A Message from the Pastor – Hope International Baptist Church
"For Internationals . . . and Those Who Love Internationals!"

Welcome to our Family

Many people have asked, “Why an International Church?   Don’t most people go to a church where they speak a common language?”  In a world that is getting increasingly smaller, it is appropriate that all of us who call ourselves followers of Jesus gather together to Worship God in the neighborhoods where we live not matter what language is spoken in the home.  There are many advantages to being involved in an International Church.  Here are just a few:

  1.  Your family can have a cross-cultural experience without leaving the country.
  2.  If you kids go to school in the Portland area, they already share a classroom with kids of many different cultures.
  3.  We grow so much deeper when we share the ways that we follow God in our own various cultures.

We pray that you will consider being part of our International Family and contribute your own unique culture with the rest of us.

Blessings, Pastor Rob
