In December of 2018, the members of this church voted to change our name from Lawton Indian Baptist Church to Covenant Baptist Church.
This name change was for two main reasons, as we have sought to conform to what Christ, the only Head of the church, has taught us in His Word concerning His church:
1) The identity of Christ’s church: It is to be identified by what it believes (the apostles’ doctrine, Acts. 2:42) and Who it believes upon (Christ, Eph. 2:20) and not by anything else.
2) The nature of Christ’s church: It is a unity of all believers in one body in Christ, no matter their national, cultural, or ethnic background. (Galatians 3:27-28; Colossians 3:10).
“For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ. There is neither Jew nor Greek … for ye are all one in Christ Jesus.” (Galatians 3:27–28)
“And are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief corner stone.” (Ephesians 2:20)
