Sovereign Grace Baptist Church of Silicon Valley, assembling in San Jose, CA., was organized on the Lord's Day, June 19, 1994, with 20 members as an assembly of regularly-baptized believers, covenanting together in the context of the scriptures, as delineated in the church covenant, to glorify God and to serve him after the inspired pattern of the new testament church. The First and Second London Baptist Confessions of Faith were taken as the general expression of the assembly‚Äôs doctrinal convictions, identifying the church with the biblical and historic faith of the Regular or Particular Baptists, commonly called "Calvinistic". The church then being scripturally and duly constituted, extended a unanimous call to Dr. William R. Downing to be their Pastor. The call was willingly and humbly accepted.
By the Grace and Glory of God SermonAudio has gone beyond the professional and the elegant. It has afforded opportunity for teaching, preaching and evangelism for churches great and small. Each are able to share those vital and ever necessary sermons to family, friends and workers, as well as fellow Christians through out the world. We have been blessed and encouraged by people from all over the US, and abroad, who have come to our church to hear the preaching of the word of God, many saying that they found us on SermonAudio. We thank God for his kindness upon you all, and we thank you for your labors in providing this tremendous tool and opportunity to spread the Truth and declare the Glorious Word of God.
