A LEGACY OF PRAYER & WORSHIP
For over 25 years, Katy pastors have not let denominational and cultural differences keep them from gathering together every week to pray for one another, each other's churches, and the community. Together, we are The Katy Church.
Similarly, the Body of Christ in Katy has been gathering for National Day of Prayer to pray for our nation and our city. In 2011, we combined the National Day of Prayer gathering with another prayer and worship gathering called Fire on the Altar. This kicked off a tradition of 50 hours of non-stop prayer with worship lead by different churches in the community. Thus National Day of Prayer became, National Day of Prayer Ignites Fire on the Altar. Global Day of Prayer is included in our city-wide mandate, and these traditions continue on today.
As the body of Christ, to see every person in every people group in our city have the opportunity to hear and respond to the good news of Jesus Christ and become a part of a local church and to see the spiritual climate over our city changed through prayer.
Our mission is to exalt the Lord Jesus Christ by praying and serving together to shepherd our city.

OUR STATEMENT OF FAITH
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, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in His personal return to power and glory.
We believe that, for the salvation of the lost and sinful man, regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely necessary.
We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit, by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life.
We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost; they that are saved unto the resurrection of life and they that are lost unto the resurrection of damnation.
We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in Christ.
