Texas Baptists is a movement of God’s people to share Christ and show love by strengthening churches and ministers, engaging culture, and connecting the nations to Jesus.
Our driving passion is to follow the LORD’s call to fulfill the Great Commission “to share Christ” and the Great Commandment “to show love.” The Great Commission and the Great Commandment form the two “GCs,” or GC2. We welcome the opportunity to collaborate with like-minded Christians across Texas and beyond through this exciting organic movement.
SUMMARY OF FAITH
THE GC2 MOVEMENT AFFIRMS
That there is one God who is revealed in three persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit;
That Jesus Christ is the Head of the church;
The virgin birth of Christ, the eternal Son of God, who died for the sins of the world, was resurrected the third day, ascended to heaven, and is coming back;
That the Bible is God’s Word and truth without mixture of error;
That salvation is by grace alone, through faith alone, in Christ alone;
The Priesthood of every believer and of all believers;
The urgent need to reach the lost with the good news of Jesus;
The sanctity of human life from conception to natural death;
That gender is a gift from God, at birth, who creates every person, of every race, male or female, in the Divine image and likeness;
That all people, fearfully and wonderfully made by God, have inherent dignity and inestimable worth and are to be treated with Christlike love;
That biblical marriage is one man and one woman in a covenant relationship with the Lord and with one another;
