The story of The Oregon Community, who we are, where we came from, and where we're going.
The single attribute that makes church life unique from all other spiritual
disciplines - it takes a community. We are called to be together in order that
we may spur one another on towards love and good deeds.
A lifestyle of love, acceptance, and forgiveness. We strive to create an
atmosphere where all are welcome, both in word and deed. We are a place
where everyone is welcome regardless of race, religion, sexuality or
John 13.1-5; 12-17; 33-35
Following in the footsteps of Jesus, we are all called to serve. Not just those
we like, or are like us, but everyone. Serving is an essential for growth and life
1 Peter 4.10-11
We are always striving to find ways to give to and bless others, because God has so greatly given to and blessed us. We live a life-style of generosity, not just when we can "afford" it.
We do not go to church, we are the church. The Gospel is not real unless it is a lifestyle of Good News that is lived out Monday through Sunday. It is life, and life abundant. Not just a future experience, but for today. We are discovering how this future and eternal life can be lived out in the present.
Colossians 3.4, 12-14
The final authority for faith and life. We know who God is through the Scriptures. It is full of life, truth, challenges and mystery. It is the bread of this life.
2 Timothy 3.16-17
We don't have all the answers. We haven't got it all figured out. We are in process and always learning. God has chosen to use us in the journey, not after we have arrived.
