On Wednesdays, we host a community meal at 6:00pm, followed by Bible classes for all ages. On a Sunday morning, our regular attendance is around 160 people. As a congregation, we teach faith, repentance, and baptism for salvation, and are dedicated to spending time in the Word and in prayer, learning and growing together as the Body of Christ.
We are a multigenerational congregation. We have several members who have attended our congregation for 50+ years.

The mission of the Newberg Church of Christ is: Love God, serve our neighbors, and grow followers of Jesus.
