Fariston Christian Church dates from around 1893 when revival led to occasional Saturday night meeting, then services at a local school house. The first recorded members were in 1894. The congregation acquired the current property in 1896 and completed its first building in 1898. The first building was replaced with the existing structure in 1957.

Our Vision:

To become fully devoted followers of Christ and therefore make a positive and eternal difference in our community and in our world.


Our Beliefs:

We believe that we should let the Bible determine the plan of salvation, not the ideas of men.

  • Hear
    • Romans 10:17, So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.
  • Believe
    • Hebrews 11:6, But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.
  • Repent
    • Luke 13:3, “I tell you, no; but unless you repent you will all likewise perish. 
  • Confess
    • Romans 10:9, That if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.
  • Baptism
    • Acts 2:38, Then Peter said to them, “Repent, and let every one of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins; and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. 

  • Steadfastness
    • I Corinthians 15:58, Therefore, my beloved brethren, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that your labor is not in vain in the Lord.
