Welcome!

We're glad you've taken the time to explore First Baptist Church of Groesbeck. We believe Jesus offers the fullest life imaginable to those who know and follow Him. As those who have believed and received His grace, we seek to glorify Him together. We hope you will join us. You are welcome here!

what to expect

First and foremost, expect to encounter Holy God! Next, expect to encounter Him alongside a group of broken people; we never want to put on a religious mask. We are all broken and need to be healed by Jesus; we want you to be welcome in seeking the Savior in any season of life. Come as you are!

Life. Family. Mission

LIFE

We seek to be a place where people experience abundant life in Christ—where the lost find new life in Christ and believers grow and mature as they worship and walk with Jesus.


We also strive to be a place where disciples are equipped to make disciples. Titus 2 shows a discipleship culture within the church as older and younger men and women disciple one another through sound teaching. Discipleship is critical to thriving churches. God designed our faith to grow in Christian community. Discipleship is helping each other know and follow Jesus more.


At FBC Groesbeck, three core layers of discipleship help individuals experience abundant life in Christ. The first layer is Sunday morning worship services as we gather together as a church family to worship God through singing, prayer, giving, and hearing from God’s Word.


The second layer is our Sunday morning Life Groups, which are small group Bible studies for children and adults where you can grow and flourish as a believer regardless of how long you’ve been a Christian. God designed the Christian life to be built in community. In these groups, we study God’s word together, encourage one another, pray, and help each other follow Jesus. As you walk through the highs and lows of life, your life group is there to walk through it with you.


The third layer is discipleship groups of 3-5 people who meet weekly to discuss their personal Bible reading, memorize Scripture, pray for one another, and hold one another accountable.


FAMILY

We seek to be a place where physical and spiritual families flourish. When Jesus saves us, he adopts us into a spiritual family with brothers and sisters in Christ. According to the Bible, spiritual family is a stronger bond than physical family. Families care for, support and are committed to one another. In the church, men and women from all ages and stages become a spiritual family—Christians of different backgrounds finding common identity in Christ, as they lay down preferences and work together on mission.


In the church, Christians experience and express genuine gospel community as we love, care for, and encourage one another to walk with Christ. Relationships are prioritized and each member uses his/her gifts to serve.


Additionally, we want to be a place where physical families thrive. Our world suffers from a lack of healthy, thriving families who know and follow Christ. We aim to engage children with the gospel, see teens walk closely with Jesus, and equip parents and grandparents to lead and disciple in the home. We pray for God save and restore struggling marriages and families.


Building thriving families is a whole-church investment, with every member giving and serving and praying and mentoring. We need members to jump in and serve in our children’s and youth ministries. We need members to come alongside and encourage younger couples and families. We need the whole family serving and pulling together.


MISSION

We are the family of God on the mission of God. We encourage every member to live out their faith as a missionary to their family, work, community, and spheres of influence. As a church we pray for the gospel to go forth in power; we give financially to support the work of missions in our community and around the world to start new churches; and we participate in mission trips and engage our local community to bring the life-giving salvation of Jesus to our neighbors.


In our community, we have quarterly GO Days, where we go door-to-door in our community to invite people to church, offer to pray for their needs, and present the good news of salvation. We also have missions partnerships in South Texas and Colorado to see the gospel expand through the planting of new churches.
