The Parkway Church desires to be a people who exult in and exalt the glory of biblical truth. Everything we do and hope to be is tethered to our treasuring of truth. It is the foundation and framework of each and every sermon, class, community group and anything else we do. Rather than diluting truth, we want to revel in it and feast upon it.

Here is a short summary of those foundational truths we find to be most glorious, beautiful, and truly transformative for how we think and live.

 

We believe: 

...the Scriptures are inspired, inerrant, authoritative and sufficient.

...there is only one true God, Creator of heaven and earth, who eternally exists in three distinct persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

...all things exist for the glory of God who is absolutely sovereign and good.

...all humanity—Christ excluded—is sinful by natural descent and willful action.

...the deserved penalty for sin is physical and spiritual death.

...Jesus Christ is the eternal Son of God, was born of a virgin and is both fully God and fully human.

...Jesus Christ died as the sacrificial substitute to pay the penalty for sin.

...Jesus Christ physically rose from the dead, ascended into heaven and will one day physically return.

...there will be a future physical resurrection of the dead.

...those who turn from sin and to Jesus in faith and repentance will be raised to eternal reward while those who do not turn from sin and to Jesus will be raised to eternal punishment.

...only through faith in the person and work of Jesus Christ and repentance from sin can one be reconciled to God and experience true life and joy.
