What to Expect
If you are a first-time guest, welcome. We want you to feel comfortable, welcome, and able to connect with God through worship and with the family here at Culver through fellowship.
In our worship service, we have a mix of contemporary and traditional music. Don’t worry about what to wear. You may see some people in ties, and others in blue jeans- but we are all here to worship together.
We have communion once a week. It is an open invitation for believers to examine themselves and decide if they would like to participate.
We have blue information cards available to fill out, located at the back of the sanctuary and in each row of pews. If you would like to be included on our online weekly bulletin email, if you have a prayer request, or any questions we can answer, you can fill out the blue information card and we'll reach out to you.
If you are thinking of visiting and would like to know more, or if you've already visited us and have questions, please feel free to contact Pastor Chris at (541) 788-3078.
Who We Are
If you are looking for a church home, you will want to know what we are all about. The following will give you a good sense of our church background:
In 1809, the following quote from Thomas Campbell helped solidify a movement, “Where the Bible speaks, we speak; where the Bible is silent, we are silent.”
Culver Christian Church was born out of this movement. We believe that it articulates the proper approach toward God and His Scripture.
We are an independent, non-denominational church that believes the Bible to be the inspired infallible Word of God (2 Tim. 3:16-17).
Jesus Christ was virgin-born, sinless, died on the cross for sins, was raised from the dead on the third day, ascended into heaven and is coming again for His Church
(Matt. 1:18, Heb. 4:15, 1 Cor. 15:3-4, Jn. 14:3, Acts 1:6-14).
Salvation is a gift, bestowed by God’s grace and received by faith (Eph. 2:8-9).
Baptism is immersion in water of a professed believer (Acts 8:36-39). Romans 6:1-4 testifies that through immersion we are baptized into Jesus’ death; being an image of Jesus’ death, burial and resurrection.
A believer’s Salvation is secured by and through Christ alone (John 10:18-27).
The Church is the bride of Christ (Eph. 5:23-33), and the body of Christ (1 Cor. 12).
The local Church is locally governed by Godly men known as elders (Titus 1:5).
The purpose of the Church on earth is to fulfill the last command of Jesus (Matt. 28:18-20).
Individual Christians are empowered and receive gifts from the Holy Spirit, not for themselves but to minister to the Church (Rom. 12:4-8, 1 Cor. 12:1-11).
The Holy Spirit enters and lives in believers at the time of conversion (Eph. 1:13-14), to guide, empower, teach and comfort each of us.
In essentials of the faith, Unity.
In the non-essentials, Diversity.
And in all things, Love.
