"God's household, having been built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Christ Jesus Himself being the corner stone..."
- Eph. 2:19-20

Some churches pride themselves to be the only true church of Jesus Christ. We do not hold to such an unbiblical notion. Although we recognized that there are many false and apostate churches, yet there are also many true local churches of the Lord Jesus Christ. There is only one universal church, yet this consist of all true local churches which Christ purchased with His own blood (Acts 20:28).

The Sovereign Grace Bible Church of Cebu is an autonomous church ruled by the risen Christ and the Holy Spirit through the apostolic teachings preserved for us completely in the Bible.

However, we seek to be in fellowship with all true local churches. Moreover, as far as a good conscience permits, we also seek to engage in some cooperative efforts with other true local churches.

As a local church, our task is to fulfill what Christ has commissioned the church to do in the ability He promised to supply. This includes:
  1. The worship of God;
  2. The preservation and propagation of God's Word;
  3. The nurture of God's people;
  4. The work of benevolence amongst God's people;
  5. The discipline of the unruly amongst God's people;
  6. The observance of the covenantal signs
    - Baptism & the Lord's Supper; and
  7. Prayer.

When the church gathers for worship, we come into the very special presence of God to do what He commands us in His Word to do in worship. Therefore, we seek to avoid a "party atmosphere" in worship but seek to promote a climate of joyful reverence throught the enabling of the Holy Spirit.

As New Covenant priest and priestesses, and on the basis of Christ's all-sufficient sacrifice for all the sins of all His people in Calvary, we bring to God the spiritual sacrifices He commands us to bring through Christ. These spiritual sacrifices include a consecrated life, a broken and a contrite heart, praise and thanksgiving, a portion of our substance, and the insense of prayer. Moreover, we also come to receive faithful instructions and admonitions from God's Word through His appointed messengers.
