  • WELCOME

     

    Our Mission is to

    seek out, witness to, and disciple the unsaved and the unchurched

    in the inner city - especially in the communities of Fairfield, Whitcomb,

    and Creighton Courts in the Greater Richmond Area.

     

    We believe that God wants to use us to raise up a faith community who will be committed to the gospel of Jesus Christ - dedicated to the building of a community that models the gospel message through love for God, Self and Others.

  • Founder's Day

    March 23, 2020

    We Honor Our Founders

    Often when a new church is planted,

    the sole emphasis is on the commitment and faithfulness of the founding visionary.

    But we know that for the vision of a new church to go forward, it takes men, women, boys and girls who are willing to risk everything in order that God’s will might be done. Faith Community Baptist Church has been blessed to have twenty-three founders who were willing to step out in faith with Pastor Gould-Champ with nothing but

    a vision and a strong belief that

    God would provide everything else.

  • OUR VISION

    We are a people called Faith Community and we have a mission. Our mission is to seek out, witness to, and disciple the unsaved and the unchurched in the inner city, especially the communities of Fairfield, Whitcomb and Creighton Courts in the East End of the city of Richmond.

     

    We believe that God wants to use us to raise up in the heart of this community a “faith community” who will be committed to the gospel of Jesus Christ and dedicated to the building of a community that will model the gospel message of Jesus Christ through love for God, self, and others.

     

    God has called us into existence to seek the salvation of sinners, the reclamation of backsliders, the sanctification of saints, the liberation of the oppressed and the empowerment of this African-American community spiritually, economically, educationally, and socially.
