GTAustin is one church with multiple locations – 5 locations to be exact.
With locations across the greater Austin area, there is a place for you to connect.
Pastors Michael & Tamara Norman are committed to leading a congregation that reaches beyond the ‘4 walls’ of the church and makes an impact locally, globally and with future generations. The commitment is to be a church planting, missions sending, outreach focused community that allows God’s presence to lead them each step of the way. The church is continuing to grow, and as the church grows so do the stories of life change through Jesus Christ.
Pastor Michael & Tamara have three daughters, Madison, M’Kenna and Malley, and are often outdoors enjoying the hills and trails of Austin.

GTAUSTIN IS A PRESENCE-DRIVEN, DISCIPLE-MAKING, CHURCH-PLANTING, COMMUNITY LOCATED IN THE HEART OF AUSTIN, TX. AS ONE CHURCH WITH MULTIPLE CAMPUSES, WE ARE DETERMINED TO SPREAD THE MESSAGE OF CHRIST THROUGHOUT THE GREATER AUSTIN AREA. WE ARE DETERMINED TO BE A SOURCE FOR OUR CITY TO FIND HOPE, TRUTH, AND THE PRESENCE OF GOD THAT CHANGES LIVES FOREVER.
GOD IS THE ONE TRUE GOD AND JESUS CHRIST IS HIS SON
There is one all powerful God that is the creator of Heaven and Earth. He loved us so much that he sent his Son so we can have a relationship with Him. Jesus Christ is fully God who was born of a virgin, lived a sinless life, taught truth, died on a cross, and resurrected from the dead. His same healing power is available for us today.
COMMUNION AND WATER BAPTISM
There are two ways we can remember what Jesus did for us on the cross. Communion is memorial and a celebration. The eucharist consists of two elements: the bread helps remind us of his body and the cup reminds us of his blood. The Bible encourages us to follow his example by being immersed in water as soon after we make a decision to follow him. It is a public way for us to show that we are changed.
GOD’S PLAN FOR THE END TIMES
1 Thessalonians 4:17
The Bible says that Jesus will return to the earth to bring his followers to Heaven. There will be a final judgment in which the dead will be resurrected and judged. Everyone whose name is not in the Book of Life will be separated for eternity in Hell. Those whose names are written in the Book of Life will be rewarded and spend eternity with other followers in Christ in Heaven.
PEOPLE SIN. GOD SAVES
We mess up and the Bible calls it sin. God created us in his own image, but we chose disobedience. We deserve death and separation from God, but by his grace through his Son Jesus, we can be forgiven. By trusting God as our Lord and Savior, we can experience freedom and live an amazing life.
THE HOLY SPIRIT
The baptism of the Holy Spirit gives us power to share the good news of Jesus Christ as indicated in Acts. The Holy Spirit convicts the world on sin. He gives us different gifts so we can build up the church and love others. The gifts of the spirit demonstrated in an orderly way are a beautiful and vital part of the church.
The church is filled with authentic followers of Jesus who follow the New Testament church in its four purposes (Worship, Instruction, Fellowship, and Evangelism). The mission of the church is to become friends with the unconvicted so there may be opportunities for them to become lifelong followers of Christ.
THE BIBLE IS GOD INSPIRED
2 Timothy 3:16-17
The Bible is our guide book for living. The Old and New Testaments is given by God for us to study so we can know who God is. Scripture is the ultimate authority for life.
God welcomes us the way we are, but change begins to happen from the inside out. We stop living for ourselves and desire to glorify God by our actions and words.
