Our Extended Family: The ECC

Yes, we do belong to a denomination!  If the other Highrock churches are our immediate siblings, the Evangelical Covenant Church (or ECC) is our extended family. We love the Covenant and are excited to be partnering in this work of ministry. To find out more about the Covenant, check out the website at www.covchurch.org.

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. 

In short, the Evangelical Covenant Church is:

  • Evangelical, but not exclusive
  • Biblical, but not doctrinaire
  • Traditional, but not rigid
  • Congregational, but not independent
