Empowering believers to worship God, grow in Christlikeness,
and fulfill our ministries, so we can lead people to Jesus.
This church is a gathering of people from the numerous towns and cities around our vicinity (Coleman, Marinette, Menominee, Oconto, Pound, Peshtigo, Crivitz, Lena, Wallace, and others). Needless to say, we are not just a local community church, but a large group of people from many church backgrounds, vocational fields, and the numerous communities in our area of NW Wisconsin.
What unites us at Faith Baptist Church is a shared love for Jesus Christ, a reliance on the Holy Spirit for daily living, a commitment to the Bible for our instruction, a desire to grow in our faith, and a mission to help other people around the world come to know new life in Jesus.
Faith Baptist Church is a church under the Headship of Jesus Christ, and functioning with leaders who themselves are led by Jesus. As a church body, we recognize we are part of the larger Body of Christ around the world. The local body gathered as Faith Baptist Church operates as autonomous from any religious hierarchy or organization, calling its own pastors and owning its own property. At the same time, Faith Baptist Church voluntarily associates with other organizations to better accomplish things that cannot be done well alone.
At Faith Baptist Church the congregation has the final vote on matters of church life and faith. The official membership of the congregation chooses a team of Elders who are responsible for Doctrine, Direction and Discipline. All ministry leaders are accountable to the Elder Board. There is also a Deacon Board, elected by the congregation, to look over all matters of finance, property, support staff and maintenance. When major decisions need to be made, in many cases teams or task forces are appointed by the Elders to research issues and bring recommendations back to the Elders. If the recommendations are approved at leadership levels, they are brought to the congregation for final discussion and decision. Examples would be calling pastoral staff, building projects, or major ministry directions.
Faith Baptist is associated with Converge Great Lakes and Converge Worldwide, headquartered in Arlington Heights, IL. Converge is a group of 900 evangelical churches across the United States, with two seminary campuses and missionaries in 20 countries.
