Sovereign Grace Church exists to spread the joy of Jesus in Orange and beyond.
Sovereign Grace Church of Orange began in a living room in Tustin in 2006. A small group of believers in Orange County were relating to our sister church in Pasadena with the hope of establishing a gospel-proclaiming church in Orange County. Over the next few years, God made their hope a reality.
Pastor Mike Davis was sent by the Pasadena church in 2006 and Pastor Eric Turbedsky came from a partner church in San Diego in 2009 to officially plant the church. After meeting in Irvine for the first few years, the pastoral team led the church to relocate to Old Towne Orange on Easter Sunday 2012. We’ve been here ever since and we hope to be here long into the future.
Though every church shares the essentials of the Christian faith in common, each local church has distinct characteristics, a culture. By God's grace, this is who we are and intend to be in the future. We describe our culture with four words: joyful, generous, ordinary, neighbors.
God has made us glad. The good news that He has redeemed us through the sacrifice of Jesus Christ is a source of everlasting joy. Joy fuels our life in Christ. In our church, it can be seen in our passionate singing, our smiling faces as we greet one another on Sundays, and our cheerful acts of service.
God has been good to us. Everything we have we received from Him, so we give back generously for His sake. This includes our finances, our time, our energy, and our affections. We give so that our joy in Him would spread to others.
God uses our ordinary efforts for His extraordinary purposes. We’re not trying to be the next best thing. We're simply doing what Christians have done for the last 2,000 years. We worship together. We pray together. We grow together. We serve God together.
God has placed us in a neighborhood and called us to be good neighbors. We feel a responsibility for those outside of our church. We seek to befriend them. We show them mercy when needs arise. We invite them to join us in trusting and following Jesus.
The values of a church reflect who they are and what they believe. At Sovereign Grace Church of Orange, we are committed to the six values below.
