Our History


Winter Building Good 10a.JPG


Today Faith Baptist Church is led by Pastor Bill Stedman who has served here for over 40 years. His assistant, Jacob Dohner, runs the youth department working with teenagers. We are always out in the community seeking to help those around us as we continue to grow in the Lord and

love those around us. If you have any questions about us, or are interested in learning more about our ministries, feel free to give us a call or fill out the comment box below.

Faith Baptist Church of Posen was organized in 1958 by a small group of faithful believers unhappy with their current Church situation. Services began in a garage lent to the Church by The Rogers family and they soon called a pastor, Rev. Fred Bartz.

Faith Baptist Church and was soon able to purchase a small “Cape Cod” Style house on the corner of 149th & Kedzie Avenue. Several additions were added to the building and it is still used by the Church for Sunday School and office space.

Some wonderful men of God pastored here over its

60+ year history. They include:

Rev. Fred Bartz – Deceased
Rev. Al Anger – Missionary
Rev. F.D. Sanders – Retired
Dr. Tom Schulte – Evangelist
Dr. Jim Delashmit – Deceased
Dr. Bill Stedman – Current Pastor

In 1975 a new building was constructed on the site, and now serves as our auditorium. Land was later purchased across the street to the south which gives us plenty of parking space.
