Southwest Church of Christ
A congregation located in Tigard, Oregon since 1973. We offer members - and visitors - a chance to become part of something greater. To grow in their love of God and for one another within our beautiful community.
What we Believe
About the Scriptures
We believe the Bible is the inspired Word of God and that men were moved by the Spirit of God to write the words of Scripture. His message is powerful and lasting - our standard for living.
We believe in one God who exists in three distinct persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. We believe that Jesus Christ became flesh to reveal God to humanity and to become the Savior of the lost world.
We believe that all people were created in the image of God to have fellowship with Him but became alienated from that relationship by sin. As a result people are incapable of regaining a right relationship with God through their own efforts.
We believe the blood of Jesus Christ, shed on the cross, provides the sole basis for forgiveness of sin. Therefore, God freely offers salvation to those who confess their belief in Jesus Christ and accept His grace through baptism.
About the Christian Life
We believe Christians should focus on living for God, loving each other and lighting the world. By obedience to the Word of God and daily yielding to the Spirit of God, every believer will mature and be conformed to the image of Christ, serving under His example.
About the Church
We believe the church is the body of Christ, of which Jesus Christ is the head. The members of the church are those who trust by faith in Christ. The purpose of the church is to glorify God by loving Him and making Him known to the lost world.
We believe worship should be in spirit and truth. Worship is directed to God in adoration of Him as a direct response from a heart of gratitude. Our worship is simple and our singing is acapella. Our individual lives express our daily worship.
By 2023 Southwest will be a vibrant, growing body of faithful, Spirit-led believers focused on Kingdom Growth and making disciples of Christ in the power of God.
