Our Mission

Our mission is to lead the people of the Bay Area to reach their full potential in Christ.

Our Strategy

We encourage all believers to Belong, Prepare, and Serve (BPS).


Characterized by Unity; A Place where People can find Community

  • Share life together through faith in Christ, worship, and small group participation
  • Care for one another through major milestones and transitions
  • Reach our Community by actively sharing our God stories and inviting others


To help individuals grow in spiritual maturity and become more like Christ

  • Live the Christian life, including marital health, parenting, financial responsibility, grief support, and addiction support
  • Know God’s Word, theology, and history of the Christian church
  • Serve by understanding God’s calling, unique spiritual gifts, and service opportunities
  • Grow through Spiritual Disciplines


We try to help every member find their “calling” to work together to make the Kingdom of God a present reality wherever we are.

  • In the Church by assisting in Worship, WBS Classes, or some other ministry
  • In the Community by caring for those in need & sharing Christ in our neighborhoods
  • Outside of Houston by assisting in places where God has provided open doors for UBC-ers to engage in ministry
Biblical Model

(Based on Acts 1-12)

  • Holy Spirit empowers the work of the church (2:1-4)
  • Followers of Jesus declared the Gospel to others (2:14-26; 3:11-26; 7:1-53)
  • The church shared with and took care of one another (4:32-37; 6:1-6)
  • The church cared for the needs of others (3:1-10; 9:32-43)
  • Obstacles to the church’s work were constant but didn’t slow down her work (4:1-12; 5:1-11, 17-32; 7:54-8:3; 12:1-19)
  • Salvation was received by many and the church expanded in influence (2:37-42; 8:12, 34-38; 9:1-19; 10:34-43; 11:19-30)
