logo1The Bible Way Temple of Deliverance has been blessed for over 21 years with a pastor who is known for his integrity. Apostle A. Philip Parrott has given his life over to preaching and teaching the word of God that the lost might be saved and men and women of God might be changed. He continues steadfastly in the apostolic faith as an apostle committed to prayer and the reconciliation of the body of Christ.

Apostle A. Philip Parrott is the senior pastor of the Bible Way Temple of Deliverance located in Trenton, New Jersey. He is a native of New Jersey and was born in Newark to the union of the late Apostle James W. Parrott, Sr. and Shepard Mother Ann Parrott on Friday, December 13, 1957.

Apostle Parrott was raised in East Orange, New Jersey and attended the East Orange public school system where he excelled academically. He graduated high school and went on to attend Montclair State University and Bloomfield College. He later received an Honorary Doctorate of Ministry from Bereon Theological Seminary, Long Beach California.

He was reared in the Lighthouse Temple Church of Newark, New Jersey where his father Apostle J. W. Parrott was the pastor and founder. There, they fostered in him a passion for God and ministry. Apostle Parrott was baptized in Jesus name at the age of seven and on April 9, 1967, he received the baptism of Holy Ghost when he was only nine years old. As a young man of God, he faithfully served the Lighthouse Temple Church in the following positions: Junior Brother, Junior Deacon, Deacon, and eventually Minister.

On August 10, 1981, A. Philip married the S. Dyanne Mattox and to this union was born three children, Elder Justin Philip, DeAndrea Faith, and Shashauna DyAnne, and they have one precious granddaughter, Jayla Diona Atkins.

In 1982, Apostle Parrott was ordained an Elder in the Church of Our Lord Jesus Christ under the leadership of Bishop William L. Bonner. In 1985, after being sent by the late Apostle J.W. Parrott to aid his grandfather Bishop William A. Clark, Sr. in ministry, he joined the Bible Way Church in Trenton, NJ. Later, Apostle Parrott, then an Elder, was officially installed as pastor of the Bible Way Church May 1, 1993.

In 1995, Apostle Parrott was appointed to District Elder at the recommendation of Bishop Franklin Pettiford. He continued to serve the ministry faithfully, and later, under the leadership of Chief Apostle Huie L. Rogers of the Bible Way Churches World Wide, Inc. (BCWWW, Inc.) he was consecrated to the office of Bishop on July 04, 1998. In this capacity, he served on the General Board of Bishops for the BCWWW, Inc., and in March 2010, was elected to the Executive Board of Bishops.

It is Apostle A. Philip Parrott’s great desire to serve God and serve the people of God with passion, wisdom, and humility. He is committed to reaching those who do not know the Lord Jesus Christ that they might come into a relationship with Him. He is dedicated to sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ throughout the world. From now and until the return to the Lord, his ministry is as ‘the voice of him that crieth in the wilderness, prepare ye the way of the Lord, make straight in the desert a highway for our God (Isaiah 40:3).’
