We follow God’s call to be kind, compassionate and to love each other as He loves us.

  1. God, who is Himself Truth and speaks truth only, has inspired the Bible. It is the only completely trustworthy, divine authority in all matters including love, truth, redemption, morality and proper conduct. It is to be believed in all it affirms, obeyed in all it requires, and embraced in all that it promises.
  2. There is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
  3. We are commanded to love everyone. As a result, we should examine ourselves first to avoid judging others by a standard to which we do not hold ourselves. Christians are held to a higher standard of obedience to the Bible than those who do not claim to be Christians.
  4. Because we have all sinned, we are all in need of salvation.
  5. God sent His Son to become man to pay the penalty for our sins by His shed blood in death on the cross and to be raised back to life that we might be redeemed. God’s forgiveness extends to all of those who believe in Christ’s finished work on the cross as the sole remedy for their sins. This forgiveness of our past, present and future sins should result in compassion for others who are enslaved to sin while repenting of our own sins so that we can lead holy lives that glorify God.
  6. Only those who place their faith in Jesus Christ are saved by faith and will spend eternity in heaven. Those who do not will be eternally separated from Him.
  7. Jesus was fully God and fully man, virgin-born, and sinless. He will personally return in power and glory.
  8. Believers in our Lord Jesus Christ are called to be united in the Holy Spirit.

This Statement of Faith does not exhaust the extent of our beliefs. For purposes of Hope Media Group’s faith, doctrine, practice, policy and discipline, our Board of Directors is HMG’s final interpretive authority on the Bible’s meaning and application.

Food for the Hungry


Food for the Hungry is a Christian humanitarian aid and global development organization that designs, develops and delivers solutions for more than 50 years so that children, families and communities can flourish. Collaborating with local leaders across sectors, we co-create solutions that build resilience by strengthening mental, physical and spiritual well-being. We serve nearly 10 million people in 18 countries so that communities have the agency and resources necessary to realize their God-given potential.


We’re moved and inspired by our Christian belief that every person has intrinsic value, and that it’s our responsibility to advocate for the poor and marginalized without regard to race, creed or nationality and without adverse distinction of any kind. We serve on the basis of need alone. We strive to respect the culture and customs of the people we serve in order to preserve their humanity and dignity.

Communities are transformed when there is trust. With a shared set of values and a deep commitment to our partners, we believe mindsets shift and relationships strengthen — with God, self, others and nature — to build and maintain lasting networks of resilience.


The underlying causes of poverty, injustice and marginalization are complex and often interconnected. That’s why our partnerships with local communities and leaders reach across the full range of economic, social, spiritual, and cultural interests, bringing everyone to the table to create comprehensive solutions that endure. When communities have both the agency to make their own decisions and access to needed resources, they can realize their full potential.


We are a Christian relief and development organization with a vision to see all forms of human poverty ended worldwide. For more than 50 years, our international staff are motivated by their Christian faith, and are called to serve where they are. In fact, 99% of our staff work in their country of origin.

We put service above self, empowering communities to create solutions that address their needs today and advance a better tomorrow.


In 1971, Dr. Larry Ward founded Food for the Hungry (FH) based on a simple premise: if children died one at a time, he could help them one at a time. Our organization’s name, Food for the Hungry, was inspired by Psalm 146:7, which reads: “He upholds the cause of the oppressed and gives food to the hungry. The Lord sets prisoners free.”


The world has made great advances in reducing poverty over the past few decades, but it is becoming more difficult to reach the most vulnerable. Overlapping crises of the pandemic, climate change and disasters, inflation, conflict, and global food insecurity are having the greatest impact on the most vulnerable people in the hardest places. These challenges call for our resilience approach to eradicating extreme poverty.


We proudly adhere to the Red Cross Code of Conduct to ensure beneficiaries receive the best quality assistance. We are a charter member of the Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability (ECFA), and share our financial statements publicly. We protect the vulnerable populations we serve through safeguarding.

Grace Fellowship


It is the VISION of Grace Fellowship Church to be a HOUSE OF PRAYER FOR ALL NATIONS.

It is the MISSION of Grace Fellowship Church to make disciples who make disciples.

Houston's First Baptist Church


Relevant Biblical Community

Houston's First is a thriving and diverse community of real people experiencing real life together. Sundays are a time where we gather together to grow and give of what we have, but our lives consist of much more than attending church on Sunday. We want to be the church every day of the week.


God does exist. There is only one God, in fact — and He is the Creator of everything.

We’re made in His image, which means we’re like Him in many ways, except that He’s God and we’re not. He’s loving and just and desires a relationship with us. As individuals with free will, we have the freedom to respond to the relationship God’s initiated with us, or not.

We’re free to choose to live outside the realm of the life God has for us as it’s explained in the Bible. Put another way, many choices we make either move us closer to God or further away from Him. Making even seemingly small decisions that separate us from God is called sin. We all do it, and we’ll continue to do so. And, even then, God will love us and passionately pursue us.

God loves us so much, in fact, that He sent his only son, Jesus, to die so the rest of us could live. The cost of sin was separation from God—spiritual death—until Jesus came and His death paid everyone’s debt. That’s serious love. Because of that serious, perfect love, this gift from God is waiting for anyone who wants to receive it. This is called Grace. God gives grace freely and abundantly.

As for us, we need only to decide whether or not to believe and receive these truths. If we decide to believe it, we have available to us a new, full life that can start now and never stop. And it’s OK to have a lot of questions along the way. Although God reveals things to us (including what He’s revealed about Himself in the Bible), He remains mysterious and wonderful.

Houston's First Baptist Church's beliefs are the same as those contained in the Baptist Faith and Message, the confession of faith of the Southern Baptist Convention (SBC). On June 14, 2000, the SBC adopted a revised summary of our faith. The committee's report says in part:

Baptists cherish and defend religious liberty, and deny the right of any secular or religious authority to impose a confession of faith upon a church or body of churches. We honor the principles of soul competency and the priesthood of believers, affirming together both our liberty in Christ and our accountability to each other under the Word of God.

Baptist churches, associations, and general bodies have adopted confessions of faith as a witness to the world, and as instruments of doctrinal accountability. We are not embarrassed to state before the world that these are doctrines we hold precious and as essential to the Baptist tradition of faith and practice.

As a committee, we have been charged to address the 'certain needs' of our own generation. In an age increasingly hostile to Christian truth, our challenge is to express the truth as revealed in Scripture, and to bear witness to Jesus Christ, who is 'the Way, the Truth, and the Life.'

The 1963 committee rightly sought to identify and affirm 'certain definite doctrines that Baptists believe, cherish, and with which they have been and are now closely identified.' Our living faith is established upon eternal truths. 'Thus this generation of Southern Baptists is in historic succession of intent and purpose as it endeavors to state for its time and theological climate those articles of the Christian faith which are most surely held among us.'

It is the purpose of this statement of faith and message to set forth certain teachings which we believe.

Katy Christian Ministries


How We Serve the Community

We are a Social Service non-profit serving Katy/West Houston. We have Social Service Departments that offer emergency financial assistance, Food Pantry, a Crisis Center that houses the Domestic Abuse Center and the Sexual Assault Center, and Resale Stores / Donation Centers.

How it all Began

In the early 1980’s, Katy area churches struggled to meet the changing needs of a rapidly growing population.  With the downturn in the Houston economy, members of the Katy Ministerial Alliance realized that Katy churches were increasingly being asked by long time residents as well as newcomers to provide food and emergency financial resources.  First United Methodist Church of Katy housed a food pantry in the church basement, and St. Bartholomew Catholic Church opened a thrift store at Avenue D and 4th Street.  It was decided a unified effort would offer a more effective use of their resources, and on June 25, 1984, nine interdenominational churches incorporated as Katy Christian Ministries.  Currently, KCM has 65 Coalition Churches and numerous business and community partners.

In 1994 land was donated to KCM for a new operational facility.  Hope for the future became a reality on February 26, 2003, when KCM had a ground breaking for their new facility.  On August 14, 2004, KCM took occupancy at 5011 E. Fifth St., Katy TX 77493.

In 2009 KCM was contacted by some churches in the Fulshear/Simonton area inquiring about our services. After much prayer and with the support of the community and churches KCM opened their doors for service in Fulshear serving Fulshear, Simonton & Wallis areas in December 2009.

We are currently located at3506 Porter Road, Katy, TX 77493.  This location houses Administration, Social Services, Domestic Abuse Center, and Sexual Abuse Center.  In the same building at 5510 First Street, you will find the KCM Food Pantry, and the KCM Resale Store.  KCM benefits clients in the Katy/West Houston  area, by providing all services in one location.  The service area covered by KCM reaches into three counties, Harris, Fort Bend and Waller.

KCM services are offered to everyone in our community regardless of any religious background or affiliation. We do not require participation in any religious activities in order to receive our services.

We rely on area churches, local businesses, corporations and individuals for support.  There are many opportunities to get involved and to help us fulfill our mission.

KHCB Network


Christian radio began through the diligent efforts of a group of concerned Christians burdened to reach the growing Houston area with the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ. Several years were spent praying and also in negotiations with the FCC before a license was granted to operate non-commercial Christian radio in the Houston/Galveston area.

The first radio transmissions started on the FM band on March 9, 1962 at 10:30 P.M. The broadcasts of the Word of God were heard at 105.7 FM with a minimal power of 3,410 watts. January 21, 1964, the Lord permitted KHCB-FM to raise the effective radiated power ten times to 34,100 watts through the use of a new transmitter. This change gave much better reception across the entire broadcast area.

Volunteer Ministry

A few months after going on the air, KHCB-FM initiated a very important help to the ministry in which volunteers took over KHCB’s operations on weeknights and weekends. This gave many believers the opportunity of helping with the ministry while keeping the budget at a minimum.

Volunteers also took over the preparation of program schedules for mailing. These helpers continue to play a vital role in the operation of all stations.

Listener Financed

On August 1, 1965, Houston Christian Broadcasters, Inc., the non-profit, non-stock corporation received tax-exempt status from the IRS allowing gifts to the ministry to be income tax deductible. KHCB has never sold broadcast time or commercial spots,, and has never charged programmers for use of air-time on the station. The Lord provides the necessary income for daily operation entirely from the gifts of interested people. Because of the Lord’s provision, KHCB has been completely debt free since 1969.

Power Increase/Stereo Broadcasting

KHCB-FM began broadcasting the Word of God with the maximum authorized power of 100,000 watts in the fall and winter of 1972-73.A new, more powerful transmitter and an updated antenna were purchased and installed for this purpose through special gifts from listeners, matched by a grant from The LeTourneau Foundation.

Until 1974, KHCB-FM was broadcasting a monaural signal. At this time, the Lord allowed further improvements with the purchase of stereo broadcasting equipment. On November 10, 1974, KHCB-FM began proclaiming the Word of God in stereo.

Studio Building Constructed

In 1975, property was provided through the graciousness of one of KHCB’s Trustees to allow construction of a new studio building. All this time, KHCB-FM had been leasing office and studio space. Listeners contributed to the “Building Fund” and raised $500,000. The station moved into this new home on September 10, 1979. Dr. Theodore Epp of the “Back to the Bible” broadcast dedicated the new facility during an Open House on October 7, 1979.

Tall Tower Built

Because an increase in tall buildings around Houston was blocking the reception of its signal, KHCB’s Trustees established a tall tower antenna fund to be used to improve the transmitting site. Through listener gifts, the “Tall Tower” site went into operation on September 13, 1985, allowing communities within an 80 mile radius of Houston to hear the signal. KHCB-FM now radiates its signal from an antenna height of 1600 feet, effectively increasing its coverage area four-fold.

AM Station Acquired

The Board of Trustees of KHCB spent several years praying that the Lord would provide an AM station in order to reach the various rapidly growing ethnic groups in Houston with the Gospel in their native tongues.

In December of 1990 AM 1400, a 1000 watt AM station was purchased, and after making some necessary repairs, KHCB-Galveston began broadcasting in English on February 4, 1991. One week later, “Radio Amistad” or (Friendship Radio) began daytime Spanish broadcasts of the “Palabra de Dios” (Word of God).

KHCB-FM had aired 90 minutes of nighttime Spanish programs since 1966 but the purchase of AM 1400 in 1991 permitted the Spanish programming to be heard all day Monday through Friday. In 2017, KHCB was able to purchase an FM translator in Houston that rebroadcasts “Radio Amistad” at 101.5 FM so more parts of Houston can hear the programming. The Spanish programs were discontinued on the KHCB Network in 2018.

Chinese Bible programming began on AM 1400 on weekends in June of 1991. Programs are broadcast in two Chinese languages: Mandarin and Cantonese. The Chinese ministry also broadcasts a one hour Mandarin program on the KHCB Network Saturday at 12am Central.

Translator takes KHCB to Bryan/College Station

In June of 1994, KHCB was able to improve the reception in the Bryan/College Station area by re-broadcasting the FM signal via a translator station in Bryan, TX. This 250 watt station broadcasts at 100.9 FM and covers a 15 mile radius.

Expansion to Other Cities

Since the purchase of AM 1400 and the Bryan translator other stations have been added to the KHCB Network. Listeners have participated in the purchase of these stations through the Expansion Fund which began with Phase 1 and in 2009 entered Phase 4. All English Network programming originates at KHCB-FM Houston. It is then related via satellite to stations all across Texas and into Louisiana, Arkansas, Oklahoma, and Florida. The English Network currently includes 43 stations: 30 in Texas, 2 in Arkansas, 7 in Louisiana, 3 in Oklahoma, and 1 in Florida. Our Spanish network includes 12 outlets in Texas, 1 station in Arkansas, 1 station in Florida, and 2 stations in Louisiana.


Through modern technological advances, KHCB’s Christian message entered the world wide web in May of 2000. Listeners have sent electronic mail (e-mail) from all over the world. KHCB’s website also gives listeners the program schedule and other information pertinent to the station. This medium serves Christians living overseas as well as non-Christians living in closed countries with little or no access to the Good News.

This year (2022), KHCB is excited to be expanding our menu of digital ministries! These include the new website, creating a new God-centered lifestyle brand within KHCB called Upliftd, a new app (coming in late 2022), a new stream called Upliftd (a ‘type’ of KHCB radio targeting young and middle aged-adults), and a broadening of KHCB’s presence on social media platforms.


KHCB has an application (APP) for “smartphones” that allows users to listen to KHCB’s Bible centered programming on wireless devices. There is no charge for the application. This customized app will allow anyone with a smartphone and corresponding data plan or Wi-Fi capabilities to listen to the KHCB radio internet stream from anywhere in the world.

The Work Goes On

God in His grace has allowed the ministry to continue and expand since its inception in 1962. He has sustained the work through the gifts of concerned listeners, through the volunteer work of people dedicated to serving the Lord, and the intercessory prayers of many.

Please pray for the Trustees and for the expanding outreach of KHCB around the world. Pray that the Lord would continually guide and give wisdom to lead the station according to His will.

Second Baptist Church



“Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I commanded you; and lo, I am with you always.”

MATTHEW 28:19-20


In March 1927, Second Baptist Church was born in a prayer meeting at the old Taylor School on Louisiana Street in downtown Houston. 121 people were led by God to leave their home church and start a new congregation. From its beginning, Second has always invested in changed lives and maintained an intentional focus on reaching the world for Christ. One year later in 1928, thanks to the sacrifice of 12 faithful families who put up their homes as collateral, Second purchased the buildings of St. Paul’s Methodist Church at Milam and McGowan which would be their home for the next three decades. After decades of growth, in 1957, the church voted to move the existing campus west to 25 acres at Woodway and Voss – a move designed to reach families in the rapidly growing area west of town. A Pastor Search Committee formed in 1976 was given the responsibility of finding “a great leader with a passion for soul-winning and a heart for the city of Houston.” Their search led them to Dr. Ed Young, then a pastor in South Carolina, who accepted the call to become Second’s fifth pastor. In 1978, Dr. Young, his wife Jo Beth and their 3 sons moved to Houston. Years of incredible growth in Bible study and Worship attendance led to the construction of the current Woodway Worship Center. When the Second Family voted to undertake the initial development of a second campus at I-10 and Fry Rd in the late 1990s, Second officially became a multi-site church. In the last 15 years, we have continued to position ourselves to meet the needs of our rapidly growing city with campuses in Kingwood, Pearland, Cypress, Fulshear and even online. The Second Story is rich indeed – an amazing tapestry woven together from God’s faithfulness and people whose lives have been changed by the good news of Jesus Christ.
