Who We Are
In January 2021, CB Northwest became Church Venture Northwest. Continuing with the same identity as before, Church Venture strives to help every church take bold next steps to strengthen, revitalize, and plant new churches in the Pacific Northwest.
We currently serve 247 churches in Alaska, Washington, Oregon, and Idaho. We are one of the eight regions represented in the Venture Church Network.
We envision a covenant community of churches committed to the glory of God, centered on the gospel, changing our communities by being doctrinally sound, missionally driven, and culturally sensitive - which includes culturally appropriate evangelism, leaders mentoring the next generation of leaders, and churches planting churches through Great Commandment love, Great Commission purpose, and Great Confession dependency.
Helping every church take bold next steps, to strengthen, revitalize, and plant new churches in the Pacific Northwest.
- We value covenant community as defined by our Identity Document (doctrine, philosophy, polity).
- We value truth, calling our community to a comprehensive Christian worldview that impacts every aspect of life, emphasizing a Trinitarian God and gospel power in and through our culture.
- We value the local church as God's ordained instrument for advancing His Kingdom.
- We value a missional church perspective, mobilizing our churches to invade a Christ-less culture and helping our churches to equip all as "sent ones."
- We value relational healing and church renewal by providing a network of specialists to serve through consultation, mediation, solemn assemblies, and strategic prayer.
- We value leaders as examples of, and catalysts for: health, change, growth, and multiplication; helping them to: assess, train, coach, and mentor.
- We value synergistic responsibility, networking resources for strategic success.
- We value Kingdom advancement by calling churches and leaders to cooperate at sacrificial levels in the cause of making Christ's Church a presence in every community in the Northwest and beyond through strategic partnerships, joint efforts (e.g., area associations planting churches), and sending missionaries at home and abroad.
- We value the fluid and dynamic nature of these core values and are committed to ongoing evaluation as the Spirit leads.
