We exist to lead all to life in christ through LOVING GOD, GROWING TOGETHER, AND IMPACTING OTHERS.
We experience God's love through personal and corporate worship. He seeks to transform us as we encounter His Word, seek Him in prayer, and live out His truths.
We experience spiritual growth through authentic community. By our relationships with other believers, we find accountability, share experiences, and receive guidance as we continue on our spiritual journey.
We impact the lives of others through
personal service. Impact happens both in our congregation and community when we utilize our God given time, talents, and treasures for His glory.
Our church was launched in December 2008 when a group of believers joined together with a passion to minister to the Mandarin community.
God has blessed since then with many lives changed for the Gospel through salvations and baptisms, while also providing for several enhancements to ministry facilities, including a new 300-seat sanctuary in 2011, renovated office and classroom space in 2012, renovated children and youth facilities in 2015, and a new playground in 2016.
Dr. Andy Pietrylo, our Senior Pastor, has served in the Mandarin community for over 30 years and has been the pastor of Faith Baptist Church of Mandarin since it's inception.
We continue to see God at work as we pursue His mission of leading all to life in Christ.
Our church is an active member of the Southern Baptist Convention. Our beliefs are in accordance with the Baptist Faith and Message. In a brief synopsis, we believe:
- The Bible is the inerrant Word of God and is completely authoritative in all matters.
- There is one God who reveals Himself in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
- Salvation is only found by grace through faith in Jesus Christ.
- The church is the body of Christ and it's mission is to take the Gospel to the world.
