What We Believe

First Baptist Church Waco exists to lead all generations to love God, one another and the world in the Spirit of Jesus.


First Baptist Waco is rooted deeply in historic Baptist faith.  Central to our historic faith is the belief that every individual has the God-given competency to know God and God's will.  Church members are encouraged to interpret the Bible in the context of community as they seek to follow God.  While we do not have a formal creed, the 1963 Baptist Faith and Message is a statement of faith to which we most closely align.
