Thank You for Visiting our Website,
In May 1997 my wife and I came to Austin, TX. We first began by holding Bible Studies in our home. In January 1998 we leased a small storefront facility on Rutland Drive. A new church was soon taking shape, and the work became self-supporting in 2000. In 2003 the church moved its worship services to a larger facility on E. Yager Ln. By 2009, the church was blessed to purchase a property at the current Pond Springs location.
My wife and I are very grateful for the privilege to witness and be part of God building His Church. We count it a great joy to be in what we firmly believe is God’s perfect plan and will for our lives. Our hearts beat to see souls come to Christ, to see lives set-free from the bondage of sin, to see families and marriages healed, restored, and to begin flourishing in their walk with Jesus Christ!
We invite you to come worship and experience God with us!

Jesus Christ is the Way, the Truth, and Life
Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.
Jesus Christ willingly died on a cross and by doing so paid the price for our sins and made eternal salvation available to all who would believe
For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life
Salvation is a Free-Gift that cannot be earned. It is afforded to us by God’s Grace alone, but only must be received through faith
For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord
For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God
Water Baptism was shown by the example of Jesus Christ and is a public demonstration of our faith in Him
I Peter 3:21
and this water symbolizes baptism that now saves you also—not the removal of dirt from the body but the pledge of a clear conscience toward God. It saves you by the resurrection of Jesus Christ
Although Water Baptism is not necessary for Salvation, it is an essential Christian experience that should not be negated
And Jesus said to him, “Assuredly, I say to you, today you will be with Me in Paradise.”
Water Baptism is executed in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit
Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit
HOLY SPIRIT BAPTISM
Holy Spirit Baptism is evidenced by speaking in tongues
And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance
The Baptism of the Holy Spirit is an experience that is different and distinct from salvation or water baptism
for John truly baptized with water, but you shall be baptized with the Holy Spirit not many days from now
2 he said to them, “Did you receive the Holy Spirit when you believed?” So they said to him, “We have not so much as heard whether there is a Holy Spirit.”
3 And he said to them, “Into what then were you baptized?”
So they said, “Into John's baptism.”
4 Then Paul said, “John indeed baptized with a baptism of repentance, saying to the people that they should believe on Him who would come after him, that is, on Christ Jesus.”
5 When they heard this, they were baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus. 6 And when Paul had laid hands on them, the Holy Spirit came upon them, and they spoke with tongues and prophesied.
While the Baptism of the Holy Spirit Baptism involves several benefitting factors, the primary benefit is the empowerment to be a witness
Behold, I send the Promise of My Father upon you; but tarry in the city of Jerusalem until you are endued with power from on high.”
But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witnesses to Me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.”
