From a Biblical perspective, a covenant is a sacred bond, a serious relationship built on promises. When entering that sacred bond, we enter a community of diverse individuals held together in unity by a few common beliefs, practices, and goals, promising that we will make that unity more important than our personal preferences and individual motivations. Being in covenant also means that we will work for one another’s benefit, not ours own alone.
The community at Covenant is typically made up of families belonging to 60 or more different churches of different denominational affiliations, as well as families from different ethnic and socioeconomic backgrounds. To help maintain unity in a diverse community, Covenant families affirm a common Statement of Faith, which we believe is consistent with the broad boundaries of Christian orthodoxy and sets a good foundation for the practices and goals of the school.
