What We Believe

Sovereign Grace Baptist Church is an independent bible believing Baptist Church. We hold to essential doctrines found in the scripture. These essential doctrines are taught and held as truth from our God and essential for practical Christian living.

We believe

  • The Bible is the all-sufficient, certain, and infallible Word of God.
  • There is but one, and only one, true and living God. He is self-existent and infinite in His being and perfections.
  • Three divine Persons constitute the Godhead, the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. They are one in substance and in power. Each is fully God and yet the Godhead is one and indivisible.
  • Before the foundation of the world, God’s eternal, immutable purpose, moved Him to choose (or to elect), in Christ, certain of mankind to everlasting glory.
  • Man, willfully broke the law of God and all became dead in sin, all men become wholly inclined to all evil and sin disables them.
  • Jesus Christ is only begotten Son of God the Father and the mediator between God and man. He is Prophet, Priest, King, Head and Savior of His church.
  • All who truly believe in the Lord Jesus Christ and love Him in sincerity, may in this life be certainly assured that they are in a state of grace.
  • Jesus Christ will come again for His church and bring them into His kingdom a literal new heaven and new earth.
  • God has appointed a day of judgement and the wicked, who do not know God and who do not obey the gospel of Jesus Christ, will be relegated to everlasting torments and banished from the presence of the Lord and from the glory of His power.
