Our Mission & Vision

Helping Everyone Hear The Word of Christ

Romans 10:17 “Faith comes through hearing, and hearing through the Word of Christ.”

While in a real sense our mission / vision carries a distinct witness in our community, to live out Romans 10:17 as we are helping everyone hear the word of Christ, in another sense our vision is unchanged and identical to all other faithful sister congregations as we align ourselves with 2,000 years of local church historic Biblical Christianity:

Our vision is the same as for every gospel congregation throughout time and around the world. As those who have been redeemed by the blood of Jesus Christ, we want to bring him glory. The main way we do that is through our life together as a church, as this gospel community demonstrates the love of Jesus through our love for each other (John 13:35). We gather together to sing his praises, offer our prayers, hear his Word, and care for one another.  And we serve side by side to see Jesus treasured in worship as the true King both here in our community and to the ends of the earth.

We cannot be sure what life in the future will bring for us as a church any more than we know what tomorrow will bring for us as individuals. We are nonetheless delighted at the spiritual health God has cultivated here and are thankful that He continues to bring committed believers into our fold. It is a blessing to serve God in the mission field of the greater Galveston County area with these brothers and sisters of all ages, backgrounds, and occupations. Soli Deo Gloria! 

Our History

Galveston County Church was established when two existing sister churches, First Baptist Church Hitchcock (1945) and Galveston Church (2018) merged together by covenant in November 2020. Both before and after the church merger our convictions have remained Baptist in their distinctives. We are in friendly cooperation with the Southern Baptist Convention. We remain an autonomous local church under the authority of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
