About Our Pastor

Pastor Chris Davies ministry began in 1972 when he was saved and filled with the Holy Spirit while serving in the USAF during the Vietnam War. After being honorably discharged from the USAF, he completed pastoral training at the institute of New Life and was sent by the Foursquare Church as Foursquare Missionary to England where he pioneered 3 churches. During his 17 years of ministry in England, he became the National Leader of his organization and helped initiate the first European Conference located in the Netherlands. Pastor Chris preached all over Europe and in many parts of Africa and Australia. He moved to Australia in 1990, traveling from there worldwide to some 40-50 nations to preach the Gospel.

Pastor Chris moved to Hong Kong in 1995, where he pioneered a church located in the Central Financial District on Hong Kong Island. He earned the respect of some of the top leaders of the 3 Self Church and of the Underground Churches in China. As a result of the Lord's intervention with words of prophetic wisdom and knowledge and prophetic visions, countless people came to the Lord impacting large areas of China.


Pastor Chris Davies

After spending time in 2002 in the Philippines, Pastor Chris and his family returned to the USA where he continued to travel extensively worldwide as a prophetic healing evangelist, bringing revival and encouragement to many.

Pastor Chris has been ministering in the Albany area and the Willamette Valley since October 2008. His passion is for people and to see those who have been scattered and who are lost brought back into the Kingdom of God and established in the faith. He sees Times of Refreshing Ministries as an end time ministry and part of that ministry is to prepare the people for the imminent return of the Lord Jesus. Pastor Chris continues to inspire, mentor and guide a new generation of leaders and to build the Kingdom of God as he helps God's people chart a course for their lives and their destinies.

What to Expect

Times of Refreshing Ministries is a Pentecostal ministry which means we embrace the spiritual outpouring and empowerment known as the baptism with the Holy Spirit. Because this outpouring is so similar to the experience of the early Christians on the day of Pentecost, it is called a Pentecostal experience, an enrichment of the Christian life through the power of the Holy Spirit that empowers believers to be effective witnesses of Christ and to walk in victory over sin. We believe that the Lord is still able and willing to heal both our spirit and our body. You will find many personal testimonies of His healing power bearing witness to this reality in our fellowship.

We believe true, heartfelt worship brings us into the very presence of the Living God and that it is a sweet fragrance to Him. For this reason, we:

What We Believe


We believe in the verbal inspiration of the Bible.


We believe in one God eternally existing in three persons; namely, the Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.


We believe that Jesus Christ is the only begotten Son of the Father, conceived of the Holy Ghost, and born of the Virgin Mary. That Jesus was crucified, buried, and raised from the dead. That He ascended to heaven and is today at the right hand of the Father as the Intercessor.

Salvation By Grace Through Faith

We believe that all have sinned and come short of the glory of God and that repentance is commanded of God for all and necessary for forgiveness of sins. That justification, regeneration, and the new birth are wrought by faith in the blood of Jesus Christ.


We believe in sanctification subsequent to the new birth, through faith in the blood of Christ; through the Word, and by the Holy Ghost.


We believe holiness to be God's standard of living for His people.

Baptism with the Holy Spirit

We believe in the baptism with the Holy Ghost subsequent to a clean heart. In speaking with other tongues as the Spirit gives utterance and that it is the initial evidence of the baptism with the Holy Ghost.

Water Baptism 

We believe in water baptism by immersion, and all who repent should be baptized in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost.

Divine Healing

We believe divine healing is provided for all in the atonement.

Lord's Supper & Foot Washing

We believe in the Lords Supper and washing of the saints' feet.

Premillennial Second Coming

We believe in the premillennial second coming of Jesus. First, to resurrect the righteous dead and to catch away the living saints to Him in the air. Second, to reign on the earth a thousand years.

Resurrection, Eternal Life & Eternal Judgment

We believe in the bodily resurrection; eternal life for the righteous, and eternal punishment for the wicked.

Practical Commitments

Spiritual Example

We will demonstrate our commitment to Christ through our loyalty to God, our commitment to His people and to the work of Christ as good stewards.

Moral Purity

We will engage in those activities which glorify God in our body and which avoid the fulfillment of the lust of the flesh. We will read, watch and listen to those things which are of positive benefit to our spiritual well-being.

Personal Integrity

We will live in a manner that inspires trust and confidence, bearing the fruit of the Spirit and seeking to manifest the character of Christ in all our behavior.

Family Responsibility

We will give priority to fulfilling family responsibilities, to preserving the sanctity of marriage and to maintaining divine order in the home.

Behavioral Temperance

We will practice temperance in behavior and will abstain from activities and attitudes which are offensive to our fellowman or which lead to addiction or enslavement.

Modest Appearance

We will demonstrate the scriptural principle of modesty by appearing and dressing in a manner that will not cause a fellow brother or sister to fall into sin through lust.

Social Obligation

We will strive to fulfill our obligations to society by being good citizens, by correcting social injustices, and by protecting the sanctity of life.
