COV is Passionately committed to:
Inviting everyone to experience the incomparable hope of the Gospel of Jesus: cultivating environments hospitable to people at every stage of life.
Matthew 28:19-20 (NIV) 19 Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”
Gal 3:26 (NIV) 26 So in Christ Jesus you are all children of God through faith, for all of you who were baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves with Christ.
Sharing in a joyful journey; immersing ourselves in the beauty and practicality of scripture.
2 Timothy 3:16-17 (NIV) All scripture is God breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the servant of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.
Growing God’s family by embracing authentic relationships with each other and our community.
2 Cor 1:12 (NIV) Now this is our boast: Our conscience testifies that we have conducted ourselves in the world, and especially in our relations with you, with integrity and godly sincerity. We have done so, relying not on worldly wisdom but on God’s grace.
Practicing sacrificial love toward one another through pastoral and congregational care.
1 John 3:11 (NIV) The message you heard from the very beginning is this: we must love one another.
John 13:34 (NIV) And now I give you a new commandment: love one another. As I have loved you,
so you must love one another.
Thriving in a Jesus-centered life of worship and ministry.
James 2: 14-22 (NIV) What good is it, my brothers, if someone says he has faith but does not have works?
Can that faith save him? If a brother or sister is poorly clothed and lacking in daily food and one of you says to them, “Go in peace, be warmed and filled,” without giving them the things needed for the body, what good is that? So also faith by itself, if it does not have works, is dead.
