We are a community of believers in the Son of God, Jesus Christ, desiring to live in appreciation of God’s grace. His grace has the power to change and use our lives so others will experience God through us. Our desire is to reflect God’s grace and mercy to every person we encounter in the world. In every aspect of life, we want God’s will be done and His kingdom to be seen here on earth. Father - your will be done here on earth as it is in heaven is our prayer.
As God’s co-workers we urge you not to receive God’s grace in vain. 2 Corinthians 6:1
OUR PERSONAL QUEST
On this journey of life together, God is manifesting His story through us. Believers are learning to persevere through challenges and troubles, joys and sorrows. We are being taught to be thankful in all things. God is in control; sovereign over all. The key to our greater confidence in God is faith in Him. We are aware of the need for more knowledge of God through Jesus Christ, our Lord.
Grace and peace be yours in abundance through the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord.
2 Peter 1:2
GOD’S PURPOSE AND PLAN FROM THE BEGINNING
God has elevated every believer to the role of His co-worker and as an ambassador for Jesus. In doing so, God uses us by His Spirit to reveal His presence and power to dispense compassion to everyone. We have no favorites. Salvation is for everyone!
• GOD’S PURPOSE - God is love. God offers a relationship to everyone. His desire is a restored relationship with all of Creation.
For the grace of God has appeared that offers salvation to all people. Titus 2:11
• GOD’S PLAN - God has a plan in how each one of us fits into His purpose of bringing salvation to the world. We all have a role that was set in motion before we were born. Our journey together is to encourage one another to faithfully and devoutly personalize God’s plan.
For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Jeremiah 29:11
COV VISION AND MISSION
Modeling lives with transformed hearts that encourage and lead every person to “Live God’s Purpose and Plan”.
Become God’s influencers dispensing His grace and mercy wherever He leads us, as we rely on His Holy Spirit to empower, lead, guide and direct in accordance with God’s will.
We believe we are to experience faith in Jesus together. Acts 2 is the foundation of how life we experience life through Christ.
They devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and to fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer. 43 Everyone was filled with awe at the many wonders and signs performed by the apostles. 44 All the believers were together and had everything in common. 45 They sold property and possessions to give to anyone who had need. 46 Every day they continued to meet together in the temple courts. They broke bread in their homes and ate together with glad and sincere hearts, 47 praising God and enjoying the favor of all the people. And the Lord added to their number daily those who were being saved.
1.) Worship and Prayer
Worship and prayer are two actions that reveal our trust in our Almighty God. In this we are glorying God and get to experience His presence.
“To the breaking of bread and prayer”
We believe no person should be left alone. It is on us to be there to meet the needs of the community. God is our enabler and will supply what we need when we need it.
“They devoted themselves to…fellowship. All the believers were together and had everything in common.”
Growing in our knowledge of God and Jesus our Lord is a priority at COV. Knowing more will lead us to a life of grace and peace no matter the situation.
“They devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching…”
The COV Community is committed to bringing God’s grace and message of salvation to the world. We do not want to receive God’s grace in vain.
“…praising God and enjoying the favor of all the people. And the Lord added to their number daily those who were being saved.”
