At Parkway Pentecostal Church, our mission and vision are more than just statements that “look good” or allow us to check off a box on a corporate church growth policy. They truly express what we are trying to achieve and what we want to become. From our educational programs to our dynamic worship services, all are designed to bring us closer to fulfilling our mission and achieving every element of our vision.
Mission: Our mission is to make disciples of Jesus Christ.
Vision: Our vision is to be an Apostolic church in principle, practice, and power.
Since the early days of the Parkway, the purpose has been very clear. Preach Truth. Pray fervently. Study the Word. Reach the Lost. Worship in Spirit and in Truth. Twenty-five years later our purpose has not wavered. Our mission is still to lead people into to a growing relationship with Jesus Christ. We are grateful for the many people who have been apart of our story from 1991- Present. We invite you to watch this brief video as Bishop Jerry Dillon shares the journey.
Who We Are
We are a community church with a world vision whose purpose is to stand for Biblical truth; not forsaking the ancient landmarks of our fathers but expanding our boundaries to reach beyond traditional pentecostalism with a message, a vision and a burden for loving the lost, helping the hurting, ministering to the misfits, endeavoring and enduring that same message of love, mercy and forgiveness to a lonely world – - not with an exclusive but an inclusive gospel of whosoever will, let him come. Come without being criticized or condemned but called to a higher purpose and a sacred commitment to our savior Jesus Christ.
What We Believe
Parkway Pentecostal Church is a church striving to become a 21st Century Apostolic Church. We are founded upon the belief that the Bible is the inspired, infallible Word of God.
We believe in the great commission and are endeavoring to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ with love, mercy and compassion.
We believe there is only one God (Deuteronomy 6:4 ). He is the creator of heaven and earth, and of all living beings. He has revealed Himself to humanity as the Father (Creator), as the Son (Savior), and as the Holy Ghost (indwelling Spirit).
We believe in water baptism by immersion in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ for the remission of sin. Through baptism we identify with the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ. (Romans 6:3-6; Colossians 2:11-14; Acts 2:38)
We believe in the Baptism of the Holy Spirit with the initial sign of speaking in other tongues. (Acts 2:4)
We believe in the manifestation of the gifts of the Holy Spirit. God ministers to His people through tongues, interpretation of tongues, prophecy; words of knowledge and wisdom, discerning of spirits, faith, working of miracles, healing, helps and government. (Mark 16:15-18; Acts 5:16; 2 Corinthians 12:1-11)
Parkway Church has a world vision that includes ministering to North American Missionaries and Church Planters.
Each year, Parkway Church hosts The Apostolic Conference, which specializes in providing an atmosphere of ministry that targets those called to this mission field. It is the desire of this church to minister to these families each year, thereby fulfilling the call of Christ in Matthew 28:19.
