First Baptist Dallas Contributes To Downtown Resurrection Of Ninth-Largest U.S. City With Grand Opening Of $130 Million Campus Easter Sunday
During the invitation at the end of the services, more than 75 individuals came down to the altar to make a decision for Christ and join the church. "It has been our prayer that God would use this campus as a tool to bring people to Christ, and He has answered that prayer," Jeffress said.
The new First Baptist Dallas campus includes the latest features and technological advances for any church, providing a unique worship experience and ministry opportunities.
The 3,000-seat Worship Center sits beside the 122-year-old historic sanctuary. During this morning's services, a dramatic film of Jesus' resurrection was the first image viewed on the 150-foot-wide IMAX-quality video wall stretching more than two-thirds the width of the Worship Center. Additionally, wood bands along the surrounding walls containing LED strips programmed to millions of different colors, created dramatic ambient lighting to supplement and enhance the video, music and messages of the service.
Attendees entering the Worship Center passed by a high-impact cross-tower and fountain, featuring a stainless steel cross atop a pedestal rising 68 feet high and choreographed fountain jets accompanied by an original score of Christian hymns.Connected to the Worship Center via a glass sky bridge is the five-story Horner Family Center, with educational space for children birth through high school, and a parking garage, providing easy access for young families attending worship. On April 7, First Baptist Dallas will host Dr. David Jeremiah for Dedication Sunday; Texas Governor Rick Perry is also scheduled to attend. For more information, visit http://www.FirstDallas.org.
