Oakridge Assembly of God

Welcome to the


Assembly of God! 

We are glad you dropped by for a quick visit.  Look around our site and feel free to email us with any questions you may have about our Church and the people who make it a family. 

Oakridge, Oregon is a small community of about 3500 people located in the foothills of the western slope of the Cascade mountains.  The town is surrounded by thousands of acres of National Forest and five rivers and streams converge within a small radius of the community.

Our Church is located in the middle of town along one of the busiest highways in Oregon.  God placed us here for a purpose and although it has been many years we still believe that purpose is being fulfilled.

We are here to serve God and You!

Tested and Strengthened

Read Luke 3:1 through 4:15

Published: Sep 26, 2017

Those who witnessed Jesus’ baptism saw and heard God’s declaration that Jesus is His Son. Soon after this, the Holy Spirit led Jesus into the desert to be tested and tempted by Satan. Christ passed those tests and returned from them empowered by the Holy Spirit.

Jesus returned to Galilee in the power of the Spirit, and news about him spread through the whole countryside (Luke 4:14).

Many people don’t realize that the Holy Spirit actively participated throughout the series of events in Luke 3 and 4. He was with Jesus the whole time, guiding and strengthening Him. Tests and temptations can bring strength and empowerment to a Christian’s life.

God wants us to see testing as an opportunity rather than just a struggle. Tests provide the opportunity to learn to trust God more fully. They help us discover the strength God can provide for those of us who faithfully persevere in those times of testing.

Thought for Today: The Holy Spirit wants to use the tests and temptations of life to draw Christians closer to Christ.

Quicklook: Luke 4:9–15
