek to partner with like-minded churches in our region to bring about His kingdom and His will.
