Who We Are
Downsville Baptist Church is a group of people who love Christ. We love Waco. We desire to make Jesus shine brightly in Waco and beyond.
The Gospel is our identity. It leads us in everything we do. As Waco continues to grow, we long to make Jesus famous and love anyone who wants to know more about Christ. We are here because Christ loved us first; served us first; and saved us. We want everyone here to know Who He is , what He is like, and how He loves us.
Make Disciples Who Make Disciples for the glory of God. Jesus commands us to make disciples. This is our heart. We want the Gospel to spread throughout Waco so that people will not only have the heart to follow Christ, but that they desire to see others come to know Him, treasure Him, and pursue Him.
What We Believe
The Bible tells us there is Good News for bad people. In a world that is full of sin and bad news, we are constantly looking for good to replace it. The Gospel of Jesus Christ is the good news our sinful hearts need.
