We believe it is important to be up front about our beliefs so that we can better serve and minister to you.
At First Baptist Church, we feel it is important that others know what we believe as a church. These beliefs are fundamental to every ministry activity in which our members participate.

First Baptist Church chooses to relate to several different denominational and ministry groups. As Southern Baptists we believe we can do more cooperating together than we can as an individual church. Our church has also supported other significant ministries in the Crowley area. We join other churches in our area to help minister to human needs. Here, you will find the list and descriptions of our denominational affiliations as well as our Crowley area ministries we support.
The Tarrant Baptist Association includes all the churches in Tarrant county who cooperate to do ministry, mission, and church-planting all over Tarrant County.
The Baptist General Convention of Texas is comprised of about 6,000 churches all across our state that cooperate to support state Baptist universities, church-planting, Baptist health care facilities, Buckner benevolence and orphan homes, and many more incredible works. We also promote and publicize the Mary Hill Davis offering which supports mission work throughout our state. 100% of this offering is used for this purpose.
The Southern Baptist Convention involves about 30,000 churches all over the Unites States that cooperate together to plant churches, support six seminaries, and do other great work. Our church promotes and supports both the Lottie Moon Christmas offering for foreign missions as well as the Annie Armstrong Easter offering for North American missions.
The House of Hope is a Crowley ministry which helps needy people with both food and clothing. Our church as well as other churches in Crowley supports this ministry to the human needs of the people in our city. Our church also has many volunteers who work each week in the House of Hope.
The Burleson Pregnancy Aid Center assists and counsels pregnant teens with their life choices. This center supports the right to life. Our church supports them financially and also with needed items for young mothers.
First Baptist Church of Crowley marked her 100 years as a congregation of Christians in August 1996. Under our Lord’s leadership, men and women joined together to form a church in Southern Tarrant County in 1896. As the members of First Baptist Church celebrated a century of the wonderful work of our Lord, the church continues to minister in her 100 plus years with a vision of developing godly generations for the glory of God. The Lord has strategically located and gifted the church to minister to every generation from the youngest preschoolers through the eldest seniors. Our prayer for our 100 plus years asks God to bless His people with a genuine, deeply spiritual revival that will have a lasting and powerful effect well into our second century of service for our Lord. The history of our church is the story of generations of believers who have loved Jesus and sought to serve Him. We must continue to do so.
