Revelation 14:12 says that there will be a group of people in the last days, who will keep the commandments of God and have the faith of Jesus.
We want to be part of that group. We would love for you to join with us.
We believe the Bible is the inspired Word of God and is profitable for correction, reproof, and instruction in righteousness. (See 2 Timothy 3:16.)
We accept the Bible as our only authority and hold certain fundamental beliefs to be the teaching of the Holy Scriptures. Our method of scriptural interpretation, letting scripture interpret scripture, precept must be upon precept, line upon line, here a little, and there a little,- is not based on tradition but is based upon the Bible alone (Isaiah 28:10, 13). The truth of the Bible is bigger than any church or denomination and the Bible is our final authority.
We believe that Jesus is the eternal, self-existent God and is not a created being. Even though He is fully God, He took upon Himself the form of a man to live and die for our sins and rose again. Jesus is the only way that we can be saved. (Acts 4:12)
We believe that the penalty for man's sin was paid on the cross of Calvary in Jesus' death. "For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord" (Romans 6:23). The Old Testament Sanctuary service shows this way of salvation through Jesus. By believing on Jesus Christ and accepting the grace of His shed blood, we receive the gift of eternal life. "Not of works, lest any man should boast" (Ephesians 2:9).
Because we love Jesus for His sacrificial death, we want to obey Him as he commands in John 14:15. We are not saved by our works. But, because we are saved, we choose to keep His commandments as the guide for successful living.
We believe that prophecy reveals Jesus is coming again very soon. (See Matthew 24:32-51.)
Pastor Steve Rogers was born and raised in Kelso, Washington. He attended the Seventh-day Adventist Church along with his parents, one sister and five brothers. At the age of 15, his sister died from cancer and he realized he’d never see her again in this world. He knew she possessed something in her relationship with Jesus that he didn’t have. He took his Bible and began to read it and study it like he’d never done before.
In its pages he found hope of eternity with Jesus. Peace and joy filled his heart and he realized he would one day be reunited with his sister.
A desire to share this Good News with others began to grow and he became a Bible Worker for the Kelso-Longview Seventh Day Adventist Church. He continued with this ministry, working with Pastor Dave Livermore for about nineteen years and was blessed with more than 140 baptisms.
In 2008, Steve was asked to come to the Upper Columbia Conference and develop a network of Bible Instructor Coordinators for each district. They affirmed his calling in the ministry and he was ordained in the summer of 2012.
Things began to change with the finances of the conference and Steve was asked to accept the 4-church district of Orofino, Weippe, Kamiah and Grangeville. He became their pastor in the summer of 2014.
Steve enjoys sharing God’s love and hope with others. He also enjoys camping, visiting and having fun (playing games, music and hiking) with his wife Becki and their two daughters and their husbands. He relishes any time he gets with his brothers and their families.
His favorite scripture is Luke12:32… “Fear not little flock, for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom.”
