There is an enormous passion for Jesus at WoodsEdge. In fact, loving Jesus is at the center of what we do. We aim to love Jesus as he has never been loved before. We feel so overwhelmingly loved by God that we want to love him back and pursue him with everything we’ve got:
The people of WoodsEdge – children, teens, and adults – live in the unfettered freedom of a love relationship with Jesus.
At WoodsEdge we believe there is something contagious about living in a genuine community, where we accept one another in spite of our flaws. This is how we love one another. We call this journeying together.
No one has their act together, and we do not pretend we are perfect as we band together in groups to share life. We know that life is better together, and it is rare for a WoodsEdger not to belong to a Community Group.
Life is richer because we journey together, serving and being served, loving and being loved, knowing and being known. We aim to create nothing less than a community filled with love, acceptance, and forgiveness.
Our hope is that every person who attends WoodsEdge would live in life-transforming community in a Community Group.
WoodsEdge exists not only for those inside the church but also for those outside the church. We know that Jesus cares about lost and hurting people, and we care about them too. We do everything we can to bring the love and grace of Jesus to people – people across the street and people around the world.
In our community, WoodsEdge is known for the thousands of people who reach out to people in need and families in crisis. Many who want to change their world join us in these efforts and receive Christ in the process.
We are vitally engaged in the city of Houston (in fact, we long to see it become a city of God) and in other countries where God has called us.
We reach out to people with good news and good deeds, justice, and compassion. We prioritize the Great Commission of Jesus, making disciples who make disciples, by leading people to Christ, and helping them grow in Christ.
When we say that our vision is, this is what we mean:
Houston. We love our city. We love the people that God has placed here for such a time as this. Our prayer is that the Spirit of God would be poured out all across this city of ours and that in our lifetime Houston would be known as a great city of God.
