WHO WE ARE


We love Iowa! It’s a flyover state for many, but it's our home. These are our people, and we’re committed to launching campuses across Iowa where you can look for God.

Our Mission      Our Core Values

OUR MISSION

We are a church for those who’ve given up on church. We believe God loves every one of us. That’s why we’re a No Matter church—no matter who you are, where you’ve been, what you’ve done or what’s been done to you, God loves you, and you can always look for God at Prairie Lakes Church. This is a journey you can take even if you don’t have everything figured out.

OUR CORE VALUES

Biblical

We believe the Bible is God’s Word, so we’re always going to stick with the Bible and keep it as our centerpiece. Whether you use an app on your phone or tablet, carry your Bible or use a Bible from our Worship Center, you’ll find our messages creatively and boldly reveal how the timeless stories of the Bible relate today in our home life, workplace and world.

Invitational

God invited us into His family, His Kingdom and to be on mission with Him. Being invitational and including others is the heart of God. Invitational is an attitude, heart and spirit that infects us. We’re always looking for ways to invite friends, families and co-workers into our circles.

Authentic

Prairie Lakes Church is a place where people come as they are. We place a premium on being authentic and allowing people to see who you really are because, honestly, it’s too hard to pretend to be something you’re not. We don’t play church. We’re a group of imperfect people who are simply loved by a gracious God-nothing more and nothing less.

Simple

In today’s busy world with noise, clutter and uncertainty, people want simplicity. We want to be clear, straightforward and uncomplicated in what we preach and remove barriers as people move forward on their faith journey. One of the things you’ll hear around here is, “What’s your simple next step?”
