About First Baptist Church

First Baptist Church of Houston offers a variety of programs for all ages ranging from children's church and youth ministries to Sunday School classes for every age and senior adult ministries. We meet individual needs and then worship collectively on Sunday mornings and evenings.

We are located at the corner of Hawthorn  and Airport Road and are affiliated with the Texas County Baptist Association, Missouri Baptist Convention and the Southern Baptist Convention. We were established in 1883, so we have a long history of providing ministry to our community.
