Sunday School @ 10:00 A.M and Worhip @ 11:00 A.M. each Sunday Morning
Hello and welcome to the website of Faith Missionary Baptist Church in Leighton Alabama. Faith is a Sovereign Grace, Landmark, Independent Baptist church.
By Sovereign Grace we mean that, as to salvation, it is by grace that we’re saved, (Eph. 2:8), and that this work is wrought in our lives by God and God alone apart from any merit or foreseen goodness in us. Like Jonah of old we believe, “Salvation is of the LORD”, (Jonah 2:9).
Landmark indicates what we believe concerning the Lord’s church. I’m afraid that over time the protestant heresy of a “universal invisible church” has by and large been imbibed hook, line, and sinker by the Baptist ranks. We believe this so called doctrine diminishes the importance of the Lord’s true church and is hurtful to it; “After all”, they reason, “we’re all in the “big church” so why bother with the little local assembly?”. But we hold that true New Testament churches today are local, visible assemblies of scripturally baptized believers, and that these assemblies have descended from that first church that the Lord Jesus set up during His earthly ministry in first century Jerusalem. True churches have two officers, Elders or Pastors, and Deacons; and two ordinances, Baptism and The Lord’s Supper.
The fact that we’re Independent simply means that we are not affiliated with any association or convention. Our headquarters is in glory where our Great and Glorious all wise Head is enthroned at the right hand of the Majesty on high. Our services consist of the singing of biblically sound hymns, praying, and the preaching and teaching of God’s Holy Word.
You are invited and welcome to visit and worship with us as we seek to honor God through the services of His church here at Faith. “Unto Him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus throughout all ages, world without end. Amen.” (Eph. 3:21)
May God Richly Bless You
