Mission and Vision

In this crucial time in church and culture, the Covenant Network remains committed to serving the church, believing that Jesus Christ has already made us one and that we are better equipped to carry out our larger ministry and witness when we are together. With the help of God’s grace, the Covenant Network of Presbyterians is called to strengthen the Church of Jesus Christ

  • by working for the unity of the church, seeking understanding and reconciliation, listening to voices long silenced, and fearlessly engaging in conversations for the sake of faithfulness to the gospel of Jesus Christ;
  • by furthering the inclusion of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender or queer (LGBTQ) persons in the church; and by joining with others seeking a still more just and inclusive church;
  • by offering prophetic witness, developing theological resources, and cultivating partnerships for learning and action.
The Covenant Network of Presbyterians is a broad-based, national group of clergy and lay leaders working for a church that is simultaneously faithful, just, and whole. We seek to support the mission and unity of the Presbyterian Church (USA) in a time of potentially divisive controversy. We intend to articulate and act on the church’s historic, progressive vision and to work for a fully inclusive church.

We seek to live out the Reformed faith found in Scripture and our confessions, and in our life together to follow the principles laid out in the Call to Covenant Community. We strive to proclaim and embody the gospel as we have learned it from the life and ministry of Jesus; we affirm the centrality of the Bible in our church; and we value the dynamic tension between unity and diversity. The Call to Covenant Community has been affirmed by more than 20 former Moderators, more than 3,000 ministers, 2,000 other officers, 300+ sessions, and several presbyteries.
