A Message from Our Pastor

Thanks for taking time to visit the Mt. Olivet Website.  We have discovered that so many visitors to our website and our church are searching for answers to some of life’s most challenging questions. As we continue to build and arrange this site, it is our hope that you will find relevant links, information and answers for various areas of your life. 

At Mt. Olivet, the Bible – God’s word – is the final source of authority for what we believe and practice.  We believe the Scriptures are timeless, inspired by God to show us what is right, what is wrong, how to get right, and how to stay right (2 Timothy 3:16).

You should know that the Mt. Olivet church family is made up of all kinds of people - people just like you.  We continue our efforts to make it a friendly and relevant place that offers something for almost everyone, regardless of their stage in life.

Our desire is that many, many people will come to know and experience the unconditional love of God.  The greatest demonstration of that love was when God gave His Son, Jesus Christ, to die for our sins on the cross and raised Him from the grave.  Therefore, the forgiveness of sin is freely available to every single person who will accept Christ as Savior and Lord. 

As you browse our website, we pray you will see, read, or hear something that will educate, inspire and encourage you in your life’s journey.  If you are ever in the Portland area, we would be honored if you stopped by to worship with us at one of our Sunday celebration services.

Grace, mercy and peace,

Pastor James Martin
