Who we are

We are followers of Jesus Christ who believe in the power of God’s Word to transform lives for God’s glory.

Our various ministries and resources are designed to help chisel God’s Truth on each person’s heart so that our lives may better reflect His glory.

OUR CORE VALUES

WORSHIP

Our powerful corporate worship on Sunday mornings is designed to help you connect with God. Led by our full choir and orchestra, we join together to sing praises to our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, and prepare our hearts to hear from God’s Word during the message.

CONNECT

Our desire is to help you connect to God and to one another. You may have heard it said that “no man’s an island,” and that is why here at Shepherd’s, we strive to provide a variety of ways to help you get connected into fellowship with one another.

GROW

Spiritual growth happens best in the context of small groups. “As iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another” (Proverbs 27:17). That’s why we offer an abundance of groups, classes, seminars and more to help you go deeper into God’s Word together.

SERVE

As Christians, each one of us has been gifted with special skills, talents and experiences to serve the body of Christ, which is His church. When the church functions collectively as God intended, we both edify one another, and also effectively reach others with the gospel.

SHARE

Before Jesus ascended to heaven, He gave a command to His followers to “go therefore and make disciples of all nations (Matthew 28:19). We do that in a variety of ways, including sharing the love of Christ through community outreach as well as missional work around the globe.

History of The Shepherd’s Church Cary

The Beginning

Our church’s story begins over thirty-five years ago. Newly graduated with a Masters of Sacred Theology from Dallas Theological Seminary, Stephen Davey arrived in the Triangle area to plant a church. Stephen and his wife, Marsha, trusted God as they took this step of faith and moved across country with their twin infant sons. God took care of the details – from guiding Stephen to the location, to providing money for the rent. An advertisement in The Cary News announced the new church, and Colonial Baptist Church began with Sunday services on September 7, 1986. Twenty-eight people were in attendance for the morning service in the band room at East Cary Middle School.

From the beginning, Stephen preached in an expository style, and as word spread of the church’s solid scriptural foundation, the new fellowship began to grow. “God has given us a ministry that isn’t built around one man or one program,” Pastor Davey says.

Sola Scriptura

“Sola Scriptura, the Scriptures alone, remains the primary compass for everything we are doing, planning, teaching and pursuing.” It was on that solid foundation that Colonial chartered its first members in 1987. The 45 members-to-be participated in the prototype Greenhouse class – a Saturday morning session in a church family’s basement. Also in 1987, Colonial began supporting its first missionary. By 2006, more than $5 million had been given to global missions.

A Permanent Home

In 1989 plans for a church building began to intensify, and groundbreaking on a new building at 6750 Tryon Road occurred in 1991. By that time there were more than 450 regular attenders, and a second service was added at East Cary Middle School. Services were first held in Colonial’s new home in 1992, but within months, the congregation voted unanimously to relocate as the building was quickly outgrown. In 1993, we installed temporary classroom trailers next to our building to accommodate the growing population of children. In 1995, we added a third worship service. By the time we left that property we had converted all of the offices into nurseries and moved the offices off-site. On Sunday morning, we were renting two public schools for children and student Sunday school, and adult Sunday school was meeting in an office complex.

It took 9 years to find our current location – land that had been owned by one family since the 1850’s – and the congregation raised nearly 2 million dollars and purchased this strategically located corner property in 1995. The first phase included the Worship Center and the buildings now known as the Administration Center and the Family Center. Our first services at 6051 Tryon Road were held on Easter, 2001. In 2007, Student and Children’s Centers were completed which added to the growing Campus a beautiful Chapel, Café, Library and new classrooms for elementary students along with classrooms capable of streaming Shepherds seminary courses around the world.

Vision for the Future

“Church growth was never our intention, and it still isn’t!” Pastor Davey says. “We’ve simply responded to what God is doing.” While God has provided richly for the needs of the church, the history of Colonial is so much more than numbers and buildings. It’s a story about individuals serving, growing and learning together as part of a living body. As the church grew, new ministries developed to equip the body and reach out to the community. Ten key ministry departments and Shepherds Theological Seminary provide opportunities for growth and service to the 4,000 people who attend Colonial and to the community beyond. More than 110 different ministry programs are operating and are staffed by over 2,000 volunteers. Additionally, by the end of 2014, the Colonial Family had given away $11 million dollars to missions enterprises around the world. Now, those are numbers to celebrate!

“To this day, I am more excited about tomorrow than yesterday,” Stephen says, “and I remain convinced that our greatest step of faith is the next one.” The tomorrow that Stephen is excited about is a church that invests in other churches and multiplies believers – a church that in 2013 added to its bustling schedule national events such as the ACBC Conference to train biblical counselors. Colonial also launched their annual National 360 Shepherds Conference for Church Leaders in 2014 which allows Colonial the opportunity to mentor churches on a regional and national level.

For Stephen and the entire Elder Team, this isn’t just a vision for Colonial. As in Colonial’s early days, it’s just a matter of “responding to the work that God ignites, establishes and advances.”

Renaming Our Church

In February 2020—before the COVID-19 pandemic hit—our elder team began discussing a name change for our church that would better communicate our identity in Christ, and our joy in following Him. They wanted a name that communicated our loyalty to biblical doctrine instead of a Baptist denomination; an identity unrelated to a period in American history or a style of architecture. They simply and prayerfully desired a church name that would focus attention on our joy in belonging to Jesus Christ, our Shepherd. They chose, “The Shepherd’s Church, and in December 2020, our church voted to officially change the name.   Edit
