FIRST BAPTIST CHURCH
HICO, TEXAS
 

History        

 

            Under a brush arbor, November 26, 1881, the First Baptist Church of Hico, Texas was organized at its present site by the Reverend J.P. Grammer and Reverend L.R. Scruggs, with 28 charter members, most of which were from the Mt. Zion Baptist Church of old Hico, which had been organized in 1861.  After moving to the new town site, the church ordained its first deacons, John C. Hutchinson and Thomas S. Solomon on April 2, 1882.

 

           

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

           

 

 

 The organizations of the church include a Music Ministry, Women’s Ministry, a Children’s Ministry and an active Youth ministry. There are Bible Studies and Sunday-School classes for all ages.  The congregation supports the Cooperative Program, Missions, and was instrumental in starting a Hispanic Church in Hico.  The church is continually blessed with offerings of time, resources and love from members and other benefactors. 

The church began construction on a church building in 1884, but a storm blew it down in June 1885 before it was completed.  In 1886, the church erected a new building, which served until 1963, when a totally new facility was constructed.  This building was dedicated on March 8, 1964.  Eventually, through gifts and purchases, the church was able to acquire the entire block, and in the year 2000 completed an extension that includes additional classrooms, kitchen, a large fellowship hall, and a multipurpose center.  In 2007, the R.A.N.C.H. (Reaching and Nurturing Children’s Hearts) Pre-school was formed to meet the needs of the community and provide a Christian learning environment for children.  .
