Our Distinctives

Our Vision

Missionary Family

 
Scripture teaches that all believers, not just clergy, are actually priests who are empowered by the Holy Spirit and equipped with the gospel message of Jesus. (1 Peter 2:5-9) Our desire is that the primary “doing” of Covenant Shreveport would be that all who are a part of the church would see themselves as missionaries in their neighborhoods, workplaces and schools. We desire to be a people who gather together to worship God and encourage one-another, but then scatter to live lives on mission in the everyday, seeking to both declare and demonstrate the gospel in all we do.
Our Worship

Modern Liturgical

The goal of Christian worship is to give glory and honor to God, our author, and sustainer. During our Sunday worship gatherings, we are seeking in all ways to direct our attention and affection to God through prayer, singing, the proclamation of the gospel, the reading of Scripture and the sacraments (communion and baptism).
Our Theology

Gospel-Centered

We are all about Jesus, his good news message and his mission. Our beliefs are Biblical and mainstream, and we align with these classical Christian faith statements:
 
The Apostles Creed
The Nicene Creed
 
While are roots are in the Baptist tradition, our community includes people from a variety of denominational backgrounds. We welcome all because our primary banner is that of Christ who calls us all out of darkness and into his marvelous light. (1 Peter 2:9)
Our Mission

Discipleship-Focused

Scripture teaches that Christ’s mission for his church is to go and make disciples. (Matthew 28:16-20) Disciples are simply individuals who have placed their faith in Christ as their Savior and are, as a result, seeking to pattern their lives after his example. To this end, a disciple is a learner, and Christ is the one whom they are seeking to learn. Our discipleship process revolves around four key experiences:
 
  • Life together in a gospel-centered community
  • Biblical teaching
  • Personal coaching
  • Actualization of calling
Our Structure

Elder-lead

Covenant Shreveport is led by a plurality of pastor/elders who each operate within their individual gifting to give leadership to an area of focus within the church. These leaders operate as peers within the organizational structure embracing a horizontal or “out front” leadership model rather than a “top down” model. As such, Covenant does not have a singular “Senior Pastor” or “Lead Pastor,” but, instead, a pastoral team that leads and teaches.
MISSION STATMENT

Covenant Shreveport exists to join God in His mission of reconciliation by declaring and demonstrating the gospel of Jesus in all of life.
