First Presbyterian Church     Mountain Home, Arkansas   
We are a “welcoming” church community. We are part of the Presbyterian Church U.S.A. and the Arkansas Presbytery. We worship every Sunday at 10 am. 
We offer Holy Communion the first Sunday of every month.  All are welcome to the Lord’s Table. 

Our worship is what for many would be considered a traditional worship style. There are members, laity, who assist in worship from reading scripture to offering prayers.  The pastor’s sermon messages are based primarily on readings from the four gospels. We believe the Holy Bible is the inspired word of God as a means of Grace to help us in our faith journey.  We believe that Jesus Christ is the head of the Church.

We have statements of faith (Creeds) that we call “Confessions” that we confess each week as a part of our worship experience.  We believe that we, in and of ourselves, cannot save ourselves from eternal damnation. We believe that in and through the Grace of God in the death and resurrection of God’s Son, for all who believe, our sins are forgiven.

We enjoy our fellowship time, following worship, where we share a cup of coffee, a glass of juice and a snack of various sorts. It is also a time when we can more informally welcome our guests and visitors and get caught up on life with our sisters and brothers in the faith.

We are informal in our dress and style. We invite you to join us anytime. If you are looking for a church home feel free to call the church office and the pastor will get back with you as soon as possible. The church office number is 870-425-3799.

Thank you for visiting our website. Please check the other options on our website to give you a better understanding of who we are as a body of Christ serving the Lord Jesus Christ with our God-given gifts. May God’s peace be with you. 
In 1946, 16 dedicated Christians felt a need for a Presbyterian Church in Mountain Home. By 1947, there were 44 members who had united and a church was built on land donated by Enness Shiras, one of the founders of the Baxter Bulletin. First meetings were held in the American Legion building until the church building on Presbyterian Drive was completed. Early services were conducted by Dr. John Spragins and college students from Arkansas College (now Lyon College).
Between 1947 and 1954, the church was partially supported by the East Arkansas Presbytery (now Presbytery of Arkansas). We became a self-supporting church in 1954. Other pastors were: Dr. George McKee, who served from 1950 to 1955. He and his wife were the first to live in the new manse completed in 1949. The Rev. J.D. Zelluff served from 1955 to 1962. Church membership had grown to 180 and the building on Presbyterian Drive now included an educational wing and an enlarged and remodeled sanctuary. The Rev. Harold Willard served the church from 1962 to 1966 and the Rev. Herman Schuessler from 1966 to 1983. The Rev. Stephan Fazekas was an interim pastor from 1983 to 1984. The Rev. William McConnelee served from 1984 to 1990. Interim pastors from 1990 to 1991 were Dr. William Kettlitz and Dr. Basil Hicks. 
Land for a new church was purchased in 1972. The new church on 1106 Spring Street was dedicated in 1990.
