Our Beliefs

We believe the Bible is the inspired and infallible Word of God. The Bible is our rule for what we believe about
God and what duty He requires of us. (2 Tim.3:14-17)

We believe that the Westminster Confession of Faith and Catechisms are the most accurate summary of what the Bible teaches.

Here is the public profession of faith made by all members of Covenant Church:

I believe the Bible, consisting of the Old and New Testaments, is the Word of God, and Its doctrine of salvation is the only perfect and true doctrine of salvation. (Ps. 119, Lk.24: 25-27, , Jn.5:46, 2 Tim.3:14-17, I Pt.1:3-25)

I believe in one living and true God, in whom eternally there are three distinct Persons – God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit – who are the same in being and equal in power and glory, and that Jesus Christ is God the Son, come in the flesh. (Dt.6:4, Isa.44:6, I Cor.8:4-6, Jn. 1:1-18, 20:28)

I believe that I am a sinner and I confess that because of my sinfulness I hate and humble myself before God
and that I repent of my sin, and that I do not trust in myself for salvation but in Jesus Christ alone.
(Rom.3:1-31, 4: 1-25, 6:23, Jn.3:16, 36, 6:32-40, 14:6)

I believe that Jesus Christ is my sovereign Lord, and I promise that, in reliance on the grace of God, I will
serve Him with all that is within me, forsake the world, resist the devil, put to death my sinful deeds and
desires, and lead a godly life. (Mt. 10: 24-42, Jn.14:15, I Jn. 2:1-6)

I promise to participate faithfully in this church’s worship and service, to submit in the Lord to its government,
and to heed its discipline, even in case I should be found erring in doctrine or life. (Exod.20: 8-11, Acts 2: 37-47, Heb.10:23-25, 13: 7, 17, Eph. 4:11-12, I Tim.3: 1-13, Mt.18:15-20, I Cor.5:1-13)
