Our Heritage

Southeast Church of Christ is 100 years old! We have traced our congregation back to 1914 when a small group of believers met in the upper room of a drugstore at Harrisburg and 67th Street in Houston. Fewer than 12 people - with great faith – collected enough money to buy a piece of land on which they built a building to house their church at Sherman and Wayside. Our next building was on the Gulf Freeway near Hobby Airport, and the Southeast Church of Christ is now located on West Bay Area Blvd. in Friendswood. We are still growing in this location and expanding our reach to people all over the world.



Our Beliefs

We believe we are called to love as Christ loved, and we are only saved by His grace. We believe that as Christians, followers of Christ, we are called to be His ambassadors in this world. We are called to teach His good news, the Gospel, to every person who will hear. We do this by formal means (Bible study, sermons and conversation), but also by informal means (acts of service to others). You will find us to be a people who place a high emphasis on teaching and baptizing, but we also stay very active in ministries that lead others to the Gospel by serving and caring for them. We believe an effective way to spread the Gospel is to try diligently to be Christ-like. The way He lived is the perfect example for us to follow, and we believe we will win souls for Christ by not only teaching the things He taught but also by doing the things He did.

Our Mission

Southeast Church of Christ is a growing family of believers who seeks to change our world to the glory of Jesus Christ. We are committed to demonstrating love and unity in our fellowship with one another. By the grace of God, we can be the hands and the feet, the eyes and the ears of Christ to add as many souls as possible to the Kingdom of God.



Meet Our Elders

Southeast is led by these men. We call them Elders or Shepherds.

They have accepted the responsibility for the spiritual care of our members at Southeast, and they pray without ceasing for us. They are interested in knowing you and studying with you. They are a solid, unified group of Godly men who seek God’s will for the vision we have at Southeast. Take time to read about why they came to Southeast and what keeps them here.



Church-life at Southeast is not about coming here one day a week. It’s about maintaining a lifestyle dedicated to serving others, to making connections, and to being actively involved in our community to share the Gospel of Christ. We have a number of special servants who attend to the spiritual, physical, and informational needs of the members and guests of Southeast as a career. Our Staff’s dedication to the ministry of Southeast is strong.
