College Park Covenant Church

We're part of the Evangelical Covenant Church of Canada, which seeks to form and nurture communities that are deeply committed to Jesus Christ and passionately engaged in Christ’s mission in the world. The purpose of Covenant affirmations is to make clear the values and principles that have guided the Evangelical Covenant Church since its founding in 1885. For Covenant people, our essential beliefs are summed up in what we call Covenant affirmations: We affirm the centrality of the word of God. We affirm the necessity of the new birth. We affirm a commitment to the whole mission of the Church. We affirm the Church as a fellowship of believers. We affirm a conscious dependence on the Holy Spirit. We affirm the reality of freedom in Christ. For more visit: http://www.covchurch.ca/ http://www.covchurch.org/

The Evangelical Covenant Church Annual Meeting voted overwhelmingly this afternoon (84%) to affirm a resolution repudiating the Doctrine of Discovery. From the abstract,

“This resolution briefly explains the Doctrine of Discovery and outlines its long-lasting impact in the U.S., as well as the damage and trauma it has inflicted on Indigenous peoples. We turn to Scripture to remember that God has created all humans in God’s own image and imbued each individual with God’s image (imago Dei).

We confess with our Indigenous brothers and sisters that the whole of creation is the work of God, and we acknowledge the damage done to the Indigenous inhabitants of the Americas through the taking of rights, property, and land. We acknowledge the cultural genocide of Indigenous peoples through sustained and systemic acts of injustice. We acknowledge the complicity of the Christian church (including the Covenant Church) in that dispossession, subjugation, and relegation.

We the Evangelical Covenant Church hereby repudiate the Doctrine of Discovery as fundamentally opposed to the gospel of Jesus Christ. We will seek to support Indigenous people as they identify ways to affirm their inherent human rights and resolve wrongs.” http://www.covchurch.org/wp-content/uploads/sites/4/2021/03/Resolution-for-the-Repudiation-of-the-Doctrine-of-Discovery.pdf?fbclid=IwAR1j2Eo7JSZoEbHjD29NfJS1xjZYVXYmo35tlRN2Ymu2h3n5kVguWhTbJmg

I (Glenn Peterson) am grateful for the women and men who have given themselves to this work of advocacy and awareness. In particular, our indigenous sisters and brothers who have graciously remained open to relationship and sharing their stories. May we remain open to listen and respond.

As a member of the Evangelical Covenant Church, I am grateful for this step and aware of the ongoing journey that remains for us as Canadians. As it is made available, we will share the powerful words of Pastor TJ Smith. As he shared, I found myself torn between the current moment and this image from a cemetery near the former Marieval Indian Residential School. This resolution acknowledged the shared, but unique Canadian, story. I wonder… what is our next step?

Love mercy. Do justice. Walk humbly.
