HISTORY: Principe de Paz (Sp. Prince of Peace) Presbyterian Church was organized November 3, 1912 under the name Iglesia Presbyteriana Mexicana. The Presbytery of Tamaulipas appointed an organizing commission composed of Rev. W.A.Ross and G. Andres F. Cisneros of San Benito. There were eleven charter members.

In the early 1950s, the church began missions in La Feria, McAllen and Weslaco, and helped organize Bethany Presbyterian Church in Mc Allen, and San Pablo Presbyterian Church in Weslaco. At this time, the name of the Mercedes church was changed to El Principe de Paz. A four-room annex was constructed, and the sanctuary and pastoral residence were sold. In 1971, a new sanctuary was built.

The church building is at 1340 S. Georgia Street in Mercedes, and the present minister is Rev. Hector V. Reynoso. There is an active Sunday School, youth choir, and menís and womenís groups. All services are in both Spanish and English.

In 1913, the American Rio Grande Land & Irrigation Company, developers of Mercedes, donated land too high for agricultural use to churches for cemeteries. The 1.5 acre Presbyterian "cemetery corner" is adjacent to the Catholic, Baptist and Lutheran cemeteries. The Presbyterian Menís Group maintains the cemetery. There are approximately 160 burials. Oldest marked grave is that of Lydia Lopez, 1913. ._____.
