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.
Blood Clotting: A Biological Miracle
One relatively simple process necessary for animal life is the ability for blood to clot to seal a wound and prevent an injured animal (or person) from bleeding to death. Yet the only way this intricate system works is when many complicated chemical substances interact. If only one ingredient is missing or doesn't function in the right way, as in the genetic blood disorder hemophilia, the process fails, and the victim bleeds to death.

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
Today's world is going through many changes. For some of us, it is an unsettling and confusing time, and it's difficult to explain exactly what's happening. America is being pushed back in its historic role as a global power and influence–while within American culture we see the traditional roles and rules of marriage, family and sexual identity going through radical redefinition. In the midst of this we might ask, "Where is God and what is He doing in today's world?"
