We are one family in Jesus, putting faith to work in love.

“…the only thing that matters is faith lived out in love.” Galatians 5:6

The Pathway

Early Christians were called “followers of the way,” indicating a particular road or path. Each person is on his or her own spiritual journey, and we want to facilitate four movements along that pathway, from seeker to believer to belonger to disciple to apostle.

The Five Inside-Out Habits

In order to move forward on this pathway, we strive to practice these five habits and put our values into action.
· We pray to build a closer relationship of love with Jesus Christ.
· We study the Bible to dig deeper and learn everything we can about God’s love.
· We make friends because lives are changed in community.
· We tell our stories to share with others how God is still at work in the world.
· We give ourselves away in generosity and service as apostles, sent by Jesus to be the good news in the world.

These are the habits we use to open ourselves to be used by God, to be recipients and participants in what God seeks to do in us and through us. And when we do this together God does some amazing things in our midst.

Making God’s Story Yours

We are one church with four faith communities.

Traditional Worship Community

The Traditional Worship Community follows familiar liturgy with a dynamic, scripture-inspired message and is accompanied by exquisite choirs and congregational hymns.


Encounter Contemporary Worship Community
Fellowship Hall*

Encounter God in a relaxed atmosphere, with a praise band, coffee and donuts, bubbly children being children, experiential prayer elements and a challenging and encouraging message.


The Story Houston Community
The Story Houston Building

The Story Houston Community inspires both Christians and nonreligious Houstonians to play their part in the unfolding story of God’s love in Jesus Christ. Dress is casual, music is modern and sometimes loud, coffee is hot and the donuts are fresh.


The Gethsemane Community

The Gethsemane Community is nestled in the heart of one of Houston’s most diverse neighborhoods. We are an Inside-Out church committed to living out our faith in love by serving our neighbors.

Join the Family!

If you are looking for a church home, St. Luke’s provides you the opportunity to participate in passionate worship, faith-forming relationships, and ministries that make a difference.

Step 1: Coffee with the Pastor
Coffee with the Pastor is a casual group gathering with Dr. Tom Pace, Senior Pastor at St. Luke’s. During Coffee with the Pastor, he will share his spiritual journey and invite you to examine your own. You will learn more about St. Luke’s values and vision and how to be a part of the life and mission of the church. Coffee with the Pastor is offered throughout the year.

Step 2: Joining Sunday
After you attend Coffee with the Pastor, we welcome you to join on any Joining Sunday that follows at the worship service of your choice.

Step 3: Inside-Out Habits Class
After you join the church, we hope you will participate with other new members in a 6-week Inside-Out Habits class. The class will explore five “inside-out” habits that are the foundation of what we do together as a church: prayer, Bible study, telling our stories, building friendships, and giving ourselves away. We believe practicing these habits calls us into a deeper relationship with God and enables us to share the good news of Christ with both word and deed.

Step 4: Get Connected
We encourage you to be faithful in your Sunday worship participation and to find at least one additional way to engage with St. Luke’s. Participation in a small group or service opportunity is a great way to begin.
