Faithbridge WorshipMeet Faithbridge:

Faithbridge is a community church located in the heart of Northwest Houston, serving individuals and families in the Spring-Klein, Tomball, Cypress, and The Woodlands areas. We are focused on a central theme of worship plus two where spiritual life is enriched through active participation in worship, serving, and growth in small groups. We have vibrant ministries for adults, kids, and students inside the church and on mission in our community and abroad.

Mission, Vision & Values


At Faithbridge, we exist to make more and stronger disciples of Jesus Christ who make more and stronger disciples of Jesus Christ. We are a vibrant church helping families grow in their faith in Christ and serving in practical ways within the church and throughout the community. More and more people, across all generations, are coming to worship, growing closer to God, and joining in fellowship with each other through small and large group Bible studies and real life application classes.


Our vision is to be a bridge of faith to people every day.

We envision a church that shines brightly with the transforming light of Jesus Christ into a world of darkness, where non-churched, once churched, and badly churched people of Northwest Houston find their souls resurrected to abundant life in Christ. We dream of a church where people experience powerful worship services that bring them closer to God. We see a church that raises up children, youth, and adults into growing disciples who meet in authentic small groups throughout the community for encouraging fellowship and who, in turn, mentor and develop new generations of fully devoted followers of Christ. We dream of a church where all people use the gifts and talents God has given them, in order that the entire church may function as a whole body of Christ. We envision a church where those who have preaching gifts do the preaching, and where those having teaching gifts do the teaching. Where those with shepherding gifts do the shepherding, and where those with hospitality gifts warm things up. Where those with compassion and mercy gifts offer compassion and mercy; where administrators administrate, leaders lead, and where all the other spiritual gifts mentioned in Romans 12, 1 Corinthians 12, Ephesians 4, and 1 Peter 4 are utilized effectively. We dream of a church that refuses to be ingrown or self-focused but instead channels its redemptive power into the world through compassionate acts of service—showing God’s love to others by its involvement with local, national, and world missions, as well as planting new churches. We envision a church so full of love and amazed by grace that people cannot constrain themselves from sharing generously of their resources and material possessions with those in need. We dream of a church that stands firmly on the foundation of God’s Word as contained in the Bible, depends on prayer and fasting as its source of power, and looks to the Holy Spirit as central to all its activity—filling, guiding, and empowering our lives.

Faithbridge ServingWhat it's Like to Live in Spring, TX: 

Spring, TX is a suburb north of Houston, TX, and is tucked between the big city skylines of Houston and the vast farmland and countryside of Huntsville and beyond towards Dallas. It is a historical city, beginning as a trading post at Spring Creek in the mid 1800’s with a couple hundred residents. Many German immigrants came to the area and used the abundant land as profitable farmland. Today, Spring-Klein is home to about 60,000 residents and is a popular area for young families to move to because of its proximity to excellent school systems, higher educational opportunities and short commute to nearby headquarters of major oil and gas, IT, medical and engineering companies in the Woodlands and Houston proper. 

Houston is the 4th largest city in the United States and the largest city in Texas. It is home to the Texas Medical Center, the world’s largest concentration of healthcare, research institutions, and NASA’s Johnson Space Center where Mission Control is located. 

Residents of this area love this area for its entertainment, shopping opportunities, culture, dining, and proximity to the city. It is the best of both worlds – at just under 40 minutes drive into the city of Houston, it is a quieter reprieve from the hustle and bustle of Houston but still offers the quality of life that Houston is known for.
