OUR HISTORY

The Beginning

Faith Bible Church begins in February of 1980 when a small group of believers attending Metropolitan Baptist Church in Oklahoma City gather to explore the viability of beginning a Bible-based fellowship in Edmond.

The group of believers met for a few months on Sunday evenings in a home with Russell McKnight serving as Pastor. Utilizing the facilities of an Edmond day-care center the church begins regular services on the first Sunday of June, 1980.

  • On July 1, 1990, the church purchases five acres of land at 600 N. Coltrane and in late September of that same year construction of a church building begins. With great excitement the church body moves into their new permanent facility on February 24, 1991.

  • Due to poor health Russell McKnight resigns as Pastor in 1990. One year later on October 29, 1991, Mark Hitchcock is called to serve as Pastor.

Our Growth

Faith Bible Church continues to grow and additional space is needed. In order to meet its growing needs the church purchases five adjoining acres of land to the south and begins making plans for enlarging the church building. Ground breaking for an expansion to the sanctuary and a new educational and office wing occurs in June 1997.

  • The project is completed and the new facility is formally dedicated on March 8, 1998.

  • June 3, 2001 marks the completion and dedication of our 2nd building expansion, which provides FBC with an additional 6,000 feet of adult and youth classroom space.

  • On June 7, 2009, FBC breaks ground on its new $7.3MM building expansion and remodel project. On Sunday, April 10, 2011 FBC formally dedicates and celebrates the completion of its $8MM building expansion, remodel and land purchase project.

God has proven to be tremendously faithful in answering prayer and meeting our needs here at Faith Bible Church. However, we strongly believe that our greatest years of ministry are still yet ahead of us.

Greater Things...

In the Fall of 2016 Faith Bible launches its Greater Things Capital Campaign. The vision of Greater Things is to maximize our capacity on the 15 acres of land on our existing campus in a way that is mindful of godly stewardship and consistent with our commitment to discipleship.  

In late Fall of 2019, Faith Bible completes its Greater Things Building Project, which means over 35,000 square feet of youth and children's space is added to our existing building. In addition, a remodel of our Family Life Center results in a 950 seat worship center alongside generous circulation and lobby space.

Scripture makes it clear that the church is a people not a place. But God does put His people in places, and we couldn't be more excited about what God wants to do in the Edmond community, and to the ends of the earth, through the ministry of Faith Bible Church.

Greater Things are yet to come.
