Faith Bible Church seeks to be a loving community making disciples of Jesus Christ in many ways. One key way is through church planting. We want to see multiple ‘loving communities’ planted around the region. The next step of the process is planting Trinity Church Spokane Valley.

Why plant churches?
Jesus plan to build his church (Matthew 16:18) and his command to go make disciples (Matthew 28:18-20) has always been carried out through planting and establishing churches (The book of Acts). Sending missionaries and church plants has always been part of God’s plan for making a people for His glory. God has always used a small community of believers planted in a region to reach that region.
Why plant in the Spokane Valley?
There are 200,000 people between Spokane city limits and Coeur d’Alene with a scarcity of churches to reach them. Gospel preaching churches in the valley are encouraging us to plant there.
While budget, attendance numbers and other practical factors are important for a church planting church. The key issue is always the spiritual health and disciple-making culture of the church. By God’s grace the core of FBC is striving to spiritual maturity and a disciple making mindset. We have a core of people ready to go! AND a core of people able to step up and fill their shoes!
What about the future of Faith Bible Church in central Spokane?
God promises to bless and use a church committed to being a loving community making disciples of Jesus Christ. As long as we are devoted to Apostolic teaching, prayer, sharing life, and celebrating the gospel, God will keep adding to our numbers (Acts 2:42-47). Even during Covid 19 we added over 60 new members.
