Covenant Church glorifies God by introducing people to Jesus Christ in a way that engages them and then transforms them into devoted followers of Christ who in turn participate in introducing others to Jesus Christ.
Building a Community to Reach a Community
So That Together We Enjoy & Share the Freedom of Jesus!
We care about the good news of Jesus Christ supremely. The gospel includes:
Events – the historical life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ for our sake.
Explanation – our acceptance before God through Christ alone, by faith alone, through God’s grace alone, taught truthfully by the Bible alone, to God’s glory alone
Enticement – God’s work on our behalf in Christ is embraced by faith and repentance
Eternity – Christ brings us back to God, to know forgiveness, acceptance and communion with God for now and forever
STATEMENT OF FAITH
Covenant Church is affiliated with the Presbyterian Church in America (PCA), a nationwide fellowship of churches committed to the authority of the Bible. Being part of the PCA is an asset that links Covenant together with the international missions efforts, church planting, and provides accountability and resources to keep Covenant biblically faithful.
We Believe in…
The God of the Bible as a Triune God -Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, each Person equal in power and glory, existing in eternal community.
The inspiration, inerrancy and authority of the Bible as the written Word of God.
The sinfulness of all men and women and their resulting inability to seek out or please God by their own efforts.
The death of the unique Son of God, the Lord Jesus Christ, as an atoning sacrifice for us. We believe that there is no salvation for anyone apart from faith in him.
The bodily resurrection of Jesus Christ from the grave.
The person and work of the Holy Spirit in drawing people to Christ, enabling them to believe on him, and strengthening them to live godly lives.
The necessity for Christians to follow Jesus Christ in personal and often costly discipleship.
The church as a fellowship of born again persons, committed to helping one another grow in their Christian lives.
The importance of Christians reaching into all the world to call people to faith in Christ and helping influence their world, both near and farther away, for good.
The return of Jesus Christ to judge all persons and to take those who have trusted him to heaven.
WHAT IT MEANS FOR US
God is bigger, better, closer and greater than we could ever imagine.
The Bible is the only book which introduces us to the Creator and is our User’s guide for life in His creation.
We are the living self-portrait in God's art gallery made to know God and show God to others. However, our human tendency is to refuse to accept God as great or to listen to God’s book as true, and because of that we cut ourselves off from God, the Giver of life. We do not know God and cannot show God.
Jesus is God and he came to rescue us. He alone knew God, showed God and told us about God. He died to bring us back to God. God brought him back to life forever.
Through his Holy Spirit, God lives in and through us now. The Spirit makes us see our need for Jesus and how our needs are met in him. Listening to God, believing in Jesus, we are once again able to know God and ‘show and tell’ him to others.
Grace is the only way to have a relationship with God. He pursues us. We do not earn his approval.
Faith in the Lord Jesus Christ is the only way to grow in our relationship with God. The key to life is not trying harder but trusting more.
Jesus is coming again. Heaven and hell are real places. Death is a beginning, not the end.
VISION AND VALUES
"Building a community to reach a community so that together we enjoy and share the freedom of Jesus!"
We are committed to being...

Relevant: With grace and in love, we point people to the Bible, giving straight answers to life’s most pressing questions.
Accessible: We strive to remove every difficulty or excuse that might keep people from Christ.
Relational: We want to be a place where people know and are known.
Transformational: We seek change that is a by-product of the gospel - change that alters every aspect of life.
