Our Mission


We are a family of believers helping all pursue the way, seek the truth, and find new life through God—the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. 


Our Mission is to make disciples of Jesus Christ who worship passionately, love extravagantly, and witness boldly.

We Believe

In the Holy Trinity - Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.


The Bible is the inspired Word of God.


Jesus Christ died on the cross to pay the penalty for our sins.


Jesus Christ rose from the dead proving His victory over sin and death.


Jesus Christ is now in heaven preparing a place for His followers.


A person is saved by repenting of their sins and placing their faith in Jesus Christ for their salvation.


Followers of Christ should live a life of loving God and loving others, and should strive to live out the teachings of the Bible.


Followers of Christ should share the Good News of Jesus Christ with their family, friends, and others.


Followers of Christ should gather for worship, fellowship, discipleship, ministry, and missions.


Followers of Christ will go to heaven and live with God for eternity.


In keeping with our Methodist heritage, communion at Pathway is open to all, regardless of denominational background.  We understand the Communion Table to be the Lord’s Table, and His invitation is to all who desire to follow Him.  We celebrate communion on the first Sunday of every month in our traditional service at 9:00 am.  In our modern service at 11:00 am, we receive communion every week.

We also regard the Lord’s Supper as a means of grace.  God’s love and grace compelled Him to send us a Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ.  Jesus, the Son of God, died on the cross to pay the penalty for our sins.  When we take communion we remember what Jesus did for us at Calvary.  We remember that His body was broken for us and His blood was poured out for the forgiveness of sins.  As we take communion God is graciously inviting us into a personal saving relationship with Him.  When a person responds affirmatively to the invitation, they enter into a relationship with God through Jesus Christ and find eternal life.  In other words, they experience the grace of Jesus Christ in its fullest form.


Some have wondered why we use grape juice, instead of wine.  The reason for this is that historically, early Methodists were very conscious of the fact that there were many sober alcoholics among them, trying hard to live a new life.  Not wanting to violate their vow of sobriety, the Methodist Church chose to use non-alcoholic wine, or grape juice, in its celebration of Communion. 


Baptism is the sacrament of initiation into the Body of Christ, the Church.  It is a public profession of one’s intent to follow Jesus Christ.  The Scriptures tell us to “Go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you” (Matthew 28:19-20).  Baptism is the beginning of a lifelong process of growth in Christ.  It is a sacrament ordained by Jesus Christ.  It can be received only once, but its effects are lasting.  In the Global Methodist Church, any Christian Baptism is recognized.


Like most denominations, we baptize older children and adults.  Such baptisms emphasize one’s personal acceptance of God's gift of salvation through Jesus Christ and one’s serious commitment to Christian discipleship.

We also offer Infant Dedication Ceremonies where parents make vows to raise their child in the ways of the Lord and they invite the church family to help instill Christian values into their child’s life.  We also offer Infant Baptisms for families who prefer Infant Baptisms over Infant Dedications.


We do not insist on any one form of baptism, as do some denominations.  We recognize three methods - immersion, sprinkling, and pouring.  The method chosen will often depend upon the location of the baptism and the personal choice of the one being baptized.

Baptism is a requirement for membership in the Global Methodist Church and is arranged through consultation with the Senior Pastor.
