Paramount Church is a thriving church plant of Open Door Baptist Church (Raleigh, NC) and the SEND Network of the North American Mission Board. In his first letter to the Corinthians, the Apostle Paul described the good news of the Gospel as that which was of first importance (1 Corinthians 15:3). Throughout God’s all-sufficient word, the Gospel is paramount. Nothing is as precious or powerful. The Gospel is the power of God to convert a sinner in a moment and to mature a believer over his lifetime (Romans 1:16). Paramount Church exists to make the Gospel paramount for the pleasure of God and the good of all men. Four words summarize our plans for Paramount Church: Gospel, Change, Community, and Mission.
