About This Organization

Born in the 1960s, Faith Church was founded by a small but passionate group of families who wanted to know God, study the Bible, and share the hope of Christ with their community. When the church began to outgrow its rented space in downtown Allentown, the founding members pooled their resources to buy a field in the sticks of Lower Macungie on Hamilton Boulevard and started a church. There, they built a church so people in the surrounding communities would have access to the Kingdom of God. Now, decades later, thousands of people have come to know Jesus on that cornfield. Thousands of people have grown in their faith in God. Today, lives continue to be changed through the ministry of Faith Church.

Faith Church is a vibrant, healthy, and growing community of believers. Through their four services each week, approximately 1800 people gather post-covid (pre-Covid attendance was around 2500). Faith Church sees its mission as creating opportunities to give people more access to Jesus with a relational approach to ministry. They do this through creative, innovative, and forward-thinking ministry. With a focus on loving people well, the staff and members prioritize relationships, mentoring, and coaching.
