During this time, we believe that the most loving thing for us to do is to continue as we have been with our current forms of worshipping online and with family, friends, and neighbors at home. We worship together right here every Sunday at 10am. We will continue to remain flexible and responsive to the Spirit’s leadership and the direction of local authorities in this and will announce a new date for limited in-person worship gatherings as soon as it is safe to do so.
RADICALLY FOCUSED ON JESUS
We will lift up the name of Jesus above every name and will be passionate worshippers
SERVING THE CITY AND WORLD
We will serve and give sacrificially to bring the gospel to the vulnerable and lost in Jesus’ name
We will start new churches throughout the city to reach new people
In the summer of 2011, God gave us a vision for a vibrant worshipping church with a clear and simple focus on Jesus. There was no elaborate strategy, only a deep desire to see Jesus magnified in our city. We gathered about 50 of our friends to share the vision and see if the Spirit of God was moving them to join us.
God stirred in those people, and we launched Bayou City Fellowship in September 2011 at Houston Christian High School with about 400 people in attendance. By God’s grace, we continued to experience growth, including launching a second campus in Cypress in 2013 and a third campus in Tomball in 2019. We daily experience his gracious provision and are seeking to remain steadfast in our focus on Jesus and his purposes in our city and world.
We exist for the glory of God (Isaiah 43:7, 2 Peter 1:3, Revelation 1:6).
We will lift up the name of Jesus above every name (Philippians 2:9-10).
We will welcome the active and empowering ministry of the Holy Spirit (John 14:26).
We will aim to please God with unshakeable faith (2 Corinthians 5:7, Hebrews 11, Ephesians 6:16).
We will be passionate worshippers (Psalm 29:2, Psalm 95:6, Hebrews 12:28).
We will preach and teach the Bible as the authoritative Word of God (Hebrews 4:12).
We will be a house of prayer (Mark 11:17, Acts 4:31, Romans 12:12).
We will be relentless in spreading the gospel through words and actions (Matthew 9:37-38).
We will use our resources for the good of the city and the world instead of exhausting them on our own physical and spiritual entertainment (James 1:27, Isaiah 58:6-11).
Since our beginning, we have been deeply committed to preaching and teaching the Bible as the authoritative Word of God. The scriptures provide clarity and guidance in all of our decisions, and our doctrinal statement provides an outline of our core beliefs and affirmations.
The secondary leaders are called servants or deacons in the Bible. They serve the members of the Church and give leadership to the specific ministries of the Church (Acts 6:1-7). Deacons are appointed by the elders and overseers with input from the members of the Church (Acts 6:1-7). These servants or deacons may be men or women and must fit the qualifications of 1 Timothy 3:8-13 (Romans 16:1, 1 Timothy 3:11).
