Vision, Mission & Values

Convergence is an Evangelical Covenant Church. The Evangelical Covenant Church (ECC) is a rapidly growing multi-ethnic 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 gifts of God’s grace and ever-deepening spiritual life that comes through 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 Church is:
Evangelical, but not exclusive
Biblical, but not doctrinaire
Traditional, but not rigid
Congregational, but not independent

Vision

Convergence is God converging with our lives, changing us to change the world.

Our Mission

Our mission is to:

Hear God,

Know God,

Respond to God.

We Value

Christ • Christ is the name above all names, our Lord and Savior who we worship.

Worship • We are to worship God with all of our bodies and respond to His love for us.

Scripture • We believe in the authority of the Bible.  It is the word of God.

Authenticity • If we can’t keep it real, it’s all a sham…

Diversity • Beauty is magnified and reconciliation abounds when different people come together (race, gender, generation, class).

Gathering/Community • Community and being together is an essential part of experiencing the breadth and depth of life and spirituality.  We gather big, we gather small.

Creation • All of humanity is created in the image of God and we choose to see the beauty and potential of His handiwork.

Mission • We all have a God-given purpose and hope to live that purpose out wholeheartedly.

Creativity • Everyone is creative and has the ability to lead, inspire, or do something that changes this world for the better.
