History

Our church began as Filipino Christian Outreach in August 1997 when Pastor Tim, his wife Cristy, together with 7 couples all passionate for God and with a vision to reach out to the community to share His love and to minister in His name, armed only with their faith and love to God.

Filipino Christian Outreach held its first worship service on the 3rd Sunday of August 1997 at the Grantham Green Community Centre in St. Albans with around 30 people. After few months, the ministry moved to the Altona Meadows Community Centre and then to the Filipino Fiesta Community Centre as its growth demanded larger quarters.

In June 1999 Filipino Christian Outreach became an affiliate member of the Baptist Union of Victoria thus the name “Faith Christian Community Church” came to being, the church grew in numbers and the meeting place at the Filipino Fiesta Community Centre could no longer accommodate the growing numbers of people, so in January 2002, the church moved to Laverton Civic Centre.

In January 2011, due to renovations at the Laverton Civic Center, we have to relocate and God has been gracious to provide a building, that we can share with fellow believers, and hold our worship service and Sunday school in the afternoon, while the resident members of Altona Baptist Church hold theirs in the morning.

In October 2011, another blessing poured out and this time near our ministry house. We moved to the Deer Park Hall to hold our afternoon services.

In March 2012, the Derrimut Community Centre opened to us another community that we can reach and allowed us to return to a morning gathering.

Our ministries and services are run by dedicated and passionate volunteers who are all equally passionate in their respective ministries, that’s why we take pride with our volunteers who are instrumental with our success through God’s empowerment.

Faith Christian Community Church is a church that seeks to influence our local and global community. We have mission outreach with ICAN Learning Centre in Pasay City. We are also in the process of organizing a mission exploration team for the purpose of expanding our global mission outreach ministry.

Although the journey thus far has been filled with tremendous expectation, it is the journey yet ahead that we anticipate with even greater excitement, We are a church passionate to impact our local and global community by helping people fulfill their personal destinies by discovering the winner within them through a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.

Our desire is “to connect people to Christ” “to know Christ and to make Him known” we honour our God Jehovah because He is worthy of our praise. And as our name proclaim it is with the eyes of ‘FAITH’ that we see souls coming into the Kingdom of God, we see the sick being healed, chain being broken, stronghold being demolished in His Name, and we believe that our God Jehovah will continue to do great and mighty works in our midst.

We invite you to journey with us and together experience a loving and gracious God who is personal and real.
