What to Expect

Relevant Teaching
We offer biblically-based teaching that is practical and relevant.  
We provide this teaching through a variety of ways that allow people 
to find a setting that will best promote growth and learning in their lives. On Sunday's we teach with creativity, interacting with the congregation.  We don't do lectures and we don't do boring!

Great Praise & Worship
We believe that praise and worship is the pathway to the presence of God, and we pursue His presence with enthusiasm, fervor and excitement. We desire for individuals to experience the fullness of God's presence so that their lives may be transformed during our times of corporate praise and worship.


Creative Arts
We believe in the full use of our God-given talents. We encourage people to develop and employ these talents creatively in service to the Lord and others. We provide multifaceted, artistic ministry opportunities for people to express these talents in our ongoing effort to impact both the church and the world.


Life-Changing Ministry
We believe that the Spirit of the living God can transform any person's life. Therefore, we offer our lives in service to God and others as conduits of the Lord's transforming love, hope and mercy.

Our prayer is that your relationship with God will be enriched with intimacy, joy and faith. We know you are going to meet and enjoy some of the friendliest and warmest people in the world here.

We invite you to join our congregation in offering praise and worship to our Lord and Savior. You will find that it will bring peace and healing to your heart, as well as prepare you to receive a thought provoking, life-changing message from our Pastors. 

Pastor Jim and Betty Brown would like to meet you after the service, so please, feel free to introduce yourself to them, or any of our staff.

Portland Open Bible Church is committed to authenticity in our spiritual walk and relationships with one another. We will maintain the integrity of our message while communicating in a culturally relevant manner.


We look forward to meeting you!
