Faith Baptist Church was started in 1955 in the heart of the San Fernando Valley. Five years later, Dr. Roland Rasmussen was called to pastor this small church. He preached with passion and concern for the people of the San Fernando Valley and its surrounding communities, never realizing the plans God had for this ministry.
After being at Faith Baptist Church for three years, Pastor Rasmussen felt the need to start a Biblically sound and academically-challenging Christian school. In 1963, the doors to Faith Baptist Schools were opened. What began as a single building has grown into a large, thriving church and school ministry.
