Risen Life Church is a part of the Northwest Conference of the Evangelical Covenant Church.


The Evangelical Covenant Church is a vibrant, diverse and growing group of more than 825 churches whose work spans across more than 53 countries. Started in 1885 by Swedish immigrants, the Covenant has a passion for seeing people engage in a personal relationship with God through Jesus Christ, across more populations, in a more caring and just world.


The Covenant church has 6 affirmations that help define the views and ethos of the denomination:

  • 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.

More on the affirmations can be found here . Additionally, this video from one of our denomination’s past presidents, Gary Walter, gives a great introduction to our larger church family.
