Faith Baptist Church, Vienna, Virginia, is transitioning from an older congregation to one with lots of children. Though the congregation is small, Pastor David and Shannon Matthews are vibrant and joyful in the ministry. Pastor Matthews remarks, “It seems like this church needs stability in leadership. I pray that God will give me a 30- to 40-year ministry that will be fruitful for His glory.”
Chris Hindal, director of Regular Baptist International, highlighted the power of the gospel to save everyone who believes as he met with the congregation on Sunday, July 2. Through PowerPoint, they journeyed to many countries with Chris to see how God is expanding the international partnership and, through it, expanding His church.
Faith Baptist has opened its doors to an Arabic-speaking congregation that meets on Sunday afternoon.
