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

Our Mission

“We exist to love God, love people, and make disciples of Jesus Christ.”


We Exist to Love God

Jesus Christ is the greatest treasure anyone can ever know. Treasuring God is made possible through the gospel by which we are adopted into God’s family, saved from our sin, and brought into fellowship with God through the Holy Spirit. This is why we treasure the gospel. It restores our relationship with God!

We Exist to Love People

Once we know Jesus, we get to share the good news of his salvation with people who don’t know him. Evangelism is every believer’s opportunity and responsibility to proclaim that we can be forgiven and accepted by a holy God through the person and work of Jesus Christ.



We Exist to Make Disciples

The church is made up of people growing together in community. Mature Christians display the fruit of the Spirit, actively serve in the church, and help one another grow in grace. This growth is made possible because of the glorious gospel we treasure and proclaim.

Here's What We Value as a Church

The core values of any organization reflects who it is and what it believes. At Sovereign Grace Church of Sydney, we have seven core values we share with the churches of Sovereign Grace Churches.


It’s all about Jesus. From beginning to end, the Bible points us to the amazing reality that God has been merciful to sinners by sending Jesus. We want to display God’s glory by celebrating, proclaiming, and living the gospel through the power of the Holy Spirit.


Based on the Scriptures alone, we believe that salvation is by grace alone, through faith alone, in Christ alone, for the glory of God alone. God has graciously chosen a people from every tribe, tongue, and nation. We are glad recipients of his marvelous grace.


To do what Jesus has commanded us to do, we need power. Thankfully, God himself provides this power through the Holy Spirit who lives in every believer. The Holy Spirit empowers us for life and mission and gives supernatural gifts to build up the church, just as he did in the book of Acts.


Men and women, while different, are both created in the image of God to display the glory of God by reflecting the relationships of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit and of Christ to the church. According to God’s good design, men and women play distinct, but complementary, roles in the church and the home.


Jesus Christ reigns as head over the church, and he gives his church elders (pastors) to govern and lead under his authority. We believe that men, qualified by both character and gifting, are to serve as elders by loving God’s people.


In the Bible, we see the importance of interdependence among God’s churches. At Sovereign Grace Church, Wahroonga, we seek to express a similar interdependence with other Sovereign Grace churches throughout the world, through our common fellowship, mission, and governance. This allows us to do far more together than we ever could alone.


We believe Jesus has called the whole church to be on mission until the day that he returns, and so God's mission is not an extra-curricular activity to us, but a lens through which we see all of our lives.
