Founded in 2016, theheart is rooted in the community of San Marcos, TX. We are made up of a group people that want to spread love, not custom build our own church.


We started as a group of people meeting in a home talking about the things of God and reading through Bible stories.  Our greatest asset that we had was that we knew what it meant to connect with each other in a real way.  We wanted to be able to do that for everyone in our city.  We want people to be able to connect with God through connecting with us! 

Our desire, is that when you visit theheart, you feel welcome.  Our goal is to make you feel comfortable, and to let you know that it's safe to be who you are, all the time.  We believe that God wants to connect with the real us, not who we feel we need to be.


Greater Things

The book of John in the bible was written as a story of the life of Jesus, including many miracles that he performed.  In the 12th chapter. Jesus was talking with his disciples and was trying to help them understand that when they see him, they see the Father.  He wanted them to trust him, then he says this:

The person who trusts me will not only do what I’m doing but even greater things, because I, on my way to the Father, am giving you the same work to do that I’ve been doing. You can count on it. From now on, whatever you request along the lines of who I am and what I am doing, I’ll do it. That’s how the Father will be seen for who he is in the Son. I mean it. Whatever you request in this way, I’ll do.  John 14:12-14

These aren't some inspiring words from a book of quotes, these are the words of Jesus, on earth, in real life.  You see, we believe that Jesus wasn't just talking to his disciples.  Jesus said that any person who trusts him will be able to do greater things, and because we trust Him, we want to do those greater things that He is talking about!
