Lead, Learn, Love

The mission of every United Methodist Church is to make disciples for the transformation of the world. At Covington FUMC, we strive to fulfill this mission by following God's purpose for us.

Our Purpose is to:

  • Lead people to Christ
  • Learn to be like Christ
  • Love like Christ

What We Believe


The mission of the church is to partner with Christ to make more followers of Christ, in hopes to bring transformation into our lives and into our world. We believe that living out the mission requires service to others and relationships with others. 


Grace is the foundation on which we build our lives. God's grace comes to us before we are even aware of it. As we accept faith in Jesus, we receive the gift of God's justifying grace. As we continue to live a life in relationship with God, we receive expressions of His sanctifying grace.


Worship is one of several ways we use to express our love of God and love for God. We gather weekly to praise, pray, sing, and learn. We gather in person and online. We realize that there are other expressions of worship that are meaningful and we want to help people grow in their worship of God. 


As we strive to be more like Christ, we realize it is an ongoing process. We attempt to grow in our faith by offering our prayers, presence, gifts, service, and witness to God, asking God to bless and multiply our all we bring to Him for use in the building of His Kingdom.
