For more than 50 years Tucker Road Baptist Church has been faithfully serving the Lord Jesus Christ in Hood River, Oregon. Our vision embraces two essential biblical commands: The Great Commission, The Great Commandment, and a promise, The Fellowship of the Believers.
The Great Commission
Matthew 28:18-20, Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been give to Me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have command- ed you. And surly I am with you always, even to the very end of the age.”
Our Vision, as we live our day-to-day lives, to be consciously aware of the Holy Spirit's leading to share Christ, to see people come to Christ, to rejoice when they are baptized, and to walk with them as they learn to follow Christ, and make Him the Lord of their Life.
The Great Commandment
Matthew 22:36-40, “Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?” Jesus replied: “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: Love your neighbor as yourself. All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.”
Our Vision, as we live our day-to-day lives, to be consciously aware to love the Lord our God with all our heart, soul, mind, body, and strength, and to love one other's the way Jesus loves us. Jesus says that all of the Bible hangs on this depth of love.
The Fellowship of the Believers
Acts 2:42, They devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and to the fellowship, to the breaking of bread, and to prayer.
Acts 2:43, Everyone was filled with awe at the many wonders and signs performed by the Apostles.
Acts 2:47,.....And the Lord added to their numbers daily those who were being saved.
Our Vision, as we live our day-to-day lives, to be consciously aware that we each personally need to be devoted to reading and studying God's Word personally and corporately, to seek out other's for fellowship and community, and to fellowship with our Heavenly Father daily through prayer. And He will bless.
