ABOUT US

Our mission and our values demonstrate who we are and flow from what we believe.

Our Mission

“We exist to glorify God through the proclamation and demonstration of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.”

1

Glorify God

We were created for God's glory. Fulfilling this purpose is possible because God has redeemed us, adopted us and is sanctifying us in Jesus Christ. Now restored to a glorious God, we can reflect His glory to the world around us.

2

Proclaim the Gospel

Through the gospel, our sins are forgiven, and our salvation is sure. Now that we know Jesus, one way we treasure him is by passionately sharing who he is and what he has done for our forgiveness and salvation.

3

Demonstrate the Gospel

The Church is a group of people forgiven by God and filled with the Holy Spirit. The Spirit empowers us to live for and serve Jesus in ways that reflect the grace of the gospel and preach the power of the gospel in everyday, ordinary life.

Our Core Values

The core values of any organization reflect who they are and what they believe. At Sovereign Grace Church, we share common core values with the churches of Sovereign Grace Churches.

Gospel-Centered

From beginning to end, and everywhere in between, it's about Jesus. We believe that the gospel—the good news of God’s saving activity in Jesus Christ—is the pinnacle of His redemptive acts, the center of the Bible’s story, and the essential message for our faith, life, and witness. We are committed to preaching the gospel, singing the gospel, praying the gospel, and building our churches upon the gospel.

Reformed

Scripture presents the all-glorious, triune God as the source and end of all things, sovereignly working all things according to His will. At the center of God’s purposes in the world is the exaltation of His glory through the redemption of sinners. To this end, we believe that God sovereignly chooses men and women to be saved in order to display His immeasurable grace and glory.

Continuationist

To proclaim and demonstrate the gospel, we need power. We believe the Holy Spirit continually fills each believer with power for Christian life and witness, including the giving of His supernatural gifts for the building up of the church and for various works of ministry in the world. We are eager to pursue God’s active presence in all its breadth, that Christ may be magnified in our lives, in the church, and among the nations.

Missional

Our gospel-centrality entails not only treasuring the gospel personally but sharing it passionately. Jesus commissioned His church to make disciples of all nations. We do this eagerly, relying entirely on the Holy Spirit through personal evangelism and our church planting partnership with other Sovereign Grace Churches.

Complementarian

We believe it was God’s glorious plan to create men and women in His image, giving them equal dignity and value in His sight, while appointing differing and complementary roles for them within the home and the church.

Pastor-Led

Jesus Christ reigns as head over His church, and He gives to His church pastors to govern and lead under His authority. We believe that men, qualified by both character and gifting, are to serve as pastors, shepherding God’s people as under-shepherds
of Christ.

Partnerships

We enjoy a rich relationship with churches in the Tucson area and the broader United States. We believe that the unity for which Jesus prayed among His people should find concrete expression among believers and churches. We seek to express a similar interdependence through our common fellowship, mission, and governance with other Sovereign Grace Churches, allowing us to do more than we could ever do alone.
