Houston Baptist Church
Celebrating 169 Years of God's Faithfulness
On August 18, 1853, a group of Swedish immigrants gathered to worship for the first time in Houston, MN, having left their homeland to seek religious freedom and the ability to worship God according to the dictates of their own conscience. In our 169 year history, our priorities have not changed. We are a Bible-centered, Christ-exalting, and missions-oriented congregation that meets regularly for worship, study, and fellowship. We invite you to join us.
Much of our energy as a church is given to the ministry of prayer. If you have a need in your life, go to the menu at the top of the page and complete the simple prayer request form. Or you may call us at 507-896-3430, option 3 to access our "Prayerline."
As you explore our website, we hope that you will have your questions answered and your faith will be strengthened.
May God richly bless you!
Faith Builder Verse of the Week
Philippians 3:7-10 (ESV)
But whatever gain I had, I counted as loss for the sake of Christ. Indeed, I count everything as loss because of the surpassing worth of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord. For his sake I have suffered the loss of all things and count them as rubbish, in order that I may gain Christ and be found in him, not having a righteousness of my own that comes from the law, but that which comes through faith in Christ, the righteousness from God that depends on faith, that I may know him and the power of His resurrection, and may share His sufferings, becoming like Him in His death, that by any means possible I may attain the resurrection from the dead.
