COVENANT PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH
"Committed to historic Reformed faith and practice, we are a local and regional congregation of the Presbyterian Church in America, which is a branch of the universal Church of Jesus Christ."
"Our mission as a congregation is to glorify God through biblical worship, discipleship, and evangelism at home and abroad."
"By principle and providence, we think the Lord calls us to be:
a model Reformed church in the PCA;
a leader in Word-centered, traditional worship;
a fount of excellent Christian education and application;
a safe, friendly place for people of all ages;
a fellowship growing locally and regionally."
"To reach this vision, we commit ourselves to the following:
Faithfully protecting the faith, life, and future of the congregation through a strong Session, committed to guarding the Reformed doctrine and practice in this church;
Faithfully pursuing the Word read, preached, sung, prayed, and seen each Lord's Day morning and evening;
Faithfully exercising Christ-given teaching gifts to educate ourselves, our children, the ministry, and the world biblically and theologically through Sunday School, Bible studies, children's choirs, the classroom, and the web;
Faithfully shepherding children, families, singles, and seniors, through pastoral care, child protection, and spiritual counsel;
Faithfully providing a God-honoring, visible, and conveniently-located facility not just for ourselves but also for the others the Lord will add for the generation to come."
