My Church

Texas Avenue Baptist Church
Pastor Eric Doucet

The most important decision anyone makes in their lives deals with one's relationship to God. I firmly believe that the one true God reveals Himself through the Bible, both the Old and New Testaments. In the Bible, God describes Himself as being perfectly Holy, Just, and Loving as well as other attributes. He also reveals that although none of us can meet His perfect standard of Holiness, we can be a part of His family through the substitutionary death, burial, and resurrection of His only begotten Son, Jesus Christ. We must only acknowledge our hopeless state and accept Christ's death as the substitute for our sins.

Once one becomes a Christian by personally accepting Jesus Christ as the payment for our sins, God does expect us to follow Him each day of our lives. One aspect of following God is to become a part of a local church through which we can both be an encouragement and help to fellow believers as well as fulfill our part in the Great Commission of Jesus Christ to take the Good News (Gospel) of Jesus Christ to every creature in the world.

To do this I am a member of Texas Avenue Baptist Church at 3400 Texas Avenue, on the feeder road just south of Deacon in College Station.
