Church Planting

Start Something New

“All the peoples”

Jesus sent His followers to reach all the peoples of the world. Now, He is actively bringing them to our cities!  At least 271 different languages are spoken in Dallas County homes. Even among English-speakers there are many distinct cultural groups. Every person in Dallas and Rockwall Counties ought to have a church that that “speaks their language.” Our churches, therefore, are working to plant churches among every language and culture represented in our mission field. The people of the Dallas Baptist Association are praying daily that the Spirit will bring people to join this exciting venture.
