Welcome to the Evangelical Covenant Church of Springfield online. Our mission at ECC is to help people develop a thriving relationship with Jesus Christ. We accomplish this mission by helping people connect with Christ and with others, helping them grow in their relationship with Christ and helping them serve Christ by serving others. 


This welcome message is from the people of ECC.  We desire to get to know you better, share our faith and to serve you as you search out a church home.  Meeting new people and entering a new church can be stressful.

SnapshotWhat We Believe

We are an evangelical church, and we believe and boldly proclaim the good news of Jesus Christ. We hold as central to our life and thought the following affirmations that flow from our denomination’s Covenant Affirmations. (For more information on the national Evangelical Covenant Church, please visit www.covchurch.org.)
The Bible, both Old and New Testaments, is the Word of God and the only perfect rule for faith, doctrine, and conduct (II Timothy 3:16).
Jesus said to Nicodemus, “No one can see the kingdom of God unless he is born again” (John 3:3, NIV). The Apostle Paul wrote, “If anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation” (2 Corinthians 5:17). New birth in Christ means committing ourselves to him and receiving forgiveness, acceptance, and eternal life. It means being alive in Christ, and this life has the qualities of love and righteousness, joy and peace. New birth is only the beginning. Growing to maturity in Christ is a lifelong process for both individuals and communities of believers. God forms and transforms us, and it is through people transformed by Christ that God transforms the world.
Established by the good news and grace of Jesus Christ, the Church exists to fulfill the mission given by Jesus Christ, known as the Great Commission (Matthew 28:18-20). As Christ’s representatives in the world, the Church is to be an agent of grace, entrusted with the message of reconciliation, hope, compassion, justice, and peace.
The Covenant Church, rooted in historic Christianity, affirms one God as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. According to the Gospel of John, Jesus promised that His Spirit would live in His followers as a result of His crucifixion and resurrection. The Spirit “lives with you and will be in you,” Jesus said (John 14:17). The Holy Spirit empowers us to continue Christ’s mission in the world (Acts 1:8), comforts us in times of sorrow, inspires our prayer and worship, and gives us each gifts to enable the church’s unified ministry in Jesus’ name.
Jesus sets us free from the power of sin to condemn, control, and destroy (Galatians 5:1). We are not without sin but find in Jesus’ death and resurrection release from the bondage and punishment of sin. We are also set free to follow and serve Jesus, as led by the Spirit’s power and under the guidance of scripture. We are set free from the power of those things that on their own tend to divide. United in Christ, we offer freedom to one another to differ on issues of belief or practice where the Biblical witness seems to allow for a variety of interpretations of the will and purposes of God. We seek to focus on what unites us as followers of Christ, rather than on what divides us.
