Sovereign Grace Church (SGC) exists to glorify God through sharing the gospel, making disciples, building the local church, serving parents and the next generation, and supporting Sovereign Grace® churches as we anticipate Jesus’ return.

The Bible is at the core of our union because we believe the Word of God is the only infallible rule of faith and practice. We are also committed and accountable to a particular statement of faith that summarizes the important doctrines of Holy Scripture that affect the doctrine, conduct, and witness of our church.

Per our statement of faith, we confess the great orthodox Christian doctrines of the Trinity and the Incarnation of Christ as stated in the Nicene and Chalcedonian creeds. We also make explicit what is fundamental to our doctrinal commitment: the gospel of Jesus Christ, which is the primary passion and driving force for congregational life, worship, and outreach. Beyond that, we affirm the glorious sovereignty of God over all things (including the redemption of sinners), the practice of believer's baptism, God's distinct and complementary purposes for men and women, and the ongoing ministry of the Holy Spirit in the church.

SGC elders claim our statement of faith as a guide for preaching and teaching as a faithful expression of biblical doctrine. As a result, it helps protect our local church from false teaching as we grow in sound doctrine and worship. This statement ultimately seeks to serve the doxological goal of all biblical truth—to deepen our faith, love, and worship of God, for His eternal glory.

Our church is privileged to be part of Sovereign Grace Churches, a community of churches that seek to plant and strengthen churches in the United States and all over the world. Our Statement of Faith is shared among these churches. To read our Statement of Faith in its entirety, click here
