What to Expect


At Portland Christian Center you will be welcomed into a friendly, casual atmosphere by people who are excited to see you and your family!   We are a non-denominational spirit filled church.  We, as a church, have endeavored to learn how to let Jesus be Jesus in our midst every service.  Our heart is that you will encounter Him in a way that changes your life forever!
At a service you can expect:
*  Usually service lasts about an hour and a half to two hours
*  You will find people dressed in a wide variety of styles from  jeans or shorts to those dressed more formally
*  High energy praise songs followed by engaging God centered worship
*  Powerful preaching and relevant teaching
*  Your kids will learn the truth about who God is and who they are because of Him through fun age-focused lessons
*  Unrehearsed outbreaks of praise & joyful celebration of God’s goodness
*  Bits of knowledge & wisdom given at the moment by Divine inspiration that builds faith & encourages
*  Prayer for healing and/or specific needs at unplanned times during the service
*  Times of complete silence because God’s presence is so strong

The absence of a strict and formal regimen, combined with a strong expectation for God to demonstrate his goodness, has attributed to many people receiving life-changing miracles and manifestations of answered prayer in our services. This also causes an excitement and anticipation in every service because we don’t know exactly what’s going to happen — but we do know it’s going to be good, and it’s going to be God!
