Our story

First Baptist Church of Groesbeck was founded in 1872, just one year after the city was established. For 150 years, our church has has been dedicated to the glory of God. We've sought to share the good news of God's salvation, make disciples, and serve our community. We invite you to join us on this mission!

Our beliefs

Jesus is more important than life. Infinitely more important. He is worth more than all our efforts and is worthy of all our efforts. He is the Son of God, King of Kings, fully God, fully man. He lived a sinless life and yet willingly took our sin upon himself on the cross, where he died in our place as the sacrifice for sins. But he rose back to life three days later, presented himself to various crowds of people, and ascended to heaven.


During Jesus' ministry, he called 12 men to follow him as his disciples, learning his ways, eating what he ate, and patterning their lives after him. After his death, resurrection, and ascension, these disciples were filled the the Holy Spirit and set out to fulfill his final commission to make disciples of all nations. And, thus, the church was born.

The Bible is the authentic word of God. It is inerrant and infallible. It is predicated upon the truthfulness of God, displays the faithfulness of God, and establishes the love of God in the hearts of people.

Flowing out of understanding His Word, our desire is to act upon what we have heard and seek to love God, love people, and engage the world. 

We affirm the Baptist Faith & Message (2000) as our statement of faith.
