About Us

About Faith Lutheran Church


Welcome!  God's Son Jesus Christ died on the cross for all sins,  and He was raised from the dead to affirm God's declaration of forgiveness. In Holy Baptism we receive the benefits  of God's act of grace.  We rejoice with all those everywhere who call on the name of our Lord Jesus Christ--their Lord and ours. We celebrate God's on-going distribution of forgiveness in the Lord's Supper.  

Through Word and Sacrament, the Holy Spirit has reached people with the good news bout Jesus.  We help people in various ways including a food pantry.     From the VBS of 2014 nine cousins  were baptized. They are our youth group that meets every Saturday at 2 PM for Bible study, pizza, and singing. Before school starts we gather school supplies for VBS alumni. We used funds from Thrivent Action plan to buy backpacks.  On August 26 we received into membership Tom and Kathi Gilland, and after the service had a reception to honor them and also Tom and Brenda Anderson who joined Although  Kinston did not suffer as towns around us during the recent hurricanes, we ask for donations to help people like we did when Hurricane Floyd hit nineteen years ago. We have helped four households already, and aim to help many more. Our prayers go out for all the pain and destruction going on in the fires of California.

Faith Lutheran Church was chartered in 1940 and is a member of the Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod, Southeastern District. For more information about what we believe and the Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod, please vist www.LCMS.org.
