ABOUT US

Mission

To be and make disciples of Jesus who love God, one another, and our world.

Loving God

We delight in knowing, loving, and glorifying God above all else. As sons and daughters of God, we grow in our relationship with the Lord by relentlessly pursuing Him, trusting in our Savior, turning from sin, and living by the power of the Spirit.

Loving One Another

We follow Jesus together in community. As brothers and sisters in Christ, we do life together, pray, study God’s word, care for one another, and reach out to our neighbors.

Loving Our World

We love our neighbors in the Bay Area and people all over the world. As servants and witnesses, we proclaim the Gospel, serve those in need and bless our locality in word and deed.

We are God’s people making much of Jesus in everyday life for the good of the neighborhoods in the Bay Area of Houston and beyond.

As redeemed people we’ve been given new life and brought into the family of God. Together we live to tell of and demonstrate the Gospel of Jesus in the everyday
rhythms of life.

We envision a community of people, deeply committed to loving one another in tangible and thoughtful ways. We are a people who encourage each other’s callings and gifts and live together in the way of Jesus by serving and working for the good of the Bay Area of Houston.
