Westside Bible Fellowship has been ministering to the needs of people in the community and the world for more than four decades.
Our story began in 1979 when several families from Laurel Park Bible Chapel in Portland (now Spring Mountain Bible Church) began meeting for Bible study in one of their homes in Washington County. In 1980, they began formally meeting as a church. A year later, they rented the Odd Fellows Hall in Aloha. In February 1983, we purchased the Elks Hall at 9th and Walnut in Hillsboro.
By 2000, we had outgrown the building and needed more space. We demolished the building and began construction on a new facility at the same location. For the next couple of years we used four different rented facilities. In the spring of 2004, construction was completed on our current facility.
But buildings aside - and we never want the focus to be on buildings because the church is all about God and his relationship with and work in the hearts of people. Over the years we have seen God do wonderful things in the lives of people who have come through our doors as well as those who live in our communities and in other nations.
The final chapter in our story has not been written. We're trusting the Lord to continue to change lives through this local expression of the Church, the spiritual body of Christ.
