Who We Are
Loving God & Loving Others
We're a group of people who focus on loving God with our whole selves, and genuinely loving the people around us! Simple as it sounds, we believe it has the power to change people, relationships and our community. You might recognize it from Jesus' words: "'Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.’ The second is this: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no commandment greater than these” (Mark 12:30-31).
What does it look like to be a church that loves God and loves people in Salem, Oregon? Whether it's through our sermons, our events, or our community partners, we want our church to be known as a:
Place of Inspiring Beauty
Training Facility for Life
Hospital for the Hurting
Vibrant Community Center
You may have heard before "Every church is different." So when Court Street Leadership paused to reflect on what makes this church unique, we realized these values shape all that we do.
Proclaiming Biblical truth for life-change
Uniting with other churches to build God's Kingdom
Embracing authentic Christ-centered relationships with others through Small Groups
Creating environments that welcome all people in Jesus' name, especially the hurting and hopeless
Giving our efforts, abilities, and resources to reach those no one else is reaching
Living as contributors, not as consumers or critics
