This all started in the 1970s. The church was planted and began in a little antique building on Main Street in Payson. The point was, and still is, to preach the good news of the Gospel to the community and to create a fellowship of believers in southern Utah County. A few years after moving into the first building, the people at PBC built another building next to the old church.
In 2008, construction on the current building (pictured above) began. In March 2010, the people at Payson Bible Church moved in. God gets all of the glory. To read more about our current building, click here.
The big idea is for all people to glorify the living God, the God we read about in the Bible. Men exist for the purpose of glorifying God.
This big idea can be broken into parts. First, we must tell people of Jesus paying for our sins on the cross and invite them to believe in Him. Second, we must help those new believers to know God and live a life that honors Him. Third, we must serve people, inside and outside of the church. Out of these truths, we’ve created a clear mission: We exist to equip God’s people to serve in the church and in the community.
Our mission can be accomplished by God’s grace. Here are the five values at the core of our mission:
- We pray.
- We study the whole Bible.
- We are committed to love and fellowship.
- We serve God in the home and in the church.
- We reconcile people to God through proclamation of the Gospel.
