Faith Church is a member of the largest of these synods, the Eastern Synod,
which has more than two hundred congregations reaching from Nova Scotia almost

Kitchener, Ontario, and is led by Bishop Michael Pryse. The Eastern Synod is
made up of eight regional conferences. Faith Church is a member of the
Hamilton-Niagara Conference, which has congregations located in Brantford,
Hamilton, Oakville, Burlington, and the Niagara region. As an Evangelical
Lutheran congregation, Faith Church strives to be a true child of the
Reformation, proclaiming that salvation is solely a gift of God's grace, active
through faith in the risen Lord Jesus Christ. We live out our faith through
lives of discipleship, serving others in the name, and after the pattern, of
Jesus Christ. We bring the catholic heritage of liturgical worship and the
historic theology of the church together with a personal commitment to Jesus
Christ and an openness to the ongoing work of the Holy Spirit revealing God's
will and word for us today.
All are welcome at Faith Church. We believe that our unity is found in our
common faith in Jesus Christ, and our diversity is celebrated through the
manifestation of the Spirit's many gifts. Come, and be a part of God's family
