Rev. Dr. John Neal, Pastor

We look forward to seeing you!
Our pastor, The Reverend Dr. John Neal.
Protestants in general and Presbyterians in particular have always been very interested in being theologically grounded. We have believed deeply in the importance of a theologically educated clergy and a theologically informed laity, and we have claimed that theology actually matters to those Christians who make up the Body of Christ. But we have to be especially careful lest we give the idea that correct theology only has to do with voicing answers to intellectual questions.
Here in Keizer in the year 2017, we are living in a special time and in a special place, where what is most critical is not having the right answer or even the right theology but rather being the people of God in real situations. And at John Knox PC we put a lot of energy into being committed to actually working toward becoming more like Christ in the way we live, love and work.
In the history of the Christian Church there have been those who found their own identity primarily by showing their difference from other followers of Christ. I am particularly pleased by the high level of trust and comradeship that is present among the majority of the Christian churches here in Salem-Keizer and their willingness to share our common ministry for Christ. We will continue to seek to be more concerned with that common shared ecumenical belief that unites, rather than excludes, all Christians.
Yours in the Love of Christ,
Don't forget to change your clocks back an hour
