2002

On Sunday, January 13, 2002, Pastor Trunell D. Felder shared the next level of service and worship to our God and King through the new vision and mission for New Faith Baptist Church.

Within the short time Pastor Felder has been the shepherd of New Faith, our membership has grown from 2,200 to over 6,000 adding a 4th worship service (1-Saturday and 3 on Sunday 7:30am, 9:30am, 11:30am). We have been heavily involved in evangelism and community efforts within Matteson and surrounding communities. We have even taken the love of Christ (God’s Son) outside of Matteson to Ford Heights with the New Faith Baptist Church Ford Heights Faith Fair. Ford Heights being one of the most impoverished communities in the State of Illinois (pop. 4,000), New Faith provided free health screenings for adults and children, free school supplies for every child in the village, free baby supplies, a care package for the residents, job fair, a carnival and a gospel concert. Many lives were transformed and hearts turned toward Christ.
