A HUMAN CRISIS
Homelessness has reached a critical level in Portland. It will take more than short-term solutions to make a difference. With government officials wrestling with this question, it's so important for Christians to ask, "where does the church fit in?"
A GOSPEL OPPORTUNITY
Jesus always began his ministry in a new city with those who were poor and disenfranchised. Rather than seeing the Portland homeless crisis as a municipal nuissance, we want to be a church with a different view. We want to look at people with kindness and compassion. We have a core value of Action. That means that when we don't know what to do, we start by doing something. We are also a church with a core value of Justice. We believe that Jesus came to set wrong things right. We believe the Gospel is the greatest living hope for every soul. We also believe that the Gospel treats the whole person.
A CITY-WIDE INVITATION
In order to make the difference we want to see, we need people to join us. If you live in the Portland area, consider visiting us this summer during our July preview services. We want to be a different kind of church, and we are inviting you to help. Even if you've never been a church person before.
