WHO WE ARE
Portland Christian Center lives by a five-step strategy around which the life of the church family orbits:
Know God & Make Him Known
Committed to living out our unique church shape
God’s family ought to include all ages, shapes and colors. PCC strives to equally seek, love, accept, value, reach and minister to people of every demographic.
Spiritual unity among believers is precious to God. PCC values and promotes healthy relationship in marriages, families, among believers and between churches.
Missions is the mission of the church. PCC maintains a passionate heartbeat for reaching lost people around the world, especially the unreached.
The God-pleasing church is founded on the authority of Scripture. PCC is committed to a theology that is orthodox, evangelical, and Pentecostal, rooted not in past church traditions or in current methodologies, but on what scripture declares.
To be like Jesus is the highest aim of authentic discipleship. PCC’s ministry emphasis is not just to inform, but to transform, encourage and equip people to become fully formed in Christ.
The worship arts are the church’s most visible and powerful “calling card” for reaching its community. PCC maintains an emphasis on the arts that is excellent, current, Spirit-formed and most of all, offered for the glory of God alone.
God will show himself strong on behalf of those who will step out in risky faith to radically love him and sacrificially serve his purposes in the world! PCC strives to radically love God and express risky faith.
The local church is the hope of the world. PCC is committed to planting, strengthening and multiplying the church in Portland and around the world.
The Kingdom of God is a baton pass. PCC’s core is committed to modeling footsteps of faith for future generations, leaving a legacy of radical love and risky obedience to those who follow.
The proper motto and motive for church is Soli Deo Gloria, “glory to God alone.” PCC’s driving passion and ultimate benchmark of success is to make Jesus famous in our city and around our world.
