What We Believe...

What We BelieveThe Dalles First Christian Church is an independent governed congregation with elder oversight. We have strong ties to the heritage of the Restoration Movement. We follow the Lord's plea for unity. We support all believers who accept Jesus as Lord of their lives. We don't consider ourselves the only Christians, but "Christians only". We look to the Bible as the inerrant Word of God. We follow the New Testament in matters of faith and practice. We observe communion on a weekly basis and follow the Biblical pattern of conversion. Church members have exhibited their faith in Christ by belief, repentance, public confession of faith, baptism (immersion), and a continual faithful obedience to Biblical standards of living. We stand firm on the essential doctrines of the faith, but observe freedom in the non-essential areas of Christian life and belief.



First Christian Church

First Christian ChurchThe present day First Christian Church congregation in The Dalles was established in 1892 by John W. Jenkins. There were 24 charter members. According to a notice in the local newspaper The Chronicle, the actual legal organizing of the group was done by J. T. Eshelman. The organizational meeting was held in the Court Room of the Old Court House. The emerging church borrowed facilities from several organizations in town while getting under way. The group was able to build promptly and their building was dedicated to the service of the Lord on September 2nd, 1893 by William F. Cowden. A. D. Skaggs was the minister from 1896 to 1897 followed by Gentry Rushing in 1899.
