Zoe (ζωη) is the New Testament Greek word for life. At Zoe Community Church the Bible is central to all that we do. Our desire is to know God’s Word and experience true life by believing God’s Word (the Bible), living it out,  and sharing it with others.

beliefs and values

Gospel
We believe that the good news of Jesus Christ is central in the life of every believer and believing community (1 Cor 15:1-4)

What is the the good news of Jesus?

Worship
We believe that we are created to worship, and to find joy and satisfaction in Christ. As Christians, all we do should be done to the glory of God and the praise of his Name (Col 3:17; 1 Cor 10:31)

Community
We believe in the priority of the church, the community of believers, and our God-given responsibility to one another (Col 3:12-14; Heb 10:24-25)

Scripture
We believe that the Bible is the Word of God and that it alone is our foundation for faith and practice. Therefore we are committed to expository preaching and biblical counseling (2 Pet 1:20-21; 2 Tim 3:16-17)

 Prayer
We believe that God hears and answers prayer and that apart from him we can do nothing (Psalm 27:8; 1 Thess 5:16-18)

Mission
We believe that God has called us to be lights in the world pointing others to Jesus Christ (Matt 28:18-20; Rom 1:16)

Story

Zoe Community Church is a non-denominational church plant of Lighthouse Community Church in Torrance, CA.  We started in 2016, focusing on the cities of North Dallas and Collin County such as Plano, Allen, McKinney, and Frisco. 

The Dallas Metroplex, and North DFW in particular, is growing fast. Various companies and other factors will bring many newcomers to the area in the coming years, and naturally there will be many who come to Dallas and do not know Jesus. We saw an opportunity to be here, to welcome transplants and to show them the love and hospitality of Christ and share the message of the gospel. We also saw an opportunity to provide a home for those who might be looking for a new church family.

We hope to be a church that shares the message of salvation through faith in Jesus Christ with our friends and neighbors. We also want to explore from the Bible how this gospel message has the power to change how we live. We believe that church should be a community that is committed to following Jesus, and committed to one another.
