God spoke to Pastor Marty on September 22, 2008, and two scriptures have brought Pathway Church to this moment.
EXODUS 25:8–9 (NKJV)
8 And let them make Me a sanctuary, that I may dwell among them.
9 According to all that I show you, that is, the pattern of the tabernacle and the pattern of all its furnishings, just so you shall make it.
1 CHRONICLES 22:19 (NKJV)
Now set your heart and your soul to seek the Lord your God. Therefore ARISE and build the sanctuary of the Lord God, to bring the ark of the covenant of the Lord and the holy articles of God into the house that is to be built for the name of the Lord.
Over the last nine years, we have grown from a launch team to a family of over 1,000 people who believe we can take over the world. It is time to ARISE.
