Grace Covenant Distinctives...
...a desire for our lives to evidence a practical Christianity through a practical obedience to the Word of God.
...an emphasis on the Bible's covenantal view of the family, expounding on the wonder and mystery of truly Christian marriages and the blessing of children.
...a commitment to a solid and defined Reformed doctrinal foundation on which to build our lives as Christians.
...the practice of Biblical, family centric worship as expressed through hymns of praise, exegetical preaching, and the observance of the historic sacraments, Baptism and the Lord's Supper.
As evangelical Christians, we stand on the bedrock of historic Protestant orthodoxy and pray for God's grace to help us build from this foundation to make a difference in our world. We invite you to visit with us and experience the refreshing of intelligent Christianity.

Spokane, WA
Phone: (509) 459-9470
Because we practice cooperation between paedos and credos, we have the following arrangement. All credo children who have been baptized are automatically permitted to the Supper. For children from paedo homes, the communicant status depends upon the parents discretion. Paedo Parents who want their children to commune need to inform the elders. Because we celebrate the Supper weekly (in Spokane), visiting families should just speak with the pastor before the service.
