If you are looking to worship in a welcoming and friendly atmosphere, then we may be just what you are looking for.
Whether you are a spiritual seeker, not quite sure what you believe but interested in checking out Jesus Christ; or a seasoned believer, having followed Christ for church for many, many years, you are welcome here!
We are a community of Christians believing in the reality of God and of His love as directed toward us in Jesus Christ. Our purpose is to be a fellowship of believers, glorifying God, showing love towards others in our witness, resulting in fellowship marked by oneness in Christ.
We strive to be more than just “church goers” by learning to put our faith to work wherever we live. We are actively involved in our ministries and in the life of our church as a whole.
Heritage - Evangelical
The Covenant Church of Schaumburg is one of more than 850 Covenant Churches nationwide. The Evangelical Covenant Church (ECC) traces its roots to the Lutheran Church of Sweden more than 125 years ago. Since that time, Covenant Churches have formed worldwide, welcoming people from many different backgrounds.
The ECC is a rapidly growing multiethnic denomination in the United States and Canada with ministries in 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 celebrate a few essential convictions; among them, a personal relationship with Jesus Christ and the Bible as a roadmap for our daily lives.
We observe the sacraments of Holy Communion and Holy Baptism. We believe that God intends life to have a healthy balance of worship, study, and service.
We are centered in Christ. Without a formal creed, we affirm the centrality of the Old and New Testament Scriptures, the necessity of a personal decision concerning Jesus Christ, and the priority of the Church to “Make God Known” through the words, teachings, life example, and living presence of Jesus Christ. We are a fellowship of Believers, who are One in Faith and Hope, even as we are allowed the freedom to differ in conviction and conscience. Ours is a Fellowship marked by Oneness in Christ.
Believing in the reality of God and His Love as directed toward us in Jesus Christ, our purpose is to be a fellowship of believers, glorifying God, showing love towards others in our witness, resulting in fellowship marked by oneness in Christ.
