But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.
— Acts 1:8
How does a Christian make his or her life count in a big way? By knowing Christ and making Him known. A person becomes a believer when he or she begins a new life in Christ, yet the journey lasts a lifetime. While we are growing in our relationship with Him, we want to share His love and the Gospel story with others.
Jesus told his disciples that they would have an ever-expanding influence from their community to the ends of the world. God's desire is for people to become disciples, and we seek to care and share in our community, our state, our country, and around the world.
Learn more about how we are sharing the gospel here, there, and everywhere.
We share the hope of Christ by meeting needs and building relationships within our community.
But if anyone has the world’s goods and sees his brother in need, yet closes his heart against him, how does God’s love abide in him? Little children, let us not love in word or talk but in deed and in truth.
— 1 John 3:17-18
STATE & National missions
Less than 20 percent of Americans regularly attend church services. When we take the transforming message of Christ out to Texas and beyond, we give hope to a broken world.
Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, 'Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?' And I said, 'Here am I. Send me!'
— Isaiah 6:8

This team provides tree removal due to damage caused by natural disasters to those who are unable to perform it themselves or afford the services.

Jesus said to His disciples, "But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you
Jerusalem (local) – This was the city where the disciples were when Jesus gave them the Acts 1:8 command. Our witness to Jesus Christ and His saving power begins at home in Collin County, Texas. We are to tell our friends and neighbors about Jesus. We are to seek to meet the needs of people and minister in Jesus’ name.
Judea (state/regional) – This was the province where Jerusalem was located. They were to take the message outside the city. We are called to take the message of Christ to the state of Texas. It is a large, growing and spiritually lost
Samaria (national) – This was a neighboring province and reminds us of our responsibility not just for our city and state but for our nation as well. Our ministry reaches out to North America. Like the Samaritans of the first century, our “Samaria” may include those who are near to us but different from us economically, racially, spiritually, or culturally.
Ends of the Earth (international) – God has given each of us a responsibility for our world coming to know Christ. We are committed to missions around the world. We can give and we can pray in support of those who go but we can also go ourselves. We seek to involve members of our church in missions ministry around the world in personal ways.
