About Us

About Christ Covenant Church…

Our name reflect the two great themes of Scripture: Christ – He is both the central figure of the New Testament and Old Testaments (see Luke 24:13-35). Covenant – Throughout the Bible God relates to His people by means of invoking covenants. In Genesis 3 we learn that our first parents failed to keep the covenant God made with them thus plunging themselves and all humanity into sin. Fortunately in that same chapter God initiated a covenant of grace (Gen. 3:15) to rescue sinners from His wrath. This ‘new’ covenant was administered by types and shadows through national Israel. With the incarnation of Christ it was administered finally and completely (see Luke 22 and the book of Hebrews). In Romans 5 the Apostle Paul draws a comparison between Christ and Adam thus linking the two. In short, what the first Adam failed to do (keep God’s covenant) Jesus, the second Adam did by keeping God’s law completely and graciously dying to atone for sin.

Our preaching and teaching is informed by both of these central themes.

About worship…

The Scriptures tell us that God is a consuming fire who is to be worshiped with reverence and awe (Hebrews 12:28-29). He summons us to worship Him for the purpose of ministering to us through Word and Sacrament.
