About Faith CommunityWe want everything about FCC to exalt Jesus Christ as Lord and for His church to see Him as more desirable than all the pleasures of this world. We urge one another to engage in weekly worship services, connect through small groups, and find places in which to serve one another, our community, and reach the lost world to make disciples of all nations!

““The Word of God will be to you a bulwark and a high tower, a castle of defense against the foe. Oh, see to it that the Word of God is in you, in your very soul, permeating your thoughts, and so operating upon your outward life, that all may know you to be a true Bible-Christian, for they perceive it in your words and deeds.”
– CH Spurgeon
Who is Faith Community Church?
What are we really about?
We deeply reverence the Word of God and seek to establish all its teachings and activities around the inspired text. The Word of God establishes our message, guides our worship, and governs our mission. In order to properly glorify God and to honor the Sacred Scriptures, we preach the crucified Christ as the only means by which one can be saved. By exalting Jesus Christ as Lord over all, and by making Him known among the nations, will we glorify the Father and fulfill the purpose for our existence. In order to expand and facilitate our global impact, we joined the Southern Baptist Convention in 2001. We also support missionaries who are commissioned and sent forth by other sending agencies.
It can be a daunting experience to walk into a church for the first time. When you first come to FCC we hope that you will be immediately welcomed by one of our ushers who greet you at the door. Those ushers are there to serve you, so if you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to ask them.
For all of our Sunday services, we provide a well-staffed nursery if you have need of childcare. Ask the ushers and they can point you in the right direction. We also provide an overflow room where the Sunday morning services are live-streamed. This room can also be utilized for parents of small children.
One of the most important things we ask of our first-time visitors is to fill out the infamous “blue card”. This card provides us with a record of your visit and some of the most basic information about you. Providing this information allows one of our pastors to contact you should you have any questions about the church.
Frequently Asked Questions
What is FCC like?
We are a very eclectic group. We don’t fit into a simple category. People come from all sorts of different walks of life. We have older folks and younger folks. Married, divorced, and single. Rich to poor. Simple to highly educated. And we have a bunch of children!
What do people wear to church?
We are a very eclectic group. We don’t fit into a simple category. Some people wear their Sunday best while others come more casual. It would not be unusual to observe someone in a nice business suit talking in the hall with someone in jeans and sandals.
What should I bring?
This may sound like an odd question, but it really does express what you can expect when you first come to FCC. When you visit bring your Bible but leave your checkbook home. One of the first things you will notice about our service is that we do not pass around a plate for the offering. We believe giving is a privilege and responsibility of the members of the church. As such, the Bible explains that giving should be intentional, cheerful, and discreet. We provide offering boxes in the sanctuary for those who desire to financially participate in this ministry.
The doors of Faith Community Church opened for services on Sunday May 17th! While we realize that not everyone will be comfortable attending just yet, we are happy to offer the opportunity for corporate worship at 9:00 or 10:30 am. Both services will be live-streamed on YouTube and Facebook. Everyone is welcome unless you are sick – in that case, please stay at home for the sake of your brothers and sisters. If you plan to attend, please be aware of others’ comfort and practice social distancing. The Elders have published the following guidelines concerning our meeting:
Plans for Resuming Services
1. We will resume services on May 17th under the guidelines issued by the city of Kansas City. Our
return will follow the guidelines set forth in the “10/10/10” rule. We are allowed to gather as long as we
remain under 10% of our building occupancy.
2. According to this rule we are allowed to have 250 chairs in our sanctuary that will be socially
distanced according to family units.
3. We will hold 2 services at 9 am and 10:30 am. In between services, there will be a team mobilized to
disinfect and sanitize the building.
4. If one service should exceed our capacity, we will have an overflow available that will be arranged
outside under the car portico. By law we are allowed 50 people to gather outside.
5. Sunday school, nursery, and the café will not be available at this time.
6. We will still be providing a Home Worship Guide for those who are unable to attend our services.
7. Multiple exits will be made available after each service in order to avoid congestion.
8. Ushers and greeters will be encouraged to wear masks, but not required.
