Smyrna: The Persecuted Church s1-624

April 21st, 2013Revelation 2:8-11

Jesus speaks to the church in Smyrna, a church going through tribulation and poverty. But Jesus calls them rich. Study through the Bible what God says about persecution and struggle. His promises are true always. In our daily walk with Jesus, are we being salt and light in a dark world? Learn about the persecuted church throughout history and today, even as we see a changing tide toward Christianity in our culture. Reading these Scriptures, we set our eyes on Jesus, who overcame all sin and death.

Brett is our senior pastor. He and his family moved to Portland in 1996 to start Athey Creek Christian Fellowship. As our church has grown, Brett’s main focus has remained the same: pointing people to Jesus by teaching through God’s Word, verse-by-verse, book-by-book and chapter-by-chapter. Brett and his wife, Debbie, have three children: Brooke, Joey and Casey.
