Mission Statement


We share the Word of God and demonstrate the love of Christ to transform the lives of homeless and addicted people.

Description


Since 1949, Portland Rescue Mission has provided hope for the homeless. We offer much more than a meal and a helping hand. We focus on total life recovery, helping individuals transform their lives to become productive members of Portland's community. At Portland Rescue Mission, our professional staff works to break the cycle of homelessness with every man and woman who walks through our doors. From our men's shelter on Burnside Street, to Shepherd's Door, our long-term recovery facility for homeless women and children, we strive to change lives through our ministry. We provide skills training, education, counseling and vocational assistance to help people get back on their feet.

Organizational Statement of Faith


In the Bible, the Word of God ‚– inspired, inerrant, and authoritative. In one God who exists eternally in three persons; Father, Son and Holy Spirit. In the Deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His substitutionary and atoning death through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father and in His future personal return to rule in power and glory. In the inborn sinfulness of all humanity and our resulting alienation from God, and the absolute necessity of redemption through faith in Christ ‚’s atoning death and regeneration by the Holy Spirit for salvation. In the complete forgiveness and eternal salvation of the true believer. In the empowering ministry of the Holy Sprit, who lives in Christians, thereby enabling each to live a godly life. In the bodily resurrection and eternal conscious existence of both the saved and the lost ‚– the saved in eternal life and the lost in everlasting punishment. In the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ.
