We believe that the preaching of the Word of God is basic and fundamental to what the church is all about. The Bible has the answers to all of life’s problems. It defines and declares God’s will for the individual, the family, and the nation. It further unfolds God's blueprint for the church. The Bible is the Guidebook for all we do at Faith Baptist Church & Christian Academy.
We have Sunday School classes for all ages. Classes are tailored to help every age group grow in their knowledge of God’s Word.
Our desire is to have teachers who are enthusiastic in the classroom and caring when it comes to the lives of their students.
Matthew 28:18-20 And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.
This is the Great Commission. We believe in doing all we can to reach the lost at home and abroad. Our church supports both foreign and home missionaries. We also witness door-to-door in an effort to reach our own area/community with the truth of God‘s love.

This is our ladies fellowship that ministers to the unique needs of women, and offers them an opportunity of serving others.
This fellowship of ladies establishes friendships that last a lifetime and involves our ladies in the application of God’s Word
to everyday life. The Secret Sister program is an outreach ministry for women in our church. All of the ladies of our church are invited to participate. If you participate you will draw a name and that woman becomes your Secret Sister for a year. You become her silent prayer partner and her secret up-lifter. She doesn’t know who you are. Likewise someone will be caring for you in that way too. Secret Sisters are about encouraging, praying for, and supporting each other in small ways.
"AFTERSHOCK" is our ministry to TEENS. We provide our teenagers with instruction and activities in an atmosphere

While the adults are in BIG church in the morning worship time, the children have an exciting time in Junior & Children's Church. The Word of God is taught to them on a level where children can understand it. Through the use of Scriptural teaching, object lessons, visual aides, and our amazing puppet ministry, the truths of the Bible come to life. Your children will not only enjoy coming to church, they will learn while they are here and want to come back next Sunday.
The Nursing Home ministry reaches out to the often forgotten people of society. Bro. Dewitt Teston and his wife, Una, have worked tirelessly for over 25 years with a ministry focus of building relationships with the residents and ultimately seeing them accept Christ. There is a weekly visitation as well as on site church services held on Sunday afternoons at various nursing homes in the area. We count it a privilege to be able to be able to minister and be an encouragement to those who are unable to attend church otherwise.

Our Bible Institute is a college level program of study for those who wish to be trained for the ministry, or for those who are already serving, yet desire a deeper understanding of the Scriptures. Our program is rich in Bible content, practical, and very affordable. If you are looking for a systematic approach to learning the Bible, then our Bible Institute may be right for you.

The single adult ministry offers a variety of opportunities for worship, Bible study, personal and spiritual growth, recreation, and fellowship.
At the heart of the single adult ministry is the desire to help individuals build a strong, rewarding relationship within the single adult ministry as well as within the church family. It is a place where one can come and find a whole new group of caring friends as well as God’s love.
Young people must be taught the clear commandments of God’s Word. The Bible says in II Timothy 2:2, “And the things that thou hast heard of me among many witnesses, the same commit thou to faithful men, who shall be able to teach others also.”
The purpose of the local church youth ministry is to help equip families with the necessary tools from God’s Word to lay the right foundation for life. We seek to assist parents by providing young people with instruction in the Word of God as well as ministry opportunities in the work of God. We strive to help entire families serve the Lord together.
Children are a gift from God. They are given to parents, and it is the responsibility of parents to give their children back to God. Giving a child to God involves the parents’ surrender to the will of God. As the parent seeks God’s will in rearing the child, the Sunday School class helps to instruct the child in godly knowledge.
Nothing serves as so precious a reminder of God’s blessings as the birth of a child. Every newborn baby should have the joy and privilege of being brought into a truly Christian home. It is the responsibility of the local church nursery and preschool ministry to provide a safe, enjoyable Christian environment to help nurture the young children of the church. The church should be a godly source for young parents to gain guidance as they seek to serve the Lord, bring their children to church, and teach them to know God.
