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.
Biblical Festivals in the New Testament
The Holy Days of God are described in the Old Testament. But they were not to be abandoned by New Testament Christians. The chart below outlines the locations in the New Testament where the Holy Days were still being observed by the New Testament Church. Jesus did not give any indication that His followers were not to observe these days.

How to separate truth from counterfeits
And so, dear brothers and sisters, I plead with you to give your bodies to God because of all he has done for you. Let them be a living and holy sacrifice-the kind he will find acceptable. This is truly the way to worship him. -NLT
- Romans 12:1
Don't copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God's will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect. -NLT
- Romans 12:2
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
If God is all powerful, and loving, why does He allow evil? Why doesn't He stop bad things from happening?
You know, this question requires a little more than a few platitudes about how God is God and can do whatever He wants to do. Especially if you're the one who's brutally abused or you're struggling with why did God allow a friend to commit suicide?
