Covenant Presbyterian Church

What We Believe

Vision

Connecting others to Christ as We Abide in Him

Mission Statement

For God’s glory, we celebrate health and growth in Jesus Christ so that all people may flourish in grace and truth.

Philosophy of Ministry

For God’s glory,
God is our focus. He is the gardener who grows his church. He is the shepherd of our souls. He is the personal creator who dwells in fellowship with Himself. God’s glory covers the earth and directs our efforts.

We celebrate health and growth in Jesus Christ
The gospel celebrates Christ and our new life in Him. As a Christ-centered, gospel-driven, grace-saturated ministry, we rejoice as children, students, and adults are transformed into a vibrant, growing community of faith through the work of the Holy Spirit.

So that all people
The church family at Covenant seeks to manifest the love of God by sharing the good news in word and deed with one another and our neighbors. We rejoice in the hope of eternal life through hospitality, fellowship, and service so that all may know Christ.

May flourish in grace and truth.
Connecting the riches of Christ to the realities of life allows everyone from infants to the elderly to flourish in their community and church. The scriptures guide our thoughts and actions as faith works in love through the Body of Christ.

History Of Covenant

The History of Covenant

Covenant Church was formed in 1965 out of a desire in the Auburn community for a Presbyterian Church faithful to the Word of God and committed to the historic understanding of the Reformed faith.
Meetings were first held in homes of interested families and later in the Woman’s Club on Sanders Street. On March 14, 1965, the interested families rented the Auburn Woman’s club for the first worship service which was held without a preacher.  Later that year on May 2, 1965, twenty-four people signed the church charter and the young church moved to the Auburn University campus.

On June 15, 1965, Bryant Black, a recent graduate of Covenant Theological Seminary, of St. louis, was named supply pastor. The church continued meeting at the Woman’s Club where only a pianist and song leader had song books.  When the Woman’s Club house became unavailable, the church began searching for other facilities for Sunday morning services.  They were welcomed to Auburn University campus in 1966.
