About Us

Our mission and our values demonstrate who we are and flow from what we believe.

Our Mission

“We exist to glorify God by multiplying and maturing disciples of Jesus Christ in the power of the Holy Spirit.”


Glorify God

We exist to bring glory to God and to proclaim the glorious truth that Jesus Christ died for sinners. Through the grace of God, we have been rescued from our sin and adopted into his family. Salvation through Christ is the driving influence in our church’s preaching, worship, community groups, and outreach. He is worthy of endless praise.

Disciples of Jesus

At Covenant of Grace, we are ordinary people sent by God to make disciples of Jesus. We multiply disciples by proclaiming the gospel and maturing them through biblical teaching. It is our joy to grow together and to proclaim the saving work of Jesus Christ that others might find everlasting joy.



In the Power of the Holy Spirit

Through the Holy Spirit, we have been brought into fellowship with God. The Holy Spirit continually works in our lives, gifting every believer to do God’s will through his presence. We walk by the Spirit that we might obey and proclaim Christ.

Here's What We Value as a Church

The core values of any organization reflects who it is and what it believes. At Covenant of Grace Church, we have seven core values we share with the churches of Sovereign Grace Churches.


We believe that the gospel—the good news of God’s saving activity in Jesus Christ—is the pinnacle of His redemptive acts, the center of the Bible’s story, and the essential message for our faith, life, and witness. We are committed to preaching the gospel, singing the gospel, praying the gospel, counseling out of the gospel, and building our churches upon the gospel.


Scripture presents the all-glorious, triune God as the source and end of all things, sovereignly working all things according to His will. At the center of God’s purposes in the world is the exaltation of His glory through the redemption of sinners. God’s sovereign grace in salvation humbles us, fills us with gratitude, and compels us to worship him and share the message of His grace to all people.


We believe the Holy Spirit desires to continually fill each believer with increased power for Christian life and witness, including the giving of His supernatural gifts for the building up of the church and for various works of ministry in the world. We are eager to pursue God’s active presence in all its breadth so that Christ may be magnified in our lives, in the church, and among the nations.


We believe it was God’s glorious plan to create men and women in His image, giving them equal dignity and value in His sight, while appointing differing and complementary roles for them within the home and the church. Because these roles give different expressions to God’s image in humanity, they should be valued and pursued in joy and faith.


Jesus Christ reigns as head over His church, giving to His church elders (or pastors) to govern and lead local churches under His authority. We believe that men, qualified by both character and gifting, are to serve as elders, shepherding God’s people as under-shepherds of Christ.

Outreach & Mission

Our gospel-centrality entails not only treasuring the gospel personally but sharing it passionately. The risen Christ commissioned His church to make disciples of all nations. We believe this commission falls to all believers and that it is fulfilled in a primary way through church planting, whereby the gospel is proclaimed and converts are formed into communities of disciples.


The New Testament testifies to a vibrant interdependence among churches in the first century. We seek to express a similar interdependence through our common fellowship, mission, and governance. Our fellowship extends beyond mere denominational affiliation; we are committed to applying the gospel together in relationships that foster mutual encouragement, care, and a glad pursuit of Christlikeness.

Our Shaping Virtues

As part of the Sovereign Grace family of churches, our explicit gospel-focus has led us to value seven particular Shaping Virtues as a denomination: humility, joy, gratitude, encouragement, generosity, servanthood, and godliness. Discover how we live these out together.


We enjoy a rich relationship with churches in the Greater Akron area and around the globe. Our closest ties are with the sister churches in our denomination, Sovereign Grace Churches. We partner together to care for one another and advance the gospel, allowing us to do far more together than we ever could alone.
