Who We Are


You are the object of God’s love and He has a great plan for your life.

 

Jesus gave this great promise… "I came that they might have life, and might have it abundantly" [that it might be full and meaningful] (John 10:10)

An abundant life means one that is full and meaningful. Why is it that most people are not experiencing the abundant life? Because...

Man was created to have fellowship with God; but because of his stubborn self-will, he chose to go his own independent way, and fellowship with God was broken. Because of this separation from God we cannot experience the powerful love and remarkable plan that He has for our lives. All of mankind is included in this condition. "All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God" (Romans 3:23). "The wages of sin is death" (Romans 6:23). Death means ‘spiritual separation’ from God.

This self-will, characterized by an attitude of active rebellion or passive indifference, is an evidence of what the Bible calls sin. There is only one way to bridge the gulf that exists between a holy God and sinful man…

 

Jesus Christ is God's only provision for man's sin. Through Him you can know and experience God's love and plan for your life. Though innocent of any sin, He died in our place.

He then demonstrated his victory over death by rising from the dead. "Christ died for our sins...He was buried...He was raised on the third day, according to the Scriptures...He appeared to Peter, then to the twelve. After that He appeared to more than five hundred..." (1 Corinthians 15:3-6) He is the only way to God.

 

So what do we do when we realize the truth about Jesus? It is not enough just to know about the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus...

We must individually and intentionally receive Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord; then we can know and experience God's love and plan for our lives.

Receiving Christ means accepting all that He has done for you. "As many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, even to those who believe in His name" (John 1:12)

We receive Jesus as an act of faith in His finished work, not by our own power. "By grace you have been saved through faith; and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God; not as a result of works, that no one should boast" (Ephesians 2:8,9)
When we receive Christ, we experience a new birth. In other words, our spirit is reborn and we become a new persons. (John 3:1-8) “Therefore if anyone is in Christ Jesus, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come.” (I Corinthians 5:17)

God promises to fill us with His Holy Spirt and empower us to live a life of victory over sin and to be witnesses of His presence. "You will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes upon you and you will be my witnesses." (Acts 1:8) "They were all filled with the Holy Spirit..." (Acts 2:4)

We receive Jesus by personal invitation.

 

Receiving Jesus involves turning to God from self (repentance) and trusting Christ to come into our lives to forgive our sins and to make us all He wants us to be.



Would you like to know Jesus today?Pray from your heart a prayer like this – 'Lord Jesus, I realize that I am a sinner and I need your forgiveness. I repent of my sins. I thank you for the sacrifice you paid so that I might be made complete. I give you control my life and accept you as my Lord and Savior. Fill me today with your Holy Spirit and give me power to the walk this walk. In Jesus Name.'

Diversity is probably the best word to describe the worship at The Church At Covington. Praise teams, choirs, bands, seasonal musicals, contemporary, black gospel, praise and worship and maybe even a quartet from time to time-that's what you will experience in a worship service at TCAC.  But first and foremost-worship is not about us but about Him.  Worship is an expression of our love to Jesus Christ and it first begins in our daily walk with Him. The Word tells us that we are to not to forsake the assembling of ourselves together in worship. There is power in corporate worship.  The demonstration of the Spirit of God in our service is not a planned or orchestrated activity. We welcome His manifestation. We also believe in following the leading of the Holy Spirit in all aspects of our services and lives. Our worship is based on the following Biblical principles:

  • Acts 4:24 - "they lifted up their voice to God with one accord..." At TCAC, we pray together out loud.
  • Psalms 134:2 - "Lift up your hands in the sanctuary and bless the Lord." therefore, we lift our hands in praise.
  • Psalms 98:4 - "Make a joyful noise unto the Lord all the earth: make a loud noise, and rejoice, and sing praise." Thus, we sing with all of our hearts.
  • II Samuel 6:5 - "...and all the house of Israel played before the Lord on all manner of instruments." Skillfully, we play musical instruments.
  • Psalm 47:1 - "...O clap your hands all ye people; shout unto God with the voice of triumph." Gladly, we clap and shout unto the Lord Jesus Christ.
  • Psalm 150:4 - "...Praise Him with the timbrel and dance; praise Him with stringed instruments and organs." Joyfully, we dance in the Spirit.
  • Psalm 22:22 - "I will declare Thy name unto my brethren: in the midst of the congregation will I praise Thee." therefore, we testify publicly.
  • James 5:14 - "Is any sick among you? Let him call for the elders of the church; and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord." With faith, we anoint with oil and pray for the healing of the sick
