Statement of Faith

At Portland Rescue Mission, we believe…


  • In the Bible, the inspired and authoritative Word of God.


  • In one God who exists eternally in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.


  • In the Deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Son of God, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His substitutionary and atoning death through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father and in His future personal return to rule in power and glory.


  • In the inborn sinfulness of all humanity and our resulting universal brokenness and alienation from God and others.


  • In God’s perfect love and holiness which initiated reconciliation to all who by faith receive Christ’s atoning death and regeneration by the Holy Spirit for complete forgiveness and eternal life.


  • In the empowering ministry of the Holy Spirit, who lives in Christians, thereby convicting and enabling each to live a godly life.


  • In the bodily resurrection and judgement of both the saved and the lost.


  • In the spiritual unity of the universal Church as the Body of Christ.
