Church Motto: Connecting Life and Faith

We know there needs to be evidence of our beliefs in our daily lives and are striving to be people that show that.  Though we fall short at times, our hearts' desire is to live lives that honor Christ.


We Believe:

  • Christ is the head of the church (Eph. 4:15-16, Eph. 1:22-23)
  • In the Bible (2 Tim. 3:16-17)
  • In the virgin birth of Christ, that He died for our sins, and that He was resurrected (Isaiah 7:14, Matt. 1:18, 2 Cor. 5:15, Rom. 5:8-9, Matt. 28:5, 1 Cor. 15:20-22)
  • In the Priesthood of each believer and of all believers (Gal. 3:28, Heb. 7:25-28, 1 Tim. 2:5, John 16:13)
  • Salvation comes from Jesus Christ alone (Rom. 3:23, John 3:16-17, Rom. 6:23, 1 Peter 3:18, John 1:12-13, Rom. 10:9-10, 13)
  • In reaching a lost and hurting world (Luke 19:10, John 17:20-21, 2 Cor. 5:18-19)
  • In the sanctity of human life (Gen. 1:27, Eph. 2:10, Ps. 139:13-16, James 1:27)
  • Marriage between a man and a woman is the proper context for sex (Matt. 19:4-5, Mark 10:6-9, 1 Cor. 7:2)

We believe the following as listed in the 1963 Baptist Faith and Message statement of faith:

We support mission work through the Blanco Baptist Association, BGCT, and the SBC.


Three Circles Evangelism

This tool provides a method of turning everyday conversations about brokenness into everyday conversations about Christ. 

The goal of ‘3 Circles’ is to equip Christians to share their faith with non-Christians.

Overview of 3 circles: 

 All you need to have is a pen and paper, or napkin, or hand! 


Step 1- Draw a circle and label it “Brokenness”. Draw several squiggly arrows out from it and looping back to ‘Brokenness’. We are trying to show no matter what we do it just boomerangs back to brokenness. 

Conversation Example: “We live in a world of brokenness, full of hurting people hurting each other. We try escaping brokenness by focusing on careers, gaining money, overachieving, drugs, gambling, or alcohol. But all this just leads to greater brokenness. I overachieved and had a long string of failed relationships. But in the end, I just felt more pain.” 


Step 2- On the left, draw a second circle, and write “God’s Design” above. 

Conversation Example: “Brokenness was not God’s original design! God’s design was perfect, like Himself, with no brokenness present.” (Draw heart to symbolize God’s love). 


Step 3- Draw an arrow from God’s Design to Brokenness and label it “Sin”. 

Conversation Example: “Each of us has rebelled against God and walked away from His perfect design. The Bible calls this sin, and this leaves us in brokenness. Are you familiar with the concept of sin? Do you see this in your own life?”


Step  4- Draw a third circle below and between the first two (forming an upside-down triangle of circles), and write “Jesus” above it. 

Conversation Example: “God saw we could not escape our brokenness on our own, so God demonstrated his love towards us!” Now draw a down-arrow below Jesus’ name inside the circle. “God sent Jesus to the earth. Jesus was perfect and lived a perfect life because He was God.” Next, draw a cross next to the down-arrow. “He suffered a horrible death on a cross to take our sin upon Himself.” Next, draw an up-arrow next to the cross. “Then Jesus rose again proving that He has power over death! He’s alive!” 


Step 5- Draw a line from Brokenness to Jesus, draw a king’s crown and write Turn and Believe (or follow). 

Conversation Example: “Jesus tells all people to repent and turn from your sins. He also tells us to believe that He died for your sin and that God raised Him from the dead and to follow Jesus as king of your life. Jesus promises that if you do that you will be forgiven and restored back to God’s design!”


Step 6- Draw a line from Jesus to God’s Design and label it “Restored.” 

Conversation Example: “If we turn and believe in Jesus we can leave this world of brokenness and be restored into a relationship with God and pursue His design.” 


Step 7- Draw a line from God’s Design to Brokenness and write “Go” above it. 

Conversation Example: “More than that, God then sends us back into this “Brokenness” to tell others about the good news of Jesus Christ.” 


Step 8- After the Diagram is drawn 

Conversation Example: Ask them, “Where do you see yourself? Are you in God’s perfect design or are you currently in brokenness?” 

There answer to this will help you understand where they see themselves in relation to God and give them an opportunity to respond to follow Jesus. This can be followed by your testimony.
