Our Name and History

The Meaning Behind Our Name

A watermark represents…

Authenticity. Higher denominations of currency are watermarked to prove they are genuine. In the same way, we want to be people whose lives and relationships are marked by authenticity, integrity, and truth.

"But the goal of our instruction is love from a pure heart and a good conscience and a sincere faith." (1 Timothy 1:5)

Excellence. Fine paper often features a watermark as evidence of its quality. We strive for excellence, without compromise, in all areas of our ministry and lives, believing that excellence honors God and inspires people.

"Whatever you do, do your work heartily, as for the Lord rather than for men." (Colossians 3:23)

A lasting impression. The continual presence of water at a certain level leaves a mark long after it is gone. It is our hope, because we have lived faithfully as God's people, that long after we have gone we would make an impact for His Kingdom that would be seen for generations to come.

"You are our letter, written in our hearts, known and read by all men." (2 Corinthians 3:2)

The history of Watermark’s Frisco campus actually began in 1998 in Dallas, when a group of friends began to meet and consider what it would look like if they prayerfully pursued a life of faithfulness to Scriptures as they devoted their lives to Christ together in Dallas. As they prayed and studied God’s Word, it became increasingly clear that the best way to accomplish God’s purposes for them was through the formation of a new local gathering of God’s people.

After months of prayer, planning, and agreement on purpose and values, the core group grew from eight families to dozens more. On October 30, 1999, 150 prayerful, passionate people covenanted together to serve Christ and His purposes in Dallas as Watermark Community Church. They spent their first evening together discussing and praying over the beliefs, purposes, and biblical core values that would guide them to be faithful servants of Christ’s purposes in their city.

On November 7, 1999, Watermark Community Church held its first corporate gathering and began intentionally ministering to the unchurched, dechurched, dead-churched, and unmoved. Thirteen years later, a group of Fort Worth families and single adults began praying about being the church on the west side of Dallas/Fort Worth. On March 3, 2013, Watermark Fort Worth held its first corporate worship service at the Ridglea Theatre in Fort Worth.

Less than a year after Watermark Fort Worth began meeting, a group of families in the Plano area began to pray about being the church to their neighbors and friends in Collin County. On January 11, 2015, years of planning, prayer, and provision by the Lord culminated in the opening of Watermark’s Plano Campus at 6400 K Ave. in Plano. Two years later, families and single adults began praying about how they might be the church in Frisco, Prosper, and surrounding communities.

The major events leading up to the founding of Watermark’s Frisco campus are as follows:

  • In spring of 2017, Watermark families and single adults in Plano and Dallas began to pray about launching a new ministry in Frisco. A gathering began on the Plano campus each week to pray for leaders and resources for a new campus in Frisco.
  • In 2018, Watermark leaders began meeting with Frisco ISD about the possibility of meeting at the Frisco High School campus. At the same time, Watermark Frisco families began studying 1 Timothy together and praying about how they might impact their community for Christ.
  • Watermark Frisco had its first corporate worship service on October 28, 2018 at Frisco High School. The Frisco campus launched Men’s Summit, women’s connecting events, and re|engage throughout 2019.
  • In the summer of 2019, the Frisco team opened a mid-week ministry space at 11000 Frisco Street.
  • The Porch North for Collin County young adults, re:generation and many other ministries are part of our growing ministry in Collin County.
