The Story of Faith+Journey

The Story of Faith+Journey began in 1926.  As many stories go, a small group of dedicated people saw the need for a Christ-centered community to serve the faith needs of the West Fargo area - and beyond.  There were 95 charter members, which represented 42 families.  Services were officially begun in October 1935.  From those beginnings, Faith+Journey is now a congregation of 3,000 members across two campuses in West Fargo.


Over the years, facilities been improved, furniture has been rearranged and many things have changed.  However, the message of the Good News of Jesus has always remained the core and center of the life and work of Faith+ Journey.


We are one family with two locations.  We gather for worship at ou 2nd Avenue Campus on Saturday Evenings @ 5:00pm and Sunday Morning @ 8:30 and 11:00 am.  Sunday Worship is also available at our 40th Avenue location  @ 10:00 am.
