About Us

Meeting people where they are and caring for them is the first step. Jesus were often found socializing with all kinds of people – gaining their confidence and friendship before He shared eternal values that radically changed their lives.

Our congregation is part of God’s final movement on earth. We aren’t perfect, but we want to have a total commitment to Jesus and the mission He has given us.

We want to invite everyone in the DFW area (and beyond) to accept Jesus as Savior and Lord, embrace all Bible truth and join a vibrant Adventist group. Come join us and see the changed lives and be one of the changed lives!

We meet at the church building on Sabbath/Saturday mornings for worship (9 am and 11:30 am) and Bible study for all ages (10:15 am) and throughout the week for fellowship, prayer, service, and training.

We also meet in homes and workplaces throughout the DFW metro area. As we prepare for Jesus’ return together He gives us stronger minds, bodies, families, and children as well as hope and joy.

We are living in the final chapters of earth’s history. Jesus Christ, our crucified, risen and soon-coming Savior, is wrapping things up on Planet Earth in the hearts and minds of each person.

Every person alive is becoming more sensitive to God or more hardened toward God. Soon Jesus will break through the sky and every eye will see Him come. Those who have put their trust in Jesus will fly to meet Him in the air and travel with Him to the place He has prepared for us. And together we will all be gathered around the throne, and bow in worship to the One who gave Himself for us, the One who welcomes all of us home.

See you soon as we prepare to see Jesus soon.

Senior Pastor, Richardson SDA

Hello! My name is Pastor Michael Hayes. I grew up as a member of the Berean Seventh-day Adventist Church and have been involved with the church for most of my life. I have been a chaplain and a pastor for over 25 years and in that time I’ve learned that to love people is what is most important.

My passion is to do everything I possibly can to show as many as I can the deep and abiding love that God has for them. There is no one outside of God’s loving reach. I believe in the ministry of all peoples within the church and outside the church walls. I believe that God loves all kinds of people and so should we. I believe our church should reflect this fact through the boundless impact of God’s love in its membership and constituents. I believe as the Bible says that Heaven will be filled with people from every family, nation and language. Richardson church is all about reaching people with the Gospel (good news) of Jesus Christ that forgiveness and fellowship is available to all willing to accept his family invitation. In short, we want to bring Heaven as close to earth as possible.

I know personally from experience that the true agape’ love of God can be difficult to find in our world today. So many have been beaten down by life and all of its challenges. I have the rejection that many have experienced in this world and lived in the darkest places imaginable. But even there, God found me! And He wants us to help find others who are broken and bruised in this world of pain and give them the light that brightens the gloom. I believe that we have the answer to all of life’s sufferings. It is the love and grace of Jesus Christ. His love is truly transformational. I know because I seek to live in His love daily. And you can too! Come visit with us at Richardson and experience this love first hand. We’ll be looking for you!
