Who We Are
Comfort Baptist Church is not (just) a building.
-A community of joyful believers who recognize God’s great gift of salvation through Jesus Christ and our purpose in God’s plan for the world.
-100+ members of all ages, from young children to senior adults.
-4 staff members, 12 deacons, with active committees, ministry teams, and numerous volunteers.
-Founded as First Baptist Church of Comfort in 1936.
-Committed to growing together as disciples of Jesus Christ through worship, prayer, Bible Study, fellowship, evangelism, and mutual encouragement.
-Serious about making disciples. Our mission is to be a disciple-making church,
committed to being disciples who exercise their faith in practical ways and who intentionally make disciples.
-Spiritually diverse. We are all at different places in our journey of faith. Some are
seekers, some are mature believers, some are Bible scholars, and some are just beginning to explore God’s Word. No matter where you are in your spiritual journey, you are an important part of our church body, and we desire to help you grow.
-A welcoming church. We are not an exclusive club. We welcome all people who wish to grow in their understanding and pursue a deeper, more fulfilling relationship with God and with the Lord Jesus Christ.
-Autonomous in government, but we have a strong denominational affiliation with our national (SBC) and state conventions (Texas Baptists).
-On mission. We recognize that our commissioning from the Lord is not to “come and sit,” but to “go and do.” We are not called to be consumers, but to be servants who seek to meet the needs of fellow churches members as people and families in our local community.
