Who We Are

We Are...

Covenant Church is a community of God’s people, called together to glorify Him by serving each other and reaching to those outside of Christ. We are committed to:

Worship
We seek to worship God through the reading & preaching of the Bible, the sacraments of Baptism and the Lord's Supper, as well as corporate confession, thanksgiving, and adoration through prayer and song. Read more...               

Community
We seek to grow in love for one another, learn how to live as children of God in our homes and work-places, and be equipped to share the hope of the gospel. Read more...

Outreach
We seek to communicate the Good News about Jesus Christ to a hurting world through proclamation (word ministry) and service (deed ministry), within local, national, and global contexts. Read more...

A Few Things That Define Us...

Biblical

We are committed to the full authority of the Word of God in all that we believe and do. We believe the Bible is inerrant (without error), because it is infallible (written by God's inspiration). When you come to Covenant Church, you can be confident that the preaching and teaching you hear will be clearly and directly based on the truths of the Bible. 

Confessional

Because the Bible has been understood differently by many churches, the leaders at our church have studied and committed themselves to a specific understanding of what the Bible teaches, which is summarized in the Westminster Confession of Faith and its Shorter and Larger Catechisms. The confession does not have its own authority, it is authoritative only as it truly presents what God has told us in the Bible. The Catechisms are condensed presentations of the Confession written in a question & answer format. You can read the Westminster Confession and the Catechisms here.

Presbyterian

Covenant Church is led by a group of men called Elders, who are called by the Holy Spirit and recognized by God's people through a vote of the congregation. We believe this form of church government is taught in the Bible (cf. Acts 20:17-31, Titus 1:5-9). "Presbyterianism" comes from the Greek word for elder (presbuteros). While Elders are the primary leaders of the church, our church also has Deacons. Deacons lead the church in showing mercy to people among us and around us with physical needs (cf. Acts 6:1-7, 1 Timothy 3:8-13).

We also believe the Bible teaches that churches should be connected to other churches (cf. Acts 15). For this reason we are part of a denomination called the Orthodox Presbyterian Church (OPC). Our church leaders regularly meet with other church leaders in this denomination for prayer, accountability, and to decide larger questions of doctrine, pastoral training, or discipline. Our denominational website is here, and here is a booklet with more information about who the OPC is.
