Welcome

Welcome to Sovereign Grace Fellowship. We are a Christian fellowship with a mission of proclaiming the gospel to the glory of God and holding true to Reformed beliefs of the Christian faith.

We affirm the apostolic doctrines set forth in the Bible and given creedal formulation by the great ecumenical councils of the ancient church on such cardinal articles of the Christian faith such as the Trinity, the atonement, justification by faith, the virgin birth and the bodily resurrection of Jesus, his miracles and the inspiration of Holy Scripture.

What We Believe

The Bible

We believe the Bible, made up of 66 books, is the infallible, inerrant, and inspired Word of God.1 Thessalonians 2:132 Timothy 3:15–17; and 2 Peter 1:20–21.

The Trinity

We affirm in the Godhead, there is a unity of three distinct yet fully divine persons: The Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. We affirm the three are one true, eternal God, the same in substance, equal in power and glory.

God

God is a Spirit. He is infinite, eternal, and immutable in His being, wisdom, power, holiness, justice, goodness, and truth. He is fully omniscient, omnipotent, and omnipresent. Deuteronomy 6:4, Isaiah 6:3, Hebrews 6:17, 1Timothy 1:17, John 4:24, Revelation 4:8

Jesus Christ

Jesus is fully God and fully man. His divine and human nature are inseparably united in one divine person without confusion, mixture, separation, or division.  The attributes of each nature is retained. In the incarnation, Jesus was born of the Virgin Mary, lived a perfect life among us, was crucified, dead, and buried, rose on the third day, ascended to heaven, and will come again in glory and judgment. He is the only Mediator between God and man. John 1:1–314; Philippians 2:5-8Hebrews 1:1–3; and 1 John 5:11–12.

The Holy Spirit

The Holy Spirit is co-equal and co-eternal with the Father and the Son. He dwells in the hearts of believers, effecting their regeneration monergistically and operating in their sanctification synergistically. John 14:26Acts 1:581 Corinthians 6:19–20; and Ephesians 1:13–14.

Depravity of Man

God created man−male and female− in His own image.  Adam sinned and as a result, all people have fell and were infected by the consequence of Adam’s sin making all of humanity unable and unwilling to please God making us spiritually dead. Apart from the grace of God through Christ, the whole of the human race is condemned to judgement before God. Genesis 3Jeremiah 17:9; and Romans 3:10–18235:12.

Salvation 

Fallen humans are unable to save themselves, therefore God, according to His own sovereign mercy, acts to saves sinners by grace through faith. God sent Jesus Christ to live a perfect life and die in the place of sinners to bring them to salvation through. By believing that Christ died for their sins, a person is forgiven and declared righteous by God unto eternal life with God. See John 3:16Romans 10:9–101 Corinthians 15:1–5; and Ephesians 1:4–122:8–9

The Church

The church is the family of God which exists to proclaim God’s truth, administer the ordinances, and lead believers to growth and maturity. Believers are to be faithful membership in a local congregation for the purpose of mutual encouragement and spiritual growth. A healthy church is marked by God-glorifying worship, evangelism and disciple-making

Acts 2:41–47Philippians 2:1–4; and Hebrews 10:24–25.

The Return Of Christ

We believe Christ will return one day to consummate God’s work of salvation. There will be rewards for believers and judgement and punishment for unbelievers

1 Thessalonians 4:13–5:11; 2 Thessalonians 2:1–12; Hebrews 9:28; and Revelation 19:11–16.

The Resurrection of The Dead

We believe in the resurrection of the dead. One day, all the dead will be resurrected when Christ returns. Believers will resurrect to eternal communion with God and unbelievers to everlasting separation from God in eternal punishment.  John 11:23–27; 1 Corinthians 15:51–57; 1 Thessalonians 4:13–18; and Revelation 20:4–21:5.
