History

 

Over a decade ago, Southern Hills Baptist Church and the Union Baptist Association purchased ten acres on the southwest corner of S. Pennsylvania Avenue and 134th Street with the dream of planting a new church. In the Fall of 2002, Southern Hills made another step toward that goal by calling Mike and Debbie Howard from a pastorate in Georgia to become church planters for this new work.

After several months of prayer and preparations, a group of 30 plus committed folks came together from Southern Hills to form the core group for the church mission known as Faith Crossing. This group met weekly to pray, plan, and prepare with the goal of publicly launching as a mission church in October 2003.

In September 2003, a number of members from Westmore Baptist Church sensed God’s leadership to disband and to join this core group and became part of the new work. Immediately, these folks became an integral part of what God wanted to accomplish at Faith Crossing.

On Sunday, October 26, 2003, after three “practice” Sundays, we held our first public service at Eastlake Elementary School. Every Sunday for seven months, we met in the Eastlake cafeteria before moving our services to Mid-America Christian University in June 2004.

On the first Sunday of May, 2006, Faith Crossing Baptist Church constituted as a wholly self-functioning church. We continued to meet at Mid-America Christian University until August of 2011. This date proved to be a major milestone in the life of Faith Crossing as we realized the completion of our new facility located at S. Pennsylvania and SW 134th. Worship services began in the new facility on August 21, 2011.
