Our History

Covenant Presbyterian Church was founded in 1981 as a home Bible Study and in 1983 moved to a chapel under the name of Friendship Presbyterian Chapel. In 1985, we became a member of the Presbyterian Church of America and shortly after, in 1986, we moved to our current property at 440 North Columbia Street and changed our name to Covenant Presbyterian Church.

The church initially met in a large house on the property. The church was blessed with growth and in 1992 construction began on a new sanctuary, which is where we worship today. Our current pastor, Reverend Andy Adams, was called to our church in 2003 and has served the church faithfully for over 10 years.

Our Mission

  • Evangelizing Milledgeville, the Oconee area, and the world for Jesus Christ
  • Equipping and discipling Christians to a more faithful walk with Christ
  • Ministering to the needs of the people of Covenant Presbyterian Church
  • Ministering to the needs of the people of Milledgeville and the Oconee area

Covenant was founded with a desire to serve the community and we continue this mission today through outreach locally, regionally, and globally. Learn more about our outreach efforts and how you can get involved here.

Our Beliefs

  • We believe the Bible is the written word of God, inspired by the Holy Spirit and without error in the original manuscripts. The Bible is the revelation of God’s truth and is infallible and authoritative in all matters of faith and practice.
  • We believe in the Holy Trinity. There is one God, who exists eternally in three persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
  • We believe that all are sinners and totally unable to save themselves from God’s displeasure, except by His mercy.
  • We believe that salvation is by God alone, and He sovereignly chooses those He will save. We believe His choice is based on His grace, not on any human individual merit, or foreseen faith.
  • We believe that Jesus Christ is the eternal Son of God, who through His perfect life and sacrificial death atoned for the sins of all who will trust in Him, alone, for salvation.
  • We believe that God is gracious and faithful to His people not simply as individuals but as families in successive generations according to His Covenant promises.
  • We believe that the Holy Spirit indwells God’s people and gives them the strength and wisdom to trust Christ and follow him.
  • We believe that Jesus will return, bodily and visibly, to judge all mankind and to receive His people unto Himself.
  • We believe that all aspects of our lives are to be lived to the glory of God under the lordship of Jesus Christ.
