The Story of FaithJourney

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 at the center of the Downtown 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 a family - with all of the challenges and celebrations that go along with being a family that loves each other and lives out our faith together.  We gather for worship at the 2nd Avenue Campus on Wednesdays @ 6:30pm and Sunday Morning @ 9:00 am and 11:00am.


We are embarking on a new campaign to replace our ageing east wing with a new office complex and youth center.  The original worship center and feelowing hall of the church as served well beyond its service life and now is in need of a major overhaul.  Check back to see what we are up to and feel free to join us as we grow to make an impact and a difference in the name of Christ!

Our Mission

Mission Statement: A mission statement communicates why we believe we exist. Without a mission - we don’t need to be here. So a mission statement is unique to this community and it reflects our understanding of our call to ministry.
