Who We Are

We believe a healthy church is one with a balance of both the Word of God and the Spirit of God. When the Spirit of God and the Word of God come in contact with willing hearts, it makes an impact, a change takes place. Personal purpose and worth as well as vision and destiny are all affected.

Our Mission

The mission of Faith Christian Center is to love God, to love others, and to magnify the name of Jesus Christ. The vision of our church is to glorify our God and Savior, Jesus Christ, to make true disciples throughout all the nations by means of missionary activity and support, to minister the ordinances, to edify believers, and to do all that is sovereignly possible and biblically permissible to magnify the name of Jesus.


Our leadership team recognizes the authority of God, and realizes that we are shepherds who serve under the Chief Shepherd, Jesus Christ. We desire to devote ourselves to prayer and to the ministry of the Word. Our passion and goal is to equip the believers for the work of the ministry until we all attain maturity in the fullness of Christ.

Meet Our Pastors

Dr. Bill & Dr. Alice Staten

We have always believed in the excellence of ministry. From the Nursery through the Children’s Church and Youth into the sanctuary to ushers, greeters, praise and worship, and to the Pastor. We realize the importance of excellence in ministry is a valuable asset to any church. We believe that people today are looking for a church with balanced leadership, discipleship, and outward vision, yet with the infrastructure to meet the needs of their family.
We have been in ministry for almost thirty years, serving others as well as being Senior Pastors. During that time we have been involved as associates helping in the development of new works, and we understand the importance of the supportive roles in the local church. As Senior Pastors we have taken existing works and enlarged both their vision and their attendance.We have also helped in establishing three Bible Training Centers and an Accredited College of Theology for adults entering into leadership positions or ministry.

We have several graduates now in full and part time ministry or missions around the world. Bill is a graduate of Rhema Bible Training Center, Tulsa, OK. Alice is a graduate of Victory Bible Training Center, Huntington, WV. We have both received our Master of Arts degree as well as our Doctor of Theology degrees from North Carolina College of Theology in Wilmington, NC.
Our ministry of teaching and preaching the un-compromised Word of God will be beneficial to every individual in seeing Biblical truths from a practical viewpoint that will result in a stronger more meaningful Christian walk.
Our calling can be summed up in one word, “Impact.” We believe that God has called us to impact the lives of people, families, communities, the nation and the world. The word “Impact” means: a meeting of force coming together, creating an undeniable change.
