Who We Are

Encounter, Equip, Engage

We are a community of believers who passionately impact our generation by encountering God, equipping believers and engaging our world.

What We Believe

There is one God: The Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit; who subsist in unity, and also as three separate distinct Persons.

Jesus Christ is God's Son. He was born of a virgin as both God and man, lived a sinless life, died to atone for the sins of human beings, was buried, arose from the grave, ascended into heaven and will literally return to earth.

The Holy Spirit is the divine helper, assistant, counselor and instructor and His work is to reveal Christ, convict of sin, lead to repentance, guide believers, comfort, strengthen, and sanctify the soul.

The Bible is God's Holy Word, without error, and is the sole authority for life.

Human beings are the special creations of God, made in His image. They fell through the sin of the first man, Adam, and all human beings are sinners in need of salvation.

Salvation is a gift through repentance toward God and faith in Jesus Christ. Every person who truly is saved is eternally secure in the Lord Jesus Christ and will spend eternity in heaven, while those who die in their sins will spend eternity in hell.

Baptism is by immersion after salvation and is done in obedience to Jesus Christ's command.

Each believer has direct access to God through the Lord Jesus Christ.

The church is a local body of baptized believers with the Lord Jesus Christ as the Head.

First Baptist Church Grapevine is a Southern Baptist church. Southern Baptists are passionate about teaching the Bible accurately, reaching the world with the gospel of Jesus Christ and providing support to missionaries locally, nationally and internationally.



We are proud of our history in Grapevine. Since 1854, the men and women who started the church in the home of Uncle Nathan Hudgins to the men of women of today, the church has always had the vision of impacting the community for Christ.

Today, we reach people from all over the DFW area, but the church will always be linked to those beginning roots. From the first red brick building built on the corner of Wall and Church streets to the beautiful Worship Center opened in 1995, the doors of FBC Grapevine have been open to anyone who is looking for a relationship with Jesus Christ.

As the church celebrates our role in making Grapevine one of the most attractive places to live, we are looking toward the future with new challenges and opportunities to reach the community with the life-changing message of Jesus Christ.
