About Texas Baptists

Texas Baptists, or the Baptist General Convention of Texas, is a state denominational convention comprised of about 5,300 affiliated congregations across Texas and beyond, more than 25 associated institutions (healthcare, human care, and education), and ministry staff of about 260 individuals. Since its inception in 1886, the convention has been actively involved in missions, evangelism, Christian education and benevolent work and ministry. Today, the driving passion of the convention is to follow the Lord’s call to fulfill the Great Commission “to share Christ” and the Great Commandments “to show love.” Together, we are sharing Christ and showing love to a lost and hurting world.
