First Baptist Church in Downtown Portland is an American Baptist congregation serving as "Ambassadors for Christ to the Heart of the City". Our historic 1894 building is home not only to a vibrant congregation of three language departments (worshipping in English, Spanish, and Cambodian) but also weddings, services for homeless and the elderly, cultural events, lectures, and more.
First Baptist Church rejoices with the couples and families who unite their lives in our sanctuary. We look upon the marriage ceremony as a testament to the love and loyalty of human relationships given to us by our Heavenly Father. Within the framework of a Christian ceremony, we also welcome and encourage your individuality and personality to come through during this holy event.
We enthusiastically invite you to meet our pastors and have one of them perform your wedding ceremony. We also strongly believe in the sanctity and dignity of all Christian denominations, and if you have a relationship with a pastor, you are welcome to have that person officiate your wedding ceremony in our church building.
FBC also offers a community center downtown that accommodates small services or wedding receptions. This space is managed (for weddings) in conjuction with Ben Powers Company.

Chris the wedding coodinator was amazing! She is so well organized and does everything with a smile. The grounds were gorgeous! The day was everything we dreamed of!
The church was gorgeous, and they even allowed my dog to be ring bearer. The staff was really friendly and accommodating. It was a little pricy, but wasn't more that some other downtown churches
