Our Name

Our Name

What’s in a name? Here is a quick look at what our name says about us:


We believe that God has established a gracious covenant with guilty sinners through the Lord Jesus Christ. To everyone who believes the gospel he says, “I will be your God and you will be my people.” This promise to us and to our children is at the heart of our church’s identity.


As disciples of Jesus Christ, our desire is to conform our beliefs and practices more and more to the straight standard of the Word of God. While seeking to be “Reformed and always reforming”, we look to the unchanging Scriptures as the infallible bedrock of our faith.


Our church is governed by a plurality of elders and is organically connected to a regional body of churches called a presbytery. (We are part of the Presbytery of Michigan and Ontario.) Multiple presbyteries, in turn, make up our denomination and work together for the advancement of Christ’s Kingdom.


In the Bible, the word “church” refers to the gathered people of God, not the building. Covenant Orthodox Presbyterian Church gathers together each Sunday to worship the Triune God, and then disperses throughout the week to be salt and light in the world.

Come, taste and see that the Lord is good!
