Purpose & History

Mission Statement
The Purpose of Sandy Creek Bible Camp is to teach the Gospel of Jesus Christ to children and adults while in a relaxed rural setting. The camp will provide opportunities for Christian growth, fellowship and service for those who attend the camp.

Texas Youth Camp INC. was established in 1947 and took on the name Cedar Hill Bible Camp. The camp was located south of Dallas where it operated until 1972. The board purchased this property here in Old Washington, changed the name and in 1973 started having camps and retreats at Sandy Creek Bible Camp. For the last 60 years our mission has remained the same, to teach the gospel of the Jesus Christ and to provide opportunities for Christian growth, fellowship and service.

Doctrinal Statement
We believe in: The divine inspiration of the Bible as the very Word of God. The Triune God – Father, Son and Holy Spirit. The complete deity and humanity of the Lord Jesus Christ. Because of the fall of man, the necessity and efficacy of the substitutionary death of Jesus Christ for the redemption of man, and his bodily resurrection. The Holy Spirit – His work of convicting, regenerating, sanctifying and indwelling every believer. The necessity of the new birth, in salvation by faith in Jesus Christ alone, and the importance of a life fully committed to the Will of God. The expectation of the personal return of the Lord Jesus Christ.
