Plattsmouth Bible Church started in 1996 through a prayer meeting of individuals interested in a Bible-preaching, relevant church in the Plattsmouth community. That group prayed each week for 2 years. In October of 1998, the first service was held – “church@three” in the Plattsmouth Community Center. Six months later, the new church family had purchased an abandoned church building and had restored the basement enough to begin meeting at 1602 First Avenue.
Over the following seven years, the rest of the church building was refurbished and restored with no debt and amazing provisions from God in many areas. All during that time, the church family continued to grow in size and depth. In 2007, Twin Rivers Fellowship – another church plant in Plattsmouth – had major changes from their planting organization and became part of Plattsmouth Bible Church. This addition of people and insight has strengthened the overall ministry of Plattsmouth Bible Church. For more on the history of PBC, see our most recent installment on the next phase of the #PBCGoGrow inititive here.
Plattsmouth Bible Church is part of the Berean Fellowship of Churches, a non-denominational group of interdependent churches with devotion to biblical truth and reaching the world. More information about the Berean Fellowship of Churches can be found at www.weareberean.org. Each Berean church is autonomous and loosely connected with the other churches in the Fellowship, holding the same devotion to God’s Word, God’s plans and God’s people.
Plattsmouth Bible Church’s mission is the same as every church – make disciples of Jesus Christ. Our focus and foundation is Jesus Christ and His glory and His Kingdom. Our church’s ministries and programs are designed to help nonbelievers come to know and follow Jesus and to help believers live for and follow Him. With Jesus Christ as our foundation, the frame of what God is building is the gospel (our message) and discipleship (our mission).
Plattsmouth Bible Church’s Sunday gatherings are “come as you are.” Our worship style is contemporary and relevant to life in the 21st Century. Music is accompanied by a band, words are shown on large screen TVs and the messages are typically verse by verse through God’s Word with major time spent on personal application. Gatherings generally last about 1 hour and 15 minutes – there is nursery for children infant through 2 years available during both Sunday gatherings, and during the 10:45 gathering, nursery for infants through 2 years for the entire time and children’s church for children 3 years through 6th grade – all during the message.
Youth group for junior and senior high is focused on assisting parents and helping youth deal with issues of faith on their own – helping them take faith in Jesus Christ as their own. Youth group happens on Sunday evenings from 4 to 6 PM for all 6th through 12th graders.
Coming soon - PBC will open a youth and outreach center at 325 Main Street. Weekly youth meetings will happen at 325 Backdoor (enter through the alley). Our monthly Community Food Pantry and biannual clothing giveaway will also be served from this location. Watch the website for more information.
Plattsmouth Bible Church emphasizes the importance of community groups in the growth of the individual believer. We have various community groups focused on different growth areas. There is a place for YOU with us at Plattsmouth Bible Church!
This video was originally created for the Sunday Gathering on October 28, 2018. It is 1 of 2 video's we used for our 20th Anniversary Celebration gatherings at PBC. It highlights the history of PBC, interviewing Mike Wolfe and how God started PBC and how God worked in some amazing ways to make His powerful presence known. It also includes interviews from Greg Zamora (PBC associate pastor of connection) and Diane Stewart, who were both part of the PBC Family at the beginning.
