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.


We grow in God’s Word and in groups.

Life groups are designed to provide consistent,
ongoing opportunities to experience deeper
connection with God and with others. These groups
meet in a variety of places, any time throughout
the day, any day of the week.


Unleash your passion and purpose

We are called to live on mission here, near, and far.
Take a next step toward full life in Christ by
finding a place to serve others—at Pathway, in our
community, or around the world.


Freedom in Obedience

The Bible teaches us to honor God with the
first fruits of our labor. As followers of Christ,
we choose to surrender 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. It is our joy and privilege!
