We began in May of 2005 with a group of about 18-20 people, meeting at the Van Community Center on Sunday mornings.  We have grown in the last 9 and 1/2 years to a membership of about 26, with an average Sunday morning attendance of about 40 people.  We are committed to the doctrines of grace, with our confession being the 1689 (2nd London) Baptist confession of faith.  In 2007 we joined ARBCA (the Association of Reformed Baptist Churches in America) and are a part of the regional TAARBC (Texas Area Association of Reformed Baptist Churches).  We have recently purchased a building in downtown Van, and look forward to being a more visible and effective witness in Van to the glorious grace of our Loving God.
