Our Story

Our faith community was founded in 1855.  We were sharing ministry in Salem before Oregon was a state! We have enjoyed a vibrant history of serving our neighbors such as local Habitat for Humanity projects and overseas mission trips to Ecuador. In addition, we celebrate a passion for passing on the faith from generation to generation as families raise their children in our faith community.

Our congregation is an active participant in the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ), part of the Stone / Campbell movement founded on the frontier in the early 1800s. Hallmarks of this movement are church unity (ecumenism), Bible study, weekly celebration of communion, baptism by immersion, and congregations covenanting to share ministry as they see called by Jesus. Multiple US presidents have been members of our denomination. We have had a leading role in the World Council of Churches and the National Council of Churches. Typically, you will find our members actively involved in efforts to better our local community.
