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 Portland Oregon 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.
Words of Encouragement
When a family member or friend dies, there is no denying the sense of loneliness and emptiness and the feeling of unfinished business that we should have said or done more. Gaining a more-complete understanding of death and life can help us face our own mortality. We find courage, comfort and hope by viewing life in a larger context.

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
As a Christian, what does Passover mean to you?
Maybe you think of a Jewish ceremonial meal or the remarkable events of the first Passover recorded in the biblical book of Exodus. The story of millions of people painting blood on their doorposts to escape death and afterwards gathering their belongings and leaving Egypt–for the first time in their lives free from oppressive slavery.
But what meaning does the Passover have for a Christian?
