About FBC Loeb
"Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for he who promised is faithful."
The First Baptist Church of Loeb had its beginning in 1934. In May of that year, thirteen members met in the Loeb school house to organize and found a Baptist Church for the community. The property and most of the building materials were donated and the members themselves built the church. The church was completed in November of 1934 and first services were held.
During the 1960's the education building was built and in May of 1989 our present sanctuary was completed and dedicated to the Lord.
In August of 2017 Hurricane Harvey hit Southeast Texas. During that time the entire facility was underwater. However, due to God's faithfulness we were able to rebuild the entire church and as of January of 2020 we are completely debt free.
What We Believe
What we believe here at First Baptist Church Loeb has been laid out in the Baptist Faith and Message.
I. Scripture: We believe the Bible was written by men divinely inspired and is God's revelation of Himself to man.It has God for its author, salvation for its end, and truth, without any mixture of error, for its matter. Therefore scripture is totally true and trustworthy.
II. God: There is one and only one living and true God.The eternal triune God reveals Himself to us as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, with distinct personal attributes, but without division of nature, essence, or being.
III. Salvation: Salvation involves the redemption of the whole man, and is offered freely to all who accept Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior, who by His own blood obtained eternal redemption for the believer. In its broadest sense salvation includes regeneration, justification, sanctification, and glorification. There is no salvation apart from personal faith in Jesus Christ as Lord.
