About Christ Church

A Home for All

Christ Church Sugar Land has served the greater Sugar Land area as a beacon of hope and healing since its formation in 1983. Nestled in the heart of First Colony with a vision of knowing God and making His love known to others, Christ Church continues to faithfully proclaim the good news of Jesus Christ through its local and global missions, small group ministries for every age-level, and engaging worship opportunities. We are guided by the words of Jeremiah 29.7 to “seek the peace and prosperity of the city to which I have carried you.”

As a part of The United Methodist Church, Christ Church Sugar Land stands in the broad tradition of the Christian faith, founded in the bedrock belief that Jesus Christ is Lord and that He lives yet today, calling all to follow Him as the Sovereign of their lives.  We believe that He invites us into a personal relationship in which salvation comes wholly through the grace of God.

With those of other communions, we confess our belief as well in the triune God consisting of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.  And we believe in the Bible as the Word of God by which our lives are to be both informed and measured, expressed in the sentiment of the founder of Methodism, John Wesley, that we are called to be “people of the one Book.”

We affirm that our God-given task in the world is to be about sharing the good news of God’s grace.  The commitment that we thus ask of each of our members is to take seriously this responsibility, by not only growing in their own knowledge and love of God, but by supporting the church with their prayers, their presence, their gifts, their service, and their witness.

Interested in becoming a member of the Christ Church family?

You are welcome to come forward at the close of any of our services to speak with a pastor who will either present you to the congregation at that time, or schedule a meeting to discuss the meaning of membership and baptism, should they be new to you. You may also simply check on the attendance pad that you would like to receive a call and one of our staff will contact you on the following week.
