About Us

The Church of God, Northwest Region is part of The Church of God with general headquarters in Cleveland, TN, and Bishop Stephen E. Smith serving as the current general overseer. The Northwest Region includes Western Montana, Northern Idaho, Washington State and Oregon.


The Church of God is dedicated to spreading the Gospel and teachings of Jesus Christ world-wide. We strive to teach the whole Bible, rightly divided, with the New Testament as our rule of faith, practice, government and discipline, which means that our emphasis is on the New Testament church model established by Jesus and further outlined by His Apostles under the direction of the Holy Spirit. However, we do not single out any scripture or passage to the exclusion of any other, thus assuring that the ministry does not twist any part of the Bible to fit a personal interpretation, which would not be in line with and further supported by the rest of God's Word.


The Apostle Paul instructed Timothy to study to show himself approved of God, a workman that needed not to be ashamed, "rightly dividing the word of truth." We believe that, in so doing, we need never be ashamed of what we have believed and taught when we are called upon to give an account of those who have heard the Word through the teaching of the Church.


We believe that the Bible is the divinely inspired and infallible Word of God, intended by God to provided His guidance and instruction for every area of our lives and to serve as the ultimate authority on every subject that pertains to life and eternity.


As such, we believe that forgiveness and deliverance from sin, as well as eternal salvation and present sanctification are received by faith, through Jesus Christ alone. We believe in the baptism of the Holy Ghost and that the indwelling of Christ and present influence of the Holy Spirit in our lives ought to produce a holy life that is evident in all arenas of life. Furthermore, we believe that by living such a life, we should have a powerful impact on the world we live in.
