what we Afirm

The centrality of the word of God.

“The holy scripture, the old and the new testament, is the Word of God and the only perfect rule for faith, doctrine, and conduct."


The necessity of the new birth.

“By the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, God conquered sin, death, and the devil, offering forgiveness for sin and assuring eternal life for those who follow Christ.”


A commitment to the whole mission of the Church.

"The Covenant Church, rooted in historic Christianity, affirms one God as Father, son, and holy spirit. the holy spirit continues the creative work of the Father and the redeeming work of the son within the life of the church. it is for this reason the Covenant Church has emphasized the continuing work of the spirit. "


The Church as a fellowship of believers.

"The Church is a communion or fellowship of believers, characterized by mutual participation in and sharing of the new life in Christ."


A conscious dependence on the Holy Spirit.

"The Covenant Church, rooted in historic Christianity, affirms one God as Father, son, and holy spirit. the holy spirit continues the creative work of the Father and the redeeming work of the son within the life of the church. it is for this reason the Covenant Church has emphasized the continuing work of the spirit. "


The reality of freedom in Christ.

"The centrality of the word of God, the necessity of the new birth, a commitment to the whole mission of the church, the church as a fellowship of believers, and a conscious dependence of the holy spirit form the parameters in which freedom is experienced. here followers of Christ find the security to offer freedom to one another on issues that might otherwise divide."
