CHRIST COVENANT LOGO
The Concept: The Celtic Cross, long a symbol of Presbyterianism, is a rendition of Christ Covenant’s traditional motif. It is an ascending cross – tall and dominant – to communicate the preeminence of Jesus Christ, and thus reflecting our church’s theme verse taken from Colossians 1:18 – “And He is the head of the body, the church. He is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, that in everything He might be preeminent” (ESV). This tall cross communicates the truth and power of Christ's resurrection. The living symbol is dynamic and colorful with clean, simple, bold and honest lines – the marks of authenticity and integrity. Its contemporary feel is forward-looking while its Celtic shape and repetition of our old logo speaks of our appreciation and reliance upon our doctrinal heritage. It is designed to create a sense of hopeful anticipation for the future.
The shapes: The cross symbolizes the Gospel of Christ, the ancient church, Presbyterianism, and salvation by grace. The large rectangle is the sky and our spiritual future. The small rectangle, upon which the cross rests, is the Cornerstone himself, Jesus Christ. (Eph. 2:20). The circle in the cross points to eternity and the community of the church. The broken plane speaks of transcendence and life itself.
The colors: The logo employs three bold, contrasting and yet complementary colors. Teal blue is for the sky, heaven, and “the not yet.” Gold is used for the glory of the Father, the royalty of the Son, and the power of the Spirit – the greatness of God. Brown reminds us of our home, the earth, “the here and now” and the fact of Christ's incarnation in our world.
The font: Bookman is a serif font and the letters are traditional letter forms but large and bold for readability and a contemporary look. This font reminds us that our faith has been passed down to us through the centuries, and that we stand on a timeless doctrinal heritage.
We thank Dwayne Cogdill for his creative skills that he availed to us, to glorify Christ and encourage us, as he designed our logo in 2008.
