Vision, Mission, & Beliefs 

As stated by Parkview Church           

 

Values

Driven by God's Agenda We believe that faith empowered by prayer connects us to the heart of God and is the catalyst to accomplishing the will of God.Hebrews 11:6 - “And without faith it is impossible to please him, for whoever would draw near to God must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who seek him.”

Fueled by God's Word We believe God's Word has the answer to all of life's questions, and therefore, we surrender willingly to its timeless truths.2 Timothy 3:16 - “All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness.”

 

Consumed by God's Heart We believe that engaging with God in passionate worship leads to a public expression of our private experiences.

Romans 12:1 - “I appeal to you therefore, brothers, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship.”

 

Drenched by God's Grace We believe that grace is the outpouring of God's unconditional love that flows to us and through us to others. 2 Corinthians 9:8 - “And God is able to make all grace abound to you, so that having all sufficiency in all things at all times, you may abound in every good work.”

 

Compelled by God's Love We believe that, because people matter to God, we will move with radical abandonment to reach our neighbors and the nations. Acts 1:8 - “But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.”

 

Connected with God's People We believe that life change happens best in the context of community. We will actively pursue relationships in which we grow and serve together. Acts 2:46-47 - “And day by day, attending the temple together and breaking bread in their homes, they received their food with glad and generous hearts, praising God and having favor with all the people. And the Lord added to their number day by day those who were being saved.” 

 

Mission

To mission of Parkview Church “Guiding people to life change in Christ”

 

Beliefs           

God- There is one eternally existing God who has three distinct persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. He is the creator of all that exists, both visible and invisible, and is therefore worthy of all glory and praise. God is perfect in love, power, holiness, goodness, knowledge, wisdom, justice, and mercy. He is unchangeable and therefore is the same yesterday, today, and tomorrow.

 

Revelation- God has revealed himself to us through his son, Jesus Christ, who is the visible image of the invisible God, the holy scriptures, and through all of creation itself.

Mankind- Humans, both male and female, were created in God’s image for His glory. The first humans, Adam and Eve, were created without sin and appointed as caretakers of the rest of God’s creations.

 

The Fall- When Adam and Eve chose not to obey God, they ceased to be what they were made to be and became distorted images of God. This caused them to fall out of fellowship with God, and fractured all of creation ever since that time.

 

Salvation- Jesus Christ came to reconcile us with God. He lived a life without sin and willingly died on the cross to pay the penalty for our transgressions. God raised him from the dead and no, by grace, offers as a free gift eternal life to all who follow Christ, by faith, as their Lord and Savior. That is why salvation can be found in Christ alone.

 

The Church- The Church is meant to be the visible body of Christ, sent into the world to glorify God and proclaim the gospel of Jesus Christ.

 

Resurrection- Jesus Christ is returning one day to judge both the living and the dead and to usher in the fullness of God’s kingdom on earth.

 

Ministry Programming

The following is a concise overview of the ministries at Parkview Church.   

 

Children

Parkview has an incredible space for their weekly children’s ministry and is excited about expanding that space in the near future. The goal of Parkview’s children's ministry is to create a partnership with parents and to resource them to see children come into a life changing relationship with Jesus! The Parkview children’s ministry team is passionate about providing a safe place that provides age-appropriate, fun, and creative ways to experience the teachings of the Bible. There are three creative environments designed for children 6 weeks- 6th grade. 

 

Students

At Parkview, their desire is to see students not only grow in their relationship with God but actually be equipped to be the spiritual leaders of tomorrow. This is done through ‘OverFlo’ Student Nights every Sunday at 6:00pm at the Palm Coast location. OverFlo is a night that includes games, music, food, groups, and solid teaching. Parkview is dedicated to providing a safe space for students to connect with God, committed leaders, and other students. 

 

Group Life

Parkview believes life change happens best in the context of community. Life Groups are designed to help people become connected to others and to take their relationship with God to the next level. Life Groups are provided in groups of similar age, interest, life stage and/or family structure. Parkview seeks to create an authentic biblical community through life groups, that exists to love and serve each other and to connect people to help them grow in their walk with God. 

 

Helps Ministries

Parkview’s Helps Ministries offer "help" to those who are hurting, confused or just need support. Parkview believes just because you are a Christian does not mean you are immune to life's challenges, struggles and times of crisis. Their team provides a variety of ways for people to grow personally, spiritually and emotionally through Emmanuel’s Closet, Deaf Ministry, Food Pantry, and Pastoral Care.

Missions

In addition to serving on Sunday mornings and weekdays within the walls of the church, the Parkview community extends the same attention to its local, and global partners. They seek to mobilize the church to meet those needs with the love of Christ in partnership with over 12 local and international missionaries and organizations. The church also assembles short term national and international efforts to take the Gospel to the unreached people of the world. No matter how God has wired or gifted you, Parkview believes you can use those skills to bring life change to your city, state, and to your world. 

Weekend Programming

At Parkview, one will discover an authentic group of real people dedicated to following Jesus Christ. In this environment filled with growth and anticipation, a heartfelt greeting is a key part of the Sunday experience. It further offers a casual atmosphere where friendships can form and relationships deepen.
