Covenant Presbyterian PCA – Who are we?
Covenant Presbyterian Church, PCA, is a congregation of the Presbyterian Church in America. As a PCA church we are connected to all the congregations in the PCA fellowship. We pool resources, meet regularly to deliberate ministry issues, and we share the conviction and commitment of all our sister congregations. Together we are: Faithful to the Scriptures, True to the Reformed Faith, and Obedient to the Great Commission of Jesus Christ.
Our Statement of Faith, shared by all PCA churches is the Westminster Confession of Faith and Catechisms (WCF). These are the system of doctrine set forth in the Bible. The Westminster Standards, as they are sometimes called, state the teachings of the Bible in a systematic manner. For more than four centuries, many churches have used WCF as their doctrinal standard. The Confession is not infallible nor authoritative nor inspired by God. Holy Scriptures alone are described in those terms.
For our local Christian ministry in Tullahoma and the surrounding region, we adopted 10 core values to guide us as we seek to minister to the people in our reach. They are agreeable with the Bible and our statement of faith and were prayerfully adopted by us and for us.
Our vision is to glorify God by establishing a healthy congregation in Tullahoma in order to reach the diverse population moving to and residing in Tullahoma and the surrounding communities.
Our aim is to live as a community glorying in the cross of Christ in our worship, fellowship, mercy, and outreach.
We are absolutely committed to the Bible as God’s infallible and inerrant Word, the only source of knowledge concerning what we are to believe and how we are to live.
We believe that prayer is fundamental, rather than supplemental.
We are confessional, connectional, Reformed, and evangelical.
Our public worship is centered in God, gospel-proclaiming, creative, affectionate, and balanced in attention to form and freedom.
We strive to strengthen families and promote a community where the Gospel produces life-changing relationships within our church family.
We believe that there is one race of people - the human race - and that all people are created in the image of God and that there is sanctity in all human life.
We are convinced that there is no one that God by His Spirit and through the gospel cannot change.
We are committed to the spread of the gospel through evangelism and the multiplication of churches locally and abroad.
