Ancient meets modern in this experiential worship experience.

Traditional Worship*

Sundays 8:15 and 10:50 am - Cobbs Campus Sanctuary

Visually rich pageantry and liturgies of the ancient church are wedded with vibrant music, excellently presented by our sanctuary choir and orchestra. Honoring our rich history as the oldest church in Waco, our traditional services include Bible-based sermons by Lead Pastor Ryan Barnett, the Lord's Prayer, and the Apostles' Creed. Connect with the deep and ancient mysteries of God in these powerful times fo worship. You belong here.

Dynamic and powerful contemporary worship is led by our worship band, while a Bible-based sermon is taught by Lead Pastor Ryan Barnett. People of all ages gather during this hour of worship and prayer for a multigenerational experience of community. With a special time for children and popular Christian music, this service offers a home for people of all ages. There is no doubt, you belong here.

Hip Hop Worship*

Led by Pastor G (Rev. Gabe Dominguez), this worship experience is unlike any other in the city.
