Our Mission & Vision
Our mission is to connect people in Christ
From its inception, Covenant Methodist has been about connection. We believe that connections form through relationships we have with each other, with our community, and with Jesus.
We envision a community both connected and continually connecting in Christ.
Vision & Purpose
Community connecting in Christ
We believe in stripping away pretense and allowing ourselves to be “real” because, in this vulnerable space, a deeper and more meaningful connection develops allowing us to grow in our faith.
We commit ourselves to act as examples of Christ’s love in all of our day-to-day interactions—with our families, our neighbors, in our schools, at our workplaces, on the ballfield, in the local stores—anywhere we find ourselves. We pledge to respond to others with love, peace, forgiveness, joy, and hope. As a church, Covenant Methodist will be a partner the community can rely on to provide support, sanctuary, and partnership.
We are not perfect, but through the strength of our relationships, we walk a path towards greater holiness, sharing life with each other along the way.
Our vision extends beyond the walls of this facility. We believe that if we each endeavor to live out Christ’s love in our community, the community itself would be transformed. Inspired by our example, others may draw closer to God.
What would this transformed community look like? People could step out from behind pretense and status
Our Core Values
Our Core Values
While we’re serious about our faith, you’ll find we don’t take ourselves too seriously. We are warm and approachable. We love a good laugh or conversation. Covenant feels like coming home. It feels like
Maybe it’s because we’ve been a mobile church for years, but we’re pretty good seeing opportunity instead of obstacle. Our flexibility positioned us to be one of the first churches on the ground, serving our neighbors when Hurricane Harvey hit.
We exist “in the community, for the community.” We are not here to serve our members, but to be a beacon of God’s love in our community. We designed our facility based on community desires and have dedicated it to become a community hub. We continue to build missions around the needs of the community, and hope to always be a partner the community can depend on.
We believe that all ages benefit when we worship and serve together as a church family. Intergenerational relationships provide unique experiences and understanding.
One church – two languages
Covenant is honored to extend our ministry to both English and Spanish-speakers. We intentionally seek opportunities to foster relationships and a sense of family among people regardless of their primary language.

Grace—Given, not earned
Faith and Good Works
Faith and good works belong together. What we believe must be confirmed by what we do. Personal salvation must be expressed in ministry and mission in the world. We believe that Christian doctrine and Christian ethics are inseparable, that faith should inspire service. The integration of personal piety and social holiness has been a hallmark of our tradition. We affirm the biblical precept that “faith by itself, if it has no works, is dead” (James 2:17).
