A Family Integrated Reformed Church
Waco Family Baptist Church has a distinctive focus on God and the Bible. We follow the Regulative Principle of Worship which teaches that the Bible orders public worship. We believe that God desires to be worshipped rightly as He has outlined in the Bible. Therefore, our tenents include expository preaching, prayer, scripture reading, and the singing of hymns and spiritual songs.
Another distinctive of Waco Family Baptist Church is that we hold in principle and practice to the 1689 London Baptist Confession of Faith which reflects the Biblical teaching of our reformed beliefs. As a Southern Baptist Church, we also hold to the Baptist Faith and Message of 2000.
Family is central to the Bible and serves as a living example of how God relates to His church and His children. Families are being torn apart and separated everywhere around us, but Waco Family Baptist Church seeks to unite families in worship, in the home, and in relationship to God. We do not have a children's or youth department, and we have no nursery or age-graded Sunday School classes. We learn, worship, and play together. Those with small children can expect to be assisted by others in the church that have none, and there is a cry-room for those times when a child has to be taken out for feeding or changing. Using the Bible as the guidebook and Christ as the example, Waco Family Baptist Church is seeing God build strong Christian families making a difference in Waco, Texas.
We seek to glorify God and exalt Jesus Christ through corporate worship. In order to build up one another through intentional fellowship, we gather together for lunch each Sunday after the worship service, and our desire is to be actively engaged in disciple-making through all of our relationships and activities.
O praise the LORD, all ye nations: praise Him all ye people. For His merciful kindness is great toward us: and the truth of the LORD endureth forever. Praise ye the LORD. - Psalm 117:1-2
