We are a part of a worldwide organization with congregations in the United States, Canada, and on all major continents.

We have two congregations in the Portland area: one in Vancouver Washington and the other congregation in nearby Hood River Oregon.

Our mission is to preach the Gospel of the Kingdom of God and to prepare a people for that kingdom. Our home office is in Cincinnati, Ohio.

Mini Study

iconSeparation of Church and State?

The first U.S. Congress adopted the first 10 amendments, known as the Bill of Rights, in 1791. The First Amendment went through extensive discussions and nearly a dozen drafts. They show the clear intent of the founding fathers-that they didn't want one Christian denomination running the nation. They did, however, firmly believe Christianity and biblical principles should be a part of American life.

Welcome to the Portland/Hood River Oregon Web Site

We would like to welcome you to the Portland/Hood River congregations of the United Church of God!

Jesus Christ taught us "You shall know the truth and the truth shall set you free (John 8:32)." Finding Real truth in today's confusion of religious teachings brings real freedom, but it can be a challenge. Our goal is to teach and live the whole truth of the Bible and prepare for the coming Kingdom of God. We are following the steps of the Apostle Paul, as in his words we, "...declare to you the whole counsel of God. (Acts 20:27)"

We assemble on each weekly Sabbath Day as Jesus and the Apostles did. We keep the annual Holy Days that Jesus, the Apostles and the early New Testament Church kept, and we teach the same doctrines they taught the early New Testament converts.

Our doors are always open. If you seek to better understand the awesome plan of God, come and learn more.

This Week's Beyond Today Program

iconSometimes saint is used to denote anyone who has died and gone to heaven. Other times it may refer to an especially holy person who is still alive. Most of the time, it is used to refer to a person who has died--and meets very special qualifications in order to be recognized as a saint. The recognized saint then performs intercession between human beings and God. Is the idea of the veneration of saints, practiced by some of the largest Christian denominations, a teaching you can find in the Bible?
