In the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, this church opens wide her doors and offers welcome to all who are spiritually weak and seek rest; to all who mourn and long for comfort; to all who struggle and desire victory; to all who sin and need the Saviour; to all who are strangers and want fellowship; to all who hunger and thirst after righteousness; to all who are poor in spirit and desire the riches of the gospel; and to whomsoever will come to Jesus Christ in living faith and repentance, looking to Him as Lord and Liberator.
God—the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit—is a missionary God. And the story of salvation is a story about God’s mission: from the time He pursued Adam and Eve in the Garden, through His calling of Israel to be a blessing to the nations, to the final welcoming of people “from every tribe and language and people and nation.” To know the story of salvation is to know that mission is not just what God does, it is who He is. The Father “so loved the world” that He sent His Son to be the Saviour of the world. If we truly know the heart of our Heavenly Father—who ran to embrace prodigals like us—then we will reflect God’s character by being a missionary people. Because of the work and character of God, it is our mission at Christ Covenant Church to see the Gospel of Jesus Christ spread to the ends of the earth. We believe that Jesus has called us to proclaim the good news of His resurrection, and that there is no corner of this earth that is not affected by this miraculous news. God gathers us, week after week, into fellowship with one another, to live out the realities of Christian community together and to serve the nations in life, word and deed. We were all once sinners, but now we are a forgiven people, clothed in the righteousness of Christ. So come, join our celebration, and rejoice with us in the forgiveness of sins and the joy of new life.
