Our Church

Faith Baptist Church is an old-fashioned Independent, Bible-believing Baptist Church.

We believe that God’s Word has the answer to all of life’s problems and is the final authority for all matters of faith and practice. The Bible tells us we can know how to get to Heaven and how to live a Biblically prosperous and successful life until we arrive there. A day of confusion and instability reigns in our country, and yet God has given us His Word as a guide in these times. The Word of God instructs us personally as individuals in the husband-wife relationship, and in the parent-child relationship to make our homes a little heaven on earth.

We call ourselves old-fashioned because we still attempt to live our lives according to the Bible. You will find normal people with normal imperfections. You will also find friendly people who care.

We are committed at Faith Baptist Church to help people of every age find the peace that only God can provide. This is the ministry the Lord Jesus Christ has given to us. We long for you to know Jesus Christ as your personal Savior and for you to be involved in a church home that cares for you. We care at Faith Baptist Church - give us an opportunity to prove it.

Faith Baptist Church has been serving this community for over 30 years. As we have grown, so has the space needed for the teaching and studying of the Bible. We have the largest bus ministry in the area, busing in 200-400 needy children throughout the county every Sunday.


We started a building program seven years ago. We have recently opened our doors to our new and wonderful building.

You are always welcome to visit us for our services!
