In the fall of 1977, our church was formed under the leadership of Dr. Gene Getz and a group of people whose goal was to bring a relational, contemporary, bible church to the North Dallas/Park Cities area. The first service was held on Sunday evening, October 9, 1977, and Park Cities Bible Fellowship (later changed to Fellowship Bible Church of the Park Cities) was officially launched.
In the summer of 1980, Fellowship Park Cities moved to a newer facility on Boedeker Street, just south of NorthPark Mall. The church then underwent a season of leadership change and overcame challenges like paying off debt from acquiring the new property. By God’s grace, the then 120-person congregation successfully completed its transition to the new location and began to thrive.
In the 80’s and ‘90s, the church experienced continued growth, increased fruitfulness, and eventually purchased an office complex at Meadow Road and Central Expressway. This complex was renovated into a church, and in August 1993, the name was changed to Fellowship Bible Church Dallas. In 2004, the church purchased the former United Artists Plaza on Central at Park Lane and repurposed it throughout 2005. In March 2006, Fellowship Dallas moved into its new home and remains there to the present day.
In October 2017, Fellowship Dallas celebrates its 40th anniversary with approximately 3,500 people calling it their church home. Today, we are a beautifully diverse local expression of the Body of Christ with different generations, cultures, ethnicities, and life stages. We remain steadfastly committed to our foundations of God’s amazing grace, sound biblical teaching, and authentic community. Though we’ve experienced significant changes over the years with transitions to new locations, new leadership and new mission and vision, something that never has changed is our deep desire to proclaim and live out the Gospel of Jesus Christ to each other, the surrounding neighborhoods, the city of Dallas, and the world.
