What We Believe

Our Beliefs

The Bible

We believe the Bible in its entirety to be the inspired Word of God and the infallible truth of faith and conduct. The Bible is God’s Word to all people. Human authors, under the supernatural guidance of the Holy Spirit, wrote it.

Deuteronomy 4:1-2; Psalms 119:11, 89, 105; Isaiah 40:8; Matthew 22:29; John 5:39; 16:13-15; 17:17; Romans 15:4; 2 Timothy 3:15-17; Hebrews 1:1-2; 4:12; 1 Peter 1:25; 2 Peter 3:16

The Trinity

We believe in one God. He is the creator and ruler of the universe. He eternally exists in three persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.

Deuteronomy 6:4; Isaiah 61:1; Matthew 28:19; Mark 1:9-11; Luke 1:35; John 5:21-23; 14:10, 16; Romans 8:9-11; 1 Corinthians 8:6; 2 Corinthians 13:14; Hebrews 1:8-10; James 2:19

The Father – God

God is great: He is all powerful, all knowing, ever present, unchanging, completely worthy of our trust, and above all, Holy. It is in Him that we live, move and exist. God is good. He is our Father. He is loving, compassionate, and faithful to His people and His promises.

Exodus 3:14; Numbers 23:19; Leviticus 11:44-45; 19:2; Psalm 11:4-6; Malachi 3:6; John 3:16; 4:24; 5:26; 14:1; Acts 17:28; Romans 3:3-4

The Son – Jesus Christ

We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ, the only begotten Son of God, was conceived of the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, was crucified, died, was buried, was resurrected, ascended into heaven, and is now seated at the right hand of God the Father.

Isaiah 7:14; 53; Matthew 1:18-23; 3:17; 8:29; 14:33; 16:16; 28:5-6; Luke 22:70; 24:46-47; John 1:1, 14; 10:30; 11:25-27; 17:1-5; Acts 1:9; 2:22-24; 7:55-56; Romans 1:3-4; 3:23-26; 8:1-3; 10:4; 1 Corinthians 8:6; 2 Corinthians 5:19-21; Gal 4:4-5; Philippians 2:5-11; Colossians 1:15; 2:9; 1 Timothy 2:5-6; 3:16

The Holy Spirit

The Holy Spirit is God and His presence, in our hearts, assures us of our relationship with Christ. He guides believers into all truth and exalts Christ. He convicts people of their sin, God’s righteousness, and the coming judgment. He comforts us, gives us spiritual gifts, and makes us more like Christ.

Genesis 1:2; Psalm 51:11; 139:7 ff.; Isaiah 61:1-3; Joel 2:28-32; Mark 1:10; Luke 1:35; 4:1; 11:13; 12:12; John 15:26; 16:7-14; Acts 1:8; 2:1-4; 13:2; Romans 8:9-11, 14-16, 26-27; 1 Corinthians 3:16; Ephesians 1:13-14; 2 Peter 1:21; Revelation 22:17

Eternity

Man was created to exist forever. He will exist either eternally separated from God, in Hell, by sin or in union with God, in Heaven, through forgiveness and salvation.

John 3:16, 36; Romans 6:23; 1 John 2:25; 5:11-13; Revelation 20:15

Salvation

We believe in personal salvation of believers through the shed blood of Jesus Christ.  When people place their faith in the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ as sufficient payment for their sin, and confess it with their mouth, they are saved. Salvation is a gift from God, and it cannot be earned through our own efforts.

Isaiah 1:18; 53:5-6; 55:7; Matthew 1:21; 27:22-66, 28:1-6; Luke 1:68-69; 2:28-32; John 1:12; 3:16, 36; 5:24; Acts 2:21; 4:12; 16:30-31; Romans 1:16-18; 3:23-25; 5:8-10; 6; 1 Corinthians 1:18; 2 Corinthians 5:17-20; Galatians 2:20; 3:13; Ephesians 2:8-10; Philippians 2:12-13; Hebrews 9:24-28; Revelation 3:20

Water Baptism

We believe in water baptism as an outward expression of an inward confession that you identify with the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ! According to the Bible, three things happen to believers who are baptized:

(1) They die with Christ to their old self;
(2) They rise with Christ to become and are a new creation; and
(3) They are part of the kingdom citizenship

Matthew 28:19; Romans 6:10

The Church

The Church is a local community of believers unified through faith in Christ. It is committed to the teachings of Christ, obeying all of His commands, and it seeks to bring the Gospel to the world. The Church works together in love and unity, intent on the ultimate purpose of glorifying Christ.

Matthew 16:18-19; 18:15-20; Acts 2:41-47; 5:11-14; 13:1-3; 14:23; 16:5; 20:28; 1 Corinthians 7:17; 9:13-14; 12; Ephesians 1:22-23; 2:19-22; 3:10-12; 5:22-32; Colossians 1:18; 3:15; 1 Timothy 4:14; 1 Peter 5:1-4; Revelation 21:2-3

Vision

A VISIONARY LETTER FROM YOUR PASTORS

Dear Friends,

            Welcome to Covenant City Church! We appreciate you choosing us to be a part of your continued growth and success in the Kingdom of God.  At Covenant City Church (CCC) you can expect a multicultural Christ-centered family environment with people of all ages, and practical teaching from the word of God being boldly proclaimed.  Covenant City Church fosters an atmosphere filled with praise and worship from genuine people, of all ages, that love Jesus and want to share that love with everyone as their lives are changed through the Holy Spirit!

            As your pastors, it is important for us to share with you why we are here, what we do, and where we are going next. The vision for this church requires every part of the body to be actively engaged in order for it to be realized and I am so grateful that you are choosing us!  Our vision is to be a place where people can come embrace an intimate relationship with God, first, and grow to inspire others to do the same. We want to see people from every race, nationality, and creed brought into the family of Jesus by meeting them where they are so they can be who God created them to be and go out and share the love of Jesus with everyone they encounter!

            We are committed to helping people to discover who they are in Christ, develop their skills, talents, and gifts so they can do the work that is the purpose for their lives.  We have a lot of work to do with our plans to have LIFE Global Missions Fund, be affiliated with accredited Bible colleges, a Scholarship Fund for high-school youth to attend college, and Third Row Productions. These are all part of a larger vision to have several different state-of-the-art campuses and a LIFE Center, of which most of these ministries will operate. We want to reach millions of souls and welcome them into the family of Jesus! 

            Now that you have a better understanding of who we are and what we want to do I encourage you to discover, develop, and do the work of the Lord so we can impact homes, communities, nations, and the world abroad! Thank you for choosing Covenant City Church!
