Our Story

Walking By Faith since 1946

Written by Rev. Chris Holder, a former pastor of Faith Lutheran Church

During the mid 1940s a few families that were attending Grace Lutheran in Dallas but living in Grand Prairie started to gather for worship and Bible study with the intent to plant a new faith community that they later named Faith Lutheran Church. They would go on to build a church building that at the time was on the outskirts of town. Today that building stands at what is almost the center or heart of Grand Prairie.

In the 70 years since that first gathering, Faith has remained faithful, through both challenges and good times to its calling to proclaim the love of Christ in Grand Prairie. On April 17, 2016, more than 200 people gathered to celebrate 70 years of ministry.  One of Faith's former pastors, Jonathan Schroeder, returned to Grand Prairie from his parish in Ohio to share the message, with worship help from the Pastors of the T2C2 Network. After a spirited worship service a great meal was shared and Rev. Dr. Yohannes Mengsteab (from the Texas District of the LCMS) reminded Faith of the challenges and opportunities that remain in front of her as she serves from the “heart of Grand Prairie.”
As we enter into our 72nd year of ministry, Faith Lutheran Church continues to boldly move forward in faith.  We are committed to creating new opportunities to get to know our neighbors -- with the desire to be our community's church -- and share with them the love of Christ.  This recent season has provided Faith the opportunity to launch a Spanish-language church plant, called "Comunidad de Fe."  Beginning January 7, 2018, we rejoice in the fact that Iglesia Luterana Comunidad de Fe began worshipping weekly on our campus.  

Please keep the ministry of Faith Lutheran Church in your prayers!
