The hope of the world is Jesus Christ! Therefore, we exist to model and multiply Compassionate Christian Community that shapes disciples who transform the world.
Closeness with God- experiencing the presence and power of the Holy Spirit in worship and in our everyday lives.
Christ-likeness- following the way and works of Jesus: doing what Jesus is doing, loving what Jesus is loving, and going where Jesus is going.
Compassionate Outreach- joining God in making things right in our broken world.
Caring Community- living in authentic connection and concern for one another.
Courageous Prayer- seeking God's wisdom, cooperating with His Spirit, and engaging spiritual opposition with confidence, humility and expectancy.
What is a Covenant Church?
WHAT WE BELIEVE
You've come into Christ Church as a visitor. You look left and right and think, "These people seem pretty normal." Throughout the service you watch people sing, pray, listen and respond. All the while you may be asking, "So what is this place? What's a Covenant church anyway?"
The Evangelical Covenant Church is a rapidly growing multi-ethnic denomination in the United States and Canada with ministries on five continents of the world. The ECC values the Bible as the word of God, the gift of God’s grace and ever-deepening spiritual life that comes through a faith with Jesus Christ, the importance of extending God’s love and compassion to a hurting world, and the strength that comes from unity within diversity.
At Christ Church, we seek to focus on Jesus Christ. Our core beliefs are in keeping with the truths of the historical Christian faith. The Bible is the Word of God, essential to our teaching and the way we pattern our lives.
That, in a nutshell, is a Covenant church. In God's name, we say, "Welcome!"
