Our Denomination

The mission of ECO: A Covenant Order of Evangelical Presbyterians is to build flourishing churches that make disciples of Jesus Christ. We seek to be a movement, not just a denomination.


These are the foundations that propel us forward. The name ECO is not an acronym. It reinforces our passion for strengthening the ecosystems of local churches. We believe the church is a living organism that needs life-giving resources to help it grow, thrive, and multiply. ECO is committed to cultivating a healthy, diverse, resource-rich ecosystem where pastors and congregations can flourish.


How to Become a Covenant Partner (Member)

First, you simply need to tell us that you are interested in becoming a member or covenant partner.  You can do this by checking off the box when you register your attendance, by talking with any staff member, or by contacting the church office during the week.  Or, just send a message to:


Second, you will be asked to affirm your faith in a meeting with Pastor and some of the church's Elders.


Third, you will need to affirm your faith before the church family and, if necessary, be baptized.


Fourth, you will need to attend one of the quarterly classes which are designed specifically to get you grounded in your faith and in your commitment to your new church family; teaching you how to study the Bible, how to pray, and discovering the gifts you have to share with others. We will encourage you to stay true to Jesus in those times when it's hard to do so, by being part of your extended family.
