about
First Covenant Church of Eureka belongs to a larger body of churches called The Evangelical Covenant Church. This denomination grew out of a revival movement within the state Lutheran Church of Sweden in the mid 1880’s. We remain faithful to the vision that brought about that revival—by God’s grace through faith each person is able to have a relationship with Jesus Christ and God’s Word is the sole authority for faith, doctrine, and conduct.

We are also part of the Pacific Southwest Conference (PSWC) of the Evangelical Covenant Church. The PSWC was organized by six Covenant churches in February 1902. Their desire was to advance Christ’s mission together – the same desire that compels us today.
 

The PSWC is a mission region of the Evangelical Covenant Church encompassing Arizona, California, Hawaii, Nevada, and Utah. In those states you find a mosaic of churches working interdependently to transform lives and communities. The PSWC’s purpose is to serve as a catalytic, prophetic, and resourcing ministry, which develops leaders and increases the capacity of the church for kingdom advancement.
