BETTER COVENANT, BETTER PROMISES
Better Covenant Lifestyle is a community and resource center of content and products that are committed to the sole purpose of seeing God’s Kingdom rule and reign at hand.
We are dedicated to raising up a community of believers who are carrying the message of the New Covenant and advancing the Kingdom of God throughout the earth. We desire to see this vision accomplished through both orthodoxy (theology/right thinking) and orthopraxy (application/practice). We believe that a true understanding of the New and Better Covenant — while praying and believing what Jesus told us to pray, “Your Kingdom come, Your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven” — should affect every aspect of our lives and the culture around us.
The scripture behind the name is Hebrews 8:6, which says, “But now He has obtained a more excellent ministry, by as much as He is also the mediator of a better covenant, which has been enacted on better promises.”
Better Covenant Lifestyle was created by Nate Ebel in the fall of 2016 as a community blog to share encouraging content in line with the theological system known as Better Covenant Theology (BCT). As a second year student of the Welton Academy Supernatural Bible School, Nate was inspired to provide a community where fellow students and himself could blog about subjects they were passionate about.
The five mountain peaks on the Better Covenant Lifestyle logo represent the five major covenant of the Bible, leading to the cross, which innaugurated the new and better covenant. As an entrepreneur, Nate’s long-term vision was to grow the community into an organization and resource center that hosts conferences, publishes books, provides training materials, and more.
Tim Woodcock, Nate’s friend and pastor, was an orginal contributor to the Better Covenant Lifestyle blog. After coming across a local retail shop on vacation and spending some time in conversation with the owner, Tim got the idea of creating some stickers and t-shirts to sell.
After sharing the idea with Nate, the two partnered up and began brainstorming business ideas and playing around with different t-shirt designs. Tim’s heart was to provide quality products that Christians would actually want to buy, and give back 25% of all the proceeds to Kingdom-minded ministries. Aligning with Nate’s long-term vision, the Better Covenant Lifestyle platform was a natural fit to introduce the products and expand the community’s impact.
