We Are Texas Baptists Committed

We are Texas Baptists Committed! Our purpose is to promote a Baptist vision built upon the historic Baptist principles of religious liberty, cooperative missional involvement, and biblical justice.
  • We serve as a resource for local churches by assisting them in educating their congregations concerning historical and current issues pertaining to Baptists.
  • We support pastorless churches as they search for a new pastor.
  • We work to promote the ministries of Baptist organizations through education and the denominational process.
  • We work through seminary and university networks that support the organization's stated purpose and mission.
  • We maintain an online presence that offers helpful resources:
    • Schedule of events
    • Electronic community comprising blogs and social networks
    • Articles addressing current issues
    • Regular distribution of an electronic newsletter (coming soon)
Texas Baptists Committed is leading the way in all things Baptist! We have been working with the collegiate department of the Baptist General Convention of Texas (BGCT) to educate and encourage young leaders about historic Baptist principles; because of our work, new materials are being produced for collegiate ministries on campuses across Texas.

We have been supporting and helping local congregations who are without a pastor. We have produced various resources for search committees and worked with churches to help them to find pastors who will affirm and strengthen their Baptist identity.

We have updated our Web site and brought a diversity of new members onto our Board of Directors. Texas Baptists Committed is moving forward to encourage and empower all Texas Baptists.

Moved by a deep sense of biblical justice, we are helping to promote and support the Texas Baptist Offering for World Hunger, TexasHope 2010, and the work of the Texas Baptist Christian Life Commission. Texas Baptists are a missional people, and Texas Baptists Committed is working diligently to support and educate congregations concerning the mission endeavors of the BGCT.

We cannot do any of this alone. We need your prayers, your support, and your help. Together, we will ensure the continued strength of Texas Baptists for generations to come.
