About

Do Justice

We believe that because of Jesus’ victory over death, God is now making all things new. Of course, there is still much brokenness that exists in the world. We desire to be a community that is active in bringing justice into the world. This is a response to the call of the scriptures to all be ministers of reconciliation as we ourselves are being reconciled to God.

Love Mercy

We desire to build a church that practices radical hospitality and inclusivity. The message of the gospel is that everyone can experience a life-changing relationship with Christ, regardless of their past, their mistakes, or their inadequacies. We desire to be an extension of the Lord’s mercy, serving as His hands extended into our community.

Walk Humbly

We are a church welcoming of everyone regardless of where they are on their individual spiritual journey. Whether deep, doubt, despair, or dead describes the state of your journey, we invite you into a community of people comfortable with questions and uncertainties. Come and belong to a place that will walk alongside you with humility, patience, and grace.

Table Church

The Church

We are a community of people intent on experiencing the presence and power of the risen Christ in our daily lives. We are a local church that is defined by three priorities: Spirit, Scripture, and Sacrament. We believe that when we gather, God’s Spirit works in and through us. We receive the holy scriptures with open hearts, expecting to be challenged and changed. At the heart of our corporate worship is communion, which we receive weekly.

Beliefs

Table Church is an inter-denominational church that holds to the essential orthodox Christian beliefs as outlined in the Nicene Creed.

We believe that the scriptures in the Old and New Testaments reveal the nature and character of God. Compiled over many years, these inspired texts are the story of God’s revelation of Himself to people. This story culminates in the birth, life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ. As people who believe in the transforming power of his resurrection, we welcome you to the table to experience his grace that makes all things new.

Read the Creed

We believe in one God, the Father, the Almighty, maker of heaven and earth, of all that is, seen and unseen.

We believe in one Lord, Jesus Christ, the only Son of God, eternally begotten of the Father, God from God, Light from Light, true God from true God, begotten, not made, of one Being with the Father. Through him all things were made. For us and for our salvation he came down from heaven: by the power of the Holy Spirit he became incarnate from the Virgin Mary, and was made man. For our sake he was crucified under Pontius Pilate; he suffered death and was buried. On the third day he rose again in accordance with the Scriptures; he ascended into heaven and is seated at the right hand of the Father. He will come again in glory to judge the living and the dead, and his kingdom will have no end. We believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the giver of life, who proceeds from the Father [and the Son].1 With the Father and the Son he is worshiped and glorified. He has spoken through the Prophets.

We believe in one holy catholic 2 and apostolic Church. We acknowledge one baptism for the forgiveness of sins. We look for the resurrection of the dead, and the life of the world to come. Amen.

Josh Morris

Pastor

Hey everyone! My name is Josh and this is my family! I married Hannah in 2004 when I was 22 and she was 19. What were her parents thinking!? I love being married to Hannah and I love that we have grown so much together over the last 14 years. Our son Grady is 11 and he loves school and learning. The only thing that sometimes gets in the way of his academic passion is video games. We are working on that. Willow is 8 years old and is obsessed with animals. She wants to be a vet when she grows up and she is constantly trying to talk us into buying more pets. Hannah and I love doing ministry together and while stepping out of my job at Gateway Church where I had worked for nearly 15 years was terrifying, we knew that God was calling us to Austin and we are so excited to be here.

Chad Sykes

Pastor

I grew up in the thriving metropolis of Burkburnett, TX where my early days consisted of riding my bike all over town and playing almost every sport involving a ball. While a young college student dating a stunningly beautiful young woman who also happened to be a Christian, I had a profound salvation experience that altered the trajectory of my life. After praying, fasting, and pleading before God, miraculously I married that stunning young woman, Brandy. Soon after, I entered pastoral ministry at the ripe old age of 22. During our sixteen years of marriage, we’ve added four incredible kids into the mix, Ella Kate, Liam, Henry and Charlotte. I reluctantly confess to being a devout book nerd and I love to read on theology, church history, and technology. I also consume so many podcasts that it couldn’t be healthy for me or, for that matter, any human being.

Cole Novak

Pastor

My first name is Jonathan, a name which my parents have never used. I’m originally from Oklahoma, but I consider myself a Texan by choice. I grew up in church and felt called to ministry at a young age. When I was 12 I learned to play guitar, joined the worship team, and fell in love with playing and writing music that connects people to God. It wasn’t until I was 17, driving through the middle of nowhere, listening to Sigur Rós, bawling like a baby, that I fully committed to following Jesus. I met my wife, Lindsey, at church, and we’ve been married six years. We have three boys, Nolan, Amos and Kohen. When I’m not busy playing guitar or chasing my boys, I enjoy watching The Office on repeat, drinking craft root beer, and playing video games even though I am bad at them.
