THE PARAMOUNT CHURCH was founded in 1994 by the Rev. Dwight M. Stevens, a medical doctor who practiced Dermatology with the Palm Beach Medical Group in West Palm Beach from 1977 until 1992, until his call into full-time ministry. He received a Doctorate in Theology from South Florida Bible College & Theological Seminary.
The beliefs of our Protestant Non-Denominational Christian Church are centered around the Gospel: Salvation through Christ and growth of Christian character.
The Gospel of Jesus Christ is simply the offer of forgiveness of sins by Jesus’ shedding of His blood on the cross for each of us. This free gift of forgiveness is offered to all, but must be received individually. With that comes the promise and certainty of eternal life with God in heaven.
While here on earth, we believe God wants us to become reflective of His nature, as evidenced by the Fruit of the Holy Spirit which is defined in Galatians 5:22 as: Love, Joy, Peace, Patience, Kindness, Goodness, Faithfulness, Gentleness and Self Control. A true Christian is to display these characteristics in his or her life; therefore it is our endeavor to teach and promote the increase of these essential virtues.
The greatest of these virtues is love, defined biblically as: Love is patient, kind, does not envy, does not boast, is not proud, is not rude, is not easily angered, keeps no record of wrongs, thinks the best, does not delight in evil but rejoices in the truth, always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always endures, always perseveres (1 Corinthians 13:4-7)
Our Tenets of Faith include the foundational beliefs in the infallibility of the Bible, the Trinity, the Deity of Jesus Christ, the Power of the Holy Spirit, and Water Baptism by immersion. [ over please ]
A significant part of our service consists of Praise and Worship, with a combination of traditional and contemporary music, as we believe God is to be worshiped in both reverent and joyful song. After all, the longest book in the Bible is a songbook, the Book of Psalms.
The Paramount Church is one of four Christian Churches in Palm Beach and is the only church that has successfully established itself in Palm Beach since 1926.
In addition to the Paramount Church, Pastor Stevens is involved in many local organizations and activities, including The Gathering of Men, Third World Medical Outreaches through Missions of Mercy, Inc., The Palm Beach Fellowship of Christians & Jews, Confrerie des Chevaliers du Tastevin Sous Commanderie de Palm Beach, Monthly Classic Films Showings, Palm Beach Sigma Chi Alumni Club, and Preservation of the Historic Landmark Paramount Theatre Building.
Everyone is welcome to join us at our Worship Services.
Our hope is that God will touch your life as you worship, hear God’s truths in the Bible, partake of communion which is offered at every service, and fellowship with others afterwards. Please join us.
