History

Sovereign Grace Churches began with a conviction: churches are stronger together.

In the 1970s a group of young believers, reading their Bibles with fresh eyes, were captured by the New Testament vision of interdependent congregations. They saw churches existing not in distant association but in close and vital partnership with one another. This vision spread to a handful of churches, then to new churches established across the U.S. Eventually churches outside the U.S. joined the movement and a global family of churches was born.

This family of churches grew both in size and depth. A commitment to shared theological convictions was matched to a commitment to gospel-centrality in life and ministry. Experience strengthened the union. Relationships matured. This family of churches renewed their commitment to one another and their common mission. Today Sovereign Grace Churches continues with the same fundamental conviction: churches are stronger together.
