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.
Dear ACC Family,
Our church's COVID-19 Response Team has created a proposal for an On-Campus Worship Option that would run alongside the current online Worship during the time that the pandemic prevents a full return to on-campus worship. The proposal, which was approved by the Church Council and presented during the November 22 Town Hall meeting, envisions the first on-campus worship to be no sooner than the fourth Sunday after Austin reaches Stage 2 of its COVID-19 Risk-Based Guidelines. The link to the proposal is here. At this point in time, there is no plan to reopen any other on-campus ministries. If you have questions, please email email@example.com.
By His grace,
ACC's Covid-19 Response Team
I Am The Lord
Then You Will Know That I Am the Lord
Life is filled with storms that bring harm and destruction. Unfortunately, we also allow them to define who we are and shackle us down. But, there is someone who is much greater than these storms, someone who can deliver us and define us in a whole new way. He is Jesus, the Lord over all.

A Nation Divided
Last semester, we finished studying the reign of Solomon, seeing Israel both at its height and at the beginning of its division and ultimate downfall. This semester, we will be digging into selected passages from Kings, Chronicles and some of the prophetic books. We will examine the ever present faithfulness, justice, mercy, and hope of our God despite Israel's political and spiritual decay, and learn how we can rest in His steadfastness even during uncertain and difficult times in our own lives.
Reading the Bible for All Its Worth
Although we know that God's Word is crucial for our walk with Him, many of us struggle to read and fully understand the Bible. Thankfully, God intends the Scriptures to be accessible to everyone, not just the gifted and the scholarly. Join us as we learn how to accurately understand the different genres of the Bible not only in the context of ancient audiences but also for our lives today. We will be using the Fee and Stuart book, How To Read the Bible for All Its Worth, as our guide.
We will spend the semester looking at selected passages in the Psalms. When you read the book you truly see the authentic heart of the Psalmist. Whether joyful, sad, angry, or discouraged, the Psalmist's interaction with God is something we can identify with, especially in light of what we went through in 2020. In other words, the Psalms teaches us what worship is and how we can approach God vulnerably. As we enter into 2021, having a robust grasp of worship will be key as we engage with our Lord as a community of faith.
