OUR VISION


Our vision at The Cov Church International is Reaching the Nations for Christ… One Heart at a Time in order to fulfill divine destiny and purpose in the earth. To our family, that means that we wholeheartedly desire that our beliefs, mindsets, practices, behaviors and our culture within our community should and will reflect the Heart of our loving Father. God desires that we not only receive the gift of salvation through Jesus’ Christ, but also be healed from all brokenness and infirmity. Our passion is based upon our faith in God to fulfill both individual and our collective purposes on earth as referenced in Matthew 28:18-20, Luke 4:18 and Romans 8:28. We acknowledge this vision through our directives to: REACH Them TEACH Them LEAD Them Into DIVINE DESTINY in Jesus Christ!

 

 

 


  

REACH.  TEACH.  LEAD.  DESTINY.

OUR CORE VALUES

LOVE - God IS LOVE, so our foundation as believers in Christ Jesus is rooted and developed in His agape love. It is our desire that we not only know God, but to experience the Father's unconditional love for us each and every day. We are very passionate about our expressions of love throughout our relationships with one another in our homes and church through giving and sharing, such that God's love is tangibly felt through us so that others will be drawn to Christ. Therefore, LOVE is vital to our Christian family experience.


FAMILY - In God's infinite wisdom, He created the world with family as core of His Kingdom. Our biblical-based family values lay the foundation for all relationships, including and beginning with our relationship with our Creator, God the Father as He reconciled us into personal relationship with Him through His Son Jesus Christ. It is essential that we focus on marriage and family in order to remain healthy and vital in advancing God's agenda on earth through meaningful, purposeful and relational family values here on earth.


DOCTRINE - Sound biblical doctrine is key component to growth, stability, and solid understanding of the Truth of God's plans and desires for us to live out our purpose and divine assignments. Sound doctrine therefore becomes our spiritual blueprint for all behaviors, attitudes, world-views and global perspectives in how we live out our mandate to Reach, Teach, Lead, others to their Destiny in Jesus Christ.

 

EQUIPPING - Ephesians 4 identifies the Church (Body) as needing to be "equipped" and discipled in order to be perfected in the things of God, that will produce oneness in His Church. Jesus left clear instructions and divinely purposed five-fold ministry gifts to carry out the roles to edify the Body of Christ until we all come into the unity of the faith. Equipping is training that not only empowers believers, but ensures purposeful (God-ordained) outcomes and successes that will produce oneness and unity.
