DENOMINATIONAL AFFILIATION

SOLID ROCK'S CONNECTION TO THE WIDER CHURCH

Solid Rock is a Covenant School of Discipleship with the Evangelical Covenant Church.

The Evangelical Covenant Church

Founded in 1885 by Swedish immigrants, today the Evangelical Covenant Church (ECC) is a growing, multiethnic, intergenerational mosaic of churches with ministry partnerships in nearly forty countries. The ECC seeks to join God's efforts in the hope of seeing more people engage in a personal relationship with God through Jesus Christ, across more populations, in a more caring and just world.

The Evangelical Covenant Church is:

  • Evangelical, but not exclusive

  • Biblical, but not doctrinaire

  • Traditional, but not rigid

  • Congregational, but not independent


The ECC's essential beliefs are summed up in what are called Covenant Affirmations:

  • We affirm the centrality of the word of God.

  • We affirm the necessity of the new birth.

  • We affirm a commitment to the whole mission of the church.

  • We affirm the church as a fellowship of believers.

  • We affirm a conscious dependence on the Holy Spirit.

  • We affirm the reality of freedom in Christ.


The Northwest Conference

The Northwest Conference (NWC) is a mission region of the Evangelical Covenant Church. It is comprised of approximately 140 churches in Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota, and Wisconsin.

Lake Beauty Ministries is one of the five camping ministries that serves NWC churches.
