Mission Statement

At First Covenant Church of Saint Paul, we are an increasingly intercultural, intergenerational, and economically diverse congregation, gathering from the East Side and greater metropolitan communities, uniting as the body of Christ to fulfill Jesus' Great Command: to love God and love our neighbors.

Our Intergenerational and Intercultural Values

  • Authentic Discipleship
    Connecting God’s people to God’s Word, in prayer, with one another, and the world, so that, empowered by the Holy Spirit, we further the kinship of God.

  • Commitment to Children, Youth, and Families
    Inspiring children, youth, and families to belong, believe, and become lifelong followers of Christ.

  • Community Transformation
    Building bridges with key partners and cultures to bring about spiritual, physical, emotional, and economic well-being.

  • Genuine Reconciling Relationships
    Loving each other as God loves us, living into the truth that in Christ all are reconciled.

  • Missional Outlook
    Continuing our legacy as mission friends and mobilizing people to serve locally and globally.

  • Vibrant Worship
    Rich in many traditions and creativity, gathering for life-giving worship that brings glory to God.
