We believe that the Biblical example of planting churches is that churches start churches. Churches in the New Testament were not started by well-meaning individuals, nor by large, para-church organizations or fellowships. Local churches sent out men who started local churches. We have chosen to follow that Biblical example.
CORNERSTONE BAPTIST CHURCH, Spring Hill, FL
Our first “baby” church was Cornerstone Baptist Church of Spring Hill, Florida. Pastor Richard Rossiter was our Associate Pastor for five years, before the Lord led him to plant this church. They have continued to grow and flourish under the sound preaching of God’s Word. The church recently built a new building to accommodate their growing attendance.
NORTHWOODS BAPTIST CHURCH, Bemidji, MN
Bro. Preston Hoiseth, our Associate Pastor for five years, moved in the fall of 2011 to northern Minnesota to plant an independent, fundamental, Baptist church in the Bemidji area. Northwoods Baptist Church had their first Sunday in February of 2012. They recently moved into and remodeled a former bank building in downtown Bemidji.
CHRISTWAY BAPTIST CHURCH, Zephyrhills, FL
Bro. Michael Coffman worked on staff at Faith Baptist until the Lord led him to where he was to start a new church. Christway Baptist Church of Zephyrhills, Florida, had its first service in May 2015.
PLEASANT VALLEY BAPTIST CHURCH, Glendale, AZ
Bro. Scott Naill, former pastor of Faith Baptist Church, followed God’s call in March 2015 to plant a new church in Glendale, Arizona (near Phoenix). He and his family gathered support and let the people of that area know that a new church was beginning. Pleasant Valley Baptist Church held is first services on November 1, 2015.
