About Prairie

Prairie Adventist Community Church is a community of faith that loves God, cares for each other, and brings light to the world. 

We are a group of disciples of Jesus seeking to live out His Great Commandment and Great Commission:

  • Worship: We strive to love God with all our heart, mind, and soul
  • Service: We aim to love our neighbors as ourselves
  • Evangelism: We go into all the world to share the Good News
  • Fellowship: We invite people to join God's church through baptism
  • Discipleship: We encourage each other to follow Jesus more deeply every day

Prairie Adventist Community Church was planted in 1992 to reach the people of Brush Prairie with the Everlasting Gospel. We love food! Our holiday feasts are legendary, and you’ll find a group sharing lunch in the fellowship hall after the worship service almost every week.

Our annual Concert in the Park brings area Christian musicians together every summer, and our Journey to Bethlehem live nativity program is a must-see event for many in the community every December.

Prairie is part of the Seventh-day Adventist Church, a mainstream Protestant church with approximately 22 million members worldwide, including more than one million members in North America. The Seventh-day Adventist Church seeks to enhance quality of life for people everywhere and to let people know that Jesus is coming again soon.

 

Our Beliefs

 

We believe that God loves you, and that we are stronger when we work together!

Prairie is part of the sisterhood of churches in the worldwide Seventh-day Adventist Church, a mainstream Protestant church with approximately 22 million members worldwide, including more than one million members in North America. The Seventh-day Adventist Church seeks to enhance quality of life for people everywhere and to let people know that Jesus is coming again soon.

Adventists believe a Trinity of three persons—the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit—make up one God. They made salvation possible when Jesus, the Son, came to earth as a baby in Bethlehem and lived a sinless life in accordance with the Father's will. When Jesus was crucified for the sins of the people of the world and arose from the dead on the third day, victory was won for everyone.

When He returned to heaven following the resurrection, Jesus left the Holy Spirit to serve as our Comforter and Counselor. He promised to return to earth a second time to complete His plan of salvation and take His people to heaven. Adventists are among the believers who look forward to that day.

Adventists believe that God is concerned with the quality of human life, and that everything—the way we live, eat, speak, think, treat each other, and care for the world around us—is part of His plan. Our families, our children, our jobs, our talents, our money, and our time are all important to Him.

 

28 Fundamental Beliefs

Seventh-day Adventists accept the Bible as the only source of our beliefs. We consider our movement to be the result of the protestant conviction Sola Scriptura—the Bible as the only standard of faith and practice for Christians.

Currently, Adventists hold 28 fundamental beliefs that can be organized into six categories—the doctrines of God, man, salvation, the church, the Christian life and last day events. In each teaching, God is the architect, who in wisdom, grace and infinite love, is restoring a relationship with humanity that will last for eternity.
