Our Mission

Parkway Baptist Church is a Bible-based body of Christian Believers committed to winning souls for Christ by reaching out to the community and the world to build the kingdom of God.

We are a ministry of compassionate care that transforms human life by meeting the physical and spiritual needs of others.

  We are called to carry out the Great Commission by spreading the good news of eternal life and developing people to become disciples for Christ.

  We believe in a social gospel that compels us “...to do justly, and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with thy God.” Micah 6:8

The church within the church
Is one that cannot fail-
A body of true believers,
Alive and functioning well.
The family of the Living God
Is united in every way,
Living a life of worship and praise,
Serving the Lord each day.
Oh, what a blessed fruit bestowed
Upon each believers heart,
When brought into God’s Family
To be an active part.
Such a precious union in the Father
Who gave His only Son, To establish His body of believers-
A family United as One.
