Our Vision

We are a vibrant, Christ-centered church where lives are changing and everyone is family.

We not only want Cypress Family to be famous for being all about Jesus, we want the person and work of Jesus to be famous in our city. This fame begins in our own lives, and extends into our homes, workplaces, universities and city.

Jesus’ fame is not like any other.

You can’t add to it; you can’t take from it. He is who He is—the light of the world (John 8:12). Some will receive Jesus, others will sadly reject Him (John 1:11). We want Jesus to be received with repentance, celebration and worship (John 20:28). He is the supreme and sovereign king (Colossians 1).

We believe this vision is biblical, timely, vital and in God’s strength, achievable.

Our Values

Our values, the things we hold dear, are the basis and foundation for Cypress Family Fellowship, our Vision, and our Mission.

The greatest of our values is the Lordship of Christ.  We believe that Jesus is God, He is Lord, and we follow Him in humble obedience.  All other values derive their meaning and relevance from this Truth.

Biblical Authority
We believe that the Bible is God’s Holy Word. All scripture is God-breathed. It reveals truth, exposes our disobedience, and trains us to live God’s way. (2 Timothy 3:16)
Authenticity
Our worship of God, and the lives that we live daily, should reflect our faith, obedience, and love. If not, even great accomplishments are worthless. (1 Corinthians 13:1-4)
Faith
We strive to exhibit faith that is both child-like and audacious. It is simple, trusting, and complete, and it is bold. It allows God to accomplish wonders yet unimagined. (Mark 10:15; Hebrews 11:1, 6, 33-34)
Family
This value is stated in the name of our church. As a church family, we share our joys and our pains, and we encourage one another spiritually, emotionally, physically, and materially. Our desire is that everyone who walks through our doors will feel welcomed and will experience the love of Christ. (Acts 2:44-47)
Discipleship
We are committed to the spiritual growth of our family members, equipping them to follow Christ and to carry the message of Hope to others. (Ephesians 2:10, 4:12; Matthew 28:18-20; Luke 9:23-24; John 8:31-32)
Humility
With Jesus as our example, we seek to serve others selflessly, with the heart of a servant. (John 13:12, 15-16; Philippians 2:3-7)
The Home
Whether a family consists of one person or many, with Christ as the Head, that family is blessed and is a blessing. We are committed to encouraging singles, nurturing marriages, assisting parents in raising godly children, and providing meaningful spiritual teaching for children, youth, and adults. (Genesis 2:24; Deuteronomy 6:7-9; Hebrews 13:4; Proverbs 22:6)
