Gospel Way Covenant Church was organized in 1977 as the Gospel Way Bible Church under the leadership of Rev. William M. Watts, Sr. Its first service was held at 1450 S. Indiana Ave. in the old St. Luke’s Hospital Chapel. In 1979 the congregation affiliated with the Evangelical Covenant Church*, and with the help of the Denomination was able to move to its current location and the name was changed to the Gospel Way Covenant Church. During those years the church set up an alternative school while the teachers were on strike and was able to minister to many children and eventually their parents. As a family of believers, we are empowered and led by the Holy Spirit, acknowledging the Lord Jesus Christ as our Savior, and the Bible as the true “Word of God.”
