Who Are We

THE PRINCE OF PEACE MISSIONARY BAPTIST CHURCH (POPMBC) is located at 715 Evergreen Street SE in Grand Rapids, Michigan 49507.

The Prince of Peace was organized on July 01, 1979 by the late Rev. Dr. Moses Garmon. The Prince of Peace MBC has had three pastors in her history; Dr. Moses Garmon, Bruce E. Garmon, Sr., and the current pastor, Eula C. Gaddis, Jr., DMIN.

The Prince of Peace desires to reach people that do not have a place of regular worship. We believe that God organized the Prince of Peace for this “Purpose.” Our purpose is further defined by what we call "The Key to the Church."  


Come and experience contemporary worship, friendly fellowship, and practical preaching.

Our Vision & Mission

Proverbs 29:18 says, “Where there is no vision, the people perish.” The purpose of our expansion project is to implement this Vision and Mission.  The Prince of Peace has always been a teaching church.   We are in need of adequate space to begin to bring this Vision to pass.   

The Lord has given the Pastor Three Missionary Journey’s for the church to undertake.  This expansion project is expected to be the First of Three Missionary Journey’s that God has positioned and purposed for this church. Read the Vision and ask yourself what I can do to assist in this Vision and Mission. 

Our Purposes

Is to honor our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ by carrying His command to make disciples of all nations (Matthew 28:19, 20), including our local community of Grand Rapids, Michigan. We target those who are not in active fellowship with the Lord, exposing them to the Truth that leads to eternal life. This is accomplished through evangelism, outreach ministries, and sound teaching. We offer an environment to help members of POPMBC continue in their growth and commitment to Christ. 

Our Values

Teaching Biblical values through meaningful activities, life-changing and uplifting worship services, and spiritual activities.
