About

We are excited to introduce to you the ministries and people of Bayou Drive Baptist Church.  We're here in this community because we love Alvin and its people.  More importantly, Jesus loves the people of Alvin and is using His Church to spread the message of His good news.

A Little History...

Bayou Drive Baptist Mission began on July 27, 1965 as a mission of Southview Missionary Baptist Church of Houston. Bro. Horace Hobbs was the mission's pastor, and the first service was held in Horace and Mary Hobbs' home with ten people present. The first soul saved at the Mission was Mrs. Patricia Garrett. Mrs. Garret was saved in the morning worship service on August 1, 1965, just two weeks after The Mission began.

The first baptism of The Mission was also Mrs. Garrett, for which Central Baptist Church in Texas City gave the use of their baptistry on September 5th. The Mission's heart for missionaries began beating on March 6, 1966 as they voted to begin supporting home and foreign missionaries. The Mission was renamed by vote on November 6, 1966, and became Bayou Drive Baptist Church. The church was formally organized on June 18, 1967.

Who Are We Now?...

Our church consists of several different nationalities as well as a membership of people across all age groups. We maintain a strong emphasis in expository Bible preaching that is relevant to the lives and circumstances of all who gather for worship. We are continually working to hold fast to the traditions that are healthy while following the leadership of the Holy Spirit to make us flexible to change in areas that make us more like Christ.
