The museum underwent a long awaited complete remodel. The wonderful video below shows what it did look like. Come and see what it looks like now!
Houston Baptist University Rose Garden entrance to museum
Bring your church group, school group, or family to visit Texas' oldest continuously serving Baptist church. The present church dates to 1872. The pulpit furniture dates to 1852. Sam Houston was baptized here and carved his and his wife’s initials in their family pew. Baylor University and the University of Mary Hardin-Baylor began here. This church has been called the mother church of Texas Baptist because of its significance to Texas Baptist history. The museum remains free thanks to the generous support of Texas Baptists.
