Our Vision

To the degree Christ Covenant Church fulfills its mission, we will affirm seven core values:

Worship. We will purposefully be a worshipping church where God is truly honored as we come into His presence. Our worship will be radically God-centered as we begin with the awesome God who is the omnipotent Creator of everything, who is above everything, below everything, in everything but not contained, holding all things together.
Prayer. We will build our lives and ministry, individually and corporately, on the Word of God and prayer. When God’s people come together in united and specific prayer — without exception — God hears, delivers, provides, empowers, and does whatever is needed to answer their requests.
Evangelism. We will be an evangelizing church where every member looks to bring others to Christ through his or her personal life and ministry. The “Good News” of Jesus Christ will be in everything we do!
Discipleship. The Word of God will be the centerpiece of our life and ministry together. A vital learning experience with His Word is crucial in our becoming a church where “every member is growing in Christ”.
Caring. Our attitude toward others will be that of our Lord’s: unconditional love, deep empathy, individual concern, a personal touch, and an invitation to follow Him.
Equipping. If we are going to measure up to God’s standard, we will be a church where all of God’s people carry on the ministry and every member is actively involved in reaching out to the community. Because God’s Spirit lives within us, wherever we go and whatever we do, Christ goes with us, and together we do the work of ministry.
Growth. Finally, Christ Covenant Church will purposefully be a growing church. As long as there are lost people in the world, we will be committed to growing numerically as well as spiritually.

These are the seven core values of our ministry. They are the posts on which our vision for ministry stands. They are what we strive to be and, by God’s grace, what we will become.

“Our mission is to help all men and women love and serve Jesus Christ through worship, study, training, and hands-on ministry in the community and the world.”
