What is a "covenant"?

God wants a personal relationship with every one of us. The biblical name for this relationship is "covenant." A covenant is a partnership. It's a two-way relationship where God makes promises to us, and we make commitments to God. God has promised to guide, and empower, and to save God's church, and whenever someone joins our congregation, they offer a commitment to support our congregation with their prayers, presence, gifts, service, and witness. 

We remember this covenant every time we welcome a new member into the church, and once a year we renew our covenant by taking time to think and pray and talk our own personal relationship with God. 

There are five steps in renewing our relationship with God, and here you will find resources for every step of the way.
