Join us as we serve our city together, side by side as Christ's church! Each evening of Houston 1:8 - Downtown we will be working together to serve different people groups in varying ages and demographics. We'll have opportunities to utilize many different gifts in the body, ranging from steadfast prayer to hands-on projects. Come ready to serve the city we love so much!
The Downtown Campus is now gathering on Sundays at the Four Seasons Hotel at 1300 Lamar St. while the owners of 1010 Lamar repair some flooding issues in our worship center space. Watch for updates here and on social media in the weeks ahead!

DIRECTIONS FROM 1010 LAMAR
The Four Seasons is located about 0.2 miles from 1010 Lamar -- about a 4-minute walk. If you park in the garage at 1010 Lamar:
- Walk out of the garage and go left on Fannin.
- Turn right on Lamar and walk two blocks to Caroline.
- The Four Seasons Hotel is located on Lamar between Caroline & Austin.
On Sundays, look for Downtown Campus volunteers in their green Welcome Team shirts or in black t-shirts with a green church logo. They'll be stationed at key points to help you find where you're going!
Welcome to Downtown!
Downtown has come a long way since Houston's First was founded there in 1841. It's even changed since we moved from Downtown to our campus at The Loop in 1977. But one thing hasn't changed: the need for the Good News of Jesus Christ.
In 2011, Houston's First went back to where we started when we opened our Downtown Campus on the lower level of 1010 Lamar — the office tower on the block where we ministered to the city for generations and the location of HighPoint Bible Study. Between the METRORail and Discovery Green, the campus positions us to minister to residents who live Downtown and along the current and future METRORail lines.
Houston 1:8 is our missionary journey to our city. Houston’s First Baptist Church members will share the love of Christ at various locations across Houston.
