When you attend a small group at PCC you can expect to be accepted just as you are. Whether you like to add to the conversation or just sit back and take it all in, you are welcome. Our discussions are sometimes light, but also go deep into a subject that someone may be struggling with. We have several reasons for having small groups. To come together as Christians to love, strengthen, and care for one another. If one person is hurting we all are hurting, but in return we rejoice with one another in healing. We believe that God is the only source in which we receive our blessings. Come join us to see how much we love and care for you.


JAM is the name for our group of teens at Portsmouth Christian Church. It stands for Jesus and me. At PCC we want our teens to know that Jesus is with them not only in the good times, but also in the rough times. JAM offers learning sessions on Sunday mornings at 11:00a.m., discussion sessions on Sunday evenings at 6:00p.m., and fun activities throughout the month. They are encouraged to perform service projects on a quarterly basis as to understand why we exist for Jesus. Portsmouth Christian Church promises your teen will be better equipped to serve the Lord and people through learning and hands on projects as we grow together as a church.


City Light Kids at PCC is the children's programming at Portsmouth Christian Church. Designed for your children from birth through completion of 5th grade, we strive to meet the needs of each family that comes through our doors. City Light Kids vision is threefold: to GLOW, GROW, and GO! GLOW focuses on fellowship and encouragement to rekindle our light and flame for Jesus! We achieve this through various events and opportunities that provide for both fun and Christian fellowship. GROW is the "digging deep" piece of the ministry, focusing on spiritual development and nourishment. This takes place through Sunday morning lessons, small group devotions, summer camps, and a yearly preteen convention. GO is the ultimate vision of Jesus and our ministry, spreading the Good News of Jesus to be a LIGHT in our city and our world! We work to accomplish this goal through community service projects, outreach events, and by partnering within our neighborhood to meet physical and spiritual needs as they arise.

The Scripture Inspired

The Bible is the inspired Word of God. (2 Timothy 3:15-17; 1 Peter 1:23-25; Hebrews 4:12)


There is One God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit (1 John 5:7; Genesis 1:26; Matthew 3:16-17, 28:19; Luke 1:35; Isaiah 9:6; Hebrews 3:7-11)

The One True God

The One True God has revealed Himself as the eternally self-existent, self- revealed “I AM” (Deut.6:4; Mark 12:29; Isaiah 43:10-11; Matthew 28:19)

Jesus Christ

Jesus Christ is God the Son, the second person of the Trinity (John 1:1,14;20:28 1 Timothy 3:16; Isaiah 9:6; Philippians 2:5-6; 1 Timothy 2:5)

Virgin Birth

Jesus Christ was conceived by God the Father, through the Holy Spirit in the virgin Mary’s womb Matthew 1:18,25; Luke 1:35 Isaiah 7:14 Matthew 1:18, 23-25)

The Fall of Man

Man was originally created good and upright by God. However, man by voluntary transgression fell and thereby incurred not only physical death but also spiritual death, which is separation from God (Genesis 1:26-27; Genesis 2:17; Romans 5:12-19)

The Salvation of Man

Man’s only hope of redemption is through the shed blood of Jesus Christ the Son of God (Luke 24:47; John 3:3; Romans 10:13-15; Ephesians 2:8; Titus 2:11)

Water Baptism

Following faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, the new convert is commanded by the Word of God to be Baptized in water in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit (Matthew 28:19; Acts 2:38)

Listen to PCC Sermons Online

Our Sunday Sermons are to empower each of our believers with the word of God. At Portsmouth Christian Church we will never waver from the truth found in the Bible. From Genesis to Revelation, we will not add to it, or take away from it. The Bible is the God breathed word of truth spoken through each writer. I hope while listening to a sermon you will not only be inspired, but find a new or deeper relationship with Christ. God Bless You and enjoy.

And he sat down opposite the treasury and watched the people putting money into the offering box. Many rich people put in large sums. And a poor widow came and put in two small copper coins, which make a penny. And he called his disciples to him and said to them, “Truly, I say to you, this poor widow has put in more than all those who are contributing to the offering box. For they all contributed out of their abundance, but she out of her poverty has put in everything she had, all she had to live on. (MARK 12:41–44)

At Portsmouth Christian Church we aim to honor God in all we do. Our leadership is dedicated to following God in all we do and guiding God's church to love Him and others. Our leaders are held to the standards that God has set forth through the Bible.
