About Us

We are a local, elder-led, independent, autonomous congregation.  This means that although PGCC cooperates with other churches, it is not part of any denomination or council.  PGCC strives to follow the Biblical principles as laid out in the New Testament since the Bible alone is the authoritative Word of God.  PGCC participates in the universal church’s task of making Spirit-led disciples of Jesus Christ. We have our roots historically in what has been labeled the American Restoration Movement (1790).  

 

We trace our local humble beginnings to a small group of faithful believers meeting in downtown Prairie Grove, AR in 1885.  PGCC has a long history of devotion to God, with an emphasis on Biblical teaching for all ages.  The church has been active in serving the communities of Western Washington County and is committed to a strong domestic & global outreach as well.  We have grown from that small group to be a vibrant family of believers located in a growing area of our county.  

 

We have a simple Biblical motto that we strive to live by:   Love God. Love Others.  Serve Others.
Biblically we find that Jesus said the greatest commandment is to “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.”  And the second is like it:  “Love your neighbor as yourself.”  (Matthew 22:37-40).

 

The Apostle Paul tells us that once we are save by the grace of God we are “God’s workmanship created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which He prepared in advance for us to do.”  (Eph. 2:10)

 

So, we are letting God take broken people who are far from Him and redeem them to grow fully devoted followers of Jesus who love God passionately, are learning to love others unselfishly and discovering their place of service and purpose in the Kingdom of God.
