What We Believe

Written by man under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit without error or mistake (John. 14:26; 2 Timothy 3:15-17).
Creator of the Universe (Genesis 1:1). One, existing as the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit (John 10:30; Titus 3:4-6).
All humanity has sinned - willfully rebelling against God (Romans 3:10, 23).
The Grace of God saves humanity from its sinful condition through faith in the atoning blood of Jesus Christ (Romans 3:23-26). Throughout eternity, we will either exist separated from God in Hell due to our sinful rebellion, or in union with God in Heaven due to the forgiveness and salvation that accompany faith in Jesus Christ (Matthew 13:40-43; Revelation 21:3-5).
Founded on the day of Pentecost, consisting of all Christians everywhere (Acts 2:1-47; Ephesians 4:4-6).
Church Practices
Baptism: Believers mark their faith in Jesus by being immersed in water as taught and exemplified in the Bible. (Matthew 28:19-20; Acts 2:38).
Communion: Taken each week in remembrance of the body and blood of Jesus Christ (Acts 20:7; 1 Corinthians 11:23-28).
Church Leadership
A board of elders oversee all the affairs of the church (1 Timothy 3:1-7).

Multisite Teaching Method

Under the leadership of our Lead Pastor, Drew Sherman, our Campus Pastors bring their own unique communication style while teaching through the same message series, big idea, and next steps at all campuses. Our heart behind the live teaching method at each location is to provide leaders an opportunity to grow and develop in their gift of preaching and teaching.

We predominantly do live teaching, but you will experience a video message from time to time. Pastor Drew is the primary communicator at Compass Colleyville

What is Baptism?

Baptism is a faith event where believers decide to turn from their sin and follow Jesus Christ.

Frequently Asked Questions: Baptism

A simple reason why Christians should be baptized is because it follows the example that Jesus set for us when he himself was baptized (Mark 1:9-11). Jesus also instructed his followers to "go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit (Matthew 28:19).
Baptism is the picture of forgiveness and new life. The water represents how faith in Jesus cleanses believers of their sin. Also, when you go down into the water and then resurface, you are publically expressing your belief in Jesus' death, burial, and resurrection as well as your own spiritual rebirth.
We baptize by immersion because we want to be a church that does biblical things in biblical ways. In the language that the Bible was originally written in, the word for “baptize” literally means “to dip" or "immerse”, and baptisms in the Bible were done by immersion (i.e. Acts 8:38–39). Also, immersion best symbolizes a burial and resurrection. (Colossians 2:12).
Here at Compass we love to see children making decisions for Christ and confessing their faith through baptism! Take a look at this document we've put together to determine if your child is ready for baptism.
Infants and newborns are precious and innocent, and do not have the need (nor the ability) to repent and turn from their sin. That's why we wait until a child has the need and ability to repent and follow Jesus before we baptize them. If you have not experienced believer's baptism, even though you may have experienced baptism as an infant, we strongly encourage you to be "re-baptized" as a repentant believer.
The Bible teaches that baptism accompanies the decision to follow Jesus, so as soon as you believe that Jesus is your savior, you should be baptized (Acts 8:12).
