Grand Parkway Church was founded by Rev. Floyd Sorters in November 1947, formerly known as Pinecrest Assembly of God. The congregation met for several years in a small white frame building located on Sorters Road in Porter, Texas. Under their leadership the church grew and was able to build a new building in 1973. The building was only partially completed when Rev. Robert Durham became pastor in February of 1977. As the church grew, the congregation took to the task of finishing and remodeling the sanctuary and classrooms to accommodate the growth.
The church went through four more building phases, remodeling and enlarging the existing facilities as the need arose. With each new phase the church grew in number until we finally outgrew our previous location. Seeing the need to relocate we purchased land on FM 1314. with a new vision of a more functional complex we built the first phase, the Family Life Center, and moved in November of 2002. Since that day we have seen new growth and excitement generated within our people, looking with anticipation to the next phase where our new sanctuary, with more classes and offices to meet our growing needs.
We are going forward in this community and would love for you to come and be a part of us as we let God continue to write our future.
It is our vision at GPC to see those in our church and community brought to greater knowledge of God's word, walking and living in obedience, strong in their belief and faith, and with a sure foundation of who they are in Christ Jesus. We desire to help believers build their personal lives, relationships, marriages, families, finances, and businesses on the solid rock of Gods Word, raising up strong disciples who are ready to face any and all of life's challenges and to win the lost for Christ.
