THE EVANGELICAL COVENANT CHURCH
The Evangelical Covenant Church is a rapidly growing multiethnic denomination of more than 800 congregations 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 Covenant’s vision for mission is to cultivate communities of worship committed to: prayer, preaching, and study of the word; the celebration of the sacraments; and fellowship across gender, race, age, culture, and class and to equip loving, giving, growing Christians to reach out with the good news of Jesus Christ - evangelizing the lost, ministering to those in need, and seeking justice for the oppressed.
Trinity Church began in 1955 as a result of the Greater Greensboro Billy Graham Crusade. Today, Trinity Church is a part of the Evangelical Covenant Church and continues to build on the original foundation of Biblical truth: Christian faith lived out in everyday experience, a heart for evangelism, and a desire to be part of the global Christian body of Christ.
