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 come together in prayer and pray for our broken world, and our broken selves. 


Only in the Cross of Christ will we receive power when we are powerless.  We will find strength

when we are weak. We will experience hope when our situation is hopeless. 

Only in the cross is there peace for our troubled hearts. 

Michael Youssef        

What benefits do we receive from the Sacrament of Holy Communion

The benefits of this 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

Holy Communion is offered to all who accept Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior and believe that he gave his life on the cross to save us from our sins.
