2)

Transform in community

We believe the best place to connect more deeply with God and each other is in community. Our hope is that you would find a home here with the McKinney family, and that you would become more like Christ in the process.

Doxology Roots

What We Believe

The Bible

We believe that the Bible is the authoritative revelation from God to men and that it is completely without error, uniquely inspired through the direction of the Holy Spirit. The Scriptures, therefore, are the only reliable guideposts in matters of faith and practice.

God

We believe in the Trinity — Three Persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. All three are equally God, are of one substance, and are without beginning or end.

Jesus Christ

We believe that Jesus Christ is fully God and fully man, conceived of the Holy Spirit and virgin-born to Mary. He died on the cross as our substitute, taking upon Himself the penalty for our sin. He was buried and was physically resurrected to prove the completeness of His work, providing our victory over sin and death.

Salvation

We believe that man was created to enjoy a close, intimate relation to God, but that he sinned, and thereby fell under God's judgment — physically in death, spiritually in alienation from God. All mankind has inherited this state and a sinful nature, which renders him totally unable on his own merit to gain salvation, or to regain his former position of fellowship with God. God's remedy for man's ruin is thus entirely of grace through one's personal trust in what Christ completed for him on the cross.

Christ's Return

We believe in the personal, imminent return of our Lord Jesus Christ prior to the establishment of His kingdom on the earth. Those who are believers shall be forever in the presence of God, and those who have rejected Christ will be separated from God forever.

Our History

Dr. Samuel and Elizabeth McKinney

On February 6th, 1954 a group of people gathered together with a dream of starting a different kind of church in Fort Worth. Rather than a place where Christ-followers landed for ministry one day a week, they dreamed of a church where Christ-followers launched for ministry every day of the week.

The church was originally named “McKinney Memorial Church” in honor of Dr. Samuel McKinney, a Bible Teacher in Fort Worth who had a passion for teaching the Bible in a winsome way, and for what God was doing all over the world. He was seen as a prototype of the kind of person McKinney Memorial Church was hoping to develop and launch. He broke ground on the church’s first building on his 91st birthday.  

On October 28th, 2018, McKinney Memorial Church became Doxology Bible Church. The change allowed us to eliminate confusion caused by a fast-growing city called “McKinney” north of Dallas, while continuing to reflect the same goal we’ve shared since 1954: to display and declare who God is and what He’s like from this city to the world.
