WHO WE ARE

Our Mission...

The Mission of Parkway House of Prayer is to lead people into becoming fully devoted followers of Jesus Christ. The main way we share that message is by our various ministries. Whether you want to serve on the mission field or in the community, join a small group, or just connect in a variety of ways the ministries here at Parkway will help you Belong, Believe and Become all that Christ wants for you. 

We believe in salvation by grace. This is a free gift from God, given to all who

believe in His Son Jesus, the Christ, and accept Him as the Lord of their life.

 

 We believe in the deity of our Lord, Christ Jesus. Jesus is God incarnate, and was

manifest in human flesh. He was like us in all ways except for one, being free

from sin.

 

We believe that the Bible, both the Old and New Testaments, is the verbally

inspired Word of God and is the revelation of God to man, the infallible,

authoritative rule of faith and conduct.

 

We believe in one God, eternally existent in three persons: God the Father, God

the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.

Our Beliefs...

Our Story...

Parkway House of Prayer was founded by Robert L. Painter in 1947 and through the life of this church many people have accepted Jesus Christ as their personal Lord and Savior. Since then Parkway continues to make the commitment to lead people into becoming fully devoted followers of Jesus Christ. 

 

Parkway House of Prayer is full of rich history but most of all we strive to glorify God with everything we do and reach the lost with the name of Jesus.
