Faith Christian is, “a church with open arms, loving hearts, and a desire to bring glory to God.” The church was formed with belief that Jesus Christ is our crucified and risen Lord. We believe the Bible is God’s Word and guides all Christians in faith and practice. Faith Christian is a place of refuge in the midst of an ever-changing world. The church is patterned after the Early Church. “They devoted themselves to the apostle’s teaching and to fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer.” (Acts 2:42). We believe there is a place in the church for all people who enter into and are sustained in a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. Condemnation and judgment does not define Faith Christian Church. We rather follow the path of love that our Lord laid down. Loving God and loving others are deeply imbedded in the life and witness of the church. We welcome you to be a part of the family at Faith Christian Church. As pastor of the church I am committed to supplying a steady diet of spiritual nourishment from God’s Word. I also assure you Faith Christian will be there to celebrate your victories with you – and walk hand in hand with you through the dark and difficult chapters of life. Blessing and Love, Pastor Reid
