Our Mission

We want to be a people who care for, welcome, and support those around us in a way that can only be inspired by God. It's our hope that people who visit our church or interact with our people walk away feeling encouraged, refreshed, and drawn closer to God. We want every man, woman, and child in our community to have the chance to experience and respond to the Gospel in action we’re planning for the next generation of St. Paul Church and want you to be part of that plan.

Our Vision

Worship & Study

Through our worship gatherings, and timely Bible studies, we will learn more about God and grow in our knowledge and love for Him.

Evangelism & Outreach

By reaching out to and serving those around us, we will share God's love and His message of hope with the people in our community.

Multiplication & Sending

By making disciples and supporting fellow believers as they step out to launch new churches and ministries around the world, we will expand our reach to exhibit God's love to people across Central Texas and beyond.
