Holy Word is one church that operates two locations: northeast Austin and a new start in Pflugerville. Both locations are blessed with many of the same features: our friendly culture, easy access to Bible teaching at all levels, community connection, personable staff, and the unity of our belief and mission. However, each location offers a slightly different style and local fit in the community. Whether you are a first time guest, a seeker, skeptic, or lost soul, or a long time Christian, we invite you to get to know us. Explore this website and—better yet—visit this Sunday at either location. Come as you are!
