About The Family

We are a community of faith in St. Petersburg, Florida striving to love God, one another, and the world around us. As God continues to lead and guide us, we strive to be a people known by our love who bring hope by the way we live and the message we carry.

VALUES

WHAT WE DEEM AS IMPORTANT

Who we are as a community of faith shows forth in our values and culture that are based on God’s Word and example of Jesus.  We believe that God has called us to adhere to six priorities set forth by Christ: Centrality of God’s Word, Prayerful Dependence, Biblical Group Image, Intentional Friendships, an Atmosphere of Love, and a Right Concept of Christ, Himself.

BELIEFS

WHAT WE HOLD TO FIRMLY

As believers and followers of Jesus Christ, our beliefs are divided into two groups: ancient truths which we hold firmly and deeply that unite us together, as well as personal beliefs on which we are free to discuss openly that do not jeapordize the centrality of God’s message of salvation.  Faith Covenant Church is part of the Evangelical Covenant Church, which means that we agree with and share the same statement of faith that defines us as a congregation.
