About Faithful Five

Faithful Five launched a church in Tacoma April 2019, d.b.a. "Tacoma Faith." We began in our living room. By September 2019 we had moved into a church building near Titlow Park. We saw growth. From the fall of 2019 to the spring of 2020 all our activities doubled in size.


In the Roman empire, Emperor Nero shut down the church. In the Soviet Union, Stalin did. In the USA, 2020, Governor Inslee shut down the churches in Washington State. Churches were deemed non-essential, while pot shops and casinos were deemed essential. It became practically impossible for us to meet the way we used to.


We sought God's face for guidance. We were to relocate our family and ministry to Post Falls, ID, where Christians are allowed to worship. For practical purposes, Faithful Five has relocated to Spokane, WA. Faithful Five remains active in preaching of the gospel, evangelism, missions, Bible translation, etc. We meet weekly for worship, prayer, Bible-study, and evangelism on Fridays, 5-7 pm, at 218 South Howard, Spokane, WA, as well as in homes and on the street witnessing throughout the week.


Faithful Five may ordain ministers, support ministers financially, support evangelistic and missionary efforts, such as street evangelism or mission trips. Ministers that Faithful Five support preach the gospel and conduct baptisms, communions, weddings, funerals, street evangelism, street church, Bible-studies, Bible-translations, mission trips, etc. We see lives transformed, set free from drugs, and come to Jesus every week.

How does Faithful Five differ from FaithC Inc?

Faithful Five is a non-profit ministry, 501(c)(3). Donations to Faithful Five are tax-deductible. Faithful Five's primary function is to be a conduit for revival and church growth, through supporting ordained ministers engaged in the preaching of the gospel.


FaithC Inc. is a C-Corporation. Donations to FaithC are not tax-deductible. FaithC's primary function is to supply the services of choirs, concerts, courses, classes, church, and coffee houses. For example, FaithC may produce a concert and sell tickets, create and sell courses and classes, or give private singing lessons. 


Do they overlap? No, but they do collaborate. Faithful Five is strictly about supporting the preaching of the gospel, whereas FaithC produces and sells services (such as concerts, classes, coffee, Bibles, and private lessons). 


How can I tell whether an activity is carried out by Faithful Five or by FaithC? That's easy. If it is a Christian ministry and free of charge, it's Faithful Five. Otherwise, it is FaithC Inc. 


Is FaithC a Church? Church consists of people, not buildings or bylaws. FaithC is a Christian company that supplies Christian services, products, and events. Where two or three are gathered in His name, there Jesus Christ is in our midst. That is "church" in the broadest interpretation of the word. But make no mistake, FaithC  is a C-Corporation, not a 501(c)(3). Donations to FaithC are not tax-deductible. For tax-deductible donations, please give to Faithful Five.
