The EPC Covenant
We believe that God creates and calls us; Jesus reconciles and redeems us; the Spirit energizes and empowers us for worship, love, and service. In response to God’s love and forgiveness, we pledge to inspire each other to prayer, study, and stewardship, to cultivate an open, caring church where diverse gifts are discovered, respected, and employed; to minister faithfully to the poor, lonely, sick, and those in need; to reach out, sharing our faith, inviting and welcoming others into our fellowship; and to seek justice and healing in the church, community, and world.
Commitment to Social Justice
As Christians and Presbyterians we believe that all people belong to the body of Christ and are deeply loved by God, regardless of race, culture, gender, sexual orientation, economic status and physical and mental abilities. Thus, we feel called by God to commit to social justice endeavors and care for the marginalized by seeking ways to dismantle racism, be inclusive and welcoming of the LGBQT + community, eradicate poverty and work for the equality and equity of all those who’ve been denied those rights.
