About Us.

Pastor's Welcome.

Mission and Values.

Get to know more about our values at JPC.

Jesus Pursuit Church is an apostolic community where people encounter God, are transformed, and advance the kingdom. We exist to know Jesus Christ and to make him famous in Albany, the Northwest, and the nations.

We are a community of faith that values Christ-likeness in committed, loving relationships that don’t give up on one another. We endeavor to keep the unity of the Spirit as we humbly extend ourselves to the poor, broken, and bound that need Christ regardless of their culture, race or background.
We value freedom and creativity endeavoring to help each other fulfill our destiny in Christ, while trusting God to grow us up into Him as we respect family and personal responsibility in our relationships with each other.

We long to know Jesus in friendship, power, and truth as we give priority to worship, prayer and His word, waiting upon Him to know His presence and to hear and obey His voice.

We long for more than a visitation of the Holy Spirit. We long to become a place of habitation where He can come and remain in our midst.

Our Cultures.

A group is defined by the cultures they live out. While we value and believe in every kingdom culture,
here are our CORE cultures that we believe define our community as Jesus Pursuit.

Our Beliefs.

One

We believe that the Holy Scriptures are the inspired Word of God; the standard of truth, morality, and justice; the final source in all matters relating to faith and conduct. (2 Timothy 3:16, 2 Peter 1:20-21, Matthew 24:35)

Two

We believe that the One True God is eternally manifested in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. (1 John 1:1-3, John 15:26, Matthew 28:19, John 16:7-15)

Three

We believe in the virgin birth of Jesus Christ. (Matthew 1:18-25, Luke 1:27-35)

Four

We believe that man was created in the image of God, but through transgression, fell and died    spiritually; and that God sent   His Son Jesus Christ to suffer and die as the perfect sacrifice, that we might obtain through Him redemption and forgiveness of sin. (Genesis 2:16-17, 3:6-7, 1 Corinthians 15:21-22, 1 Peter 2:21-25)

Five

We believe that salvation is only obtained through repentance toward God and faith in the substitutionary atonement of the blood of Jesus Christ. There is nothing the sinner can do to save himself. (Ephesians 2:8-9, Romans 3:10-24, John 14:6)

Six

We believe in water baptism by immersion, as commanded in the Scriptures for all who repent and believe on the Lord Jesus Christ. (Matthew 28:19, Romans 6:4, Matthew 3:13-17)

Seven

Eight

Nine

We believe in the Baptism in the Holy Spirit as a separate and distinct baptism available to all believers. (Acts 2:4, 8:15-17, 10:44-48, 19:1-6)
We believe in the Church as the manifestation of God to a lost and dying world, an overcoming church revealing the wisdom and power of the Lord Jesus Christ. (Ephesians 3:9-11, Philippians 2:15-16, Matthew 16:18-19)
We believe in the five-fold ministry of Apostles, Prophets, Evangelists, Pastors, and Teachers as the tools for maturing the people of God. (Ephesians 4:11-16)
