The Day of Atonement
Following the Feast of Trumpets of God's appointed times is a solemn day of drawing near to Him through fasting (Leviticus 23:26-32). On this day, the Israelites were to sacrifice a goat to represent the Lord. The high priest was take its blood into the Most Holy Place of the Tabernacle (the only time he went in during the year). He also was to confess the people's sins over a live goat, which was then driven off into the wilderness (Leviticus 16).

Be careful to celebrate the Day of Atonement on the tenth day of that same month - nine days after the Festival of Trumpets. You must observe it as an official day for holy assembly, a day to deny yourselves and present special gifts to the Lord. -NLT
- Leviticus 23:27
Do no work during that entire day because it is the Day of Atonement, when offerings of purification are made for you, making you right with the Lord your God. -NLT
- Leviticus 23:28
Welcome to the Portland Oregon UCG Web Site
We would like to welcome you to the Portland Metro congregation 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
The Day of Atonement, in the Jewish community, is known as Yom Kippur. Among all of the fantastical rituals of this day there is one that may seem most bizarre. Two goats would be presented to the high priest. One would be sacrificed. The other led into the wilderness to be released. Do the ceremonies of the Day of Atonement have any relevance to Christians?
