We are a confessional community
Sovereign Grace Churches is a confessional family of churches. At the heart of our union is the truth of God’s Word that we believe, cherish, and proclaim together. While the Bible is our only infallible rule of faith and practice, we are also committed—and accountable—to a specific statement of faith that represents a summary of the teaching of Holy Scripture on key points of doctrine essential to the beliefs, conduct, and witness of our churches.
A brief summary
Our statement of faith stands firmly within historic Christian orthodoxy, confessing the great doctrines of the Trinity and the incarnation of Christ as set forth in the Nicene and Chalcedonian creeds. Our statement of faith also makes explicit what is foundational to our doctrinal commitments—the gospel of Jesus Christ, the primary passion and the driving influence in our church's common life, worship, and outreach. Beyond this, our statement of faith affirms the glorious sovereignty of God over all things, including the redemption of sinners, our practice of credobaptism, our celebration of God’s distinct, complementary purposes for men and women, and our continuationist convictions regarding the Spirit’s ongoing ministry in the church.
