The churches of Tarrant County, Texas are a diverse and vibrant community. From Freedom Church to City Life Church, The House Fort Worth to Gateway Church North Fort Worth Campus, Center Point Church to Southside City Church, and Park Temple Baptist Church, there is something for everyone. The Meadowridge Community Baptist Church is taking a special interest in counseling seminary students to lead multi-ethnic and multicultural churches. This is in stark contrast to the church that refused to welcome its new neighbors a few years ago.
Now, it is made up of a small group of people who meet on Sundays until the last one dies and someone turns off the lights and closes the door. This is a wasted opportunity for the community. The Tarrant Baptist Association holds an annual meeting to discuss the importance of this particular church. It is larger than 48 other religious groups in Tarrant County, including Episcopal, Presbyterian and Lutheran.
Although these percentage figures are higher than the 56.0 percent figure compiled by the reporting churches, even so, the percentage would be lower than 67.1 percent twenty years ago and 61.7 percent in 2000, indicating a shift away from religious affiliation in Texas. Union Gospel Mission of Tarrant County is a united Christian organization and ministry dedicated to providing love, hope, respect and a fresh start to the homeless in Tarrant County. Pastor Brad Martin of Shady Oaks Baptist Church in Hurst asked a few months ago about the possibility of starting a second congregation at his facility. They also provide growth and development tools for pastors to create personal applications that strengthen them in the most vital areas for leading healthy and growing churches.
As can be seen in the graphic above, many of the larger churches have a smaller share of the population than they did in 2000.
