To Make & Mature Disciples of Jesus
What is Sovereign Grace Church about?
We are far from a perfect church but we do serve a perfect savior. As such, everything we do and are pivots on the gospel message of Jesus Christ. Though the New Testament hardly inclines toward neat, clean and tidy purpose statements, nonetheless we do gain clear direction from the Great Commission:
“Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.” Matthew 28:19-20
We exist to make and mature disciples of Jesus Christ, for the glory of God, by the power of the Spirit of God. "Make & Mature" for short.
Salvation is wholly the work of the Lord, but we commit to live in our community and influence the world with the gospel on our lips. Because there is no other message that can save mankind from eternal death, it is paramount for us to tell as many men, women, boys and girls about the gospel of Jesus that we can. Some will respond to the gospel with faith and repentance, while others will reject the message and remain unconverted. We believe in sharing the gospel indiscriminately with every one we can in the hopes that God makes some his followers.
Spiritually mature followers of Jesus Christ don’t just happen. While the work of salvation is the work of the Lord, Christians work in tandem with the Holy Spirit to grow and mature. We at Sovereign Grace Church take seriously the call to grow as followers of Jesus Christ, or to put in the language of Matthew 28, “to observe all that I (Jesus) have commanded you.” We seek to accomplish this in many ways: corporate worship, small groups, prayer meetings, Sunday school classes and many other venues.
