•OUR DENOMINATION AND BELIEFS
Redwood Covenant Church is a member of the Evangelical Covenant Church (ECC).
The Evangelical Covenant Church is 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 in 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 remains faithful to the vision of earlier Christians who sought a personal relationship with Jesus as Lord and Savior, and found no other authority for the conduct of their lives, than that which God’s word has revealed in His scriptures.
•Evangelical, but not exclusive
•Biblical, but not doctrinaire
•Traditional, but not rigid
•Congregational, but not independent
The Evangelical Covenant Church Denomination is committed to:

•Calling forth and equipping women and men for all levels of church leadership.
