Faith Church started as a vision of a few United Methodists living in the northwest area of Bradenton and the Manatee County beaches. With a generous donation of property in 1985, work began in developing a new church as small groups met in homes and gathered together for special events.

Our first worship service was on September 7th, 1986 at the Palma Sola Elementary School and on February 8th, 1987, Faith Church was chartered and a building committee elected. Construction began with ground breaking in May, 1988, and occupation of our beautiful multi-purpose building occurred June 11, 1989.

Our charter members, rejoicing in our many blessings, have experienced Faith’s life through the years. As we welcome guests, visitors, and “snow birds”, we invite you to become part of our continued journey in the Kingdom of God.

Faith United Methodist Church is a neighborhood church, located in northwest Bradenton, FL, where you will experience enriching community events, meet outgoing, upbeat people and hear inspiring messages of God’s boundless love. Whether you are an individual, couple or family – young or young-at-heart – local, seasonal or just visiting, you will find new friends awaiting you at Faith Church.

We invite you to explore our many worship, fellowship, and learning opportunities. Please contact us for more information by calling
