KNOW... God

The mission and purpose of our church is found in the need of every human to connect with our gracious God in relationship through Jesus Christ. Our hope and prayer is that you and your family find the fulfillment that can only be found in Him.

     Allow me to introduce myself, and in so doing, introduce you to the ministry of Pleasant Grove Baptist Church. Our purpose for existing is three-fold, and all related to fulfilling God's plan for us as individuals and as a local church. 


We serve a God who is the Creator of all the universe, mighty and majestic in power, gracious and loving in character, and sovereign in all the affairs of life. He is worthy of our worship and praise, and we meet together as His children to offer up that worship. We do this through our singing and music, through our testimonies to His greatness and faithfulness, through our personal communion with Him in prayer, and through our response in submission and obedience to His Word. 

We have the most exciting, most electrifying news that the world has ever known - that Jesus Christ, the Son of the living God, has come to earth to redeem the human race! It is called the gospel - the good news of God's offer of love and forgiveness. We have been commissioned as His followers to share this news with everyone - with our neighbor who lives across the street, and with the person who lives in the farthest regions of the globe. We seek to do this through the preaching and teaching of the gospel message, through living our lives in such a way as to illustrate the saving, sanctifying and satisfying impact of the gospel, and through missionary support and participation that seeks to make His name known throughout the world. 

As we follow the example of Christ, we recognize that His call is a call into service of others. He said of Himself that He did not come to be served, but to serve (Matthew 20:28). A great part of our growth in Christ is identifying our role, our place of service within His kingdom. Our goal is to demonstrate God's love in our care and love for others. We certainly want to serve one another within the church, encouraging and helping each other in any way we can. But we also want to serve our community, our neighbors, and anyone anywhere who is in need. 

     We at Pleasant Grove wish to extend this offer to you - to serve you and minister to you in any way that we can. We hope that you will feel comfortable in calling on us whenever you think we can be of service.
