© 2016 Maywood Covenant Church

The Evangelical Covenant Church is a rapidly growing multiethnic 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

Identity and Biblical Mission

We are united by Christ in a holy covenant of churches empowered by the Holy Spirit to obey the great commandments and the great commission: to love God with all our heart, soul, strength, and mind, to love our neighbors as ourselves, and to go into all the world and make disciples.

Vision for Mission

    preaching, and study of the word; the celebration of the
    sacraments; and fellowship across gender, race, age, culture,
    and class.

• to equip loving, giving, growing Christians to reach out with
    the good news of Jesus Christ – evangelizing the lost,
    ministering to those in need, and seeking justice for the
