To make disciples of Jesus Christ by sharing His good news with all people, especially with those of Chinese descent, and helping them grow as followers of Christ, so that together we will bear witness of His glory in Austin, in the surrounding areas, and to the ends of the earth.
Be Dependable Because You Aren't Expendable
Most of us desire to live our lives in a way that results in healthy growth and activity. One could argue that God desires that for us also! However, how well do we live when it comes to taking care of the Body of Christ? In today's text, the importance of EVERY person in the church as a body part cannot be denied. How can we be a healthy and growing Body of Christ? It requires all of us to show up and to embrace our God-given roles.
Announcements & Events
Dear Church Family,
In light of the rapidly changing events in our city regarding COVID-19, our church leadership is asking for your cooperation for this Sunday's worship service.
Austin has re-entered Stage 4 on 7/23/2021 with the following key guidance from Austin Public Health:
- Fully vaccinated individuals should wear a mask when participating in indoor private gatherings, traveling, and dining or shopping, and should wear a mask for outdoor gatherings, if they are unable to socially distance.
- Partially or unvaccinated individuals should avoid private gatherings, travel, dining and shopping unless essential. Wear a mask when conducting essential activities.
Therefore, ACC will continue our "limited re-open" for our worship services adhering to the public health guidelines:
- Fully vaccinated individuals should wear a mask when participating in ACC worship services while maintaining social distance, with the exception of speakers, song leaders and presiders.
- Partially or unvaccinated individuals should avoid attending ACC worship services in person and continue to participate via livestream.
Continue to pray for us to be wise and purposeful as we take a week at a time. May we be guided by the Spirit and have an extra dose of patience, love, grace and JOY!
Blessed to be your pastors,

Full Sunday Service Reopening
In response to updates to CDC guidelines, the COVID-19 Response Team has proposed, and the Church Council has approved, a return to full-capacity Sunday service worship. Starting with that date, preregistration will not be required, and capacity limits and designated seating areas will be eliminated. With the elimination of the designated seating areas, CDC social-distancing guidelines for unvaccinated people will no longer be followed. Wearing of masks will still be strongly encouraged for all attendees age two and older. These changes apply to all three congregations. The online worship alternatives will still be offered.

Discipleship at Work DG
Your 9-5 might seem mundane, but it is actually God-ordained! He has set you in your workplace and intends for you to be a light and a messenger of the Good News there. Colossians 3:23 says, “Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters." In this course, we will learn and practice what it means to be a faithful witness for Christ at work. We will go over fears and obstacles, investing in relationships, starting spiritual conversations, and ultimately, what it looks like to become disciples who make disciples in the workplace.
An Introduction to the History of the Church
In order to comprehend the present, it’s often important to understand the past. Join us this summer as we seek to look at the history of the church in order to understand, reflect, and mine for the various treasures of wisdom that are waiting to be uncovered.
A People Restored (Bible track)
Israel and Judah had been exiled from the Promised Land. While it seemed that God had left His people, a closer look shows that God continued to sustain His people and ultimately brought them back home. Join us this semester as we study Daniel, the post-exilic prophets, and Ezra, Nehemiah, and Esther, to see God working, even in the darkest of times, to restore His people.
