Rochester Covenant Church

Our Mission at RCC is becoming a church that is:

R – Reflecting God’s Love

C – Centered on Christ

C – Caring for Community

Reflecting God’s Love: Reflecting the love that God has for all people, offering Hope to the world 

Centered on Christ: Jesus Christ is at our core. We are committed to knowing Him, loving God, loving others, and making disciples of all people

Caring for Community: A people who genuinely care about one another, seeking to build each other up, as well as reaching out into the wider community in service

2 Corinthians 3:18 NLT

So all of us who have had that veil removed can see and reflect the glory of the Lord. And the Lord—who is the Spirit—makes us more and more like him as we are changed into his glorious image.

RCC Values

The Bible:   The story of God in both the Old and New Testaments, made fully known in Jesus Christ, is at the heart of our preaching and teaching (2 Timothy 3:15-17, Luke 24:25-27)

Worship:   Our response to God’s love is to Worship God who loves us deeply (Psalm 100, Romans 12:1-2)

Active Faith:   We are committed to growing deeper in Christ, enabling us to reflect the love of God through caring for those in need, and serving our community (Matthew 5:13-17Matthew 22:37-38)

Relationships:   Knowing and being concerned for each other’s good are essential qualities for our fellowship; we desire to have loving relationships that span the generations (John 13:34-35, Galatians 5:13)

Families:   We have a deep desire to help strengthen and support families so they can thrive and be filled with hope (Luke 18:15-17, Ephesians 1:17-19)

Our Denomination

We are a member of the Evangelical Covenant Church, 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.  The Evangelical Covenant Church is:

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

We sum up our essential beliefs in what we call Covenant affirmations:

  • We affirm the centrality of the word of God.
  • We affirm the necessity of new birth.
  • We affirm a commitment to the whole mission of the Church.
  • We affirm the Church as a fellowship of believers.
  • We affirm a conscious dependence on the Holy Spirit.
  • We affirm the reality of freedom in Christ.
