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.
The Day of Atonement
Following the Feast of Trumpets of God's appointed times is a solemn day of drawing near to Him through fasting (Leviticus 23:26-32). On this day, the Israelites were to sacrifice a goat to represent the Lord. The high priest was take its blood into the Most Holy Place of the Tabernacle (the only time he went in during the year). He also was to confess the people's sins over a live goat, which was then driven off into the wilderness (Leviticus 16).

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
Did you know that the Bible says there is no hell? Here's what is meant: The kind of hell most people believe in is not real. Now don't misunderstand: the Bible does teach there will be judgment for every single human being. God's Word is clear: "For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, that each one may receive the things done in the body, according to what he has done, whether good or bad". But the question is: What is that ultimate punishment for unrepentant sinners? There are many incorrect ideas out there that are taught by Christian churches.
