A Safe Place for ALL to Experience the Divine
NEWS OF THE KINGDOM
As a body still in its teenage years, we, like all teenagers, are in the process of defining ourselves. There are days we get this right; other days, we struggle. We celebrate both, but celebrate the struggle a bit more, as the lessons learned from the struggles have reminded us of who and Whose we are.
Central to our identity is a desire to provide a safe place for all to experience the Divine. We recognize this to be vital, as safe places seem increasingly rare in today’s time. As a body, we are unashamedly Christian. We believe our Christian identity calls us build bridges, not walls. Thus, our nature is to welcome all people, regardless of tribe. We do so believing that, in being together, freely ourselves, we all will experience something of the Divine.
There are practices that are distinct to all bodies; Faithbridge is no exception. Our practices are centered in a particular definition of a family, as we, for many, have become “family by choice.” As a family, we to do five things together: worship, serve, study, eat, and play together.
Words cannot fully describe a body’s identity. Our hope is that these would serve as a vehicle that invites people to experience more. Please join us – we’d love to share the Journey with you!
"We are a family. We care for each other. But we are also a church that is mission-driven. We don't just talk, we act."

REV. DR. CHRIS CARSON (E-mail)
Chris came to Texas from the Southeastern U.S. It was there that he met his wife, Becky, and that their three children, Katelyn, Mac, and Cleigh were born.
Growing up in the Southeast taught him a great deal about the importance of grace and hospitality. These elements are central to the Body of Christ and to life at Faithbridge. His rearing also taught him the importance of forgiveness, and, as importantly, instills in him great hope for the future.
Faithbridge Presbyterian Preschool provides a friendly, loving Christian atmosphere for children ages 18 months through
Pre-K to prepare for formal education. Our mission is for each child to grow spiritually, emotionally, socially, and physically as parents, children, school staff, and church members work together to establish a rich learning environment.
"The people of Faithbridge are open and engaging, eager to share and experience grace. To a person, they are committed to growing together in faith and love and to caring for our neighbors. My hope is that all people would have the privilege of knowing them as I do."
"Faithbridge is truly a community of faith. There are places for everyone here. We are open and welcoming to all."
