You are invited to come and join us for a Sunday service to experience God’s powerful presence and become inspired to pursue your destiny. Meet friendly people who are encountering Jesus Christ, and are experiencing spiritual transformation, physical healings, restoration of family relationships, and people who are growing in friendship with God.

Church should be a fun, inspirational experience where you can connect with God and with others who are passionate about Him. At The Abiding Place  you’ll experience friendly people, great music, encouraging messages and a positive, faith building atmosphere where life happens.

Join us Sunday mornings at 10:00 a.m.  We’re located in the Harney County Community Center at 484 N Broadway in Burns, Oregon.

What We Believe

We believe that God is good and He’s in a good mood!

We believe in one eternal God who is the Creator of all things. He exists in three Persons: God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit.

We believe that the Bible is God’s Word.  It is accurate, authoritative and applicable to our everyday lives.

We believe God is loving and completely holy having given His son, Jesus, as the means of establishing relationship with Him and attaining eternal life.

We believe that God has individually equipped us so that we can successfully achieve His purpose for our lives which is to worship God, fulfill our role in the Church and serve the community in which we live.

We believe that God wants to heal  us physically, emotionally and spiritually and to transform us so that we can live in peace, health, blessing thereby more effectively help others.

We believe that we are to be people who partner with God in awakening our community by creating an atmosphere and  culture that accurately reveals Him to others.

Above all, we believe God loves His kids and He wants the best for them!


The Abiding Place Ministries is a non-denominational group of believers in Harney County, Oregon. The Abiding Place began in January of 2001 as West Bank Christian Fellowship. Originally pastored by Tim Titus who was “called out of the pews” to lead the church, Lori Titus was recognized and ordained in 2011 as a pastor and partner in ministry. Lori’s strong prophetic, teaching and administrative giftings as well as her inner healing training are invaluable to the Body of Christ in The Abiding Place.

 As a Presence-driven church, The Abiding Place has a strong emphasis on worship. Connecting people with God through worship and ushering the Holy Spirit into our midst allows the gifts to flow and provides an opportunity to encounter God in real, life-changing ways. Real encounters with The Living God facilitate faith and transformation as we are each changed from glory to glory into His image. (2 COR 3:18) The Abiding Place offers a safe environment in which to confront and be healed of the wounds and pain in our lives and to live now in the end-state of our walk with the Lord–peace!

 The Abiding Place Ministries is a charismatic fellowship which thrives on the gifts of the Spirit. Our belief in The Word led us to adopt a five-fold ministry approach (EPH 4:11) and, as such, submit ourselves to Gary McCreith of Eagle’s Rest Ministries based in Lakeview, Oregon. Gary’s apostolic calling to father churches and leaders provides covering and accountability for The Abiding Place.

Our desire is to see our county changed by the spirit of God that flows over the threshold and into our streets as we worship and intercede for our community and our country. Lives changed and people empowered to walk in all God has for them is what The Abiding Place is about. We invite you to be a part of what God is doing in our midst!
