Our mission and our values demonstrate who we are and flow from what we believe.

Our Mission

We exist to treasure, proclaim, and grow in the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

1

We Exist to Treasure

Jesus Christ is the greatest treasure anyone can ever know. Treasuring God is made possible through the gospel by which we are adopted into God’s family, saved from our sin, and brought into fellowship with God through the Holy Spirit. This is why we treasure the gospel. It restores our relationship with God!

We Exist to Proclaim

Once we know Jesus, we get to share the good news of His salvation with people who don’t know Him. Evangelism is every believer’s opportunity and responsibility to proclaim that we can be forgiven and accepted by a holy God through the person and work of Jesus Christ.

We Exist to Grow

The Church is made up of people growing together in community. Mature Christians display the fruit of the Spirit, actively serve in the church, and help one another grow in grace. This growth is made possible because of the glorious gospel we treasure and proclaim.

Our Values

The core values of any organization reflect who they are and what they believe. At Covenant Fellowship, we have seven core values we share with the churches of Sovereign Grace Churches.

Gospel-Centered

We believe that the gospel—the good news of God’s saving activity in Jesus Christ—is the pinnacle of His redemptive acts, the center of the Bible’s story, and the essential message for our faith, life, and witness. We are committed to preaching the gospel, singing the gospel, praying the gospel, counseling out of the gospel, and building our churches upon the gospel.

Reformed

Scripture presents the all-glorious, triune God as the source and end of all things, sovereignly working all things according to His will. At the center of God’s purposes in the world is the exaltation of His glory through the redemption of sinners. God’s sovereign grace in salvation humbles us, fills us with gratitude, and compels us to worship Him and share the message of His grace to all people.

Continuationist

We believe the Holy Spirit desires to continually fill each believer with increased power for Christian life and witness, including the giving of His supernatural gifts for the building up of the church and for various works of ministry in the world.

Complementarian

We believe it was God’s glorious plan to create men and women in His image, giving them equal dignity and value in His sight, while appointing differing and complementary roles for them within the home and the church. As the redeemed community of God, the church has a unique opportunity and responsibility to celebrate this complementarity, to contend for it against cultural hostility, and to protect it from sinful distortions.

Elder-Governed

Jesus Christ reigns as head over His church, and He gives to His church elders (or pastors) to govern and lead local churches under His authority.

Outreach and Mission

Our gospel-centrality entails not only treasuring the gospel personally but sharing it passionately. The risen Christ commissioned His church to make disciples of all nations. We believe that commission falls to us and to all believers and that it is fulfilled in a primary way through church planting, whereby the gospel is proclaimed and converts are formed into communities of disciples.

Partnerships

We enjoy a rich relationship with churches in the Glen Mills area, in the broader United States, and around the world to advance the gospel of Jesus Christ.

Meet the Leadership

Our pastors love the Lord, the Word of God, and the community in and around Covenant Fellowship.
