The PSWC is a regional arm of the Evangelical Covenant Church, the most multiethnic denomination in North America. We are committed to planting in urban, under resourced, multiethnic, suburban and rural contexts. We are a centered set denomination, meaning we believe that with Jesus at the center people can self identify as to whether they are a good fit with us or not. We affirm orthodoxy, but hold loosely the non essentials. We are specifically egalitarian, evangelical, mission driven, and are committed to the multiethnic mosaic that has flourished through church planting.
