Christ Covenant Church is an Evangelical Church. The word “evangelical” comes from a Greek word in the New Testament:euangelion. This word literally means “good (eu) message (angelia)” and hence, “the Good News”. Our English word gospel comes from the German words Gott spiel, meaning “God’s play” or “God’s game”. This was rendered in Old English as godspell: God’s story. Hence the Gospel is God’s story, the Good News of salvation in Jesus Christ. As an evangelical congregation, Christ Covenant Church is a “good news church,” committed to God’s story of salvation, by grace and through faith, in Jesus Christ.
For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast. For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them. (Ephesians 2:8-10)
Here on this webpage, we have included a couple of summary presentations of what the Gospel message is. In truth, the Gospel is the whole story of God’s creation, man’s fall into sin, redemption in Christ and the restoration of all things to their original glory, through the saving work of Jesus Christ. In other words, the Gospel is God’s story, recounted for us in the Bible, from Genesis 1:1 to Revelation 22:21.
But in terms of what we must know, believe and do, in order to be saved from our sins, the Gospel is summarized in the “gospel message” of faith in Christ. Presented here are two short video presentations of salvation in Christ: What Is the Gospel? by Acts 17 Apologetics, and a gospel presentation by Matt Chandler. These are made available to you to help you in your search for forgiveness, eternal life, and the desire to become part of the God Story.

For Christ also suffered once for sins, the righteous for the unrighteous, that he might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh but made alive in the spirit.
(1 Peter 3:18)
