Very soon after visiting with us, you'll find that Faith Baptist Church is a Church that is committed to connecting people with God through Jesus. That's why we're here. And we do that in a variety of ways. We do it personally through knowing Christ ourselves and making Him known to others. We do it practically through serving Christ both in the Rowan County County area, as well as all across the globe. And we do it passionately by sharing the good news of salvation through Jesus to anyone who will listen! We want to see people become all they can be for Christ, and that's why we're so thrilled that you're looking through our site. We trust what you find here and at our website will be a benefit to your relationship with God, and we hope to see you this Sunday for worship on our campus!
