About Coastline Fellowship

About Coastline

Coastline Christian Fellowship is a non-denominational church affiliated with Calvary Chapel.

The Pastor:
Jason Biel was saved at a young age and grew up in Southern California. During the high school years, Jason felt that the Lord was placing a "call on his life for ministry". After High School, he moved to Southern Oregon with his mother and father. Soon after moving to Oregon, he met and married Regina Biel. They were blessed with three children (Joshua, Caleb, and Elizabeth). Jason and his family moved back to California for a while where Jason served as a worship leader in a local Calvary Chapel. Eventually, he and his family came back to S. Oregon where they were very involved at Applegate Christian Fellowship. Jason served as an elder, college pastor, and occasional worship leader.

In 1999, Jason was "sent out" by Applegate Christian Fellowship in a venture of faith to plant a church on the North Coast of Oregon. He and his family arrived in the winter of 1999 away from friends and family to pioneer a work. Eventually, Jason met a family who invited him to their home to start a Bible study in their living room on Thursday nights. What began as a small, 6-8 person Bible study began to blossom and grow. Soon, an opportunity came to meet on Sundays in a borrowed office space. That was quickly out-grown and in October of 1999, Coastline Christian Fellowship, moved to a small warehouse in downtown Warrenton. Eventually, the warehouse was out grown, and the church was in in need of a new facility. In 2006, the Lord blessed CCF with the purchase of the old Olney Elementary School in Olney (just outside Astoria). This is where the church continues to meet. Coastline has two Sunday morning services, with a Thursday night 'mid-week' bible study as well.

Philosophy & Flavor:
We believe that early on in the life of the church, the Lord called us to "keep it simple". Our heart is to emulate Acts 2:42. In that passage, we see the church committed to four things: Teaching of God's Word, fellowship, prayer, and communion. Thus, we place a high emphasis on a systematic teaching of God's Word. We encourage the church to be involved in the community of believers intimately. We seek to pray together often and take communion regularly. We also seek to worship Him "in Spirit and in truth", therefore we dedicate much time to corporate worship.
