Great Commandment

37Jesus replied: " 'Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.'[a] 38This is the first and greatest commandment. 39And the second is like it: 'Love your neighbor as yourself.'[b] 40All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments." (Matt. 22:37-40)

Great Commission

Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in[a] the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age." (Matt. 28:19-20)

Vision 2010

Outreach & Missions

Continue mega-events, Arts, and seek to reach out beyond Gloria Dei with various ministries


Fully utilize existing space and facilities, Community church-going needs are expected to exceed the projected capabilities at the Nassau Bay location by the 2010 timeframe. Therefore a team should be formed in 2003 to proactively explore the acquisition of land south of FM518 for the purpose of expanding the mission of Gloria Dei. The site choice should be guided by population growth forecasts and demographic information and specific use(s) of the site determined at a later date.


Maintain diversity of styles and add services as necessary.
