We're a new church taking root in Portland for God's glory & neighbor's good...
We met this past February to imagine what a new church might look like in inner N/NE Portland. Hoping, dreaming, and praying out loud over some killer hummus at McMennamin's Kennedy School, we proposed a church that would welcome everyone to be about 3 loves -God, neighbor, and ourselves.
We're a different kind of church plant. We're all about being partners for the common good.
Part of a network of church plants, we're part of something started by St. Johns Covenant Church in 2012 - a vision for neighborhood focused churches, gathering community for better communities.
Having just established their community in North Portland, St. Johns Covenant Church sent three families to help kick-start Christ Church in inner North Portland.
We continue to gather for community and common mission.

What's a church plant?
It's us. It's gatherings for community, life together & prayer. It's rolling up our sleeves and working for a better neighborhood, a better city. It's moments of action and moments of contemplation. We kicked off March 1st and we can't wait to see what the future holds - day by day and with each passing moment.
We're part of something bigger
The Evangelical Covenant Church kicked us out for LGBTQ inclusion in February 2015. We are now affiliated with the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) and Oasis USA/Global, two incredible churching movements for inclusion, justice and wholeness in a fragmented world.
