About Cibolo Creek Community Church

Cibolo Creek Community Church is nestled in the heart of the Texas Hill Country.  Our surrounding cities, Fair Oaks Ranch and Boerne have seen significant growth in the last 5 years.  As San Antonio is growing north, there are plans for an additional 1,800 homes to be built within 5 miles of the current church building.  The more than 700 who call Cibolo Creek home have been committed to the area and recently celebrated their 25th Anniversary.  The Lord has graciously gifted Cibolo Creek with 38 acres to build a new multi-use campus that can serve as a hub of spiritual renewal and missional living for generations to come.  While the future is bright, there is work to be done.  

 

Vision and Mission of Cibolo Creek Community Church 

Our Mission here at Cibolo Creek is to lead people into a growing relationship with Jesus.
