Welcome to Sovereign Grace Church
Have you been searching for a place to worship in the Bismarck, North Dakota area where there is expositional preaching; a church that takes God's Word seriously along with biblical church government? Our desire is for God's people to receive sound biblical truth where they will grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. We are a people that believe in the power of the Gospel to change, shape and mold lives as God has well intended for us. Our heart as a church is to be ever reforming toward the goal of glorifying God and enjoying Him forever. We would love for you to come and share in the Word, and in prayer and in fellowship with us. Hope you enjoy the information and sermons on this site and that you will come and visit us soon.
Pastor Terry Moore
Join us as we learn what Genuine Fellowship is all about while we embark to have a better understanding of a biblical view of Christ, sin, obedience, love, righteousness, false doctrine, sound doctrine, and the certainty of eternal life. May the Lord Jesus Christ be glorified in our study of First, Second, and Third John.
Fellowship with God by Charles Spurgeon
"That which we have seen and heard declare we unto you, that ye also may have fellowship with us: and truly our fellowship is with the Father, and with his Son Jesus Christ."—1 John 1:3.
Fellowship with God was one of the richest privileges of unfallen man. The Lord God walked in the garden and talked with Adam as a man talketh with his friend. So long as he was willing and obedient, Adam ate the fat of the land, and among the rich dainties and "wines on the lees well refined," of which his soul was a partaker, we must number first and foremost, unbroken communion with God, his Father and his Friend. Sin, as it banished man from Eden, banished man from God, and from that time our face has been turned from the Most High, and his face has been turned from us;—we have hated God, and God has been angry with us every day. Christ came into the world to restore to us our lost patrimony. It was the great object of his wondrous sacrifice to put us into a position which should be equal and even superior to that which we occupied in Adam before the fall, and as he has already restored to us many things that we lost, so among the rest—fellowship with God. They who have by his grace believed, and have by the precious blood been washed, have peace with God through Jesus Christ our Lord, they are "no more strangers and foreigners, but fellow-citizens with the saints and of the household of God," and they have access with boldness into this grace wherein we stand. So they who are in the kingdom, and under the dispensation of the second Adam, have restored to them in all its fullness that fellowship which was lost to them by the sin and disobedience of their first federal head. John was among the number of those who had enjoyed this privilege with Christ in his flesh. He had been Christ's chosen companion, elect out of the elect to a choice and peculiar privilege. During the incarnation, he was one of the favored three who had enjoyed the closest intimacy with the Redeemer; he had seen Christ in his transfiguration, had witnessed the raising of the dead maid, had been with the Lord in the garden, and he had lingered with him even when the thrust was given after death, and the blood and water flowed from his pierced heart. John had the nearest, the dearest, the closest fellowship with Christ in the flesh. As he had laid his head upon Christ's bosom, so had he laid all his thoughts and all the emotions of his mind upon the heart's love and divine affection of his Lord and Master but Christ was gone; it was no more possible to hear his voice, to see him with eyes, or to handle him with hands, yet John had not lost his fellowship, though he knew him no more after the flesh, yet he knew him after a nobler sort. Nor was his fellowship less real, less close, less sweet, or less divine, than it had been when he had walked and talked with him, and had been privileged to eat and drink with him at that last sacred feast. John says, "Truly our fellowship is"—not was—"is with the Father, and with his Son Jesus Christ."

"We are the Bridegroom's friends, and we rejoice greatly in His joy, but we sigh and cry till we have found the chosen hearts in whom He will delight."
"The motive of the church is to glorify God. And the mission that does that is to win men and women to the Savior."
"To commune with God in prayer, in the Bible, and in the assembly of His people-these things will be the holy person’s principal enjoyments."
"It is by the mixture of counterfeit religion with true, not discerned and distinguished, that the devil has had his greatest advantage against the cause and kingdom of Christ."
