Who We Are

The Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) has deep roots in Texas- particularly in the fertile farm and ranchland along the historic Trinity and Brazos Rivers. The Trinity Brazos Area today includes more than 50 congregations, north, from Wichita Falls and, south, to Cameron. We are blessed to share ministry with each other! We know that when our time and talents come together to serve our neighbors, the church gives glory to God. 

We are Disciples of Christ, a movement for wholeness in a fragmented world. As a part of the one body of Christ, we welcome all to the Lord's Table as God has welcomed us.
