The DFW Metroplex is one the fastest growing regions in the country, with a population approaching seven million people. Our own city, Wylie, is one of the fastest growing in the State of Texas, and Collin county is also a fast-growing and developing area.
If you are considering moving into this area, please consider this advice:
- Find a church before you move. You may believe that there simply has to be a good, Independent, Fundamental Baptist Church somewhere close to where you would like to live, but it simply is not the case. I have talked to many, many Christians who made the mistake of buying a house first and then looked for a church. I assure you that it is easier to find a house than it is to find a solid church in certain parts of the Metroplex.
- If you know where you are moving, send me an email and I will recommend churches that may be close to you.
The Dallas / Fort Worth area was once the “buckle on the Bible belt,” and there are still some strong churches in the area. However, many have turned to a liberal, contemporary position. Some areas have never had a solid, Bible-believing church.
Serious Christians must have a solid church home in which to grow and serve. Please give this serious consideration as you consider moving into the DFW area.
