We affiliate with the American Baptist Association and the Missionary Baptist Association of the State of Arkansas.

Our Past…

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.


Our Present…

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.

Our Purpose…

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!



We believe loving God means loving others. We believe a church should be part of the community. If you have a passion to serve, we have a place for you!

A man once gathered a crowd at the edge of Niagara Falls as he stretched a cable across the river and began to push a wheelbarrow across the Falls. The people watched in awe as the man filled the wheelbarrow with rocks and proceeded to push it back and forth over the cable. The man then asked how many in the crowd believed he could push a person across the Falls in the wheelbarrow. Everyone in the crowd raised their hand. The man then asked, “Can I get a volunteer?” Of course, all hands went down! In many respects, our salvation experience is similar. It is not enough to realize that we have all sinned and fallen short of God’s glory, as the Bible teaches us. It is not enough to be sorry for our sins and have a desire to be a better person, though repentance is an essential ingredient.
It is not even enough to understand that Jesus lived a sinless life and died to pay for our sins and rose on the third day. What we must do is by faith, get in the “wheelbarrow”. That is, we must trust completely in Jesus to forgive our sins and save us. A head knowledge of the gospel is good, but it takes believing totally in our hearts in Christ alone for salvation to take place. That means we aren’t depending on good works, church membership, or anything else except the sacrifice of God’s Son on the cross to pay for our sins.
Are you disgusted with your sin and ready to make a change? Call upon the Lord Jesus Christ. Confess your sin and your desire to be forgiven. Trust completely in Christ alone to save you and make you a home in heaven. He will be glad to hear from you!
