The EPC is both evangelical and Presbyterian. We are evangelical in our zeal for the gospel, as well as evangelism, missions, and living obediently as followers of Jesus. At the same time, we are rooted deeply in the Protestant Reformation and especially the theological and pastoral work of John Calvin. We embrace the Westminster Confession of Faith as our doctrinal standard, and the rule of spiritually mature elders linked together regionally as the best way to guide local congregations.
The EPC started in 1981 with a commitment to loving each other and not engaging in quarrels and strife. The result is that when we get together in our regional and national meetings, we spend most of our time in worship and fellowship and almost none in arguing with each other.
The EPC consists of more than 600 churches with approximately 145,000 members.
In grateful response to God, in submission to the Lordship of Jesus Christ, in obedience to Scripture, and as led by the Holy Spirit,
Covenant Presbyterian Church strives to be a faithful part of the church as we carry out ministry in the three primary areas of...
Growth - inwardly strong
Outreach - outwardly focused, and
Stewardship - faithfully committed.
