ABOUT US


We are a non-denominational Bible church located in Hico, Texas. We are steadily growing, but we maintain our small-town feel. Our facility is across from City Hall in the heart of downtown, surrounded by local shops and dining. We love our town, our people, and the God who created us all.

WHY WE EXIST

The aim of GBF can be summed up in this: know God and make Him known. Rather than coming up with great human ideas for how to accomplish this, we simply watch and wait to see where God is already working in and around us. When He makes that evident, then we join Him in that work.


FOCUS ON THE WORD

We are encouraged to meditate on God's Word (Joshua 1:8), and the Great Commission tells us to teach it to others (Matthew 28:18-20). We strongly believe that spending time in God's Word is one way we abide in Him and become more like Christ. We strongly believe that if we follow the Word that we will grow stronger as a community, and close to God.

FOCUS ON GOD

God speaks to us through His Word, but He invites us to commune with Him through prayer as well. Keeping an open dialogue with God throughout the day helps us stay connected to The Vine (John 15:5). We understand that prayer is a lifestyle, not simply a one-time conversation with our Maker. We strive to turn to prayer as a first resort, whether in times of trouble or of plenty.

FOCUS ON EACH OTHER

The Word tells us that we must put the principles we read into practice (James 1:22). The Great Commandment is to love God AND our "neighbor" (Matthew 22:37-39). We enjoy fellowship at GBF, especially through our community-building Journey Groups. On a more global scale, we branch out by supporting domestic and foreign missions like Adult & Teen Challenge and Compassion.
