Covenant City Church is committed to the inerrancy, infallibility, and divine inspiration of Scripture (e.g., 2 Tim. 3:16; 2 Pet. 1:20-21). The Word of God is the primary vehicle by which the Spirit conforms His people into the image of the Son (e.g., Jn. 17:17; Rom. 8:28; Eph. 4:22-23; Col. 3:10). Therefore, we believe, amid the gathering of the saints, that the most fundamental means in preaching/teaching the Word of God is through the exposition of the text. Hence, we believe in the unitary structure of redemptive history, which is embodied in the Old and New Testament, or the 66 books of the Protestant canon. We believe that the Scriptures are the final authority in formulating theological and doctrinal fidelity for the application of the Christian life.
Disciple-Making Groups (Book of Romans)
Covenant City Church prioritizes the biblical mandate to make disciples of all nations (e.g., Matt. 28:18-20; Acts 1:8). All programs, events, and/or efforts will be driven to assist people toward joyful obedience to Christ Jesus. We believe in seven central components to disciple-making: (1) Gospel centrality, (2) biblical doctrine, (3) genuine personal relationships, (4) prayer, (5) modeling Christ-centeredness, (6) perpetual discipleship, and (7) covenantal community. The life of the church is inherently designed for discipleship. From the preaching of God’s Word to the ordinances of baptism and the Lord’s Table to the life of the covenant community, these unique facets coalesce into one unified whole in order to produce a disciple-making society. Everything that is done within the covenant community is to drive them toward greater affection and deeper knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
Covenant City Church is devoted to the equipping of the saints for the work of the ministry (e.g., Eph. 4:12). We conclude that all believers are called to serve the church and her mission faithfully (e.g., 1 Pet. 2:4-5). Pastors have the God-given mandate to equip, prepare, and build the saints. The church, collectively, is called to preach the Good News. The people of God, the new temple of priest/kings (e.g., Jn. 2:19-22; 1 Cor. 3:16-17; Eph. 2:20-22; 1 Pet. 2:9-10), are mandated to steward the Gospel and administer God’s presence through the proclamation of the life, death, and resurrection of Christ.
Family and Children Ministry
At Covenant City Church, it is our biblical conviction that one of the primary roles the church has been called to is in the area of family discipleship. Concerning the truths of God, they are to be taught primarily and diligently in the home through parents. Covenant City Church is committed to a family integrated youth ministry model that places the greater responsibility of discipleship upon fathers and mothers. The Scripture commands this! Therefore, we believe that the correct paradigm for biblical discipleship must begin, first, within each individual family.
Covenant Groups (once of month)
Covenant City Church is committed to living missionally together for the sake of the glory of God (e.g., Matt. 5:14-16; Acts 2:42-44; 4:1-3; 1 Pet. 3:15-16). Together-ness is rooted in our covenantal commitment, first and foremost, to our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ (e.g., Matt. 16:13-20) and, consequently, one to another (e.g., 1 Cor. 12:12-27). Membership embodies, then, a partnership and devotion to the mission of the kingdom in every facet of the believer’s life. In addition, church discipline becomes a necessary conduit for faithful and grace-filled accountability (e.g., 1 Cor. 5:1-13; 2 Cor. 2:4-16). Three layers of church discipline: (1) member-to-member accountability, (2) elder-to-member accountability, and (3) community-to-member accountability (e.g., Matt. 18:15-17). A plurality of pastor/elder functions, in turn, as divine oversight for the people of God (e.g., Acts 14:23; 16:4; 20:17; 21:18; Titus 1:5; Jas. 5:14). The pastors/elders govern and oversee the covenant members for the sake of spiritual vitality and Gospel advancement (e.g., Heb. 13:17). These interconnected relations serve to help God’s people walk together in faithfulness to the advancement of the kingdom of God.
Covenant City Church is committed to planting Gospel-centered churches for the glory of God. We believe that the church is the primary vehicle, established by Christ, to advance the Gospel forward to the ends of the earth (e.g., Acts 1:8; 1 Tim. 3:15). Thus, we are committed to training qualified men to pastor and lead as elders in the multi-varied ways of biblical eldership (e.g., 2 Tim. 2:1-2; Titus 1:5-9). We are also committed to training and sending missionaries cross-culturally for the planting of churches in the advancement of the Good News. We are dedicated to seeing women flourish in their God-given spheres of influence for the good of the church (e.g., Titus 2:3-5). Covenant City Church desires to work tirelessly in seeing the Gospel advance through the means of biblical faithfulness.
