Who We Are



Peace is a Lutheran Church established in North Portland in 1892.  We are Christians that believe in the teachings of Martin Luther, The Holy Trinity, The Holy Bible and the sacrament of Holy Communion.  We believe that  Jesus died on the cross for us and therefore through God's grace we are saved.

We are a body of Christians working together to help bring people to Christ through his teachings,  We believe and confess the Apostles Creed, the Nicene Creed and the Lords prayer. We follow the teaching of the Martin Luther and the Small Catechism  We come together in prayer and pray for our broken world, and our broken selves. 


The cry of Christ on the cross should remind everyone that God always hears their prayers, even when he seems distant
“Let us bring to God our daily crosses, in the certainty that he is present and listens to us,”


Holy Communion

for the forgiveness of sin

The sacrament are pointed out by the words, 

given and shed for you for the remission of sins.                These words assure us that in the sacrament we receive forgiveness of sins, life, and salvation. For where there is forgiveness of sins, there is also life and salvation.   

Holy Communion

We are to receive these gifts of bread and wine, of Christ's body and blood, in faith, trusting that in this meal our Lord comes to us, forgives us our sins, renews us in faith and leads us into new life. 


Weekly communion is offered to all who believe and are seeking forgiveness.
