Welcome to Parker Bible Church!
Where people are excited about God’s Word.
PBC is a fellowship of believers that is focused on fulfilling God’s purpose and plan for the local church as revealed in God’s Word. We believe in the absolute authority, sufficiency, and infallibility of the Word of God. It is our high view of Scripture that provides the foundation upon which every area of ministry is built.
At PBC, we embrace expository preaching, that is, teaching that exposes the meaning of the text of Scripture and applies it to life. Our goal is to honor Christ by equipping people with the necessary tools for living godly lives, raising godly families, serving and loving the family of God, and sharing the Gospel of Christ with a lost world.
“Grace and peace be multiplied to you in the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord, as His divine power has given us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of Him who called us by glory and virtue.” – 2 Peter 1:2-3
PBC August News
From Your Pastor’s Heart
The images we have seen this past week (of Christians and other minorities in Iraq) is heart-wrenching … people who are suffering and dying on top of a mountain because of the fear of terrorists. Many of these are our brothers and sisters in Christ, who are persecuted for their faith in Jesus. We should be praying diligently for these believers, that God would intervene on their behalf. We should also be praying for thousands of other Christians who are persecuted in varying degrees, and we should thank God daily for the freedom we have here in the United States to worship and serve the Lord without that kind of persecution.
Perhaps we will not always enjoy that kind of freedom. Perhaps there will be a day here in this country when true believers in Christ will have to stand up to severe persecution. We may not be that far away from that. But as long as the Lord allows us to live in this kind of liberty, we should make the most of that opportunity to point people to Christ. “Therefore be careful how you walk, not as unwise men, but as wise, making the most of your time, because the days are evil.” (Eph. 5:15-16) – Pastor KIrk.

Celebrating 20 years … Did you know?
Did you know that PBC met in an elementary school in the early days? That first Sunday we had 119 people and every visiting family received bread that week. That’s a lot of muffins!
Read Through the Bible in 2014
The elders and deacons would like to challenge you to make a commitment to read through the Bible in 2014. You might want to consider getting the MacArthur Daily Bible or some other Bible plan to help you with this. You also might benefit from someone who will agree to hold you accountable, but this is a worthy goal for the New Year.
