Bethel Evangelical Covenant Church is a part of the Alaska Conference of the Evangelical Covenant Church.
The Evangelical Covenant Church (ECC) is a rapidly growing multiethnic denomination in the United States and Canada with ministries on five continents of the world. Founded in 1885 by Swedish immigrants, the ECC values the Bible as the word of God, the gift of God's grace and ever deepening spiritual life that comes through a faith with Jesus Christ, the importance of extending God's love and compassion to a hurting world, and the strength that comes from unity within diversity.
The Evangelical Covenant Church is evangelical, but not exclusive; biblical, but not doctrinaire; traditional, but not rigid; and congregational, but not independent.
We are united by Christ in a holy covenant of churches empowered by the Hoy Spirit to obey the great commandments and the great comission: to love God with all our hearts, souls, strength, and mind, to love our neighbors as ourselves, and to go into all the world and make disciples.
We covenant to cultivate communities of worship committed to: prayer, preaching, and study of the word; the celebration of the sacraments; and fellowship across gender, race, age, culture, and class. And we covenant to equip loving, growing Christians to reach out with the good news of Jesus Christ - evangelizing the lost, ministering to those in need, and seeking justice for the oppressed.
