Pathway Church officially launched on September 26th, 2010. We can be described as a modern, Bible-believing church (see statement of beliefs) with a focus on relevant communication, team ministry, and practical community service. We want to create environments where people can come and hear the truth of the Bible in a culturally relevant way and to connect with others who are already on the path. At Pathway Church you will not find perfect people … but it is our hope that you will find real people who are seeking to know the One who is perfect.
In February 2009, Nathan & Jessica Blais began to follow the leading of the Lord towards establishing a new church in the city of Peterborough. This decision was not an easy one as it would require leaving their home church to pursue the call of God in a new way. After much prayer, counsel, and numerous meetings with the Leadership of Selwyn Church they began to make plans about how to best impact their community. Their dream is to impact the city of Peterborough and the surrounding region with the message of hope that Jesus brings. A launch team of 5 families from Selwyn Church joined together in May 2010 as preparations began. We are excited about the future of Pathway Church and we hope that you will join us as the Pathway story continues to be written. The first Pathway service was on September 26, 2010.
The Mission of Pathway Church is the driving force behind everything we do. It is God’s mission and so it must also be ours. If we are not actively pursuing this cause … our doors should be closed! Our mission is: “to reach people far from God, and see them become devoted followers of Jesus.” Every church has its own flavour, and each one will reach people in different ways! The Vision of Pathway Church is the specific way that we believe God is calling us to accomplish His mission.
