What We Believe
Jesus Christ is God the Son. On earth, Jesus was 100% God and 100% man. He is the only man ever to have lived a sinless life. He was born of a virgin, lived a sinless life, performed miracles, died on the cross for mankind and thus, atoned for our sins through the shedding of His blood. He rose from the dead on the third day according to the Scriptures, ascended to the right hand of the Father, and will return again in power and glory. (John 1:1,14, 20:28; I Timothy 3:16; Isaiah 9:6; Philippians 2:5-6; I Timothy 2:5).
We are saved by grace through faith in Jesus Christ: His death, burial, and resurrection. Salvation is a gift from God, not a result of our good works or of any human efforts (Ephesians 2:8-9; Galatians 2:16, 3:8; Titus 3:5; Romans 10:9-10; Acts 16:31; Hebrews 9:22).
Pastor Frank & Viktoria Francis
Frank Francis — a native Texan, pastors the congregation of Baybrook Church in the bay area of Galveston/Houston, Texas, which he and his wife Viktoria, and a few close friends founded. Baybrook’s motto is, “Ordinary People Living Extraordinary Lives.”
Frank began in ministry when he was 13 years old. He was once the youngest minister to carry credentials in his denomination. In addition to preaching and teaching, he is an accomplished musician, singer, songwriter, and author.
Frank’s style of ministry is warm, jovial, engaging, often comical, and informative. God has anointed Frank to teach and pray for people. Baybrook Church is full of people genuinely healed and deliverd by God.
His book, Through The Storm chronicles how God healed him from terminal brain cancer in 2013-2014.
On of Frank’s favorite Scriptures is, “I shall not die, but live, and declare the works of the Lord.” — Psalm 118:17
Outside of ministry, Frank is an avid sailor, archer, and adventurer. He loves the company of his wife, Viktoria, close friends, and of course… his collies.
Viktoria Francis — hails from Berdyansk, Ukraine and can best be described as peaceful. She has a warm, servant’s heart. Her quiet and calming nature is a perfect compliment to Pastor Frank’s gregarious personality. She has an open and nonjudgemental heart that sets people at ease.
Viktoria possesses a medical degree and works in the medical community. She is a true Proverbs 31 woman.
“He who finds a [true and faithful] wife finds a [beautiful] good thing, and obtains favor from the Lord” — Psalm 118:22
Viktoria loves reading, cooking, and outdoor activities including sailing.
She is the apple of Pastor Frank’s eye…
