OUR HISTORY

Our history is a record of God's faithfulness. In the early days, the church saw the blessing of numerical growth and souls being saved. Later, the church entered a period of great trial as its name was tarnished. Today, Faith Baptist Church is experiencing the unprecedented blessing of God. To God we give praise for over 60 years of ministry, over 60 years of blessing, salvations, preaching, tears, trials, struggles, and praise. All of these and more make up the rich tapestry of the history of Faith Baptist Church.
