Who We Are
Grace Covenant Church is a multi-cultural, multi-ethnic, and multi-generational church who aims to look like Heaven. We are a part of Every Nation Churches, a global family of churches, who aim to bring the gospel to campuses and cities in every nation in the world.
To help win the Washington Metropolitan Area to Jesus by planting Christ Centered, Spirit Empowered, and Socially Responsible churches and campus ministries.
We exist to help every person within our sphere of influence to Encounter Christ, Experience biblical Community, and Extend God's Kingdom.
What We Believe
We believe there is one eternal, almighty, and perfect God; Father, Son and Holy Spirit
We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in His personal return in power and glory.
Redemption through Christ
We believe in the bodily resurrection of Jesus Christ, and all the benefits therein being accessible to those who places their trust in Christ alone for salvation.
The Holy Spirit
We believe that for the salvation of lost and sinful man, regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential. We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling the Christian is empowered to live a godly life
We believe the Bible to be the inspired, the only infallible, authoritative Word of God. As affirmed, the Bible speaks with final authority concerning truth, morality, and the proper conduct of mankind and is the sole and final source of all that we believe.
The gospel is the good news that God became man in Jesus Christ. He lived the life we should have lived and died the death we should have died - in our place. Three days later He rose from the dead, proving that He is the Son of God, and offering the gift of salvation and forgiveness of sins to everyone who repents and believes in Him
2 Corinthians 5:18-19 “Now all these things are from God, who reconciled us to Himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation, namely, that God was in Christ reconciling the world to Himself, not counting their trespasses against them, and He has committed to us the word of reconciliation.”
As a church that aims to look like Heaven, Grace Covenant Church deeply values God’s desire for multiethnic expression and embodies the treasure of diversity. Prejudice, bigotry, and racism are enemies to the love of Jesus Christ and the principles we adhere to and vigorously safeguard. The cross of Christ is not simply a bridge that gets us to God, it tears down walls that separate us from each other. We have been given the ministry of reconciliation, and as we fulfill this responsibility, we demonstrate the power of the Gospel at work in our lives.
As agents of reconciliation, we pray that God may grant peace, safety, and security as an inheritance to every man, woman, and child.
Genesis 1:27 “So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them.”
The Bible declares the truth that God created mankind in his own image, making people uniquely male and female. He did so to express his love and to give insight into his own nature. Being made like God as a man or a woman, a person images the sacred and glorious nature of God Himself. Doing so, we each exhibit the beauty and value God regards us as possessing. When He looks upon us as his creatures, the Creator takes joy in what He has made for He sees an image of Himself.
