We would like to welcome you to the web site of The Sovereign Grace Missionary Baptist Church of Texarkana, Texas. This church was established on October 21, 1961 by eight souls seeking to serve God, and The Lord Jesus Christ in a proper way. "God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth." John 4:24 The Sovereign Grace Missionary Baptist Church is not a church of show, she is not a church of entertainment, and she is not a church of non-biblical salvation or belief. We believe that God saves sinners by the conviction of the Holy Spirit, and the preaching of the gospel of Jesus Christ. We do not serve up entertainment nor do we offer programs to draw people. We are simple and "old fashion" Church who simple desire to worship God, edify His glorious name, and praise God for His grace and Jesus Christ for His glorious gift of His blood.

We invite all to come and worship with us, however do not expect us to change who we are. We will not change to modernism.

We believe and teach the King James Bible while you are welcome to use any bible translation you choose, we only use  we believe that the  King James Bible. We believe the scriptures both Hebrew and Greek text was properly translated for King James and completed in 1611. It took some forty translators seven years to complete the English version.   

We are a five point sovereign grace church. By this we mean we believe and teach what in known as T.U.L.I.P. that is (1.) Total Depravity, (2.) Unconditional Election, (3.) Limited Atonement, (4.) Irresistible Grace, and (5.) Perseverance of the Saints. While these doctrines have been systemized over time into these five points we believe they were taught by Jesus Christ Himself in john chapter six as well as throughout the scriptures. At one time most denominations taught these very doctrinal truths, however as time proceeded through the sixties into the Twenty-First Century most have eliminated these teachings from their teaching causing those denominations to eliminate these teachings of God and pick up the teachings of Arminianism or the teachings of mankind. god warned of this change in Romans 1:25 "Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen." While man will deny this change it is very true. Man worships man instead of God. We hear ignorant statements such as "God cannot change mans will" which is about the most unscriptural statement in religion. Another unscriptural statement is salvation is a decision on your part, a choice, or that it is all up to you. none of these quotes are scriptural in any way or in any part. They have totally eliminated the sovereignty of God and made man the sovereign one, changing the truth into a lie. God said of salvation in John 6:44 "No man can come to me, except the Father which hath sent me draw him..." You cannot worship God out of truth, come worship with us and hear the old and continued truths of the bible without change.

We believe in the Local New Testament Church. We believe the church is a succession through time as an independent body of believers in Jesus Christ assembled together by God for the purpose of worship and praise of God. We believe a church service involves, prayer, song of praise, and the sermon. Church is not about programs, it is all about the worship of God in Spirit and Truth. While we do not judge those who come or those who are members, we do expect our membership to abide and live their life as close to the scriptures as possible. We do believe in expulsion and believe it is scripturally demanded.  1 Corinthians 5:7 "Purge out therefore the old leaven, that ye may be a new lump, as ye are unleavened. For even Christ our passover is sacrificed for us:" Church members are not allowed to act as they please and call themselves church members.

Now that you know who we are, please come and worship with us. Learn the Sovereign Grace of God, it will do thee good.


A Brief  History Of Our Church.

The Sovereign Grace Missionary Baptist Church was established in Texarkana, Texas in on October 21, 1961 under the authority of the Tabernacle Baptist Church in Tulsa Oklahoma. The charter membership was eight souls and they were Brother A. C. Bookout, Sister Juanita Bookout, Brother O. E. Beck, Brother James A. Fredrick, Sister Wanda Fredrick, Brother A. B. Harris, Sister Rosie Harris, Brother Alonzo Hicks, and Sister Jamie Hicks. The church then elected to call Elder Ronnie L. Forsythe from Houston, Texas as their first Pastor. Elder Forsythe accepted the call then he and his wife Sister Patsy S. Forsythe joined the church as Pastor and wife. The churches name was Tabernacle Baptist church named after her mother church in Tulsa, Oklahoma. On April 5, 1978 the church voted to change the churches name from Tabernacle to Sovereign Grace Missionary Church as it remains today.

The church remains a five point (or what is known as T.U.L.I.P) Sovereign Grace Baptist Church today. We are also a "Landmark" church which believes Jesus Christ started the first church at Jerusalem during His earthly ministry. As a local New Testament Church. We believe it is our duty to the Lord Jesus Christ to follow the examples of old and remain in the teachings of Gods word and not to wonder or to be in error by modernizing to the point of changing the truth of the bible to satisfy people. We believe a church is recognized by authority and by doctrine and we believe this church satisfies both.
  The Church Today

The church today still believes and teaches the doctrine of her beginning. We still believe in a Sovereign God that always governs as He wills, He still saves lost sinners, He still builds the churches as He pleases. We are still a Independent, five point Sovereign Grace Missionary Baptist Church. We are not ashamed of our doctrine or our ways of teaching, we also know that some people cannot adhere or like these teachings and that alright. We invite all people to attend our services so if you would like to attend please do so.
