Molalla Foursquare Church exists for the purpose of creating a culture that honors Jesus Christ, depends on the Holy Spirit, and gives glory to God our Father.

We believe our mission is to gather those who truly desire to experience God and his kingdom in their everyday lives. We desire to  prepare Christians to be the hands and feet of Christ in Molalla, in the workplace, in schools, and wherever there are people in need of a real and personal relationship with Jesus Christ. We believe our purpose is to send people into the various fields and ministries where God has called them.

We celebrate our glorious God every time we meet together. We do this through worship which includes contemporary music and singing. We teach directly from the Word of God. We believe it is His Word that prepares us for life both now and eternally. We pray together, laugh together, cry together, and support one another with fearless love.

We believe that it is our mandate to bring the kingdom of heaven into our earthly lives. We want to understand the keys of the kingdom and access the treasure chest which is His kingdom. We believe there is life, healing, provision, deliverance, restoration, hope and peace found there. We seek God with all our hearts and pray to receive his kingdom and will into our earthly existence.

We believe that all people have unique identities in Christ that were given to them before the creation of the world. We know that God has uniquely created and called each person to a personal and real relationship with Him. We celebrate diversity and esteem one another as individuals who have been created and called to fulfill specific purposes in God’s kingdom.

We believe that these are the days of the ‘Great Harvest.’ We understand that God has called us to take the good news of the Kingdom to all mankind. We know that real church takes place outside the building. Although we meet together regularly, each person goes out to hurting people taking good news and truly being Christ’s church, his body on the earth. Our mission is to evangelize the world and usher in God’s Kingdom.


A New Direction

Molalla Foursquare Church has been located at 32328 S. Molalla Ave on the outskirts of the city for 24 years. After much prayer, we have received direction from the Holy Spirit regarding the location of our church. We believe that in order for God to do what He wants with Molalla Foursquare Church and for the community of Molalla, we need to be right in the middle of the city. Many confirmations have also come regarding the move. We believe that God wants us to be physically located in the center of the community and that the facility will be a ‘heart’ from which will flow spiritual life into the community. We see this as blood vessels that carry the blessings of God into the city. Our desire is to reach the community in a way that not only blesses them spiritually, but provides physical blessings as well. We long for our new facility to be a “center” that people from Molalla can come to be refreshed and blessed in every way through the meeting of their needs. We also believe that it will be a “sending center” from which we will commission many people to go into the community in various ways to meet pressing needs of our neighbors. We believe we are to serve the community, supply the community, and bless the community with the all encompassing love of Jesus Christ. Because of this new direction from God, our pastors, elders, church council and congregation have all approved the moving forward of God’s plan. We are in the process of putting our current property on the market and pursuing a property located on Main Street near the city center. We are excited about what God is doing in our church and what he wants to do in the community of Molalla. We believe that God has a plan for Molalla which includes the increase of his kingdom through many people coming to know Jesus and much blessing flowing into the community. Our desire is to meet physical needs of Molalla folks. We want to extend God’s love in applicable, physical ways. We want to become a relevant partner of the Molalla community. We believe this is God’s direction for us and it is our passion to fulfill his will and touch our city with God’s love. We do not fully know God’s timing, but we believe that his will is to accomplish this quickly. We covet your prayers and partnership in this exciting adventure that is being orchestrated by God. We are asking God to move quickly, provide the necessary funding, and literally open the windows of heaven to pour out his blessing on our church and the Molalla community. We will post updates here and on our Facebook page, Molalla Foursquare Church.

God continues to bless us and open doors. We have been able to purchase some new chairs and tables. Through an amazing divine appointment created by the Holy Spirit, we have had over $1000 of chairs and equipment donated to us. New doors continue to open that only God can open. All things are in his hands, and he is moving on our behalf.

Jesus Christ is our Savior
Christ, the Son of God, died on the cross for the sins of humanity. Belief in his atoning death brings forgiveness and eternal life.

Isaiah 53:5 – “But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities; the chastisement for our peace was upon Him…” (KJV)

Jesus Christ is our Baptizer with the Holy Spirit
When Jesus ascended, he gave the Holy Spirit to dwell in believers. The Spirit serves as counselor, guide, comforter, and Christ’s real presence on earth.

Acts 1:5,8 – “For John truly baptized with water, but you shall be baptized with the Holy Spirit … you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witnesses to Me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.” (KJV)

Jesus Christ is our Healer
Christ’s healing ministry continues today. While on earth, he went about healing people of physical, emotional, and spiritual ills. Healing is one of the gifts of the Holy Spirit.

Matthew 8:17 – “He Himself took our infirmities and bore our sicknesses…” (KJV)

Jesus Christ is our Soon Coming King
The Bible promises that Christ will come again. The Foursquare Church teaches that his Second Coming will be soon and will be a joyful time for believers.

1 Thessalonians 4:16-17 – “For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout … the dead in Christ will rise first. Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And thus we shall always be with the Lord.” (KJV)
