“Missions” at Faith is more than mission trips, mission programming or stamping a passport – our church family aspires to be a collection of Christ-followers living missionally in the culture and context of our lives. This means that in all aspects of life, we embrace our call to be ministers of reconciliation (2 Corinthians 5:18-20; 1 Peter 2:4-9) in our everyday lives. So, whether it is engaging our neighbors and co-workers, or going to serve those who live in the uttermost parts of the world, those Divine experiences are a part of the greater Story. In believing that “missions” is a lifestyle, we recognize that we are called to engage and serve all the peoples of the world.

Our passion is to strengthen existing evangelical efforts and create new efforts all over the globe for the cause of Christ. We believe in relational partnerships and anticipate reconnecting with current mission partners year after year to experience the fruits of salvation and discipleship.

We believe that making disciples happens through the local church. Currently, Faith is engaged in planting churches here in the Shelby Co. area. We are also excited to partner with multiple church planters not only in Memphis but around the country. The impact that a loving, Gospel-centered family of believers can have on a community is undeniable.
Recently, Stephen had the chance to sit down with church planting pastors Brad Dunlap from Mercy Hill and Thi Mitsamphanh and Prakash Sunuwar from First International Baptist to discuss church planting in Memphis and the role a relationship with Faith Baptist plays in their ministry.
