“Whoever I am, you know me, O God. You know I am yours,” wrote Bonhoeffer.
 
The most important thing about us at First Covenant is that we belong to Jesus. He has won us with a love that transcends this world and its greatest adversities. We are excited about learning to live in this love, loving Him back, and answering His call to pass on that love to others.
The Body of Christ
Our broadest family connection, by God’s grace, is that we belong to the Body of Christ. What we have in common with God’s worldwide family now and through the ages outweighs our differences. (Check out, for example, such Bible teaching as 1 Corinthians 3:16-17; Ephesians 2:14-17 ; 4:4-6.) One expression of this at First Covenant is our partnership with other believers, churches, and organizations to bring God’s love to others. You can see what some of these connections are on this website through our Missions page.
 
 

Our Denomination
We are a member congregation of the Evangelical Covenant Church (ECC), a rapidly growing multi-ethnic denomination in the United States and Canada with ministries on five continents of the world. Founded in 1885 by Swedish immigrants, the ECC values 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 with diversity. Our denomination’s web site is www.covchurch.org.

Our Conference
We are one of forty-seven churches and fellowship groups that make up the Southeast Conference of the ECC and are called to continue the mission of Jesus Christ.  Together our congregations comprise a powerful force to share God’s redeeming love to mankind. The mission of the Southeast Conference is to build strong churches that will bring people into a saving and growing relationship with Jesus Christ. For more on our conference see www.se-conf.org
