History



Our History:

Faith Baptist Church is an independent Baptist church governed by its congregation and led by its pastors.

In its fifty year history, FBC has had three Senior Pastors; Marc Blackwell, who founded the church in 1969; John McCall, and David Anderson. Both Drs. Blackwell and McCall left Faith Baptist Church to serve as missionaries. Pastor Anderson came to Faith Baptist from Buffalo, NY and has served as Senior Pastor since 1999.

FBC has resided at its current twenty-two acre campus on Fruitville Road since 2005 after moving from its former facility on Bee Ridge Rd.

Our Next Steps of Faith for 2022:

Proverbs 29:18 tells us that without vision the people perish. Having a biblical vision for the church is essential.

For 2022 and beyond Faith Baptist Church will be praying for several things they desire God to accomplish. As we enter into Our Next Steps of Faith, we joyfully remember the past while looking forward to the future.

Please join us as we pray for these things and watch the Lord work in wonderful ways through the believers at Faith Baptist Church.

  • Reaching out to families in Sarasota.
  • Relaunching small groups and that many would participate.
  • Reinvigorating the children’s and youth ministry at Faith.
  • Being more intentional in evangelism and discipleship.
  • Expanding Service outreach.
  • Reinvigorating the Saturday morning prayer group.
