What We Believe

There are a couple things that define who we are as a church body at Millard Community Covenant Church.

We’re Biblical

We respect the authority and relevance of the Bible as we seek to understand God’s heart, and apply it to our own.

We’re Devotional

We believe that, because of sin, everyone has missed out on the relationship that God desires with us. But through the grace of Jesus Christ, we can restore that relationship, and pursue a lifetime of ever-deepening faith.

We’re Missional

We believe that God wants lost people found, and hurting people helped—wherever they are.

We’re Connectional

As Christians, we live together graciously, and are mutually committed to unity, respect, humility, and encouragement. We share a bond in Christ that cannot be broken.

We Are A Part of the Evangelical Covenant Church Denomination

We’re blessed to be part of the Evangelical Covenant Church denomination!  Maybe you’re completely familiar with our denomination, and maybe you’ve never heard of it.  That’s totally fine—we get that a lot!  Let us give you a little history…

Set in motion in 1885 by Swedish immigrants, today the Evangelical Covenant Church denomination is a growing, multi-ethnic, intergenerational mosaic of churches with ministry partnerships in nearly forty countries.

While the Evangelical Covenant Church denomination does not require adherence to any written creed, we take our theology very seriously, and our history as well.  We are a Reformation church, a part of the Church universal, and an evangelical church.  In that heritage, we share certain central beliefs, which draw us together in faith and fellowship and make possible a freedom among us on more widely ranging issues.  We describe those central beliefs as “Affirmations”.

Our Affirmations

We affirm the Centrality of the Word of God

We affirm the Necessity of the New Birth.

We affirm a Commitment to the Whole Mission of the Church.

We affirm the Church as a Fellowship of Believers.

We affirm a Conscious Dependence on the Holy Spirit.

We affirm the Reality of Freedom in Christ.
