WHAT WE BELIEVE
We believe the Bible is the Word of God. It teaches a transformation of life is available through personal relationship with Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior lived out in authentic biblical community. We hold to the Baptist Faith and Message 2000 as our doctrinal standard because it represents this truth well and serves as a helpful framework to carry out our core values (Baptist Faith and Message 2000).
 
CORE VALUES
BIBLICALLY BASED
The truth and authority of God‘s Word are the guide for all of life. So we preach it and teach it, verse by verse, courageously and graciously, only trusting in the Savior of Scripture, and never systems made by man.
(Acts 2:42-43, 6:4, 2 Timothy 3:16, 2 Peter 1:20-21, 3:18)
 
SATURATED & MOTIVATED BY GRACE
The grace of Jesus, by which all are saved, saturates our lives and motivates every aspect of our pursuits. With a clear conscience, we seek to find favor with our brothers and sisters as well as those outside of the faith.
(Acts 2:47, 2 Corinthians 9:8, Ephesians 2:8-9, 2 Peter 3:18)
 
AUTHENTIC COMMUNITY
God has made all humanity for a togetherness in real relationships that lead to ongoing spiritual transformation. This lifestyle of discipleship is available in authentic biblical communities, best experienced when members BELONG in Community Groups.
(Matthew 18:15-19, Acts 2:44-46, 2 Corinthians 13:14, Ephesians 4:1-16, 1 Timothy 1:5, Hebrews 10:24-25, 1 John 1)
 

URGENT EVANGELISM

Because we believe Jesus is coming again, we intentionally cultivate a lifestyle of personal evangelism and carry out the Great Commission. We are called to the HEART of KATY PLUS – the Heart of Katy, All of Katy, & the Ends of the Earth.
(Mt 28:18-20, Acts 2:47, Rom 10:9-15, 1 Corinthians 9:22)
 
SURRENDERED STEWARDSHIP
Every believer is called to surrender themselves to stewardship. Our time, talents, and treasures are gifts of God. We give of our TIME by committing to prioritize the weekly gathering in our lives because the church is the only institution that will not fail. We give of our TALENTS because all are called to find a place to serve on mission with God helping others draw near to Jesus, and we give of our TREASURES by giving financial offerings to Katy’s First generously, sacrificially, and regularly for the purposes of Kingdom work.
(Matthew 16:18, Mark 10:45, Acts 2:45, 1 Corinthians 12:12, 2 Corinthians 9:7, Colossians 3:17, 1 Peter 4:10)
 
SPIRIT-FILLED WORSHIP
Every aspect of our worship honors and celebrates the spirit of unity accomplished by the blood of Jesus. We do this by blending hymns and modern songs sound in theology and timeless truths. Worship should exalt Jesus while also drawing people to Him. We will never be distracted by a style or personal preference of worship, but instead we will always be captivated by the Savior of our worship.
(1 Corinthians 9:22, Ephesians 2:11-19, Ephesians 5:15-20, Colossians 3:16, Revelation 4:8-11)
 
PASSIONATE PRAYER
Prayer represents the posture of our hearts and lives, fully dependent upon God. It is essential in everything we do, even helping us accept all ways in which God may choose to bring about His glory, knowing He is always for us.
(Romans 8:26-28, Colossians 4:2, James 1:17, 5:16)
 

CONNECT

The next step on your way to membership is to CONNECT with our church family. At Katy’s First we stress the fact that we were created and designed to do life with others. We also recognize that relationships don’t happen over night, and so step two is to begin meeting people and finding your spot within our family.

There are different ways to go about this, but the best way is through different gatherings outside of Sunday worship.

BELONG

We all know what it feels like to be a number instead of being known. We also know how discouraging it can be when relationships prove to be artificial instead of authentic. The Bible says this was not God’s design.

God created life to be lived and shared with others. We were created for a belonging in AUTHENTIC BIBLICAL COMMUNITY. All people should be able to have this community at a Bible-believing church.

The Bible teaches that church membership is a vital part of all believers following Jesus as their personal Lord and Savior. With the exception of extraordinary circumstances, God desires for believers to connect with other believers in authentic relationships, grounded within the context of belonging as a member to a local bible believing church. Membership in a local church identifies for a Pastor the sheep under his care and identifies for a believer the shepherd God has provided for them.

Our leadership is dedicated to helping you navigate and forge authentic biblical relationships as part of the Katy’s First family.
