Passage: John 1:46 & Hebrews 12:2

‘Come and See’

…Nathanael said unto him, ‘Can there any good thing come out of Nazareth?’ Philip saith unto him, ‘Come and see.’

(JOHN 1:46)

You are invited to Sovereign Grace Church. We are a Sovereign Grace fellowship. Our purpose for meeting is to worship the Lord Jesus Christ. ‘We believe Christ and Him Crucified’ is not merely a slogan, it is the sum and substance of all we say and do. He is all and in all. Here is what we believe:

CHRIST ALONE Christ is the Gospel. It is all about Him. (ROMANS 1:1-3). He is all in the Scriptures; all to God, all in salvation, and all to every believer. Christ’s atonement was effectual for His people. All who bow to the Lordship of Christ are saved (JOHN 17:1,2).

THE SCRIPTURES ALONE The Bible is the Word of God (1 TIMOTHY 3:16). All scripture is given by inspiration of God. It contains no contradiction whatsoever. We do not derive our doctrine from men or denominations. The Bible is our rule of our faith and practice — “…if they speak not according to this Word, it is because there is no light in them” (ISAIAH 8:20).

GRACE ALONE The electing grace of God begins salvation, and God’s glorification is the finishing of His salvation. Salvation is not what you do for God, but what God does for you. No part of salvation can be ascribed to man. To give any part of salvation to the religious efforts, good works, or free will of man is to deny salvation by GRACE (EPHESIANS 2:8-10, HEBREWS 12:2).

FAITH ALONE Christ and His salvation is not received by doing, but by believing. This is the work of God, that ye believe on Him whom he hath sent. Anyone who trusts Christ for salvation will be saved. “The just shall live by faith” (ROMANS 1:17).
