A Fundamental, Independent Baptist Church   •    Brad Calhoun - Pastor   •   Linville, NC

People who are seeking a church seek many things. Some seek the ornate vaulted ceilings with stained glass and statues that give one a feeling of worshipping in a place of One greater than oneself. Others seek to feel they are emotionally recharged by the highly charged program of music and variety in the services. Yet others seek a fellowship where they can connect with their soul mates in small groups and relationship-building activities.

At Faith Baptist Church we like things simple. Our worship services are not elaborate, but we endeavor, using traditional Christian music, to bring people into the presence of an awe-inspiring Holy God. The family atmosphere here at Faith encourages everyone to use his or her God-given gifts for the benefit of the whole assembly, the local manifestation of the body of Christ. Our desire in assembling ourselves together is to consider one another to provoke unto love and to good works. We love one another, and we rejoice when one of us rejoices and we weep when one of us weeps.

Faith Baptist Church is a place for hungry souls. We stress the exposition of God's Word. God's Word is the necessary food for the soul. Jesus said, “Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.” Our pastor takes the Word of God and breaks it as the Bread of Life, so that each person is spiritually fed and challenged to apply the Scriptures to his daily life in order to live a life that is pleasing to God.

Faith Baptist Church is a place for wounded souls, souls beaten and battered by a life of sin and enslavement to Satan. Here we preach the message of freedom in Christ. The Bible says that “All have sinned and come short of the glory of God.”(Romans 3:23) We are all born sinners, without a relationship to God and without hope in this world. “But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.” (Romans 5:8) God loved us so much that He sent His Son, the Lord Jesus Christ. Jesus gave Himself to die on the cross in our place. By His sacrificial death, Christ did everything that was necessary so that you and I could be reconciled to God.

Jesus said, “All that the Father giveth me shall come to me; and him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out.”(John 6:37) All that you need to do is come to Christ in faith, recognizing that you are a lost sinner and unable to save yourself. He has promised to receive you as His child, to forgive you of your sins, to make you a new life here on earth, and to give you eternal life forever in the presence of God himself. “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”(John 3:16) The invitation is open to everyone. Coming to Christ is the beginning of a new life. “If any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.” (2 Corinthians 5:17) We understand that Faith Baptist Church is not the place for everyone. But Faith Baptist Church is a place for those who want to worship God in simplicity and sincerity and who have a hunger to know God and His life-changing Word.
