The story of The Door Church is the story of God’s providence. God planted the idea in Lead Pastor Scott Brooks to plant a church that would be an open door to the Gospel for the people of Coppell and beyond. With this vision, we met for our first weekend service on January 1st, 2011. Our mission has remained clear from the beginning: be a part of God’s restoration process as the Gospel changes lives for God’s glory.
We preach one message every week at The Door Church: We are in need of Jesus. Because Jesus lived a perfect life, died, and was resurrected, we have freedom from the guilt of sin and have been offered a new life in Christ. When we look to Scripture – God’s living word – and behold the truths it contains, our lives begin to change. At The Door Church, we never stray from what the Scripture says and recognize that the center-point of Scripture is Jesus.
The pillar ministry of The Door Church is Groups. This is because we believe in the power of a real, sharpening, life-giving community. Jesus is our common denominator, and because of that, every person can be welcomed into our community with open arms. We recognize that intentional community is a vital part of growing as a disciple. God’s design is for us to pursue discipleship in Christ through Scripture and encourage others to do the same.
OTHER PEOPLE FOCUSED
God sent Jesus into the world to do the work of reconciliation. Jesus tells us, “As my Father sent me, so I sent you.” When we truly grasp the Gospel, we take on the mission of bringing the message of reconciliation to our homes, neighborhoods and workplaces. Being others-focused means living in a way that shows the selfless and sacrificial love that Jesus demonstrated to us.
The Door Church is led by a group of equal elders who, in submission to Scripture, oversee the mission and vision of everything we do. Our ministry leaders operate under the leadership of the elders to carry out this mission and vision on a day-to-day basis.
