About St. Johns Christian Church

St. Johns Christian Church Mission - Portland Oregon

Our Mission

Our mission is to reach the world and to change lives through Loving God, Loving People, and Meeting Needs.
“For we are God’s workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.” Ephesians 2:10

Jesus summarized all the commandments into two. The first and most important is to love God. “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength” (Mark 12:30). This means to honor God in every area of our life.

Jesus said the second most important commandment was to love people. He calls his followers to “…love your neighbor as yourself” (Mark 12:31). At St. Johns Christian Church, we strive to love people through our words as well as our actions.

Throughout scripture, God’s people are called to meet the needs of others. Jesus says that we “care for Him when we care for His people” (Matthew 25:40). We at St. Johns Christian Church serve God through meeting needs.
