We affiliate with the American Baptist Association and the Missionary Baptist Association of the State of Arkansas.
On June 21, 2000, a group of 14 people met together for a time of prayer and Bible study. From this meeting, the seeds were sown for the idea of beginning a new Missionary Baptist Church on the growing south side of Fort Smith. Interest grew and on July 13th the group voted to call themselves Living Faith MBC. On August 20th, Living Faith called Bro. Bill Driggers, Jr. as Pastor and Center Fork MBC in Hot Springs, AR, voted to serve as our sponsoring church. The work began with 64 members. After initially meeting in homes, the church occupied three locations around town before moving into our new building.
In January 2001, a 16-acre parcel of land was purchased at the intersection of Highway 253 and Highway 45. In December 2001, the first phase of construction began. In July 2002, the congregation with 129 members moved into the new facility.
Living Faith MBC is a church with a heart for people. We actively seek new members to join us in the great work of God. We are developing several ministries, including a youth ministry to help our families train up their children in the nurture of our Lord
We strive to contact our elderly members on a regular basis to see about their needs. Hospital visitation is also an important way we seek to demonstrate our concern for our extended church family. We have many fellowship opportunities that encourage building relationships with fellow believers.
Living Faith is cultivating a group of believers where faith grows, hope is seen and love is felt! We feel this is best accomplished be the preaching and teaching of the eternal truths of God’s Word. Our worship is with a purpose! Our service is motivated by love! Our mission is to share Christ with everyone!
