Our Story

New and On A Mission

Charis City was founded with a simple mission: Reach Katy, TX for Jesus.  We believe that grace changes everything, and we want to change our city by showing grace and truth, one person at a time.

What’s In A Name?

Why we chose Charis City

Charis is the first word in our name, and it is the Greek word for grace. Simply put, grace is the undeserved, unmerited favor we receive from God. The sad reality is we all fall short of God’s call to be perfect. In the ultimate display of grace, God became human in the person of Jesus Christ. He was the only one in all of history to be perfectly full of grace and truth. His death on the cross was sufficient to fully forgive all of our sin and end its power over us. His resurrection proved that He, alone, was able to conquer death. Grace saves us. Grace changes us. Grace changes everything!

The second part of our name is “City” because we believe that God’s grace shown through His church can change our city. At Charis City, we want to pattern our lives, and our church, around the example that Jesus set for us. We want to be a church that shows intentional grace by generously and sacrificially serving others in Jesus’ name. We want to show this love and grace to our neighbors, our coworkers, and even complete strangers. Through this demonstration of grace, we earn the right to share God’s perfect plan for their lives.
