I was in the same situation when I first moved to Oregon. There are extremely few IFB churches in Oregon and there were none in the Eugene/Springfield area. I was forced to attend a Southern Baptist Church in Eugene that was definitely a "Laodocian" church and very lukewarm. There were 3 other families though that attended that were of like mind and faith and seeking an IFB church. We started meeting at each others houses every Saturday for bible study. We also took up an offering each week to put towards the possibility of becoming a church some day. After about a year we had grown to 30 people and had raised $20,000 and we then made it known to other IFB churches that we were officially seeking a Pastor to take our group and make a church. Thus was born, Mt. Pisgah Baptist Church in Springfield, OR. under Pastor Nick Gillaspie.
