A Pietist Renewal Movement
In the 17th century a group of Christians, eventually called Pietists, sought a way through the mutual hostility of their day. They wanted to be sisters and brothers with anyone who was following Jesus. It is not that they were indifferent to theology but they recognized their own weakness and fallibility; and perhaps most important, did not want to reject anyone whom Jesus had accepted. As Protestants they believed salvation was by faith and not based on theological correctness.
In seeking a way through the hostility of our own day, the Covenant Collective exists to promote this same Pietist vision for the local church. We will not be motivated by fear or by the need to create firm boundaries; but by commitment to the Word, the love of neighbor, and the desire to walk humbly with all who put their faith in Jesus. The Covenant Collective is not a new denomination but rather an organization for any pastor, lay person or church that is drawn to the Pietist vision that despite real conflict we are indeed better together.
