About Our Church

Decorah Covenant Church is a gathering of people of all ages and backgrounds who are passionate about following Christ and following Christ together. We believe that God's Word is alive when we live it out in a community of faith.

Motivated by the love of God, the mission of Decorah Covenant Church (DCC) is to share the gospel through a dynamic and flourishing community of faith that is Christ-centered and biblically based in meaningful worship, encourages authentic discipleship, and is empowered by the Spirit for ministries of compassion, mercy, and justice.

Our  beliefs are consistent with many other protestant evangelical bodies.  Like other Evangelical Covenant Churches, we agree that the following Affirmations  should guide our life and mission together:

  • 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.

Additional information on these Affirmations can be found at: www.covchurch.org/resources/covenant-affirmations

Join us Sunday morning at 9am to hear the testimonies of the recent Sankofa journey participants from DCC. The Sankofa retreat, put on semi-annually by the Evangelical Covenant Church, is an invitation to understand race as a critical component of our Christian discipleship. It is an interactive, spiritual formation, pilgrimage that equips Christians to pursue racial righteousness inside and outside the church.

Sankofa attests that we must look backwards (into our history), before we can faithfully move forward together, in the present and future. The Sankofa experience does just this, by exploring historic sites of the Civil Rights Movement, connecting the freedom struggle of the past, to our present realities. Join us Sunday to hear how God is working in our church body on the issue of race.

It's not too late to join the discussion on race! On Wednesday, November 13 at 7pm, there will be a gathering in the DCC Fellowship area to discuss the book "The Color of Compromise: The truth about the American Church's Complicity in Racism" by Jemar Tisby. Even if you haven't read the book, you are still welcome to join in the discussion of this vitally important topic.

"The refusal to act in the midst of injustice is itself an act of injustice. Indifference to oppression perpetuates oppression.”- Jemar Tisby
