About Covenant Fellowship RPC
Covenant Fellowship is a congregation of the Reformed Presbyterian Church of North America that has served Wilkinsburg since 1833. We are committed to the doctrines of the historic Reformed faith:
The Bible alone is the true word of God.
Christ alone is able to save us from sin.
God’s grace alone rescues us from enslavement to sin.
Faith alone is necessary for salvation.
God’s glory alone is the purpose for which we live.
Commitment to the Gospel
The preaching is straight from the Bible. Every Sunday, we gather in God-centered worship to hear how Christ’s work on the cross frees us to overcome sin and glorify God.
Commitment to the Community
The gospel not only reconciles people to God, but also to one another. We are committed to serving our communities and being a multiracial and international fellowship, modeling biblical reconciliation and unity in diversity.
Our beliefs all stem from a full commitment to the authority of the Bible as the inerrant, infallible Word of God. This means that we believe in the Triune God: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. We acknowledge our total inability to save ourselves and, in faith, depend on Christ alone as our Savior. We acknowledge Him as Covenant Lord in every area of life, and we vow together to advance His Kingdom on earth.
We believe that God desires His Church to set forth clear statements of her system of doctrine that can be supported from Scripture. We therefore accept as our creed, or subordinate standards, The Westminster Confession of Faith and the Larger and Shorter Catechisms. In addition to these doctrinal statements, we adhere to the Testimony of the Reformed Presbyterian Church of North America, which is our continuing application of God’s written word to the world and the church of today.
We believe that God’s Word clearly sets forth how He is to be worshiped. The reading and exposition of the Word of God are the central focus of our worship. Our musical praise employs God’s Word only, thus making use of the divinely inspired Book of Psalms of the Bible. In keeping with the New Testament Church’s directive for heart worship, we sing without the aid of musical instruments.
