our beliefs


We believe in God, eternally existing as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. | John 1:1-3


We believe in the Bible. It is God's Word, and when correctly interpreted and obeyed, it is the expression of His Lordship in written form in the church and in the life of believers. | 2 Timothy 3:16, John 10:34-35, John 1


We believe that humanity as a whole is separated from God by sin. | Isaiah 59:2


We believe that Jesus died in order to do away with sin's effect and unite us with God. We believe in salvation initiated by God's grace and activated by a person's faith expressed through calling on the name of Jesus Christ. This unites God and anyone who will receive it. | 1 Peter 3:18, Ephesians 2:8, Romans 10:31, Acts 2:21


We believe in the baptism in the Holy Spirit with the evidence of speaking in tongues as a second work of God's grace in the life of a believer. This brings power into the believer's life. | Acts 1:8, 2:1-4, 10:44-46, 19:6


We believe that all people are welcome to fellowship with God and experience the fullness of the calling of God on their lives. This includes gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, non-binary, and simply put - all people regardless of how they identify themselves as. | Romans 10:13, Acts 8:26-38


We believe in worship. This is the highest calling of every believer. We believe in prayer, this is God's method of getting His will done on earth. We believe in hearing the Word of God taught, this is how God infuses faith into His people. We believe in faithfulness to a local church, this is the mechanism God uses to operate throughout the earth. We believe in miracles because they are God's expression of Himself among His people. | John 4:23, Matthew 6:10, Romans 10:17, Hebrews 10:25, Mark 16:20, Acts 14:3

Senior Bishop & Apostle

Bishop Randy Morgan and Apostle Johnny Layton-Morgan are the founding and senior leaders of New Covenant Church of Atlanta and overseers of The Covenant Network. They were both brought together by God in 1993 and have been happily married ever since! Under a calling from the Holy Spirit, they both moved from their home in Tifton, GA to Atlanta to start NCCA on July 23, 2000. Their vision for the church is that it's a place "where the Spirit of God is being poured out upon all people", to be a revival center where people are born again, filled with the Holy Spirit, and equipped and released into their ministries and callings. Their vision for The Covenant Network is that it would be a network of leaders that rise up to see a global outpouring of the Holy Spirit upon all people.


Leadership within the local church sets the course for the entire church. We believe in a New Testament "5-fold" as described in Ephesians 4:11&12. We believe that leadership is for mentoring and establishing believers in their walks with God and equipping them for works of ministry/service. Make a note of what area you'd like to grow in and then contact that team. Then, he/she will gladly help mentor you and help you grow in your walk and gifting(s) with God! We believe that while not everyone will hold a 5-fold office, everyone is called to serve in some fashion for the Kingdom with their God-given passions, skills, abilities, and are just as important to the growing of the Kingdom. This includes the ministry of helps, administration, IT/tech, songwriting, design, etc. Every function of the Body is necessary (1 Corinthians 12:12-27).
