Welcome to the House of Covenant International Church (HCIC). HCIC is founded on the foundation
of the covenant that God has made on the cross of Jesus Christ. As members of HCIC we chose to devote ourselves to present our life to Christ and to each other and demonstrate his spirit through love, worship, witnessing and ministry to the needy. HCIC was established in year 2012 by the leading of the Holy Spirit. Since the establishment of this church God has blessed our ministry in many ways.
We are a Christ-centered church committed to reaching members of the Ethiopian and Eritrean
community, as well as members of the international community in the Winnipeg area. Our mission
is helping individuals to grow into the likeness of Christ, and preach the gospel of grace to everyone.
We believe in our God given abilities to change lives for the better through faith in a God. We are an all-inclusive organization; this is to say, we dont turn away anyone who may need our help or those who just want to take part in all we offer. Rich and poor, old and young, sinner and saint, people of all races, creeds, and colors, even people of other faiths, you are all welcome here. Come see what we have to offer you.
We offer worship services weekly and a wide variety of ministries that help create a community of
followers marked by unwavering faith and unconditional love. Our uplifting services feature
messages that are valuable to life.
Check out our morning worship every Sunday for a rich blend of traditional and contemporary
music and our Saturday afternoon prayer service as well as our home Bible study groups in week
days. Come and join us to learn more about us.
