Our Story

Come and see what God has done.

We as a local church have a special story of what God has done.  Sisters Community Church began when Sisters Baptist Church and Cascade Community Church merged in the 1990's. Soon, the church grew and added the main sanctuary and Student Center.  For many years, it was the home of Sisters Christian Academy.  Currently, we are finding new ways to reach into our community with Christ's love.
Our history is part of who we are, but doesn't define us - Christ does.  So, we continue to move forward in our desire to love and serve God and others.   We are not perfect and we are learning to give grace to each other as we grow more like Jesus.  Come join us in this journey as we connect with God, care for people, and cultivate community here in beautiful Sisters, Oregon!

WHAT WE BELIEVE

We believe the following to be true:

  • We believe that the Bible is God’s Word. It is accurate, authoritative and applicable for belief and behavior.
  • We believe in one eternal God who is the Creator of all things. He exists relationally in three Persons: God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit.
  • We believe that our world is broken as a result of sin which has corrupted our relationship with God, one another and creation.
  • We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ is both God and man and is the only One who can restore our relationship with God. He lived a sinless life as an example. He died on the cross in our place, and rose again victorious over sin and death.      
  • We believe that in order to experience the life of Christ, receive forgiveness and the new birth, we must come to the realization about our sins and believe in the Lord Jesus Christ.
  • We believe that in order to fulfill God’s design for us each day, we need to be empowered by the Holy Spirit who gives us spiritual gifts and enables us to demonstrate his fruit in our lives.
  • We believe Jesus established and is building his church, and it is necessary for followers of Jesus to come together regularly for fellowship, teaching, prayer, the celebration of communion and water baptism.
  • We believe that man’s eternal experience of either Life (Heaven) or Death (Hell) is determined by one’s response to the Lord Jesus Christ.
  • We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ is coming back again as He promised to reign forever in a new heaven and a new earth.
  • We believe marriage was created and was sanctioned by God, joining one man and one woman in a single, exclusive union.
  • We believe God created spirit beings, some of whom are faithful to God and others who are in rebellion against God’s purposes.
This statement of faith does not exhaust the extent of our faith.
