Trinity Covenant Church of Fort St John is an evangelical Christian congregation rooted deeply in the Scriptures and in the Protestant Reformation. In particular, we place high value on the faithful ministry of the Word and shepherding of the flock, on biblical and historical worship full of reverence and joy, and on vibrant and godly fellowship and outreach.
We began meeting in 2007 as a small group of families interested in becoming more historically rooted and "Reformed". As our numbers grew, we moved to our current location in 2017, and just called our first full-time pastor in 2019. We are grateful to the Lord for his sustaining grace and abundant provision, and we look forward to what Christ has in store for the years to come!
We are governed by a plurality of elders and deacons, according to classic presbyterian polity (Acts 14:23; Philippians 1:1). Christ is the only King and Head of his church, but he rules by his Word and Spirit, through his ordained under-shepherds, for the building up of his body and the equipping of the saints for service (Ephesians 4:12). Our pastor is a full-time elder who has been specially trained and set apart for the ministry of the Word (1 Timothy 5:17).
As an evangelical and Reformed church, we believe that the ancient creeds of Christianity and the historic confessions of the Protestant Reformation are faithful summaries of what the Bible teaches. In particular, our elders and deacons subscribe to the Westminster Confession of Faith and Catechisms as containing, in substance, the system of doctrine contained in the Scriptures. While church members are not required to subscribe to these documents, they provide a basis of unity, transparency, and accountability for our office-bearers.
Since 2007 Trinity Covenant Church has been blessed to be a member church in the Communion of Reformed Evangelical Churches (CREC). serving alongside other like-minded churches in Knox Presbytery and throughout the world.
