We need a robust and bold strategy.

A vision to saturate Fort Worth with the glory and grace of God needs a robust and bold strategy. We Are God’s Building is a two-year vision campaign to raise $4.5 million for everything The Paradox Church is called to do in the next two years. Jesus has laid a Gospel foundation in our hearts and given us an angst to love and serve the city in these ways: 

cityrenewal

WE NEED

TO MOBILIZE A CITY RENEWAL

BUILT TO SERVE

WHY? The Church is sent to be light that pushes back darkness. God’s heart for the poor and the oppressed is evident throughout the Scriptures. And the Gospel shows us that we were poor and unloved, and Jesus served us.

WHAT? We will mobilize our people to love the poor, care for the sexually exploited, give hope to race relations, fight for the unborn, and adopt the orphan.

COST: $135,500

BUILT IN MORE NEIGHBORHOODS

musicarts

WE NEED

TO JOIN THE CITY IN ITS LOVE FOR THE ARTS

BUILT TO STIR THE AFFECTIONS
