In 1978, several families met together in regular prayer that God would raise up an independent Bible church in this area. They sought to form a non-denominational local congregation based solidly on the Word of God that stood for the essentials of the faith and the Christian liberty of the believer.
In September of 1978, Faith Community Church held its first service with Ed Regensburg as Pastor. Pastor Regensburg continued to shepherd the flock for 36 years until he retired in March 2013. In the early years the congregation met in St. Johns Chapel in Gambrills and then later moved to Arundel Senior High School before building the present facilities. The latest addition was completed in September of 2001.
We firmly believe that lost people matter to God and, therefore, ought to matter to our church; so we are active in our support of world-wide missions. From our congregation we have been blessed to have many families and individuals leave us to go into full time missionary or pastoral work. We are deeply grateful to God for the privileged that is ours to see families and young people discipled and then carry their passion for Christ to the four corners of the world.
Another goal which is being realized is that of first-hand summer mission experiences by members of our congregation. These included serving in Peru, Brazil, Belgium, Nicaragua, Jamaica, and the Middle East. Locally we’ve used Backyard Bible Clubs, worked on the Baltimore Rescue Mission, helped at mission board local headquarters, served in soup kitchens, provided roofing for the poor, and helped with Summer outreaches in Ocean City, MD. We are active with services at the Baltimore Rescue Mission, Ordnance Road Detention Center, and the Knollwood Nursing Home.
During the years we have been blessed with much growth taking place and many new ministries and staff being added along the way.
