Accepting the Acts 1:8 challenge
Before leaving the earth Jesus gave his church a command; "But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come on you, and you will be My witnesses in Jerusalem, in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.”- Acts 1:8 (HCSB). Parkwood voluntarily affiliates with 3 partners to help us reach our respective circles of influence. We believe we are better together and it is cooperation with the greater Church that allows Parkwood to achieve this command of Christ.
Jacksonville is a great city that is rapidly becoming one of the most ethnically diverse cities in the South. Cooperating with the Jacksonville Baptist Association and the Engage Jax Movement allows Parkwood to fund local church plants, sponsor mission work and engage Jacksonville with the gospel of Jesus.
We have a lot of work to do to reach all of Florida for Christ. Partnering with Florida Baptist Convention, along with thousands of other churches, we have access to statewide training and mission experiences. Together we work to win all of Florida's citizens to Christ.
Ends of the Earth
When tragedy strikes, Southern Baptists arrive within minutes to provide aid and relief. Through the North American and International Mission Boards we will soon have a missionary bringing a gospel presence to every nation, tribe and tongue.
