Our Mission & Values
The Bayou Church exists to transform lives in Acadiana through Christ-centered relationships.
The key word there is "relationships." We believe that we can't do life alone. Together, we spur each other on to real, full and lasting life. Together, we are The Bayou Church.
“I pray that your love will overﬂow more and more, and that you will keep on growing in knowledge and understanding. For I want you to understand what really matters, so that you may live pure and blameless lives until the day of Christ’s return.” Philippians 1:9-10 (NLT)
“‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ This is the ﬁrst and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’” Matthew 22:37-39 (NIV)
Rescued People Reach People
“I’m here inviting outsiders, not insiders—an invitation to a changed life, changed inside and out.” Luke 5:31-32 (MSG)
