About

The Presbytery of the Cascades is the regional governing body for 99 congregations in portions of Washington, Oregon and California. Our congregations provide a unique witness to Jesus Christ and strive to serve God in particular communities throughout our region. We are a council of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.)

Our Mission

Because God is at work in our world, the Presbytery of the Cascades commits to

  • encourage and support congregations to grow in their particular ministries.
  • support and care for those in leadership.
  • develop supportive relationships within the presbytery and with other sisters and  brothers in Christ.
  • inspire, equip and connect churches for mission and ministry.

What we believe

Our faith can be summarized with these words from The Brief Statement of Faith:  

In life and in death we belong to God. Through the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, the love of God, and the communion of the Holy Spirit, we trust in the one triune God, the Holy One of Israel, whom alone we worship and serve.
