First Baptist Dallas

With a vision of creating an oasis in the middle of bustling downtown Dallas, this historic congregation is expanding with its first new sanctuary since the 1890s and a new complex that will replace several of the church’s seven buildings. The new, high-tech, 3,000-seat worship center doubles the capacity of the current sanctuary and will be joined by an education center and 500-space new parking garage. The new landmark features a towering stone waterfall with a luminescent cross and shallow pool for open-air baptisms.
