The reason for everything we do is to be and make disciples of Jesus. To help each other along this process, we encourage each other to follow Jesus in four areas: gather, grow, give, go, seeking in everything to give glory to our God.
Gather Around the Gospel
Each Sunday at 10:00 am, we all gather together in the auditorium for a time of worship and teaching focused on the gospel, or good news, that Jesus Christ, the Son of God, died and rose again to save sinners.
Grow With Others
We also meet weekly in small groups, which we call "Community Groups." Starting at 11:30 am on Sunday, we meet in small groups to help each grow into a better follower of Jesus and pray for one another. We know that only spending time studying the Bible and in prayer on Sunday mornings is simply not enough to build a dynamic and living relationship with God. So, we also encourage everyone to grow more like Jesus on their own, as well.
Give Like Jesus
In addition to learning more about Jesus, we also want to give him our best by finding an area to serve others. We know people have busy lives, so we encourage all of our regular attenders to find one ministry where they can use their God-given talents to serve others.
Go Make New Disciples
Jesus told his followers to go and tell others about him. We challenge our people invest in the lives of their friends and invite their friends to come meet Jesus at Faith.
The FBC Story
On a Monday evening in 1954, seven people met to pray, with the goal of starting a church in the Kentwood area. Meeting in individual homes for study and prayer for several weeks, this small group of believers chose the name "Faith Baptist Church" for their community of believers. Over 50 years later, though the names and faces have changed, Faith Baptist Church remains a place in Kentwood for those searching for God and seeking that same faith.
We at Faith Baptist are a community of those seeking God's truth and purpose for our lives. We seek to apply the ancient truth of the Bible in our hectic 21st century lives. We meet together each week to worship God, learn God's truth, and serve our community. Not one of us is perfect, and we all experience struggles, so we gather to help each other fulfil the purpose God has for each one of our lives.
