About Faith Bible Church

 

Faith Bible Church was founded on January 30, 2000, with 32 members.  Founded with the vision of a Church that makes a difference in the lives of it’s members, the community, and our entire society.  Having being led as we believe by the Holy Spirit we became a fully incorporated organization governed by our by-laws as an independent non-denominational congregation.  Our first two services were held at the Senior Citizen’s Center in Sanderson, Fl.  We then moved to 13429 Five Churches Rd. to a vacant Church which was formerly the Church of God Saints in Christ.  A great deal of thanks is owed to Deacon Hayward Woolbright for allowing us to hold services there.  
 
On November 11, 2000, with God’s favor and less than a year in existence we purchased 25 acres of land at the intersection of US 90 and Interstate10 with the hopes of building a new sanctuary.  This land was given to us by God at a price of two thousand dollars per acre.
 
On October 12, 2008, we held our first service in our new sanctuary where we are presently holding services.  On December 7, 2008, we dedicated this house of prayer to the Lord.
 
On April 26, 2006, we purchased the Senior Citizen’s Center of Sanderson and the surrounding two and half acres of property from the Baker County Board of Commissioners.  This center was renamed The Central Elementary Center in honor of it first use as a all black segregated school, “Central Elementary”.  The Central Elementary Center as part of Faith Bible Church’s ministry, under the management of First Lady Marva Williams has served more than ten thousand meals to the elders of our communities since its opening on September 5, 2006.  With the help of faithful volunteers and supporters, The Central Elementary Center continues to this day to provide hot meals to the elderly throughout the week at noon.  
 
Since our founding along with being dedicated to the preaching and teaching of the Gospel of Jesus Christ we have been a part of and have instituted many events and activities within our Church and communities as we strive to be a Church that makes a difference.  
 
Although fairly young compared to some other ministries, Faith Bible Church has been blessed by God to have a great impact on the members within the Church and the surrounding communities.  Pray that God continues to enlarge our territory.  To God be the glory for the great wonderful things He has done!

 

Videll W. Williams Sr., is the Senior Pastor and founder of Faith Bible Church.  He and his wife, Marva, have been married for 27 years with two children, April and Videll II.  Pastor Videll is the youngest of 7 siblings born to the Clarence and Rosa Lee Williams.  Pastor Videll is a native of Macclenny, Florida, and graduate of Baker County High School. 

He is a also a proud veteran of the US Army where he served an Airborne Military Police officer.  Pastor Videll was called to the ministry of preaching the Gospel while on active duty in Honduras, Central America and was officially licensed in June of 1988, under Elder Ora Ruise Sr., Emmanuel COGIC.  Pastor Videll began holding Bible Studies in his home and later served as Pastor of Jerusalem Baptist Church in Olustee, Florida. 

In January, of 2000, Pastor Videll was led to found Faith Bible Church in Sanderson, Florida, where he continues to serve as the senior Pastor.  Since its origin the Faith Bible Church family has experienced the favor of God in numerous areas such as: Purchasing 25 acres of property, purchasing the Sanderson Senior Citizens Building, establishing an elderly lunch program, construction of a new sanctuary, and the development of numerous ministries within the Church. 

The most precious reward has been the changed lives and spiritual growth that God has allowed through the preaching and teaching of His word by Pastor Videll.  As Pastor Videll would say, " the ultimate goal of preaching, teaching, praying and fasting is obedience to the Word of God.  We don't do ministry to preach and teach how to get more stuff!  More than anything what we need is to get more obedience to the Word of God in our lives!"
