We believe that Sovereign Grace exists as a body of Christians who are in regular accountable fellowship, where God's word is rightly preached, and baptism and the Lord's Supper is rightly administered.
The word of God is what creates the people of God, and the ordinances mark us off as the people of God. We love each other by holding to meaningful church membership and the practice of church discipline. We are lead by a plurality of elders; who are biblcially qualified and called. We invite you to explore what we believe and how that has impacted our practice as a church.
Our distinctiveness is found in our foundational beliefs that were revived during the time of the Reformation. We hold the five pillars of the reformation and build our theology, focus on scripture and preaching from this perspective.
Sola Scriptura (“by Scripture alone”)
Sola Scriptura is the teaching that the Bible is the only inspired and authoritative Word of God, is the only source for Christian doctrine, and is accessible to all — that is, it is clearly understandable and self-interpreting.
Sola Fide (“by faith alone”)
Sola Fide is the teaching that justification is received by faith only, without any mixture of or need for good works, though saving faith is always evidenced by good works.
Sola Gratia (“by grace alone”)
Sola Gratia is the teaching that salvation comes by God’s grace or “unmerited favor” only — not as something merited by the sinner. This means that salvation is an unearned gift from God for Jesus’ sake.
Solus Christus (“Christ alone”)
Solus Christus is the teaching that Christ is the only mediator between God and man, and that there is salvation through no other means except Christ.
Soli Deo Gloria (“To God, alone, the glory”)
Soli Deo Gloria is the teaching that all glory is to God alone, since salvation is accomplished solely through His will and action — not only the gift of the all-sufficient atonement of Jesus on the cross but also the gift of faith in that atonement, created in the heart of the believer by the Holy Spirit. God is worthy of all praise and adoration.
