A Little About Us

We are a church located in Wisconsin Rapids near Mid-State Technical College and Washington Elementary School.  We as a congregation who whole-heartedly believe that we should be a blessing on the community.  Our vision is to ""To glorify God by serving our community with the love of Christ." (Matthew 28.18-20).  Over the years we have opened our doors to many and offered a free meal each month to anyone who wants to join us.  We have fostered a relationship with Washington Elementary, and have taken the time to talk to those that may be unable to leave their homes.  We ultimately want to glorify God and put love into action, by intentionally connecting with, embracing,

and serving our community.

Some History

Our church is part of one of the newest active denominations in the United States, the Alliance of Reformed Churches (ARC).  It is a historic denomination coming out of the Reformation when the church was “reformed” according to the Word of God.

1628

Our former denomination, the RCA, was established in New York in 1628, roughly 150 years before US independence was won.

1917

Faith Reformed has its ministry beginnings sometime during 1898 at Vesper Wisconsin.  Our congregation was organized and an early building was dedicated in 1917.

1946

In 1946 the congregation moved to Wisconsin Rapids and built a church, located on the corner of Wylie and 14th Street North.

1985

During 1985, having out grown our second building, the church built and moved into our present facilities located at 1321 32nd Street North.

2016

On September 11-12, 2016, we celebrated 100 years of ministry in Central Wisconsin.

2022

In March of 2022 we officially left the Reformed Church of America (RCA) and joined the Alliance of Reformed Churches (ARC).
