We seek to worship God, tell others about Jesus Christ, nurture new believers and grow together in the knowledge and love of our Savior.
What We Believe
The Centrality of the Word of God.
We believe that the Bible is the only perfect rule for faith, teaching and conduct. We believe one is either shaped by the Word of God or by the world.
The Necessity of New Birth
John 3:3 states that “Unless one is born anew, he cannot see the kingdom of God.” (Heaven) We believe that new birth is necessary for entrance into heaven. New birth means recognizing our need for a Savior, repenting of our sin, and inviting Him to be Lord of our lives.
The Church as a Fellowship of Believers
We believe that the church should be a place of fellowship for common believers. Membership is a confession of faith in Jesus Christ as Lord. It is open to all believers. We do not give considerations or preferences regarding class, race, education, wealth, etc. We do however seek to draw each one into a knowledge of Jesus.
The Ministry of the Holy Spirit
We believe that the Word and Spirit are inseparable. The Holy Spirit is alive and active, “blowing where it chooses.” (John 3:8) We believe that the Holy Spirit gives all believers spiritual gifts. These gifts are not given to benefit the individual but to benefit all.
The Reality of Freedom in Christ
Christ delivers us from the power of sin. He move us by grace into a relationship of freedom with Him. This freedom allows for differences of opinion in matters of doctrine and practice, as long as we are still following the Biblical standards.
A Commitment the the Whole Mission of the Church
We hold to Matthew 22:37-39, the greatest commandment. “Love the Lord your God with all your heart, soul, and mind … Love your neighbor as yourself.” Covenanters, once known as “Mission Friends”, have always been focused on missions. We remain friends committed to seeking the lost and helping them find Christ. We believe this can happen through befriending others in acts of generosity and compassion.
