Mission

Our mission is to make disciples and to take the land.


Our Name

Normandy is a name we believe the Lord gave to us. In short, Jesus  came to destroy the works of the devil and set captives free to live  in joyful devotion to Him. Likewise, the Normandy invasion was also  about destroying the works of an enemy and setting captives free to live  in peace. The name “Normandy”, by the grace of God, will be a prophetic  reminder to, and mark on, our church to be about Jesus' mission here on  earth, taking the Gospel to our community and proclaiming freedom  through Christ to all. 

Normandy is a name  rooted in history. It  was the site of the of an event so massive  in significance that you  would be hard-pressed, 65 years later, to find  someone who does not know  the story of D-Day, of Normandy, and of World  War II. Europe at the  time was totally oppressed by an enemy. People  were living and dying in  fear and absolute terror. By themselves, they  were utterly helpless.  They needed someone with a power and force so  great to come and deliver  them from their enemy and set them free. Similarly, people all around  us are oppressed by an enemy and in need of freedom and forgiveness. Just like us, they need a Savior. They need someone to bring them the message of the Gospel.

We do not want in any way to romanticize or downplay the realities of   war in an effort to make a point. Paul tells us in Ephesians 6:10-12, "Finally,    be strong in the Lord and in the strength of his might. Put on the   whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the schemes of    the devil. For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against    the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over  this  present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the  heavenly  places." In light of the of the battle everyone  constantly faces  against the devil, and the glorious power  of the  Gospel to deliver each  of us from our enemy, we  believe that God  has called us to be a  church whose name is a symbol of what He wants to  do in our communities:  Show Christ as a savior, comforter, glorious  King and the only means  through which we can truly be free. 

There is a reason why the WWII generation is called The Greatest Generation.   They gave it all. They sacrificially lived and died so that people  they  didn't even know could be free. As a church, we simply want to   courageously play our part and join other churches in our communities    and throughout the city on the greatest mission ever given (Matthew   28:18-20). We want to infuse men and women with a vision to see   our communities transformed by the love of Jesus. We intend to move   forward with His love,  and in a spiritual sense, possess the land   around us and set the captives free (Isaiah 61:1-4). 

Our City

The Stats: If the Dallas-Fort Worth region were a state it would rank 17th in population, its 6.5 million residents would place it ahead of Tennessee and Missouri. Dallas-Fort Worth has a population exceeding that of North and South Dakota, Alaska, Delaware, Vermont, Wyoming, and the District of Columbia combined. From 2007-2008 the region added 400 new residents a day, and that trend is increasing yearly. By 2040, the region is projected to grow by 3,900,000, or 63%.  Another estimation by the Dallas Regional Chamber suggested the population could more than double to as much as 14 million by 2040.

The Need: If the entire DFW population were to miraculously join a church, the average attendance per currently existing church each Sunday would be slightly over 3,000 people.  That is sobering when we consider that only 10% of all U.S. churches have more than 350 members.  Hypothetically, even if all the churches in DFW had 1,000 members, that would still leave a staggering 4.4 million people unchurched.

To give a another perspective that we can hopefully understand, around 17,000 people weekly attend two of the larger churches that we have wonderful connections with.  Not only did that many people move to DFW in the past month and a half, that is only 0.25% of the entire population.

The Call: Some research suggests that the overwhelming majority of people in our city claim Christianity as their faith, but studies show that roughly 20% of people regularly attend a church of any kind.  That means there could be 5 million people in our city in need of the transforming power of the Gospel.  The need is vast.

His calling for us, in this generation, is the same it has always been: be faithful, be intentional, love Him with all of our hearts and lay down our lives out of love for our neighbors.  Our job is to steadfastly imitate Christ over the long-haul and live powerful, authentic lives of worship transforming one community at a time. 

Along with every other church in this city with a desire to honor Jesus and obediently follow him, we intend to encourage the wayward, strengthen the weary, equip new and old believers, training them to be a beacon of love and truth in hopes that our communities would see Jesus, and through our lives, He would graciously and continually seek and save that which is lost. The Church’s mission in this city is far from over.
