philosophy of ministry
Every church has its own unique identity, a DNA. Our philosophy of ministry begins with our theology and plays out through our practices. Our understanding of God and scripture shapes our philosophy of ministry. The philosophy shapes how the local church functions.
At Covenant Church, we desire an incarnational model of ministry rather than an attractional model. Instead of ministering on the basis of people coming to us, we prefer to take ministry to the people. Our focus is on depth rather than width.
Our philosophy has led us to the conclusion that the church is not made up of a building or a weekly gathering of people, but by being the body of Christ through sharing life together. We desire to create a diverse culture of small groups with the understanding of our inability to do life alone.
