About Christ Church: Portland
We're a new church taking root in Portland for God's glory & neighbor's good...
We are a new church in Portland doing our imperfect best to have the kind of faith, courage and room to be our imperfect best. Following in the way of Jesus, we hope to be a church that includes all (no matter who we are, what we think or where we come from) while trying to be focused on the things people of faith have been actively pursuing for thousands of years.
Namely, we think that the way of Jesus is about love, compassion & justice, that people and society can change & grow, and that to have centered, healthy lives we need to be about action & contemplation.
Some may call this holistic. Or integrated. Or progressive, we just think it is what it mean to be truly human.
Our Ethos shapes who we are as an open, active & inclusive Christ-centered community. We are about these five core values because they are at the heart of who Jesus was and how he showed us to be truly human: Inclusion, Equality, Relationships, Hope & Perseverance.
We also think the Apostles Creed does a pretty good job of summing up the faith.
We are affiliated with the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) and Oasis.
We meet at 11:30am at historic First Christian Church, downtown at 1314 SW Park Ave. Portland, OR 97201. There is free parking in the SW Jefferson Street garage between SW Park & Broadway (first come first serve) as well as street parking.

We're only as strong & sustainable as when we have others who stand with us...
We are a new church start committed to God’s glory & neighbor’s good. In 2015 our parent denomination, The Evangelical Covenant Church severed ties with us over LGBTQ inclusion, cancelling two years of promised funding, fundraising support, and coaching. We were devastated but continued on and were able to survive that setback because of the generosity of others. Your gifts and financial support are received with incredible gratitude, they are secure, and are tax-deductible. Thank you!
There are a number of ways you can give to Christ Church.
