Who We Are
We are a church started by families who love God and Newberg. We believe that, along with the other churches in Newberg, we have a role to play in helping and celebrating our people and community. We like to say that we are a church with Open Doors and people with Open Hearts and Open Hands.
In the Bible, the heart is the place where mind and emotions meet, the core of a person. What we love most determines how we think and what we do. It is only when we are willing to let Christ change our hearts, when he is our greatest love, that we grow. We are a church that seeks to have our hearts changed, encouraging one another, as together we seek to understand how our new love changes our thinking and actions.
The Cross shows us God’s love and his generosity. In our sinful and rebellious state he gives us all of himself unconditionally; when our new hearts begin to contemplate that Truth, we too become generous. We are a church that seeks to live generously in light of the infinite generosity of God.
We believe that Truth, in the person of Jesus Christ, found us. Therefore, we are a church that is committed to being a welcoming community for all those asking questions, weighed down with the brokenness of life, as well as those looking for joyous community to celebrate the goodness of God.
