Distinguishing one Christian church from another is difficult. Our statements of faith are similar. However, the churches comprising the Body of Christ do have different emphases. Portland Bible Church is all about teaching.
We take music seriously and believe that hymns provide the best format to express thought and appreciation for God. The hymns we use are Biblically accurate and arrangements are musically interesting and fun to sing.
Our lessons are lectures, presented by a pastor trained in the languages and historical context of Scripture and gifted by the Holy Spirit. We go through verse by verse, revealing the Holy Spirit’s intentions for our spiritual edification.
While many churches emphasize counseling, we believe in the privacy, self-determination, and spiritual growth of the individual believer. Growing in the grace and knowledge of Christ, we’re able to endure life’s challenges on our own.
Portland Bible Church is a non-denominational, unaffiliated, Christian church committed to Biblical teaching. Our emphasis is verse-by-verse interpretation of Scripture from the original languages with attention to the context in which it was written. Quite simply, we are about the accurate teaching of the Word of God. 2 Tim 2:15 (Study to show thyself approved unto God…)
Pastor Gary Glenney, a graduate with a Masters Degree in Biblical languages from Tulsa Seminary, was ordained at Berachah Church in Houston Texas under the ministry of R.B. Thieme.
