Our Core Values

We Value People

People matter to God

We believe people matter to God and therefore they matter to us. God demonstrated the high value He places on people when he gave His very best, his Son, to provide the gift of salvation. Covenant Community Church’s assignment is to get the message of this good news to the world so we can disciple people in a growing relationship with Jesus Christ to become effective witnesses throughout the world. (John 3:16, Romans 5:8, Luke 15:7, Luke 15:10)

We Value Application of Scripture

Teaching is for Life-Change

We believe the Bible is God’s Word to our world. Therefore, we must live and practice the life changing principles we discover. God gave us His Word in order to equip us and change us for His glory and benefit. (Psalm 1, James 1:22-25, Luke 6:46, Psalm 119:11)

We Value Authentic Community

Life change happens best in community groups

We believe real authenticity is best described as openness with others about our strengths and weaknesses. We will help people find their way from the large group (weekend worship) into relationally-authentic community groups. (Acts 2:44-47, Romans 7, Colossians 4:5)

We Value Relevance

Although our methods will change, our Message will not

We believe the Bible is the most relevant book ever written, and we seek to share its’ good news in our local environments. We will create appropriate environments for our children and youth as well as adults. (1 Corinthians 9:22, 2 Corinthians 11:2, 1 Chronicles 12:32)

We Value Service

Every member is a minister

We believe God has equipped every believer with gifts and passions so they can become effective witnesses for Jesus Christ. We will encourage everyone to use and develop their gifts and talents in service to our church, community and world. (1 Peter 4:10, Romans 12:6-8, 1Corinthians 12:4-7, Ephesians 4:11-13)
