What We Value

Our Mission

We provide a community where people who have been failed by the religious community can feel at home. We give our neighbors at Texas State and in San Marcos a place to explore Christianity together, to receive spiritual mentoring, and to walk together in becoming more like our King Jesus. We’re figuring life out with each other, take responsibility when we screw up, and offer grace when others do too.


Our Name

Our church is named after Acts 2, which talks about the beginnings of the Christian Church, and specifically verse 42, which says, “they devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and to fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer.” We believe that God has established the local church body of believers as the primary means of furthering His Kingdom here on earth, so we want to devote ourselves to getting to know Jesus through scripture, to fellowship, and to walking with God together through our lives.

Our Vision

2.42 Church exists to know Jesus and do his work together.
