Since Pastor Smith’s arrival, Faith Baptist Church has seen tremendous growth, with new families continually being added. Through the building programs at Faith Baptist Church, God has provided two new auditoriums as well as several remodels and renovations that created additional classroom space. The church is now moving forward with plans for a fellowship hall with a commercial grade kitchen as well as an administration complex. The church has also seen substantial growth in their Faith Promise Missions giving, bus ministry, nursing home ministry, Christian day school, and numerous other outreach ministries. In recent years, the Lord has blessed Faith Baptist Church with two unique ministry opportunities – Work of Faith Publications, the church’s tract printing ministry, and Word of Faith Scripture Printing, producing personalized and custom cover marked-edition New Testaments for churches across the country and around the world.
The members of Faith Baptist Church have labored together to spread the Gospel around the globe, distributing millions of Gospel tracts hand-to-hand in just one week’s time through the Million to Mexico and Millions to Manila projects. With the Regions Beyond Missions Outreach in 2008, families from Faith endeavored to encourage and equip missionaries on five different foreign fields – Honduras, Mexico, India, Australia, and Peru – by providing outreach materials and hands-on leadership training. In 2009, the families of Faith distributed 50,000 New Testaments from Word of Faith Scripture Printing door-to-door throughout Northeast Tacoma, Federal Way, Fife, Milton, and Edgewood. We thank God for how He has privileged this “little church on the hill”, and look forward with great anticipation to what He has in store in the coming days!
FBC has developed several printing and publication ministries. Brochures, tracts, banners, and booklets through Work of Faith Publications; personalized New Testaments through Word of Faith Scripture Printing; Christian artwork for the home, office, and ministry through Gracious Christian Living; Historical reproductions of our Bible through the Biblical Heritage Exhibition and in celebration and recognition of the 400th Anniversary of the King James Bible, displaying the history of the Bible in English.
