About Us

“Covenant Reformed Church is dedicated to
the teaching of the apostles and to fellowship,
to the breaking of bread and the prayers.”

Acts 2:42


Covenant Reformed Church is a small church with a big heart. Far from being a discouragement for us, Scripture tells us to not despise the days of small beginnings (Zech. 4:10). In order to strengthen the body of Covenant Reformed Church, and to continue to grow from glory to glory (2 Cor. 3:18), we focus our attention, energy, time, and ourselves to living out Acts 2:42. We do so believing that these things – the Bible, fellowship, the Lord’s Supper, and Prayer – are the ordinary ways which God uses to increase the Church’s faith and love for Him, and the ordinary ways that the Church uses to express our faith and love back to God and our love for each other. And in so doing, we are equipped to go out and make disciples of Jesus Christ.

TEACHING OF THE APOSTLES

Covenant Reformed Church strives to be a people who seek to be saturated with the Word of God. We believe the Bible in all its fullness is God’s revelation to man, and as such, is of infallible divine authority in all matters upon which it speaks (and it speaks of all matters); it is to be believed, as God’s instruction, in all that it affirms; obeyed, as God’s command, in all that it requires; and embraced, as God’s pledge, in all that it promises.  Jesus Christ is the ultimate person about whom the Scriptures speak. Therefore, Covenant Reformed Church is dedicated to the reading, singing, reciting, memorizing, preaching and teaching of the Bible, so that every member of the Church becomes better equipped to follow Jesus Christ.

FELLOWSHIP

Covenant Reformed Church is dedicated to restoring the intimacy of godly fellowship in the Church. In His High Priestly prayer, Jesus prayed that those who believe in Him would all be one, just as the Father is in Him and He in the Father. The purpose, Jesus tells us, for such a deep union and fellowship between believers would be for the salvation of the world (John 17:21).

Therefore, we seek to maintain the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace by providing as many opportunities as possible for the Church to gather in fellowship, because we desire to see people believe in Jesus Christ and be saved. Our fellowship gatherings are ideal places for unbelievers to meet Christ in us. We seek to accomplish this by:

  • Providing a Friday night fellowship gathering
  • Opening up our homes and lives to one another during the week.
  • Meeting with one another in homes, diners, parks, pubs, coffee shops, etc, – wherever life happens.
  • Eating and drinking and celebrating with another. We will also grieve, mourn and cry, and pray with and for each other, bearing one another’s burdens, for we are called to “live life together with God” (St. Augustine).
  • Engaging one another in deep genuine conversations, desiring nothing more than being a “friend that sticks closer than brother.”

BREAKING OF BREAD

Covenant Reformed Church believes that the Lord Jesus gave the Church the ordinance of breaking bread (the Lord’s Supper, Holy Communion, Eucharist) to not only be a perpetual reminder and a sign of His promise that His death was for our forgiveness, but also to be sign of the union that all Christians throughout the ages and throughout the world, have in Him. We therefore seek to break bread every Lord’s Day as a congregation in order to be built up in our faith in Jesus Christ, and to strengthen the union of the Church, and to proclaim the Lord’s death until He comes again.

THE PRAYERS

God is enthroned in the prayers and praises of His people (Ps. 22:3). We exalt Him, and give Him the glory and honor He deserves, and we submit ourselves to Him because He is the Lord.  During our times of prayer and worship, we not only offer up our prayers to God, but we offer and present ourselves, our hearts and minds, souls and bodies, to be a reasonable, holy, and living sacrifice to our God. The Lord Jesus taught us to pray to God in order that He might bless us by making Himself known to us in our prayers, and by providing for our needs. As God’s children, we desire nothing more than to be in the presence of our Heavenly, and to be blessed by Him on a regular basis. New Life Community Church therefore is committed to providing numerous and various opportunities for community prayer and praise for God’s people, such as:

  • Lord’s Day Worship Services
  • Tuesday and Thursday Morning Prayer Services
  • During fellowship gatherings
  • And in the intimacy and privacy of our own homes and families

You are all warmly invited to come and share in the life of God together with us, as we seek to live out Acts 2:42, and experience the grace of God daily.

God’s kingdom reign has victoriously entered into the world through the life, death, resurrection, and ascension of Jesus Christ.  By Christ’s death and resurrection, …
