Your next step at Pathway


Go Public with Your Faith.

When we have placed our trust in Jesus as the Way, the Truth, and the Life,
we follow through by being baptized. It’s what Jesus modeled and taught.
Baptism isn’t what saves us—Christ on the cross was the price paid for our salvation.
We get into the water as a symbolic expression of Romans 6:3.


Relationships are your lifeline

Small groups are designed to provide a consistent,
ongoing opportunity to experience deeper connections with God and with others.
They meet in homes, any time throughout the day, any day of the week.


Unleash your passion and purpose

You are called to live on mission here, near, and far.
We have outlined dozens of opportunities for you to
explore that calling through the ministries of PCC.


Freedom in Obedience

The Bible teaches that we are to honor God with the
first fruits of our labor. As followers of Christ, we surrender
all of our time, talent, and treasure to Him—it all belongs to
God, already. He invites us to live generously, and to partner
with Him in the good work He is doing.
