Our History

OUR HISTORY

 Gospelway began meeting together on April 14th, 2019 and was constituted on September 13th, 2019.

Church planting is about getting a church started where there is a need for one. We did this with the help of Pastor Benjamin Workman of Mercy Baptist Church. Benjamin is originally from the Salisbury / Lexington area and expressed the need for a gospel-centered church in Rowan County.

In addition to Pastor Workman, guidance and accountability have also been gained from Pastor Jeff’s former pastor, Richie Honeycutt of Faith Baptist Church in Iron Station, NC

WHY THE NAME GOSPELWAY?

Many of the Puritan and early Baptist writers would use the term “the gospel-way” to explain the proclamation of the gospel that brings us to faith. (Rom. 10:17)

Thomas Boston stated that one can never find rest from their laboring “until they come to embrace the gospel-way of salvation; taking up its everlasting rest in Christ, for wisdom, righteousness, sanctification, and redemption.”

Spreading the rest of Christ found in the gospel is our mission, and our desire was to convey this, even in the name that we chose to identify our assembly.

CHURCHES PLANTING CHURCHES

It is the prayer of Gospelway that God will see fit to allow us to continue this church planting process in Rowan County and beyond as we grow biblically, spiritually, and numerically in the coming days.
