Movement | DFW is not just a single day but a movement. It is a not-for-profit ministry focused on training Christians to impact the city by challenging, inspiring, and being a catalyst for the advancement of the gospel.

What is a gospel movement? 

When the unity of the Church becomes so evident that it attracts people to the Gospel

John 3:16 – For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.

Our Mission

Connecting Christians for strategic collaboration towards the Spiritual and Social flourishing of the next generation in DFW

Our Vision

Together accelerating a Gospel Movement in DFW

What We Believe

  • We believe the Bible to be the inspired, infallible, and authoritative Word of God.
  • We believe that there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
  • We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood.
  • We believe in the soul-saving power of His bodily resurrection and His ascension to the right hand of the Father. And we believe in His inevitable return in power and glory.
  • We believe that for the salvation of lost and sinful people, regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential. The express mandate of the church is to fulfill the Great Commission.
  • We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit, indwelling, and enabling Christ’s followers to live godly lives.
  • We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost – that they are saved unto the resurrection of life and that they are lost unto the resurrection of damnation.
  • We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ.
