Here at FBC Umatilla we desire to reach people beyond the doors of our church.  We believe that we are the hands and feet of Christ, and we want to meet people’s needs both physically and spiritually.  As Christians we are called to more. To give more.  To love more.  To become more so that Christ is more in this world.

For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand so that we would walk in them. Ephesians 2:10 

At FBC Umatilla we believe God is doing incredible things, and we love being part of His vision for our lives,  We want more than anything to tell the people of the world about what Jesus Christ has done for us, as well as taking care of people.  Whether broken, healing, or healthy spiritually and physically, we want to love you with the love of Christ.

This is how we know what love is: Jesus Christ laid down his life for us. And we ought to lay down our lives for our brothers and sisters. If anyone has material possessions and sees a brother or sister in need but has no pity on them, how can the love of God be in that person? Dear children, let us not love with words or speech but with actions and in truth. 1 John 3:16-18

We have some great ministries that we would love for you to be part of if you are in need or if you are looking for a place to serve.
