New Covenant Church of God in Christ

Celebrating 51 Years of ministry 1972-2023

The New Covenant Church had its beginning in 1972. It was originally known as the Inner-City Outreach Ministry (IOCM). God inspired Elder Fred W. Washington of 29 years of age to move by faith and establish a ministry in the south side of Minneapolis. The church was founded with the mission to reach out into the community with the message of hope and deliverance through Jesus Christ. After 49 years of faithfully shepherding Bishop Washington under the leading of God appointed Pastor Demetrius A. Chester as Senior Pastor in August 2021.


Our mission at the New Covenant Church is to help adults, children, and families experience the New Covenant, which is the promise from God to forgive sins, and transform hearts that are turned to Jesus Christ our mediator.


"The church where everybody is somebody, and Christ is the center of attraction"


Love God; Love People; Love The Word; Love Giving

We believe in the blessed Hope, which is the rapture of the Church of God, which is in Christ, at His return.

We believe that the only means of being cleansed from sin is through repentance and faith in the precious Blood of Jesus Christ.

We believe that regeneration by the Holy Ghost is absolutely essential for personal salvation.

We believe that the redemptive work of Christ on the Cross provides healing for the human body in answer to believing prayer.

We believe that the Baptism of the Holy Spirit, according to Acts 2:4, is given to believers who ask for it.

We believe in the sanctifying power of the Holy Spirit, by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a holy and separated life in the present world.
