  Faith is alive and well in Lubbock, judging by the number of churches that are adding more space to existing facilities or have moved into new facilities within the last 12 to 18 months.

  Lubbock places of worship offer a wide variety of choices, including a mosque and a synagogue. Baptist and Church of Christ congregations predominate, but many other denominational groups also have a significant presence, including regional offices.
