Do not fall into the trap of following their customs and worshiping their gods. Do not inquire about their gods, saying, How do these nations worship their gods I want to follow their example. -NLT

- Deuteronomy 12:30

You must not worship the Lord your God the way the other nations worship their gods, for they perform for their gods every detestable act that the Lord hates. They even burn their sons and daughters as sacrifices to their gods. -NLT

- Deuteronomy 12:31

We would like to welcome you to the United Church of God, Portland. If you found us surfing the internet you may wonder who we are and what we believe? Remember the 1990s and the abbreviation WWJD—“What Would Jesus Do”. Change those initials ever so slightly to WDJD—“What Did Jesus Do” and it describes the focus and passion of our ministry.

We assemble weekly on the day Jesus and the Apostles met, we keep the annual celebrations Jesus, the Apostles and the early New Testament Church kept and we seek to respect the same doctrines they taught the early New Testament converts.

Our doors are always open as you seek to better understand the awesome plan of God. Join us for worship, learning, songs and fellowship.

- Robert and Dyanne Dick

Weekly Mini Study

After Jesus returns, the world will see a 1,000-year period of peace and prosperity (Revelation 20:1-6). The earth will be changed, not through the achievement of mankind, but through the power of God. The biblical festival called the Feast of Tabernacles pictures this time–which theologians often refer to as the Millennium (meaning simply 1,000 years).

Beyond Today TV Presentation

Video games have them. TV and movies have them. Even holidays have them. What are they? Demons! Are demons real? Did ancient peoples dream them up? Are they genuine or just imaginary? Much of the world today has a celebration that seems to be dedicated to the demonic world. Its Halloween. Is that a problem for Christians? What could be wrong with Halloween?
