Our Story

Our Story

Faith Community Baptist Church is located in Chester County, Pennsylvania. While we have a Downingtown address we are located in West Bradford Township close to the intersections of Glenside Road and Shadyside Road.

Our church began as Community Baptist Church in the late 1980′s. By early 2000 our congregation had dwindled to a small group of believers. Faith Baptist Church began in 1998 and was meeting in the West Chester area. As the believers of Faith Baptist began looking for a church God led these two bodies of believers together. In October of 2002 the believers of Community Baptist and Faith Baptist began meeting together. Within a short time these two bodies of believers merged together calling their new congregation Faith Community Baptist Church.

Since these two churches merged God has blessed, growth has taken place, and a vision for the future expansion of our church property is underway. However, in January of 2013 our church suffered a setback when the building suffered major damage from an electrical fire. From January to October we had had to meet in another location while our church2013-01-25_08-41-13_605 was being rebuilt.

Finally, back in our church, the congregation is once again looking forward with a vision for growth and the expansion of our building to better minister to the community around us. Future expansion includes the addition of a new nursery, new bathrooms, new offices, and a multipurpose building to provide a gathering area for our children, teens, and churchwide fellowships.

Faith Community Baptist Church is a church with a vision for the future!
