In March of 1927, a small group of Baptists met to organize a church in Austin. There were only five Baptist churches in Austin at that time. Emmanuel Baptist (later to become Hillcrest) organized with 30 charter members, and Rev. C. L. Sansing was called as pastor. The first official act of the church was to take an offering for missions.
