Welcome to Faith Baptist Church
We are a fellowship of born-again believers who are focused on a lifelong journey of knowing and "loving the Lord thy God with all of our hearts" and our "neighbors as ourselves." We are conservative, traditional, independent, fundamental and baptistic in philosophy and welcome everyone who desires to join our pursuit of a real relationship with God.
Our website is organized around two passages of scripture spoken by the Lord Jesus Christ about our relationship to God and His Church:
"Thou shalt LOVE THE LORD thy God, with all thy soul, and with all thy mind." - Matthew 22:37
"GO YE THEREFORE, and TEACH ALL NATIONS, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: TEACHING THEM to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world, Amen." - Matthew 28:19-20

A Greeting From the Pastor & His Wife
On behalf of the Faith family, we would like to express our delight that you have visited our website. We hope you will look around and get a sense of what our ministry is trying to accomplish in our community.
The purpose of our church is to glorify the Lord through our work.
Our vision is to help families to develop the character of Christ through God's Word.
We believe Jesus has given us three mission tasks: we are to teach, worship, and care through ministry and evangelism. The entire ministry of our church centers around these principles.
If you are active in your church, we encourage you to stay committed to the ministry to which God has called you. If you are looking for a church home through which to serve, we wish to invite you to come be our guest. May the Lord bless you.
Your Friend in Christ,
Gary & Tammy
History of the Church
In January of 1965, a small group of 27 people met to discuss the prospects of organizing an Independent Baptist Church in Ramseur. After a week of prayer, the group settled on the name Faith Baptist Church and called its first pastor, Rev. Richard Gray. The church rented the Brown's Cross Roads Grange Hall until a building could be built at its current location off Highway 22 between Ramseur and Coleridge.
The first church budget of $169 per month was approved on July 14, 1965. In September 1968, the church opened the doors to Faith Christian School. Over the years the church has built, paid for and maintained the buildings and grounds of our 18-acre campus. The church currently sponsors the school along with 10 other missionaries and mission organizations.
Gary Moger came to Ramseur in August of 1979 to teach History, Bible and work with the youth.. He began pastoring the church in August of 1983. In 1983 Gary added a Masters of Arts degree in Pastoral Studies from Bob Jones University, and then a Doctorate of Sacred Ministry from Northland Baptist Bible College in 1997. Gary and his wife, Tammy, have two children, Matthew and Andrea, and enjoy spoiling four granddaughters.
