Faith Baptist Church was founded in 1976 with James Webber as the original pastor. The church met in a home originally and then a converted building. The church then purchased the current property on East Loop 281 in Longview in 1978. The church soon began construction on the original sanctuary which now serves as the Fellowship Hall and where the Sunday School classes are taught. The current sanctuary was completed and dedicated in 1987. Much of the work on both buildings was done with the willing labor of members of the church.
Faith Baptist Church has been blessed to be able to minister to many people throughout the years, seeing souls saved and believers built up in the Lord. Since the inception of the church, there has been a strong emphasis upon expository preaching and teaching, and also upon the proclamation of the free and sovereign grace of God. That emphasis continues today and we pray that the Lord will continue to bless us with growth both spiritual and numerically that we, above all else, may honor and glorify His name.
