What We Believe
I'm New Here
Mount Paran North has existed in Marietta since 1987. First as a campus of Mount Paran Church of God, then, in 1997, as a stand-alone church. At that time our Senior Pastor, Dr. Paul Walker was elected General Overseer of the Church of God, and his son, Dr. Mark Walker was appointed Senior Pastor of Mount Paran North.
With several thousand members and weekly attenders, Mount Paran North has always been about reaching the lost and helping the believer grow spiritually. However, in recent years, Pastor Mark has led us on an intentional journey emphasizing the spiritual growth and development of each person, and a greater desire to reach the lost for Christ.
Out of that desire was birthed the idea of a new ministry outreach of Mount Paran North.
In June of 2011, after much prayer and planning, we announced to our current congregation in Marietta that we were planning to open a new campus in Canton. While there were a number of determining factors, our hearts were drawn to the 85,000 unchurched people within 7 miles of Sequoyah High School in Canton. Nearly 150 people expressed interest in helping get the new campus launched and about 100 joined our launch team, committing to attend and serve at MPNCanton.
In January 2012 Mount Paran North Canton held our first official worship service at Sequoyah High School with 263 people in attendance. Our first Easter in April of 2012 we had over 500 people in two services. We continue to do ministry with the 85,000 in mind.
We are thankful for all that God has done in and through us so far, and can't wait to see all that the future holds!
