"You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind, and with all your strength. And, you shall love your neighbor as yourself."
As Christians, we are committed to following Jesus’ command from Mark 12.30–31. This verse forms the basis for our core commitments to our faith; to our community; and to each other...
…WITH ALL YOUr Heart:
Park Road Baptist Church is a warm, caring, inter-generational community in south Charlotte. Members know and love one another, care for each other in times of need and reach out to people beyond our walls.
...with all your Soul:
Park Road values “soul freedom.” Members are responsible for their own spiritual understanding and growth in an environment which encourages discernment and exploration. Not all churches encourage such independence of thought - Park Road does.
...with all your MIND:
Park Road is a thinking congregation. Members express diverse theological perspectives but approach faith with an open mind, acknowledging other perspectives and appreciating the insights of all religious traditions.
...with all your STRENGTH:
Park Road is an active congregation. Members are active in missions, from a local elementary school to our Cuban church partnership, believing in a social gospel that changes communities and systems, not just individual hearts.
…and you shall love your NEIGHBOR:
Park Road is an inclusive, open and affirming church. We open our campus facilities to a variety of community organizations, reach out to homeless neighbors through several ministries and work with members of other faith traditions to foster understanding and cooperation.
