Welcome to the Evangelical Covenant Church
We are a multiethnic movement of 875 congregations in the United States and Canada with ministries on five continents of the world. The ECC values the Bible as the word of God, the gift of God’s grace through faith in Jesus Christ, the call to extend God’s love to a hurting world, and the strength that comes from unity within diversity.
We join God in God's mission to see more disciples among more populations in a more caring and just world.
We pursue this through five strategic priorities:
Start & Strengthen Churches
Our vision is to see every Covenant congregation become a healthy, missional church that plants healthy, missional churches. By healthy we mean pursuing Christ and by missional we mean pursuing Christ’s priorities in the world. We are committed to expanding our growth trajectory by both supporting established churches and planting new churches. The Spirit who starts churches is the same Spirit who strengthens churches. We are in awe of how the Holy Spirit is moving among us.
