Inviting Thirsty People to Become
Disciples of Jesus
2.5 MILLION PEOPLE
A growing food and culture scene, incredible natural wonders, and a job market fueled by locally-based companies [Nike, Adidas, and Intel] -- these are a few reasons behind the city's amazing population explosion. The Oregon Metro reported in 2015 that "Portland's growth was the 15th fastest among the largest metro areas."
THE LEAST RELIGIOUS CITY
In 2015, Time Magazine Called Portland the least religious city in the United States. There is currently 1 SBC Church for every 28,528 residents. Portland has more strip clubs per capita than any other city and has become a major hub for human trafficking.
THE MOST UNHAPPY CITY
Despite the gorgeous environment, Business Week named Portland, "America's Unhappiest City." This reveals what scripture has taught for centuries; the deepest need for every heart is the peace that comes from the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
SUNDAY MORNINGS AT 11AM
219 SW Stark Street
We are excited about starting a church in the cultural nerve center of Portland, Oregon. We meet on the 3rd floor of The Bishop's House. This historic property was built in 1879 and has been beautifully restored. It's located across the street from Mother's Bistro and two blocks away from the Tom McCall Waterfront Park. Not only is this the heart of the commercial district, it is also Portland's most dense neighborhood.
