Ravenswood Evangelical Covenant Church has been actively serving our neighborhood since 1887. We are a welcoming, inter-generational and diverse congregation that proclaims, responds to, and shares God’s Good News to each other, our community, and the world.

Our Mission Statement Ravenswood Evangelical Covenant Church exists to love and worship God, and love and care for others. By God’s grace, we commit to help people find and follow Jesus Christ through the guidance of his Spirit and his word. (Adopted March 8, 2006.)
Our Denomination: The Evangelical Covenant Church Ravenswood Covenant Church is part of the Evangelical Covenant Church denomination, a rapidly growing multiethnic denomination in the United States and Canada with ministries on five continents of the world. Founded in 1885 by Swedish immigrants, the ECC values the Bible as the word of God, the gift of God’s grace and ever-deepening spiritual life that comes through a faith with Jesus Christ, the importance of extending God’s love and compassion to a hurting world, and the strength that comes from unity within diversity.
The Evangelical Covenant Church is:
- Evangelical, but not exclusive
- Biblical, but not doctrinaire
- Traditional, but not rigid
- Congregational, but not independent
The ECC is a non-creedal church built around key evangelical, reformation, Protestant principles such as being biblical, relational, devotional, and missional. These four aspects of our ecclesiology are represented in our logo. We also hold to six core affirmations that unite us across our diversity: Centrality of the Word of God, Necessity of New Birth, the Whole Mission to the Whole Church, the Fellowship of Believers, Reliance on the Holy Spirit, and Freedom in Christ.
