We are ordinary people, growing closer to
God and helping others along the way.

Willamette Community Church is a group of ordinary people who desire to grow closer to God and live out His mission for us in our lives. 


As you navigate our site, you will learn more about our beliefs, our staff, and our story. We would also like to extend an invitation for you to join us for our weekly Worship Service. If you'd like to know a little more about us or how you can connect with our community, check out our various ministries to help you find a place to belong. 


Willamette Community Church is also home to Albany Christian School, which has been educating students in an atmosphere of love and excellence since 1964.
