PUTTING DOWN ROOTS
We want to see more lives restored with the gospel for God's glory in the Argyle area, so we're putting down roots. We have signed a lease on 9,000 square feet in Argyle and we are so excited to get the space built out and ready. We are calling this new phase of life "Putting Down Roots". While we are focused on funding and outfitting the space, Putting Down Roots is not just about real estate. It is about investing in the movement of what God is doing in the Argyle area.
WHO WE ARE – MISSION & DNA
TDC’s mission is to see lives restored with the gospel for God’s glory. We are sold out for this mission. We want people to meet and grow in Christ, and we are zealously committed to being Christ-centered in everything we do.
Our ministry DNA is comprised of three elements:
We are Gospel Centered. We preach Christ and seek to glorify Him in everything we do. Changed hearts lead to changed lives.
We are Community Driven. We are committed to maturing in the faith together, bearing one another’s burdens, and holding one another accountable in loving discipleship relationships with the ultimate hope of becoming more like Jesus.
We are Other People Focused. As followers of Jesus Christ, we are to model his generous and outwardly-focused disposition toward others — and thus as a church we will seek to be the hands and feet of Christ by serving our neighborhoods, schools, and town.
TDC'S BURDEN FOR ARGYLE AREA
We feel called to minister to this community. For the past several years, it seems clear the Lord has led TDC to plant a campus in Argyle. Several key TDC families in Argyle were praying for a campus, and at the same time the elders of TDC were considering and praying through what God has for the church with regard to multiplication. One of the unique convictions of TDC is to convert the converted; that is, to boldly preach Christ to cultural and comfortable Christians. Argyle contains many such people. In addition, the Argyle area is exploding with growth and we want as many people as possible to come to know Jesus. In short, we believe the Lord has called us here.
HOW DID WE GET HERE?
Jesus promised to build his church, the gates of hell won’t stand against it — and this is exactly what He has done with TDC.

WHY A NEW SPACE?
Gatherings at FBC Argyle have been sweet and Spirit-filled, and we are so grateful to have a place to meet. With that being said, it is time to make a move to secure a dedicated space for TDC Argyle to gather and grow. Here’s why:
Sunday mornings are the best time to meet.
We want to solidify a more permanent location to see the gospel of Jesus Christ advance in word and deed.
A fixed location will provide space for men’s ministry, women’s ministry, and TDC Students.
A new space would accommodate future growth of TDC Argyle, including multiple gatherings on Sunday morning.
