Houston's First

Relevant Biblical Community

Real Life. Real People.

Welcome to Houston's First! We are a thriving and diverse community of real people experiencing real life together. Sundays are a time where we gather together to grow and give of what we have, but our lives consist of much more than attending church on Sunday. We want to be the church every day of the week.

Gather. Grow. Give.

A church our size has a lot to offer. In fact, there's so much going on, we realize it can be difficult finding the right place for you or your family. That's why we've based our ministry around a three-part strategy: Gather. Grow. Give.

GATHERING OUR HEARTS

Worship Services & Special Events


Worship services and special events are the primary ways the church family gathers our hearts together. Coming together like this reveals the beauty and diversity of God's children. No two people are exactly the same! And when we gather our hearts to praise Him or simply have a good time, there is room for everybody!

GROWING OUR SOULS

Life Bible Studies & Milestones


Life Bible Studies and Milestones are our main vehicles for growing our souls closer to God. They provide a place for us to explore the beauty and mystery of God's Word. These smaller settings also open the door for discussion with others as we seek to apply what we read in the Bible to our daily lives with friends to walk through it with you!

GIVING OUR LIVES

Missions & Volunteering


A soul growing closer to God simply cannot contain itself. Eventually, it will need to find a release. It will need something to do with the abundant love, grace, life, peace, joy, hope, mercy, forgiveness, redemption, well … you get the idea … that it's received from the Creator of the Universe. Missions and volunteering are just two such outlets.
