PO Box 2170
The Dalles, OR 97058
Mission Statement: 

As servants of the Lord Jesus Christ, the purpose of this Christian oraganization shall be the spiritual, emotional, and physicial restoration of women and their children in the Columbia Gorge area trapped in the bondage of drugs, alcohol or other destructive life styles who are seeking refuge from a sin-filled world. We believe that God has directed us through His Word to respond to people in need. To respond, we will address the spiritual and emotional issues in people's lives, and provide for them the basic essentials of food, shelter, clothing and love. We will also provide opportunities for training and personal development with the goal that they would become God-dependent, contributing members of society. This work will take place in an environment that appropriately ministers to women and their children through the saving gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ.

Organizational Statement of Faith: 

*We hold the Bible to be God's Holy Word in it entirety and inspired in every part by the Holy Spirit. We believe the Bible is the only scripture inspired of God and there are no other inspired scriptures. (2 Tim. 3:16; 2 Pet. 1:21)
*We hold that man was created in the image of God, holy and innocent; that of his own choice, he sinned, and, as a result brought death upon all humanity (Rom. 3:23; 5:12, 6:23). Those who are not saved from sin are eternally seperated from God (John 3:18; 2 Thess. 1:6-10).
*We hold that Jesus Christ is God , the second person of the trinity, born of a virgin, that He gave His life on the cross where He, who knew no sin, was made sin for us; that He was buried and arose again from the dead, afterward He ascended into Heaven, from where He will come again (John 5:39; 2 Cor. 5:21; 1 Cor. 15:4; Acts 1:9-11).
*We hold that we are saved by grace through faith, apart from works, that the sinner who repents and personally accepts the finished work of Christ on the cross becomes a child of God, is made a new creature, and is indwelt by the Holy Spirit (Eph. 2:8,9; John 1:12; 2 Cor. 5:17; John 14:17).
*We hold that Jesus Christ is coming again for His church, to judge the wicked and the lost, cast death and hell into the Lake of Fire, and dwell with the saints forever and ever. (John 14:3; Titus 1:3; 1 Thess. 4:16,17; Rev. 20:6,14,15; 22:1-5).
*We hold that through preaching, teaching, and ministering, The Dalles Freedom House must use all its resources and activities to bring women and their children under the life changing power of the Gospel, that they may have victory over sin, come into fellowship with God and live a Spirit filled, fruitful life in Christ. (Matt. 28:18-20; John 3:16; Acts 4:12; Acts 16:31; Rom. 5:1,2).
