A Home for All
Our Mission Statement
The mission of Christ Church Sugar Land is to seek the peace and prosperity of the city where God has placed us (Jeremiah 29:7) This is lived out in a wide variety of mission and community programs, all done in love of God and our neighbors.
Our History and Beliefs
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.
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.
