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.

Mini Study

iconWhy America Should Be Thankful

Nearly four centuries have elapsed since Pilgrims and Puritans first called their "New England" the Promised Land. On a continent of limitless space and abundant potential they planted, built, and worshipped. Why has history shined so much more bountifully on America than on any other single nation in history? Americans traditionally credit God for those blessings. They give Him thanks and sing of His goodness and grace. Even their presidents pray and proclaim: "May God bless America." And indeed, America has been blessed!

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

iconIt is a story of intrigue, sex, and murder. This is not about the latest steamy novel or blockbuster movie. This story is in the Bible and it involves one of the most famous kings of ancient Israel. A king whom God said was a man after His own heart (Acts 13:22). He is Israel's King David who wrote much of the book of Psalms. How can we reconcile David's horrible sins with him being honored throughout the Bible as a man of God?
