Covenant Shreveport Story
Covenant Shreveport was launched in 2018 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 began gathering for weekly Sunday morning worship in October of 2019. We are best categorized as a gospel-centered, missional church with roots in the Baptist tradition. 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 neighborhood focused, seeking to love our neighbors well and bring good news to the places where we live, work and play.
- Life together in a gospel-centered community
- Biblical teaching
- Personal coaching
- Actualization of calling
Covenant Shreveport exists to join God in His mission of reconciliation by declaring and demonstrating the gospel of Jesus in all of life.
On the last Sunday of each month our entire church family gathers to share a meal and enjoy time together. This is a great way to get to know our community, and everyone is welcome.
