Burkett Baptist Church, located in central Texas, is an "Independent Baptist Church" which unashamedly proclaims salvation by grace through faith, in the tradition of historic Christianity: where Scripture remains the sole authority for all faith and practice; where endeavoring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace is our utmost desire; where earnest contending for the faith is exercised without being contentious; and where Christ's glory is sought in all we say and do!
We warmly invite you to come and worship with us.

Scripture of the Week
I therefore, the prisoner of the Lord, beseech you that ye walk worthy of the vocation wherewith ye are called, With all lowliness and meekness, with longsuffering, forbearing one another in love; Endeavouring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace. There is one body, and one Spirit, even as ye are called in one hope of your calling; One Lord, one faith, one baptism, One God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all. But unto every one of us is given grace according to the measure of the gift of Christ.
Quotes of the Week
There is but one God, and they that serve Him should be one. There is nothing that would render the true religion more lovely, or make more proselytes to it, than to see the professors of it tied together with the heart strings of love. If God be one, let all that profess Him be of one mind, and one heart, and thus fulfill Christ's prayer, "that they all may be one."
I do verily believe that when God shall accomplish [unity], it will be the effect of love, and not the cause of love. It will proceed from love, before it brings forth love.
"Forbearing one another in love;
Endeavoring to keep the unity of the Spirit"
We must watch -- the best of us must watch, lest we fight the Lord's battles with Satan's weapons, and so, even from love to God and His truth, violate the unity of the Spirit. The unity of the Spirit ought to be kept, dear friends, because Satan is so busy to mar it; he knows that the greatest glory of Christ will spring from the unity of His Church. "That they all may be one, as You, Father, are in Me, and I in You; that they also may be one in us: that the world may believe that You have sent Me."
