Preaching the Gospel, Preparing a People

What are Mini Studies?

The Portland congregations would like to share the knowledge of the Word of God with you. We are able to do this with our Mini-Study series. These are small, easy to read, topics that expound the principals found in the pages of your Bible, add scope to the understanding of world events, provide hope in your journey through life, and provide dimension to the understanding of who God is and what His purpose and plan is for humanity. Each study is a short discussion of a topic and is presented in a new browser window that makes the topic easy to read. You may use your browser print function or our handy print button to obtain a hard copy of the study. You may file these in a notebook for future reference. Come back to our Web site every week to read the latest study.
