starting churches that reflect the cultural and language diversity of our cities

Church Planting

“All the peoples”

Jesus sent His followers to reach all the peoples of the world

With at least 271 different languages spoken in Dallas County, He is actively bringing them to our cities!  Our churches are working to plant congregations of all sizes among every languages and every kind of person. Dallas Baptist Association is praying daily that the Spirit will bring people to join us on this exciting venture.
