God welcomes us just as we are, and loves us too much to leave us there.

The Pathway offers a straightforward, holistic approach to your spiritual life and growth. No matter where you find yourself on your journey, The Pathway shows you a simple way forward. Whether you’ve never set foot in a church or you’re a 4th generation preacher’s kid, The Pathway helps you answer the question:

“What’s my next step?”







The Gospel calls us to respond.

Jesus said, “Come, follow me.” This is the foundational step and the ultimate motivation for life. We experience life by responding in faith to God’s invitation. Each step along the Pathway is a continued response to His call.


We are designed to do life together.

God designed life to be a “team sport.” Regardless of age or marital status, you are designed to experience life in community. The encouragement and accountability found in small groups is essential and catalytic to our spiritual life.


You are gifted for ministry.

Congratulations…you are gifted by God! Warning…those gifts were not given to you, for you. He gifted you for ministry so you can serve others. God wants us to be involved in His work. You experience immense fulfilment when utilizing the gifts He has given you to the benefit of others.


Our new life is a process.

Spiritual maturity is a lifelong process. God changes our identity at the moment of conversion, however, consistent engagement in proven spiritual disciplines is essential to your experience of salvation. Accountability nurtures steady growth.


Disciples make disciples.

The ultimate fulfillment of following Jesus is leading other people to follow Jesus. Spiritual maturity results in multiplication and is most profoundly seen in the lives of those you have discipled.
