Our Church At a Glance

Our Distinctives

Reformed: We believe in the doctrines of grace, that salvation is by the sovereign mercy of God and not by human will or works (Romans 9:16), and that when we gather for worship we do so with God at the center, careful to worship in Spirit and in truth – the truth of His Word (John 4:23, John 17:17) and that the church should be organized Biblically, with multiple elders and meaningful membership.

Multi-racial: We believe that the Lord Jesus calls all kinds of people together to form one church (John 10:16) and that nothing ought to separate Christians (except unrepentant sin) (Eph. 2:15f). Therefore, we believe that a Biblical church should look like the community in which it lives.

Active: We believe that every member of a church should be supplying some gift (Eph. 4:16).  We are a community of believers who meet to be discipled, seeking to grow in holiness, reverently and joyfully worshiping a holy God and so equipped to go out as missionaries, being relevant when reaching out.

 Pastor John Carpenter is a graduate of Samford University (BA), Fuller Theological Seminary (M.Div.), Trinity Evangelical Divinity School (Th.M.), and the Lutheran School of Theology at Chicago (Ph.D.). He is the author of various articles and, with his wife, a former missionary to Ethiopia. He is joined in shepherding Covenant by other elders.

Why Covenant?


 We’re named “Covenant” because that is what God makes with His people so that we will be saved: a covenant promise based on the Lord’s gracious work. God made promises that He fulfilled in the New covenant relationships with each other, as church members, committed to being in a body together.

Our statement of faith is based on the 1833 New Hampshire Baptist Confession and the Nicene Creed. 


We are a new church in Caswell County, North Carolina, in the Danville, Virginia area. We are committed to being Reformed – holding to salvation by God’s pure grace and 

the authority of the Bible (not tradition) 

in our worship -- and multi-racial – believing that the Body of Christ should be integrated with all kinds of believers – and active – with every believer engaged in service as part of a covenant community together.

“You must be born again.” 

(The Lord Jesus, John 3:3)

“What’s the gospel? I’ll put it in a sentence.  The Gospel is the news that Jesus Christ, the Righteous One, died for our sins and rose again, eternally triumphant over all his enemies, so that there is now no condemnation for those who believe, but only everlasting joy. 

That’s the gospel.” 

(according to John Piper)

For He must reign until He has put all His enemies under His feet” 

(1 Corinthians 15:25)
