A glimpse into the vision of Austin Baptist Church
To build a family of devoted followers of Christ that worships God, shares Christ’s hope and love, and ministers to each other’s needs.
To make believers out of unbelievers and disciples out of believers.
You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden. Nor do people light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a stand, and it gives light to all in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven.
Hope for the future
Where we're going
The first spoken words in the Bible came from God when He said, “Let there be light” (Genesis 1:3). We serve a God of light (1 John 1:5), and His heart has always been to push back darkness. Jesus was sent to this earth to shine as the Light of the World (John 8:12), and He commissioned His followers to go shine brightly for Him. ABC desires to serve as a city on a hill in Austin, Texas, shining the hope of Jesus Christ in dark places. We believe we’re called to shine in four primary ways.
God wants to light up your life, and we believe it all starts with the Word of God. ABC is firmly committed to teaching the Scriptures because it has the power to push back darkness (Psalm 119:105, Hebrews 4:12). We want to see the city of Austin become Biblically literate and fall in love with His Word.Bible Fellowship Groups
A lamp in a house is not meant to be hidden. ABC partners with parents and equips them to light up their homes for Jesus Christ. ABC loves kids, and we are committed to offering excellence in ministries for children and youth of all ages.Kids Ministries
A city on a hill cannot be hidden. Austin has thousands of unreached people, and God wants to use you to shine for him in our city. We believe your neighborhood is your first mission field, and God can use you to be a difference maker for him in your own community (2 Corinthians 5:18-20).Bless Every Home
We are a Great Commission church that wants to see the Gospel spread across the globe. We strategically partner with missionaries and ministries in our city, and around the world, so that others may give glory to our Father who is in heaven.Ministry Partners
