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!
