Our Beliefs

What We Believe

At Faith, we believe that God has called us into a lasting personal relationship with Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord, and that He enables us to live passionately and thoughtfully as His disciples in the world through the power of the Holy Spirit.

As a member of The Evangelical Covenant Church, we value “the Bible as the Word of God, the gift of God’s grace and ever-deepening spiritual life that comes through faith in Jesus Christ, the importance of extending God’s love and compassion to a hurting world, and the strength that comes from unity within diversity.”


The Evangelical Covenant Church seeks to form and nurture communities that are deeply committed to Jesus Christ and passionately engaged in Christ’s mission in the world. The purpose of Covenant affirmations is to make clear the values and principles that have guided the Evangelical Covenant Church since its founding in 1885.

For Covenant people, our essential beliefs are summed up in what we call Covenant Affirmations:
