What We Believe

Inviting all people to experience true fulfillment in Jesus Christ, one home at a time.

Kingsland Baptist Church is a Biblical community of believers doing life together.

Our mission is to invite all people to experience true fulfillment in Jesus Christ, one home at a time! The Mission of Kingsland is taken directly from God's Word, the Bible, using three critical passages:

The Great Commandment Matthew 22:37-39
"You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the great and first commandment. And the second is like it: You shall love your neighbor as yourself."

The Great Commission Matthew 28: 19-20
"Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you."

The Sh'ma Deuteronomy 6:4-9
"Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is One. You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and all your soul and with all your might. And these words that I command you today shall be on your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise. You shall bind them as a sign on your hand, and they shall be as frontlets between your eyes. You shall write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates."

 

Our Vision

We are a church that God graciously birthed in 1977 in the middle of a neighborhood named Nottingham Country and on a street named Kingsland. The King's Land. In light of this, Kingsland's Quest is the same as God's quest for humanity. A quest being an adventurous journey or pursuit as by a knight in a medieval romance. We are now participants in the grandest love story ever told. Our Creator pursues us, His created ones, in order to have a relationship with us. That relationship begins and continues with the One who pursued us all the way to the Cross, Jesus Christ.

We see a church that understands that Katy is only as strong as its individual families and the individuals who live in them. Since marriage was the first institution that God created it is therefore holy and paramount in its strength and survival. We see a church that is proactive in equipping and in caring for it. A place where marriages are built on covenant before God and each other. We see a church investing into men to love their families as servant leaders. A place where men and women are equipped to nurture their children as treasures sent into the next generation to carry the light of the gospel. A church full of parents who see themselves as their children's primary faith trainers.

Believing that God's heart beats for the orphan we will be a church that embraces and celebrates the adoption of children who need a 'forever family'. A place that allows the heart of God to influence and define it rather than the culture around it. A church where children, students, singles, single parents, young marrieds to empty-nesters, blended families, widows and widowers all have a place at the table. A table that forgets all those labels except for that of brothers and sisters. A church that is truly a family of God. A family whose loving Father cannot be ignored any longer in the community around it.

We see a church that welcomes all people. A place where the hurting and the hopeless as well as the healthy and the whole can grow under the love of Christ. A place where we recognize that we're all pilgrims on this journey called life. A church where the Savior makes us a family. A place where every soul senses the love of their pursuer the moment they step foot on this campus.

We see a church that loves God with all it's heart, soul, and mind. A church that worships not only in song and scripture but also with their very lives. It's our dream to see the Lord fully develop this campus on Kingsland Boulevard. Maximizing every square inch as good stewards of this land to reach Katy and West Houston. We see a campus that will enable us to worship together by the thousands and yet ample, creative, and thematic space for our preschool, children, students, and adults to do life together in small group Bible study as well. We see the fulfillment of Isaiah's prophecy and Christ himself..."my house will be called a house of prayer for all nations."

We see a church that loves people through ministry. Helping people discover their God-given personality, passions, and spiritual gifts so that they can participate and not spectate. And by this discovery unleashing the church family to joyfully minister inside and outside the church. A place where the Pastoral team equips the church to do the work of the ministry (Ephesians 4:11-12). A church that meets the needs of the community — physically, spiritually, and emotionally.

We see a church that loves people through relational evangelism and missions. A place where members are encouraged to first connect with those nearest and dearest and then their neighbors and finally the nations. As a church that participates in the Great Commission we will continue to birth daughter churches as quickly as the Lord provides the people and resources. We see a church where all our members are challenged to participate annually in a short-term mission project here in Katy and West Houston, the state of Texas, or around the world. We also see a church sending as well as supporting career missionaries and Christian workers around the world A church that aggressively expands its Recreation Ministry for the purpose of using sports to build relationships with the community.

We see a church that loves people through fellowship. A family that refuses to settle for inch deep relationships but rather one that leads people to discover the joy and strength that comes from deep, intimate friendships. We see small groups experiencing biblical community. A place that encourages people to find balance and simplicity in their schedules and lifestyles to make that kind of intimacy and transparency possible.

We see a church that helps people grow spiritually. We are called to mature spiritually on the journey of life and we call that process discipleship. We must and we will grow smaller as we grow larger. We see a place where thousands of adults are discipled on and off campus in Adult Bible Fellowships. We also see Kingsland hosting conferences and retreats that will equip Christians in this region.

It's our desire to reach Katy for Christ one home at a time.

"Now to Him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever!" (Ephesians 3:20-21)

Our Beliefs

Kingsland is committed to aligning with God's Truth, the Bible. The Bible is God's revelation of Himself to every person. It is a true, holy collection of books explaining God's character, love and work of creation, justice, redemption, and future return. Kingsland is committed to teaching and living God's Word in individual lives and as a community of Christ-followers. Our beliefs parallel Southern Baptist beliefs which can be found in The Baptist Faith and Message, June 14, 2000.
