Connections Church is a non-denominational multicultural church that values developing healthy relationships in family, church, and in the community. We accomplish this by relying on the transforming power of God to change our lives and by applying Biblical wisdom to our daily lives.
Our worship style is casual and contemporary. Connections Church is a community of friendship and faith, with people from just about every background. People young and old, single and families, newcomers, and old timers have all found Connextions to be their place to believe and belong. Services on Sundays are a time of excitement and celebration as our worship team leads in uplifting songs. The message you receive will help you understand God’s word in a practical and relevant way to live your life.
What Should I Wear?
Don’t be worried about wearing the right thing. At Connections, we invite you to come as you are and be ready to enjoy our service.
Founding Pastors Johnny and Karen Green and Family moved to Cypress, Texas in 2004. The first service was held in April 2004, with 34 people in attendance. At that time, there was not a church building, property or any assets. There was only a dream that God would provide a place where people could gather to worship Christ, be discipled, and raise their families in a Godly environment.

The church is to serve people just as Jesus served people.
The Bible tells us that the church is the body of Christ in the world today. The New Testament tells us the church is the local body of believers. The head of the church is Jesus Christ. The biblical purposes of the church are: Worship, Evangelism, Fellowship, Discipleship, and Ministry to others.
Jesus is coming again.
Isaiah 2:4, Matthew 16:27, Mark 8:38, Luke 12:40, 48; John 14:1-3, Acts 1:11, Philippians 3:20, 21; 1 Thessalonians 4:14-18, Hebrews 9:27-28, Revelation 1:18, 3:11, 20:1-22
We exist to reach the lost with the good news of Jesus Christ; create an environment for spiritual growth; build strong families; love everyone.
To have successful people thriving in a successful church, we believe that there are five priorities or purposes that must be in place.
- Worship — “Love God with all your heart”
- Ministry — “Love your neighbor as yourself”
- Evangelism — “Go .. . make disciples”
- Fellowship — “Baptizing them”
- Discipleship — “Teaching them to do”
Jesus’ ministry modeled these five priorities. John 17:1-26 speaks of Worship, Ministry, Evangelism, Fellowship, and Discipleship. Seeing that Jesus modeled these, the church must fulfill these five purposes.
