For We Walk By Faith Not By Sight
II Corinthians 5:7
Faith Baptist Church held its first service on December 3, 1999 in a machine shop in Carthage, NC. There were 17 people present and the name for the church was voted on with a unanimous decision.
After visiting the Juniper Grange building on Carthage Road in West End, the church made a decision to rent the property to start holding church there. We held our first service in that location December 15, 1999, with 31 attendees. On January 9, 2000 we became officially organized as a church.
As the Lord added to the church, it became apparent that more room was needed. Approximately eight acres beside of the Grange became available, so the church purchased the land. After voting on a church floor plan and receiving bids from several contractors, the church voted to have Mark Stewart of Stewart Construction as the contractor. A ground breaking service was held on December 15, 2002. The first service was held in the new church building on June 29, 2003.
God has continued to bless and add to the church. A new sanctuary was constructed and the church held it's Dedication Service in January 2009.
