what we believe

 

WE BELIEVE
We seek to form and nurture communities that are deeply committed to Jesus Christ and passionately engaged in Christ’s mission in the world. The purpose of Covenant affirmations is to make clear the values and principles that have guided the Evangelical Covenant Church since its founding in 1885.

For Covenant people, our essential beliefs are summed up in what we call Covenant affirmations:
• We affirm the centrality of the word of God.
• We affirm the necessity of the new birth.
• We affirm a commitment to the whole mission of the Church.
• We affirm the Church as a fellowship of believers.
• We affirm a conscious dependence on the Holy Spirit.
• We affirm the reality of freedom in Christ.
• “Do you confess Jesus Christ as your Savior and promise
    to follow him as Lord?”
• “Do you accept the Holy Scriptures, the Old and

    New Testaments, as the word of God and the only perfect rule

     for faith, doctrine, and conduct?”
