What is our Logo?

A picture can be worth a thousand words, and we think our logo is worth every one. The Chi-Rho symbol (aka Labarum) is one of the oldest and most common Christian symbols in the world.

             The symbol is a layering of two Greek letters: X-Chi and P-rho. These are the first two letters in the Greek word for Christ, Χριστός. It gained immense popularity after Constantine adopted it in 312. It is found on ancient coins, sarcophaguses, murals, and manuscripts dating from the fourth century onward. Today is a universally beloved symbol with endless artistic variations. At Covenant Reformed, we see it as a reminder of the centrality of Christ for the church and our world.

Church History? We Have History Too!

Covenant Reformed might be a new name for Ruston, but we have a history of a biblically faithful gospel mission. In 1974, John Knox began meeting in Ruston. Originally renting space on LA Tech's campus, the church moved into its present property in 1976. God has faithfully sustained the church and nourished the saints in this place for almost fifty years. We pray for another fifty too.

Covenant Reformed keeps the mission and vision of John Knox. We draw from this history and its namesake. John Knox was a brilliant, outspoken, controversial, and passionate minister in the 16th century. He is best known for being a key Reformation leader in Scotland. In his early years he served as a bodyguard carrying a two-handed sword, but later took up the more powerful sword of the Word of God. He bore the flame of the Reformation from Geneva to Scotland. He was an outspoken figure who addressed every current event with the wisdom and insight of Scripture. His influence spread influence was immense and spread to the borderlands of Scotland, Northern Ireland, and England. Later his influence spread to the American colonies and frontier.
