 Our mission is proclaiming Christ as the only way to abundant, eternal life. Whom do we tell? Jesus made it clear that Christians are to reach out to “all the nations” (Matthew 28:19).   Instead of countries, he was referring to people groups, those ethnic cultures without a Gospel witness. Christian missions, however, is not limited to overseas ministry. While believers should faithfully support those who go to the unreached, all Christians have the mission to share Christ on the home field with family, friends, coworkers, and the community.   Covenant provides opportunities for being “on mission” for Christ.

Direct service to our community is an important priority for our church. Through the Covenant Cares ministry volunteers are recruited projects are scheduled throughout the year to provide opportunities for Covenant Baptist to demonstrate God’s love and reach out to the needs of the community. These strategic efforts are planned to reach the lost and un-churched, and minister to the needs of people through school projects, servant evangelism, feeding the hungry, and other areas of outreach and ministry as needed.
