Our Story

100 Years in Turner, and Counting!

Turner Christian Church was planted in Turner Oregon in 1919 by a group of 18 people meeting in the Presbyterian Church (now Angel's Share Barrel House). The first church building was dedicated as First Christian Church of Turner in 1924, on a plot of land along Mill Creek in the center of town (land that now belongs to Turner Retirement Homes).

After 70 years of faithful ministry in Turner, the church moved to its current location east of town through a land-swap with Turner Retirement Homes.  In 2019 we celebrated our centennial and are looking forward to another 100 years of building the kingdom of God in Turner, Oregon!

Our Heritage

Turner Christian Church is part of the Stone-Campbell movement, a tradition of churches reaching back to the early 1800's who sought to shed their denominational names and become "Christians only." These Christians were a major part of the Oregon Trail and the early growth of the State of Oregon, and there are many churches, who go under names like Christian Church, Church or Christ, or Disciples of Christ, across the Northwest.

Our shared heritage emphasizes the importance of uniting around Christ instead of denominational names and divisions, and at our best we try to be Christians only. 

Where we are headed...

Our church is passionately dedicated to the mission of Christ: to make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey the commands of Jesus. We believe that the future of the church--and our church in particular--lies in obeying those commands: especially by loving God and loving our neighbors. We have dedicated our future to finding ways to love our neighbors in concrete and powerful ways. We would love for you to be a part of that vision!
