The Evangelical Covenant Church has its roots in historical Christianity as it emerged in the Protestant Reformation, in the biblical instruction of the Lutheran Church of Sweden, and in the great spiritual awakenings of the nineteenth century.
Our church, founded in 1882 with 15 charter members, enjoys a long and rich history in the DeKalb community. We are a member of the Evangelical Covenant Church, which is a product of the Reformation and emerged from the Lutheran Church of Sweden in the 1800ís.
