We believe that there is one God existing in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit (John 10:30; Matt. 3:16-17; 28:19; 2 Cor. 13:14).
We believe there is salvation and transformation in no one else but Jesus. He is the only one who died and rose again to pay for all sins (John 3:36; Acts 4:12; 1 John 5:12).
We believe in the inerrancy and authority of the Holy Scriptures. The Bible shapes our worship and how we live and interact in this world (2 Sam. 23:2; Is. 6:8-10; Jer. 1:7-8; 2 Timothy 3:16; 2 Pet. 1:21).
We believe that baptism is a means of burial and resurrection and that it washes away our sins (Rom. 6:4; Col. 2:11-13; Acts 22:16; 1 Cor. 6:11; Eph. 5:26; Titus 3:5). Since salvation is God’s work and baptism washes away sins, we baptize infants of parents who recognize this gift is for all, because they too are of the kingdom of God (Luke 18:15-17; Matt. 21:15-16; Acts 2:39; Acts 16:15; 18:33; 1 Cor. 1:16).
We believe that the Lord’s Supper mysteriously is the true body and blood of Jesus Christ in, with, and under the bread and wine, given weekly for the forgiveness of our sins (Matt. 26:26-28; Mark 14:22; John 6:53-58; 1 Cor. 10:16; 11:27-29). We invite you to join us if you recognize your need, and a real presence beyond just a symbol or sign of Jesus body and blood. Otherwise please refrain until you speak more with the pastor.
We believe that the Christian life is characterized by daily repentance and maturing of faith (Matt. 3:2; Luke 24:47; Acts 2:38; Rev. 2:5, 16, 22; 3:3, 19).
We believe that the church is the body of Christ sent on mission to make disciples of the Oregon area and beyond (Matt. 28:18-19; Mark 16:16; Luke 24:46-47; John 20:23; Acts 1:8).
We believe that Jesus Christ will come again and take those who trust in Him to be with Him for eternity (Matt. 25:46; Rev. 20:11-15).
*We are part of the Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod. At its core, this means that we accept the scriptural truths that inspired the reformation of the Christian Church in the 16th century and led to a renewed focus on the Gospel, the good news of Jesus. As a result, we uphold an extravagant and mysterious view of God’s love: that man is saved purely by God’s grace through faith alone, apart from works. We believe that God is so loving and powerful that he is actively working through the message of Jesus, as well as saving and sustaining broken men, women and children through his gifts of baptism and the Lord’s Supper. We believe that we are children of God, and that we are empowered to live out of our identity as sons and daughters of God.
