About Christ Covenant Church
Christ Covenant Church has been ministering in Charlotte and around the world for more than 25 years. Founded as a mission plant of Briarwood Presbyterian Church in Birmingham, Alabama, Christ Covenant now has daughter churches of its own in this region and beyond.
We believe in the Triune God — Father, Son and Holy Spirit. We believe that people are saved by grace alone through faith alone and we believe that the Bible is God-breathed and our only infallible rule for faith and life.
Christ Covenant Church is a member of the Presbyterian Church in America. We welcome the fellowship of all believers.
Vision of Christ Covenant
Christ Covenant Church is a reformed congregation of the Presbyterian Church in America committed to making disciples who worship God, grow in community, love others, and serve the world.
Christ Covenant Church seeks to develop disciples of Jesus Christ by helping them move toward spiritual maturity.
We will enable people to encounter the living God in the context of His worshipping community and to hear the proclamation of the Gospel in its full counsel.
Grow in Community
We will encourage those who have come to saving faith to become members of Christ Covenant Church and enfold them into a class or small group in order to learn and apply God's Word to their lives.
We will equip members for deeper and more practical levels of discipleship as they learn to love Christ and others more deeply and to live out the gospel in every arena of life.
Serve the World
We will engage members in the advance of the Kingdom of God, both near and far, by sharing the gospel in the power of the Holy Spirit with lost persons and by reflecting the beauty and holiness of Christ to lost cultures.

Christ Covenant Church - Our 13 Goals
The Session of Christ Covenant Church has set forth thirteen spiritual and ministry goals to pursue through 2020 and has directed the senior pastor and his staff to move toward these goals in a concentrated effort. The elders are asking the members of our congregation to join with the leadership of the church in pursuing these goals in prayer, with resources, and in personal involvement, all to the glory of God and the honor of Christ.
