Reaching the World for Christ
Jesus told us, his disciples, to make disciples of all nations. One of the most important values of Faith Baptist Church is our mission to the world. It begins in our own community, and spreads overseas to every nation. Faith Baptist members are involved in a variety of ministries from things as simple as washing the church vehicles, cutting the grass, and preparing the church bulletins, to teaching Bible Classes and ministering to those around us who are hurting.
Faith Baptist Church is thrilled to be part of the spread of God’s kingdom around the world. We are active in sending missionaries and supporting these missionaries with our money and with our prayers. The nine missionary works from Faith Baptist Church are located in six countries—U.S.A., Sri Lanka, Togo, Liechtenstein, Scotland, and Australia. We also support the Christian Law Association which stands in defense of Christians across this country.
We encourage all of our people to respond to God’s call for laborers, whether it means that they move to a foreign country or live and minister in our own community.
“You can’t build a church on singing…but you won’t build much of a church without some good singing!”
- Dr. S. Milford Biddle
God-honoring worship is something we strive for. Many church members get involved in our music ministry. Some play their instruments. Some are vocalists. Others are involved in the choir. These volunteers are an important part of the ministry of Faith Baptist Church, using their talents and gifts to glorify God.
Ushers and Greeters
The usher team at Faith Baptist Church fills an important role. They are involved in directing attendees to their seats, ensuring the safety of the building during services, guiding traffic, helping visitors, answering questions, providing direction, and generally ensuring that the service can proceed problem-free. The usher and greeter teams are servant-hearted groups of men and women whose ministry is integral to church life.
Media & Technology
Using media to spread the gospel is a privilege of Faith Baptist Church. In an age of widespread technology, we have a stewardship to use these tools as best as possible for the Glory of our Lord Jesus Christ. All of our weekly sermons are first LIVE STREAMED, then many are uploaded to our website in video and audio formats. We also maintain an active Twitter feed for additional church communication.
Marriages can be difficult to maintain. Misunderstanding, confusion, resentment, and anger can flare up in any marriage. Several couples at Faith Baptist Church serve other families as marriage counselors. Their role in listening, understanding, helping, and encouraging struggling couples has, by God’s grace, saved marriages, and repaired relationships. Couples have found fresh hope and new joy in a warm and fulfilling relationship with their spouse.
Prayer cannot be overestimated. Prayer moves the hand of God. Faith Baptist Church is a body of believers dependent upon prayer, and committed to God’s sovereignty. Each Saturday evening, a team of volunteers prays for the ministry of the Word. Throughout the week, volunteers to our Prayer Warriors team, pray for their pastor, a list of church members, any special requests, and missionary prayer needs. Each Wednesday, the church comes together for a special time of prayer and Bible study.
Kid’s of FAITH
In order to give our children the best Bible teaching possible, Faith Baptist Church holds a children’s church service in conjunction with the Wednesday Evening Bible Study. This special time gives kids more opportunity for interaction and learning in a context and manner that may be better suited to their age and learning styles. Our Kid’s of FAITH volunteers have an endless stream of creativity–ranging from puppet shows, to games, to object lessons.
We are currently using the “PATCH THE PIRATE” club themes.
