Thanks for visiting our website! We hope it helps you get a glimpse of who we are as a local congregation of the Christian Church and what we do in our various ministries. East Fork Baptist Church of McKinney, Texas exists to help people connect to GOD, grow in a personal relationship with Jesus, The Christ, and join in GOD's work on Earth with our church family. If you're looking for a Bible-believing and Scripturally-grounded local portion of Christ's visible Church to be a part of then be assured that there is always room with us for you to do so.
People often wonder what to expect when they visit a church. First, at East Fork Baptist Church (which is affiliated with the Southern Baptist Convention, the Baptist General Convention of Texas, and the Collin County, Texas Baptist Association), we don't focus on dress as much as we do the desire to encounter GOD. Even so, one should be thoughtful of the fact that he and/or she is presenting themself in one of GOD's houses of worship and that Scripture teaches that when Christians gather together to worship The One True and Living GOD that they are to let all things "be done decently and in order" (1st Corinthians 14:40 - such inspired instruction includes dressing respectfully and in a non-offensive manner.)
Casual dress is the current norm in today's society, including when true Christians gather together but that does not mean that we should lose sight of the fact that we are worshipping GOD and that whatever we do should be done in a manner that is obedient to His Word; i.e. "do everything to God's glory" (1st Corinthians 10:31 - the Scriptural direction is that we should do all things with the intent of honoring GOD).
Additionally we know people worship through singing praises to GOD so our music is a blend of hymns, special offerings of contemporary worship songs, and seasonal choir presentations.
To sum up:
