Above all, Texas Baptists seek to reach people for Christ, reaching out to those around them who have yet to embrace the hope of Christ.
When we discover an unreached group, we often attempt to start a church there. The BGCT puts a lot of its resources into church starting, and many people come to know Christ as a result of those efforts.
If you’re curious about what’s going on in new churches, check out the BGCT’s new church starting blog by clicking here. All the stories they’ve posted so far are great, but I really like the picture above that comes from Austin City Life Church. It is the congregation’s first baptism. It’s great to see their excitement as God moves around and through them.
