History of Our Church

Faith Baptist Church was formed in 1999 when members from Western Park Baptist Church of Dallas and Northside Baptist Church of Duncanville agreed to blend the two congregations into one so that we could better be about the business of making disciples for our Lord Jesus Christ.  The following is a combined timeline from inception to the merge.
