Continuing The Work in God's Grace!
Since our 10/10/10 launch date over two years ago, our worship celebration before our Lord begins at 10 AM every Sunday Morning. We tried an 11 AM service a few times and went back to the original plan.
Early in 2010, a group of commited believers, with a heart for the Lord and a desire to reach Petaluma with the gospel of Jesus Christ, began to lay a foundation for the Sovereign Grace Community Church. During this time, God has been blessing the new ministry of SGCC in profound ways and we are excited about what God is going to do in this work
By His Grace and for His Glory!
We have a passion to be a Church that takes seriously and joyfully the call to love the Lord Jesus Christ with all that we are and to love others in His Name through telling others about Jesus and the building up of believers into the fullness of Christ. We are called to be: Worshippers of the Lord,
Witnesses of the Gospel and Spirit-empowered
Workers for His glory.
To accomplish this endeavor requires us as a Church, under the sovereignty of the Lord and by the power of the Holy Spirit, to be committed to the Great Commission (Matt. 28:18-20)and to have a zeal to be missional, baptistic and confessional.
We are affiliated with the Southern Baptist Convention .
Never heard of Sovereign Grace Baptist Churches? They have a rich history
Our church, though lacking in the fanfare of most larger Southern Baptist churches, nevertheless shares their strong interest in evangelism. We do believe in a Sovereign God who grants repentance, but we also take very seriously his command to go, teach and make disciples (Matthew 28:18). Because of God's sovereignty, we do pray diligently for true biblical conversions. However, we also understand the truth of Romans 10:16 "How are they to believe on him of whom they have never heard?"
Churches with a sovereign grace understanding of salvation have sometimes been considered complacent toward evangelism and exclusive. Nothing could be further from our goals. We are ardently convinced of both the importance evangelism and the existence of a real, literal, eternal hell. It is because our doctrine of hell is so inflexible that we wouldn't want even our worst enemy to go there, and will try our best to prevent such an end.
In the words of reknown Baptist Preacher Charles Spurgeon, "If sinners be damned, at least let them leap to Hell over our dead bodies. And if they perish, let them perish with our arms wrapped about their knees, imploring them to stay. If Hell must be filled, let it be filled in the teeth of our exertions, and let not one go unwarned and unprayed for."
