Transforming Hearts, Conforming to Christ
Resources for Growth
Covenant's faith and life (belief and behavior) is based on the Holy Bible, God's infallible and inerrant Word, given to us in the 66 books of the Old and New Testaments. We believe that the Bible is the inspired Word of God and that it is the supreme and final authority (2 Timothy 3:16, 17). Reading the Bible, all of it, is of first importance in the Christian life!
Songs of Praise
Covenant sings hymns from the beloved Trinity Hymnal (old, blue version). There is also a newer red version of the Trinity Hymnal. Sing God's praises and keep Christian melody in your heart!
The Christian Faith
We believe that The Westminster Standards (Confession of Faith, Larger & Shorter Catechisms) are the best systematic summary of the Christian faith which is described in the Bible. Christians are called to know the whole counsel of God (Acts 20:27). The Westminster standards are a great place to start!
