Our Story

Covenant Shreveport was launched by a group of families commissioned by The Covenant Church in Bossier City, Louisiana.

After over a year of meeting in homes on Sunday evenings, we launched weekly, Sunday-morning worship in October of 2019. We are best categorized as a gospel-centered, liturgical church in the classical Protestant tradition. We are also highly missional in that we believe strongly that the primary experience of church should not simply be about attending a religious event, but rather living life together in a community that is on mission for Jesus in the everyday. We also believe that Jesus has called us to go and make disciples of all nations, and that starts right here in Shreveport. So, to that end, we are very much focused on seeking to love our neighbors well and bring good news to the places where we live, work and play.

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, confession, the proclamation of the gospel, the reading of Scripture, and the sacraments (communion and baptism).

Our Theology:

We are all about Jesus, His good news message and His mission. Our beliefs are Biblical, trinitarian, and mainstream, and our primary statement of faith is the historic Nicene Creed. 

The Nicene Creed

We believe in one God, the Father, the Almighty, maker of heaven and earth, of all that is, seen and unseen. We believe in one Lord, Jesus Christ, the only Son of God, eternally begotten of the Father, God from God, Light from Light, true God from true God, begotten, not made, of one Being with the Father. Through him all things were made. For us and for our salvation he came down from heaven: by the power of the Holy Spirit he became incarnate from the Virgin Mary, and was made man. For our sake he was crucified under Pontius Pilate; he suffered death and was buried. On the third day he rose again in accordance with the Scriptures; he ascended into heaven and is seated at the right hand of the Father. He will come again in glory to judge the living and the dead, and his kingdom will have no end. We believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the giver of life, who proceeds from the Father and the Son. With the Father and the Son he is worshiped and glorified. He has spoken through the Prophets. We believe in one holy catholic and apostolic Church. We acknowledge one baptism for the forgiveness of sins. We look for the resurrection of the dead, and the life of the world to come. Amen.

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-Led

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.
