Our Goals:

We are a group of friends who want to walk with Jesus and others on the journey of life. We believe that when you are living this way you are choosing to be on the Pathway.

We are a group of friends who are experimenting with what it means to BE the church, not just go to church. Church is not a place, or a service, or a time of the week. “Church” is people.

The first church was such a tight group of friends that they hung out together regularly and took care of each other. It wasn’t a religious or ritualistic thing to them. It was all about relationship (See Acts 2:42-47). That’s what we want to be. We want to help people walk with God and others on the journey of life.

Our Vision:

To become a diverse group of Christ followers united in love and purpose.


Our Beliefs:

Some the main truths we believe…

  • That the Bible is God’s word and reveals his design and plan for humanity.
  • That there is only one true God who’s revealed himself in 3 persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
  • That Jesus was God in the flesh – fully human and fully man.
  • That humans were created good and because of sin are now less than what they should be. We have been separated from complete relationship with God and separated from our purpose.
  • That the only way back into a relationship with God, to be forgiven and able to reach our full potential is through faith in Jesus as Lord and Savior. He lived the perfect life we couldn’t. He took the punishment for our sins by dying on a cross and he rose again from the dead.
  • In baptism by immersion as a public demonstration of our faith and holy communion as the way Christ told us to remember him.
