Who we are Print

What does the Covenant Church believe?

On one level, the answer is quite simple. When new members join a Covenant church, they are asked two questions about belief: ‚ Do you confess Jesus Christ as your Savior and promise to follow him as Lord?‚  and ‚ 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?‚ They are then asked if they intend to live as faithful followers of Christ and members of the church and denomination
