About Us
 “Encountering God… Equipping people… Extending the Gospel.”


We at Salem Covenant Church are a part of a communion of congregations known as The Evangelical Covenant Church (ECC).   
We are gathered by God, united in Christ, & empowered by the Holy Spirit to obey the great commandment and the great commission.  We affirm our companionship in faith with other church bodies and all those who fear God and keep God’s commandments.  
Our vision is “to be a vibrant community of Christ-followers drawing this current generation into an encounter with Jesus Christ, equipping all within the community to share His love and truth with others.”


What we believe… the Holy Scripture is the Word of God.

The Evangelical Covenant Church adheres to the affirmations of the Protestant Reformation regarding the Bible. The ECC confesses that the Holy Scripture, the Old & the New Testament, is the Word of God & the only perfect rule for faith, doctrine, & conduct. The ECC affirms the historic confessions of the Christian Church while emphasizing the sovereignty of the Word of God over all creedal interpretations.

We affirm the following;
The centrality of the word of God.
The necessity of the new birth.
A commitment to the whole mission of the church.
The church as a fellowship of believers.
A conscious dependence on the Holy Spirit.
The reality of freedom in Christ.


The Evangelical Covenant Church is a rapidly growing multi-ethnic denomination in the United States and Canada with ministries on five continents of the world. Founded in 1885 by Swedish immigrants, the ECC values the Bible as the word of God, the gift of God’s grace and ever-deepening spiritual life that comes through a faith with Jesus Christ, the importance of extending God’s love and compassion to a hurting world, and the strength that comes from unity within diversity.

The Evangelical Covenant Church is:  Evangelical, but not exclusive.  Biblical, but not doctrinaire.  Traditional, but not rigid.  Congregational, but not independent.
