First Baptist Church Round Rock, Round Rock – Vision:

First Baptist Church Round Rock, Round Rock – Origin:
God set in motion His plan for First Baptist Church of Round Rock more than a century ago.
In 1847, two years after Texas became a state, the Baptist Mission Board of New York sent four young men, fresh out of seminary and on fire for the Lord, to Texas to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ “in the wilderness”.
The men first settled in an area located on the banks of Brushy Creek.
One of the men, R.H. Taliaferro, of Kentucky, participated in a revival in Huntsville.
One revival attendee has been quoted as saying, “I heard R.H. Talaiferro again in the great revival . . . at Huntsville.
In one of his powerful sermons, General Sam Houston, General Davis, and a number of leading citizens were powerfully convicted, and during the meeting of twenty-five days, over one hundred and twenty souls were saved.”
In December of 1847, Taliaferro preached the first Baptist sermon on record in Williamson County.
In 1848, a group of ten or twelve families organized a missionary Baptist church in the Round Rock area.
Robert Taliaferro became its first pastor.
