|Our Vision and Mission|
The people of Parkside Christian Church are committed to bring glory (honor, respect, and notoriety) to God in all ways. (John 12:28 / Ephesians 1:12)
We glorify God by living in a way that honors him and draws favorable attention to him. We glorify God by understanding his will and his work, and carrying it out. We will ensure that everything we plan and do proceeds out of this vision for Parkside.
We will bring glory to God in all ways . . .
God's will for us is clear.
It is key that we understand what Jesus meant by making a disciple. The word disciple literally means student, learner or follower. A person's expression of faith and submission to baptism is the first step in becoming a disciple. A convert becomes a mature disciple when he or she is taught and observes everything that Jesus commanded in order to be like him. Jesus asks each of us to then turn and make disciples of others. (II Timothy 2:2)
