Our story began in 1888 as Missionary Baptist Church and we have had the mission and privilege of serving Royse City for over a century. The current building was built in 2008 and we hope it remains a place where the people of Royse City meet and grow to love Jesus Christ.

B. Significance: Baptism publicly identifies you with Jesus Christ, who is now your Lord. It is your public testimony to everyone of your inner commitment of renouncing your old life of self-centeredness and, in response to the invitation of the Lord Jesus Christ, joining yourself to Him. You are saying you belong to Jesus Christ and are committing your life to serving Him. It is not a requirement for salvation, but it is commanded for all those who have accepted Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior.
C. Symbolism: Baptism is a symbol of your commitment to Jesus Christ. Immersion provides a re-enactment of the death, burial, and resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ. It shows that you have died with Christ, have been buried with him, and are raised again to walk in newness of life. Paul described baptism in Rom. 6:4: “Therefore we have been buried with Him through baptism into death, so that as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, so we too might walk in newness of life.”
