Our Vision


Our vision resonates from a belief that God’s word changes lives. We exist to bring glory to God through our worship, teaching, fellowship, and service to our community: resting in our belief in the Gospel of Jesus Christ and eagerly seeking ways to serve Him and others.

Our History


Faith Baptist is an independent Baptist church governed by its congregation and led by its pastors. In its 48 year history, FBC has had three Senior Pastors; Marc Blackwell, John McCall, and David Anderson. Both Dr. Blackwell and Dr. McCall left Faith Baptist Church to serve in the missions field. Dr. Blackwell and his wife are still serving in South Africa. Dr. McCall and his wife retired from OTAN and are currently serving the Lord at their local church in Colorado.
