Values and Vision
The SBTC exists to facilitate, extend and enlarge the Great Commission ministries of the Southern Baptist Convention and Southern Baptist churches and associations of Texas, upon the authority of God's inerrant Word to the glory of God the father, under the Lordship of Jesus Christ, and by the empowerment of the Holy Spirit.
- Affirmation of a minimal set of doctrinal beliefs.
- Biblical inerrancy is the foundational element.
- Churches working together in mutual accountability.
- A focus on missions and evangelism in budgeting and staffing priorities.
- Networking and using volunteers and paid consultants to keep bureaucracy to a minimum.
- Striving to resource the needs of SBTC churches rather than to direct their ministries.
- Partnership with the Southern Baptist Convention through the traditional Cooperative Program.
- Utilizing the resources of the SBC agencies to maximize the ministry effectiveness of SBTC.
A key indicator of our values are the opinions expressed through resolutions. Every year, the messengers to the Southern Baptist Convention, and those to the Southern Baptists of Texas Convention, approve resolutions that express their opinions on diverse timely issues.
