Listen or Read "Costly Grace" by Dietrich Bonhoeffer

Follow this link to hear Pastor Scott present the first chapter of Bonhoeffer's book The Cost of Discipleship entitled "Costly Grace," and download a text file of the document to follow along.

"This chapter--if not the entire book--ought to be required reading by every Christian," according to Pastor Scott.


What It Means to be Human

What does it mean to be human? Are we an accident of nature? Are we nothing more than animals? The Bible teaches that humans were created in the image and likeness of God. What does this mean? How do we function? This series of sermons on Sunday mornings examines what makes us unique and how we function.

Beating the Blahs

Winter often brings depression, even for Christians. Sometimes the cause is physical, sometimes it is emotional, sometimes it is spiritual. We will consider the various causes and what we can do about it in our evening services, beginning January 21. 

You can watch, read, or listen to all of our messages by clicking on "This Week's Sermon" in the left column.

Texas Christian Church is an active member of the Clinton Area Ministerial Association. This collection of churches works together to meet the needs of De Witt County in the name of Christ.
