We believe in a church that is gospel-centered, biblically literate, and intellectually engaging, where questions and doubts are welcomed, not suppressed. We’re convinced that when Jesus gets our heads, He will also have our hearts.

Jesus—renewing minds, reviving hearts, restoring lives


We want the experience to be one of warmth and genuine enthusiasm—where every task is approached like it will matter forever, because it does, and where every person feels important, because they are.



But it must go beyond that, from simply knowing and feeling to actually doing and living. We want to constantly create tangible ways to act on our faith and serve in the city, not just in the sanctuary, that Portland would see the good we do and God would get the glory!
