Woven Church began in the summer of 2014, when 30 adults and 20 children launched out of an ethnic community to establish a cross-cultural and multiethnic expression of faith that would share the Gospel Story and the love of Christ with the increasingly diverse demographics of Houston. Meeting in Pastor Wayne & Ashley's home that first summer, they learned to break bread together, trust each other, cry together, grow together, and experience the miraculous together.
Today, Woven is a growing church finding our influence in this city we love. We are an increasingly diverse community now, with people from all walks of life, cultures, ethnicities, and backgrounds, truly growing to become a reflection of the changing city around us, and we intend to continue going deeper into our mission of desegregating Sunday and sanctifying Monday to Friday.
We invite you to be part of this story which is part of the greater Story...
OUR VISION AND MISSION
Woven Church exists...
To be a diverse church community
for the greater Houston metro area
that is desegregating Sunday
and sanctifying Monday to Friday
through insightful teaching,
and holistic outreach.
We are a member congregation of the Evangelical Covenant Church (ECC). When new members join a Covenant church such as Woven, they are asked two questions about belief: “Do you confess Jesus Christ as your Savior and promise to follow him as Lord?” and “Do you accept the Holy Scriptures, the Old and New Testaments, as the word of God and the only perfect rule for faith, doctrine, and conduct?” They are then asked if they intend to live as faithful followers of Christ and members of the church and denomination.
That’s all. That is enough.
But on another level, of course, the answer is a good deal more complex. While the Covenant Church does not require adherence to any written creed, we take our theology very seriously, and our history as well. We are a Reformation church, a part of the Church universal, and an evangelical church. In that heritage, we share certain central beliefs, which draw us together in faith and fellowship and make possible a freedom among us on more widely ranging issues.
We describe those central beliefs as “affirmations.” We hope that as you read these affirmations you will find yourself identifying with them in your own faith experience:
We affirm the centrality of the word of God.
We affirm the necessity of the new birth.
We affirm a commitment to the whole mission of the church.
We affirm the church as a fellowship of believers.
We affirm a conscious dependence on the Holy Spirit.
We affirm the reality of freedom in Christ.
