Cov Life Institute
AW Tozer once stated, “What comes into your mind when you think about God is the most important thing about you.” For CLC to become a church who displays God’s glory well, we must be a church who knows who and what His word calls us to and then reorients our lives around this standard. If we are to ever become a gospel centered community, we must be a church who rightly understands doctrine and then lives all of life in a gospel-centered manner. If we are to ever work for the gospel renewal of Tampa and all nations, we must be a church who rightly understands God’s mission and how His church is involved and then in obedience to this understanding joins God on His mission.
Covenant Life Institute (CLI) is a venue whereby we grow together in hopes of becoming biblical theologians and missionaries. CLI supplements the preached word and missional community discussions in helping us grow in our understanding of God and the various doctrines surrounding Him.
Practically, CLI is a one-hour time of study (8:45-9:45am) on Sunday mornings that will serve to grow us in our understanding of and love for Jesus. CLI is offered in 8-week semesters/rotations so that we can offer 4 weeks of study while another group serves. At the end of these 4 weeks the groups switch and those who were studying now serve so that those serving can now study. If you are not serving, we invite you to join with us as we study. Covenant Life Church is adapting a cohesive and purposeful curriculum created by North Wake Church that will focus on laying a biblical, gospel-centered foundation about the doctrines of the Christian faith and how these doctrines inform all of life.
We recently completed our first & second rotations of CLI studying the doctrine of God & the doctrine of Scripture. The current rotation begins Sunday, January 6 when we will continue our study through the doctrine of salvation.
