FOUNDATION is the College Ministry of First Baptist Church Texarkana. If you are a College student who is looking for a place to plug in while attending College, then Foundation is a place for you. Or if you are a college student looking to learn more about Christianity, Jesus, the Bible, etc., then we believe Foundation is a place for you. We believe that through life on life relationships and discipleship, that students can build a strong, healthy, and firm foundation in Christ that impacts the rest of their life. Foundation exists to:
Connect College students to Jesus, but also one another. This includes weekly events for fellowship, along with opportunities for someone who is investigating Jesus to come and learn more about what it means to follow Jesus.
Equip College students in practical ways to grow in your relationship with Christ while you are in school. We want to help you better know Jesus and make Him known to others. There are weekly small groups that you can get plugged into for discipleship, fellowship, and accountability.
Mobilize College students into opportunities post-grad. We want you to flourish in your relationship with Jesus long after college, regardless of the career path you choose. We want to serve you and help you tread the sometimes murky and difficult waters of adjusting to life after college.
We spend much of our time on the campuses of Texas A&M - Texarkana along with Texarkana College. We want to be where the students are, so we will have weekly and monthly events to serve college students. The best way to stay updated on all of our events is to follow our social media pages. We will post frequently to inform students of the various events and bible studies we have available throughout the Fall & Spring semesters.
