What We Believe

Evangelical Covenant Church

Our Beliefs

Catalyst Church is a part of the Northwest Conference of the Evangelical Covenant Church.

The Evangelical Covenant Church is a vibrant, diverse and growing group of more than 825 churches whose work spans across more than 53 countries. Started in 1885 by Swedish immigrants, the Covenant has a passion for seeing people engage in a personal relationship with God through Jesus Christ, across more populations, in a more caring and just world.

The Covenant church has 6 affirmations that help define the views and ethos of the denomination:
•We affirm the centrality of the word of God.
•We affirm the necessity of the new birth.
•We affirm a commitment to the whole mission of the church.
•We affirm the church as a fellowship of believers.
•We affirm a conscious dependence on the Holy Spirit.
•We affirm the reality of freedom in Christ.

More on the affirmations can be found here. Additionally, this video from one of our denomination’s past presidents, Gary Walter, gives a great introduction to our larger church family.

Our denominational website has additional resources and information as well.
