ECC cares about one thing more than anything else: Jesus Christ. ECC is a family of individuals that have found hope in Jesus, and simply want as many people as possible to experience that exact same freedom.
Where we come from
ECC is a part of a larger family of churches, a denomination called The Evangelical Covenant Church, often referred to as "the Covenant." For more information on who we are and what we're about, please visit our denominational home page. For Covenant people, our essential beliefs are summed up in what we call Covenant Affirmations.
Where we're headed
To Know God, Follow Jesus and Pursue God's Purposes in the World.
- We “know God” when we embrace God’s call in Christ and welcome others to do the same in an atmosphere of hospitality and grace.
- We “follow Jesus” when we engage in the life-long pathway of transformation, so that Christ is formed in us (Christoformity).
- We “pursue God’s purposes in the world” when we empower and equip one another to practice faithful presence in our community and world, by loving God, loving others, and making disciples.
