PRINCE OF PEACE FELLOWSHIP
"For He Himself is our peace........."
OUR VISION STATEMENT
We see the church as mentioned in Acts 15:15-18:
"And with this the words of the prophets agree, just as it is written:
'After this I will return And will rebuild the tent of David, which has fallen down;
I will rebuild its ruins, And I will set it up; So that the rest of mankind may seek
the LORD, Even all the Gentiles who are called by My name, Says the LORD
who does all these things.' Known to God from eternity are all His works."
The Prince of Peace is not a place or property. We are a moveable tent; a Tabernacle.
We believe in group ministry. We are a sanctuary, a refuge for the weary and wounded, a refreshing in the waters of word and spirit.
Therefore the emphasis is on people, not things. We are called to a journey
of transformation until we are like Him. We emphasize a life of Worship and praise. We are called to the Narrow way, the Ancient Path, walked by believers from Noah to the present. We believe the church is to be led by the Holy Spirit who guides us into all truth. We are to prepare for His return and to strengthen and encourage each other to go out and prepare others.
To accomplish this we teach and encourage one another to have a deep personal
relationship with Christ. Every person who believes has direct access to God.
We must therefore learn to grow in intimacy and relationship with our Father. We are to
witness, by our life style, the light that we carry, His presence, His love living in us.
On this site are links to where you can hear music originating from this fellowship as well as writings
of all kinds regarding the Kingdom of God and our journey on the earth.
May you be blessed and encouraged by your visit here or come and see us in person.
HISTORY and INFORMATION
THE PRINCE OF PEACE FELLOWSHIP
began in a small Christian
CoffeeHouse in the 1970's in the basement of The Friendly Chapel
Church in Southwest Portland in the midst of revival.
It progressed to a larger coffeehouse setting upstairs in a gym with a parachute hanging from the ceiling, homemade baked
goodies, Russian Tea, coffee, Christian bands and wonderful fellowship.
Friendly Chapel eventually became The Prince of Peace Fellowship.
As more and more people flooded into the little church it
became necessary to provide places to live where new
converts could get ministry and help in a safe environment.
This brought on the opening of nine Christian community
houses and later, as families grew and produced children,
we started a Christian School.
There were many gifted, dedicated and precious people that
were a part of the ministry of the church. God has taken many of these people to other churches, states, and countries to be used in ministry.
We believed (and still do) in group ministry. Thirty five years later our Sunday meeting is a smaller group, dedicated to Christ and to equipping each another.
We meet on Sundays and in homes during the week.
