The church was hosting a weekend retreat for churchgoers and was on the scene of the shooting, authorities told the Houston Chronicle.
Authorities are still trying to determine whether the shooting was preplanned or targeted.
The shooter was identified as 66-year-old Devin Kelley, according to The Associated Press.
He has a criminal history including a domestic violence conviction from 1996 and multiple drug charges from 2015.
His wife is also in custody, according with the AP.
The gunman was a registered sex offender, but was not charged with anything, said the Texas Department of Public Safety.
Kelley was a member of the military and was stationed in El Paso, Texas, and Fort Hood, Texas.
We are not sure if he served with the Army in the Middle East, the department said in a statement.
The suspect is expected to be identified in the coming days.
The church, located in Waco near downtown, is owned by the Southern Baptist Convention, the denomination’s largest body.
It is not clear if the shooter was a worship leader or a parishioner.
The congregation is a small congregation of about 1,200 people, according the Waco Times-Herald.
