Helping People

Know and Follow Jesus

Countryside is a Christian Church in Keizer, Oregon that is dedicated to helping people know and follow Jesus one person at a time

With that calling in mind, we focus on our "Big 3"

  • Pursuing God through His Word
  • Building Community through relationships
  • Unleashing Compassion in our world

We strive to love Jesus and love others as we pursue the great commission

"Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age." Matthew 28:19-20

  • He is the one and only true God (Deuteronomy 4:35), the Creator (Genesis 1:1) of all things and infinitely perfect (Matthew 5:48), and externally existing in 3 persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit (Genesis 1:26)

  • He is both God and man, and has always existed (John 1:1-2). He was conceived by the Holy Spirit, and born of the virgin Mary (Matthew 1:18). He lived a sinless life (John 8:29) and was crucified on the cross as a sacrifice for our sins in order to offer us salvation (1 Peter 2:24). Three days later, He rose from the dead (Luke 24:1-8) and ascended into heaven, where He now reigns as our High Priest and Mediator (Hebrews 4:14)

  • The Holy Spirit's ministry is to glorify Jesus Christ and, during this age, to convict mankind of their sin (John 16:8). The Holy Spirit is the seal and guarantee of the gift of salvation (Ephesians 1:13-14). He indwells (John 16:13), guides, instructs, comforts (John 14:26) and empowers (Galatians 5:22) every believer for godly living and service

  • All of Scripture is the inspired Word of God (2 Timothy 3:16). It is without error in their original writings, and they are the complete revelation of God's will for the salvation of mankind. The Scriptures are the divine and final authority for all Christian faith and life (2 Peter 1:20-21)

  • All man is in need of salvation from the punishment of sin (Romans 6:23). Salvation is offered to man by God through the sacrificial atonement of Jesus Christ (1 John 2:2). Salvation is available to all who confess with their mouth that Jesus is Lord and that believe God raised Him from the dead (Romans 10:9). Salvation is a gift of God through faith apart from works (Ephesians 2:8-9)

  • The Church is all people who have placed their faith in Jesus Christ. The church is a gathering together of believers for corporate worship and teaching of God's Word (Acts 2:42). The church is committed to following Jesus and carrying out the Great Commission of making disciples of every nation (Matthew 28:19-20)
