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.
Is the Kingdom Here Now?
Shortly before His arrest, trial and crucifixion, Jesus Christ prophesied of a worldwide period of upheaval and unrest unparalleled in human history. This time would be characterized by religious deception, warfare, earthquakes, famines and disease epidemics, along with other great catastrophic events (Luke 21:7-28). In this discourse, Christ made it plain that the Kingdom of God was not here yet.

Feed the hungry, and help those in trouble. Then your light will shine out from the darkness, and the darkness around you will be as bright as noon. -NLT

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
Martin Luther and other Protestants—reformers who protested the Catholic Church—had enormous influence on the development of the western world. One of Luther's primary goals was for the church to return to the Bible as the source of Christian teachings. He felt that the church had become mired in human traditions and non-biblical doctrines. Did his religious revolution totally restore the Bible as the source of truth in Christianity? Or, are there aspects of biblical truth that many Christians are still missing?
