Our Mission

The First Baptist Church of Hamilton, Texas is a diverse family of First Baptist Church
believers unified in Jesus Christ and empowered by the Holy Spirit to
glorify God through worship, missions, the study and sharing of holy Sunday, March 1, 2009
Scriptures and loving service to all people.

How to Join the First Baptist Family


By Baptism—If one professes faith in Jesus Christ as Savior, the church
may receive that person as a candidate for church membership through
believer’s baptism. If you are a member of another denomination and
have never been baptized, or have been baptized in a mode other than
immersion, the church may receive you for membership through
baptism.

By Transfer of Membership—The church may receive a person as a


member upon transfer of membership from a Baptist church of like
belief. We will be happy to arrange for this transfer.

By Statement—If you are a member of another denomination,


membership does not transfer from one denomination to another. You
may join by your statement, which is your testimony of your acceptance
of Christ as Savior and your Scriptural baptism by immersion.
