Our Story


Families of Faith Church began as a mission of the First Southern Baptist Church of Joliet in 1963. The first church congregation met in what was formerly a chicken coop and feed store on Fryer Street.


In 2001, we moved into our current building. God brought us through many trials that challenged our faith. We realized He was more interested in our character than anything we could build for Him.


God continues to mold us to be more like Him. We have seen Him do things only He could. As we grow, lives continue to change because He took a remnant of people and put us on mission with Him.

As ministries at FOFC have grown, we have seen people saved and lives transformed in every area! More people have heard about the saving grace of Jesus than ever before! Read more about our history by hovering over the slides below.

We would love to meet you and your family. Stop in this Sunday and follow us on Facebook and Instagram as we continue to make history for His kingdom. If you have any questions, please feel free to Contact Us anytime.
