MISSION

“Connecting people to Jesus and helping them become His fully-devoted followers.”

VISION

“To be a world leader in Christ-centered life-transformation.”

Strategy

We accomplish our Mission and Vision through our simple strategy of “Following Jesus, In Community, For Others.” This strategy defines not only the church we desire to become, but also what motivates and inspires us to do what we do.

These three statements represent a process or “pathway” that can lead to a life fully-devoted to following Jesus. This is our greatest desire for you and for everyone that attends Pathway!

FOLLOWING JESUS

This means that you accept Jesus Christ as the Savior and Lord of your life, and completely surrender your life to God through Jesus’ death, burial, and resurrection.

Then, partner with us in a daily pursuit to be obedient to Jesus’ commands to love both God and others, and follow the leading of the Holy Spirit.

IN COMMUNITY

This is a commitment to do life together with a small group of other followers of Jesus.

God never intended the Christian life to be lived alone. Instead, He graciously provides the community of other believers to bring help, encouragement, accountability, correction, and joy to your life.

FOR OTHERS

This means together, with other Jesus followers, you reach out to both show and tell the Good News of Jesus Christ to others regardless of who they are, where they live, or what they have done.

Because of Jesus’ sacrifice, He continually seeks to give Himself away to others through your life.

What We Believe

WE BELIEVE
the Bible is the word of God. It is divinely inspired and the supreme and final authority for faith and life.
(II Timothy 3:16, 17)
WE BELIEVE
in the resurrection of the crucified body of our Lord, in His ascension into heaven, and His present life for us as high priest and advocate.
(I Corinthians 15:4; Acts 1:9-11; I John 2:1,2)
WE BELIEVE
in one God, eternally existing in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
(II Corinthians 13:14)
WE BELIEVE
in “the second coming;” the personal return of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
(I Thessalonians 4:13-18; Matthew 24:29-31)
WE BELIEVE
that Jesus Christ was begotten of the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary and is true God and true man.
(Luke 2:26-32; Colossians 1:15-18; Hebrews 2:14-18)
WE BELIEVE
that all who receive by faith the Lord Jesus Christ are born of the Holy Spirit and thereby become children of God, a relationship in which they are secure.
(Acts 16:31; Romans 8:38,39; Hebrews 3:5)
WE BELIEVE
that man was created in the image of God; that he sinned and thereby incurred not only physical death, but also spiritual death which is separation from God; and that all human beings are born with a sinful nature, and in the case of those who reach moral responsibility, become sinners in thought, word, and deed.
(Romans 3:23; Romans 5:12)
WE BELIEVE
that after a person is saved by faith in Jesus Christ he should publicly confess Christ and be baptized. We practice baptism by immersion only.
(Ephesians 2:8,9; Romans 6:3,4; Matthew 10:32,33)
WE BELIEVE
that the Lord Jesus Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures as a representative and substitutionary sacrifice and that all who believe in Him are justified on the ground of His shed blood.
(Colossians 1:14; Romans 3:23-26)
WE BELIEVE
in the bodily resurrection of the just and of the unjust: The everlasting blessedness of the saved and the everlasting conscious punishment of the lost.
(I Thessalonians 4:16, 17; Revelation 20:11-15)
