About Christ Gospel Church Northwest Coast Ministries


Our Organization

Christ Gospel Church Northwest Coast Ministries

Christ Gospel Church of Tacoma, WA and Christ Gospel Church of Portland, OR are independently organized and governed. We are a Spirit Filled Church teaching principles of spiritual growth from Genesis to Revelation. Our church is an affiliate of Christ Gospel Churches, International headquartered in Jeffersonville, Indiana under the leadership of our Founder and Director, Reverend B.R. Hicks.

Christ Gospel Church in Tacoma and Portland are a fundamentalist, Pentecostal Christian group. Like most Christian denominations, it espouses a set of doctrines known as the Apostles’ Creed. Like most Pentecostal groups, the churches believe in the baptism of the Holy Spirit with the evidence of speaking in other tongues and Christ Gospel services are exuberant celebrations. People sing, shout, dance, clap, run, praise, and worship God with all of their being.

We believe it is no accident that you have come across our online ministry. It is our prayer that you will be blessed and encouraged by the contents of our web ministry.
