    A Change to the Parkside Church Sunday Worship Livestream

    Beginning Sunday, February 7, 2021, Truth For Life will no longer stream Sunday morning worship live from Parkside Church. This change means that the complete service, beginning at 9:45 a.m. eastern, will no longer be viewable at, on Truth For Life’s YouTube and Facebook pages, or through Truth For Life’s Roku, Fire TV, and Apple TV channels. The service will also no longer be available through the Alexa app.  
    Why is Truth For Life no longer streaming Parkside Church’s Sunday morning services when Alistair is preaching?

  • Meet Parkside's Pastoral Residents

    Beginning a new job in a new place during a pandemic can be overwhelming, but for Parkside’s four new residents, it has allowed them an inside look to how a church makes decisions. “When we began in August, all the ministries were starting up and trying to figure out how the church is going to do that with COVID precautions,” Peter Lindia said. “It was cool to get to watch and see how they’re making decisions.” 

    The precautions have made it difficult to get acquainted though. “As far as ministry right now, it’s limited a lot of the kind of the human normalcy of ministry of getting together and being comfortable with each other. There’s always potential worries or scares there,” said Zachary Mashburn. Regardless, each resident is finding their place.

  • A Word from Alistair Begg for Parkside

    Alistair Begg reminds us that during a time when diverse and polarizing opinions abound about meeting again as a church, we must remember that the gospel is what grounds us and unites us, and should be our continued focus. He encourages us to use this time to be gospel men and women who will not allow anything, even important things, cloud the mission of spreading the Good News where we are placed.

  • American Gospel Films

    For local documentary filmmaker Brandon Kimber, growing up in a church environment didn’t mean that he was hearing the gospel. In the church of his childhood, he heard that everyone deserves health and wealth, or that man is on par with God, and these distorted views of Christianity left him confused and questioning. Was Christianity Jesus plus the American Dream? Or Jesus plus wealth? Or was it different than that? 

    After listening to a sermon in college, Brandon started to see the true gospel come into focus. As he began to understand the gospel in a way that people around him were not, Brandon felt he needed a tool that would not only help him, but also help others communicate this truth.        


  • Derek Prime Thanksgiving Video

    Derek Prime was a pastor at Charlotte Chapel in Edinburgh for many years, was a mentor and dear friend to Alistair Begg, and went home to be with Lord this past March. "He was constantly reminding us that, along with him, we were stewards of the gospel," said Alistair, in his written reflection on Derek for Banner of Truth magazine.

    If you haven't had the opportunity to get to know Derek through his teaching or writing, we encourage you to watch this video of a man who faithfully taught the Scriptures and reminded each one to "love what is good," according to the encouragement found in Titus 1:8.
