What We Believe

As a congregation of the Evangelical Covenant Church (ECC) (Click here for more info) First Covenant Church (FirstCov) holds to the foundational truths of Christian faith and life, affirming a freedom in Christ that allows for a variety of biblical action and expression to be woven into the fabric of our community.


Six affirmations form the tapestry of an ECC community:

  • The centrality of the Word of God (the Bible)
  • The necessity of new birth through Jesus Christ
  • A commitment to the whole mission of the Church
  • The Church as a fellowship of believers
  • Conscious dependence on the Holy Spirit
  • The reality of freedom in Christ
