We seek 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:

about Bethesda

  • We affirm the centrality of the word of God.
  • We affirm the necessity of the new birth.
  • We affirm a commitment to the whole mission
    of the Church.
  • We affirm the Church as a fellowship of believers.
  • We affirm a conscious dependence on the Holy Spirit.
  • We affirm the reality of freedom in Christ.
  • “Do you confess Jesus Christ as your Savior and promise to follow him as Lord?”
  • “Do you accept the Holy Scriptures, the Old and New Testaments, as the word of God and  the only perfect rule for faith, doctrine, and conduct?”

 

“My purpose is that they may be encouraged in heart and united in love so that they may have the full riches of complete understanding in order that they may know the mystery of God, namely Christ…”  Colossians 2:2 (NIV)
