HSBC began in October 2002 as a new church with a desire to reach the lost, love the unwanted, and make mature disciples. We are unique in our area in that we offer something for everyone. Our congregation is made up largely of people who are centered
in Baptist theology. HSBC is located in East Texas piney woods northeast of Nacogdoches situated near new Lake Naconiche. The congregation comes from surrounding small rural communities and Nacogdoches, home of Stephen F Austin University.
Our current attendance averages 250, and there is great potential for growth.
