About Us

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

Our Mission

“We exist to glorify God by making disciples through treasuring, living, and proclaiming the gospel of Jesus Christ.”


Glorify God

This is every living creature’s ultimate purpose on this earth. It’s why God made us—to glorify Him. What does that mean? It means that everything we are and everything we do should point to God—His worth, power, holiness, goodness, mercy, and grace.

Make Disciples

A disciple is one who follows. We follow Christ. But our walk is not just about us. Jesus commands us to “go and make disciples”. That means as we follow Christ, we also help others follow Christ.



Proclaim the Gospel

The “gospel” is the good news that Jesus saves sinners. The most valuable thing we have been given is salvation through Jesus Christ. The gospel is central in making disciples because Jesus is the only way of salvation. Nothing in life is more precious, more important, or more vital than Jesus. We want to live everyday life with the gospel central. We make disciples by spreading the good news that we are saved by grace alone, through faith alone, in Christ alone. We preach it on Sundays, teach it to our kids, and share it with our neighbors.

Here's What We Value as a Church

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


We believe that the gospel—the good news of God’s saving activity in Jesus Christ—is the pinnacle of His redemptive acts, the center of the Bible’s story, and the essential message for our faith, life, and witness. We are committed to preaching the gospel, singing the gospel, praying the gospel, counseling out of the gospel, and building our churches upon the gospel. The perfect life, substitutionary death, victorious resurrection, and glorious ascension of Jesus Christ is our ultimate hope.


Scripture presents the all-glorious, triune God as the source and end of all things, sovereignly working all things according to His will. At the center of God’s purposes in the world is the exaltation of His glory through the redemption of sinners. To this end, we believe that God sovereignly chooses men and women to be saved in order to display His immeasurable grace and glory. God’s sovereign grace in salvation humbles us, fills us with gratitude, and compels us to worship Him and share the message of His grace to all people.


We believe the Holy Spirit desires to continually fill each believer with increased power for Christian life and witness, including the giving of His supernatural gifts for the building up of the church and for various works of ministry in the world. We are eager to pursue God’s active presence in all its breadth, that Christ may be magnified in our lives, in the church, and among the nations.


We believe it was God’s glorious plan to create men and women in His image, giving them equal dignity and value in His sight, while appointing differing and complementary roles for them within the home and the church. Because these roles give different expressions to God’s image in humanity, they should be valued and pursued in joy and faith. As the redeemed community of God, the church has a unique opportunity and responsibility to celebrate this complementarity, to contend for it against cultural hostility, and to protect it from sinful distortions.


Jesus Christ reigns as head over His church, and He gives to His church elders (or pastors) to govern and lead local churches under His authority. We believe that men, qualified by both character and gifting, are to serve as elders, shepherding God’s people as under-shepherds of Christ.


Our gospel-centrality entails not only treasuring the gospel personally but sharing it passionately. The risen Christ commissioned His church to make disciples of all nations. We are eager to pursue this mission, relying fully on the Holy Spirit, to see the gospel proclaimed and churches planted throughout the world, that God may be glorified among every tribe, language, people, and nation.


We enjoy a rich relationship with churches in the Chaska area and the broader United States. Our partnerships help us to care for our members and advance the gospel.

Sovereign Grace churches are built on strong commitments, faithful theological convictions, and generous support.
