Value Statement 2011

Covenant Baptist Church

We believe in God, the Father Almighty,
The Creator of heaven and earth,
and in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord.

As our expression of this faith,

We value the Bible as God’s revelation of Himself to humanity;

We value worship, both personal and corporate, as our expression of love and devotion to God;

We value freedom for individual believers to seek God as He reveals Himself;

We value biblical education and discipleship but acknowledge the personal responsibility for spiritual growth;

We value missions–the call to be involved in our community and our world in sharing the gospel of God’s healing love;

We value the gifts and contributions of each member of our church family as the means to ministry;

We value children–their presence, energy and innocence–as God’s gift to families and to the church;

We value the earth and seek to be good stewards of everything God has given;

We value a healing environment for the broken and wounded and seek to create such an atmosphere;

We value hospitality and welcome all who come seeking to know God as He revealed himself in His Son, Jesus Christ.
