Our History

Our History

In the fall of 1976, the elders of the Spring Branch church of Christ in Houston determined a need for a faithful congregation in the FM 1960 area of northwest Houston. They employed W.R. Jones to lead this effort. As a result, the first meeting of this new group met on January 16, 1977 at Wunderlich Intermediate School on Misty Valley.

The following week the group met to determine participation assignments. Kleinwood church of Christ was the name selected for designation purposes. Seventeen adults were in attendance that first Sunday. From the beginning, this group was blessed with significant spiritual and numerical growth. Many factors contributed to this wonderful situation. A positive attitude and brotherly love was combined with the requirement of bible authority for every endeavor. The faithful effort assured God’s blessings which He abundantly provided. The FM 1960 area was also a blessing as population growth in the area provided job opportunities and aided the opportunities to teach the gospel to greater numbers in the area. 

As the future looked bright, a decision was made to purchase a parcel of land on Misty Valley across the street from Klein Forest high school. The plan was to use this land purchase to build a permanent building for worship. Eventually a classroom building and a building for worship was constructed. These two buildings would later attach to a future planned larger auditorium. As numerical growth continued, the congregation was blessed to the point where they were able to pay for the full financial support of Brother Jones. 

In 1998, a move to the current location on Kleinwood Dr. in Spring Texas allowed for continued numeric growth and opportunities for individual spiritual development. When looking back to our beginning, God's blessings enabled this growth and spreading of the gospel in this community. Our future path, as in the past, will rely only on our confidence that God’s purpose and plan will succeed with adherence to His directions and commands.

Over the years, Kleinwood’s mission and work has been patterned after that authorized in the New Testament. As a result, no history of our church would be complete without first examining the history of the first century church. Closer examination reveals human innovations were never permitted, only a sincere commitment to honor the commands of God and words of our Lord Jesus Christ. We believe this commitment will continue to secure God’s blessings and favor.  With God’s blessings, the result will be the salvation of souls and the hope of eternal life, as He has promised.
