Thank You

Thank you for taking the time to learn more about First Christian Church.
First Christian Church has been a fixture in The Dalles community for over a century. Our goal is to embody the Great Commandment Jesus gave us: “…Love the Lord your God with all your heart, soul and mind” and , “…love your neighbor as yourself.” (Matthew 22:37, 39) Also, to participate in the Great Commission He gave us: “Go and make disciples of all the nations…” (Matthew 28:19, 20) We believe the message of God’s love for all creation is as relevant today as it has been all through history. We seek to share His love through inspired worship services, biblical preaching and teaching, small groups, service projects, world-wide and local missions, outreach to our community and a genuine care and love for one another.

Core Beliefs

First Christian Church The Dalles is not affiliated with a denomination, instead choosing to be overseen by a team of elders. We consider the Bible to be the words of God, thus being incapable of error. As we seek a unified practice of our faith, we follow the teachings of the New Testament. We share communion each Sunday and follow the Biblical pattern for conversion. We support any who have accepted Jesus as Savior and Lord through belief, public confession of faith, baptism by immersion and continual obedience to Biblical standards of living. We hold firmly to essential doctrines but celebrate freedom in non-essentials as we seek to love God, love people, and make disciples who follow Jesus.
