First Time Visitors

Gethsemane is an historic, alive church on the north side of Austin near the intersection of Interstate 35 and Highway 183. We are multigenerational and strive to be a community where faith and friendships are nurtured in a safe, accepting and affirming style of church life. When you worship at Gethsemane, there is no “dress code.” Come as you are! We encourage God’s children of all ages to worship, learn, and serve together. All have a place at God’s table of grace and are welcome to fully participate in the ministry of Christ which we share. We open our doors to all who may have been excluded because of sexual orientations, gender identities/expressions, race, economic status, ability, age, or station in life. All are welcome here!
