About Us

"Upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it." - Matthew 16:18

The congregation of Pleasant Green Baptist Church is a loving and caring body of believers who seek to make Christ known both locally and globally in three ways. Through our words, first, we preach and teach Christ. Next, we live, give, and behave as witnesses of Christ. Thirdly, we express the love of Christ to meet the spiritual and felt needs of others.

Pleasant Green Baptist Church (PGBC), located in Portsmouth, Oh, situated on the banks of the Ohio River, has had a rich history and grace-filled heritage since being established in 1864. We are a Bible-based and God-fearing congregation. Our style of worship blends traditional and contemporary music. We consider ourselves family. Through our service and fellowship, we consider ourselves family. We genuinely love and care for one another.  Reaching beyond the four walls, Pleasant Green has committed herself to missions and outreach. Christ's commission to the Church remains unchanged.

It would be a special honor and privilege to have you as a part of our weekly services. Come and join the wonderful congregation as Pleasant Green remains focused on the ministry of Jesus Christ.
