Scott has served as Pastor of First Baptist Church, Rockport since 2008, and has been in full-time ministry since 1993. Scott graduated from Howard Payne University in 1993 with a degree in English and Speech. He received a Masters of Divinity with Biblical Languages from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary in 1997. In 2016 Scott earned a Ph.D. in Pastoral Leadership from B. H. Carroll Theological Institute. Scott and his wife, Kimberlie, were married in 1993 and have two children: Michael and Kathryn. The basis for Scott’s ministry is found in Colossians 1:28-29, “We proclaim him, admonishing and teaching everyone with all wisdom, so that we may present everyone perfect in Christ. To this end I labor, struggling with all his energy, which so powerfully works in me.”
The mission of FBC Rockport is to lead all people to be shaped by the love of Christ.
The beautiful wind-swept oak trees are a striking and distinctive feature of the Aransas County landscape. Just as the wind and the salt air shapes the oaks, we believe that the powerful presence of God is shaping us with the love of Jesus Christ.

What We Believe
We welcome all who desire to worship Christ with us! As you join us in worshiping Christ, here are a set of core beliefs that form the essence of our faith and practice. Our beliefs are in conjunction with the 1963 Baptist Faith and Message.
We believe in the authority of Scripture. It has God for its author, salvation or its end, and truth, without any mixture of error, for its matter. 2 Timothy 3:16, Romans 15:4, 2 Peter 1:19-21
We believe in one triune God, eternally existent in three distinct persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Matthew 3:16-17, Matthew 28:18-19, 2 Corinthians 13:14
We believe in the full deity and full humanity of Christ. Philippians 2:5-8, Luke 2:40, John 1:1-5, Hebrews 4:15
We believe in the ministry of the Holy Spirit who indwells every Christian’s life for the purpose of living a God-reflective life. John 16:7-11, 1 Corinthians 12:13, Ephesians 4:30

We believe the human race is sinful and separated from God and therefore must experience the work of Christ by faith in order to have a relationship with God. Romans 3:10-20, Ephesians 2:1-3, Colossians 1:21-22
We believe in the substitutionary atonement of Christ. Salvation involves the redemption of the whole man, and is offered freely to anyone who accepts Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. Romans 5:6-9, Galatians 3:13-14, Philippians 3:8-11
We believe that the church is the body of Christ and is to be about His work of making disciples of Christ in the world. Ephesians 1:22-23, Matthew 16:15-19, 1 Corinthians 12:12-31
We believe that water baptism by immersion and the Lord’s Supper are the only ordinances of the church. Matthew 28:19, Luke 22:19-20, I Corinthians 11:23-26
