The Covenant Presbyterian Church (CPC) is a Presbyterian denomination with 13 member churches in the US.[2]

Their distinctive beliefs include Young Earth Creationism, the inerrancy of the Bible, family integrated church and the promotion of homeschooling and Christian schools.[3] They are known for permitting the practice of paedocommunion with approval of a local church's session.[4]

The church is Reformed in theology, and postmillennial eschatology. It subscribes to the Westminster Confession, the Westminster Larger Catechism and Westminster Shorter Catechism[5] and the Nicene Creed.[6]
