Core Values and Commitments
Covenant Grove Church is called through the power of God to transform religious and irreligious people into Fully Devoted Followers of Christ.
Our church will seek to live out that calling through:
Mark 12:29-30; Deut 6:4-5; Matt 7:17-27; John 15:1-17
Accepting God’s amazing love and responding humbly with a life of genuine, obedient, devoted love.
Luke 10:27; Lev 19:18; John 13:34-35; Acts 2:42-47; Gal 5:19-6:6
Connecting and serving with the Family of Christ – supporting, encouraging, forgiving, challenging and deeply loving each other.
Matt 28:18-20; Gen 12:1-3; Acts 1:8; Isa 11
Following Christ’s example to love and serve a lost and hurting world – making a difference as we work for the Kingdom of God through the Holy Spirit.
A Plan for GROWING
Our goal is for each person to grow into a Fully Devoted Follower of Christ. We are not perfect, but we can walk with Jesus! Below there are 7 parts of Discipleship, Fellowship, and Mission. These are basic habits of Christianity. The best plan is to have a plan – for each season of your life to come up with a plan to grow in each of these areas, so that no area is neglected.
