Faith Evangelical Presbyterian Church was founded in the fall of 1987 by a group of committed followers of Christ who sensed that God was leading them to withdraw from a congregation affiliated with the Presbyterian Church (USA), because of that denomination’s increasing theological liberalism. They did so only after a lengthy period of prayer and study, and they did so in order to be true to their biblical convictions. The newly-formed church, which met for worship the first time on Sunday, October 4, 1987, at Key Middle School in Springfield, Virginia, was chartered as a congregation of the Evangelical Presbyterian Church (EPC) in 1988. More… 

As a Christ-centered fellowship of believers, our mission is to worship and glorify God, share the saving love of Jesus with our neighbors, and build mature believers who are equipped to serve Christ in the church and around the world — all according to God’s authoritative Word!

Rev. Dr. Neil Smith was the Senior Pastor from 1997-2022, and retired after 25 years of service to Faith Church. Neil and his wife, Mary Sue, live in West Springfield. They are the parents of three children and many grandchildren. He sensed a call from God to full-time ministry at the age of fourteen. He considers himself a blessed man to have the privilege to serve as a Pastor. We are grateful to God for his faithful preaching of the Word, pastoral leadership, and committed service to his congregation.

Rev. Dr. W. Graham Smith, who had been pastor of Fairlington Presbyterian Church in Alexandria, Virginia since 1970, served as Faith’s pastor from its founding in 1987 until his retirement in October 1996. We are grateful to God for his pastoral leadership and faithful preaching of the Word of God. After a long and fruitful ministry, in which he served as the Moderator of the 13th General Assembly of the EPC, Dr. Smith was called home to heaven unexpectedly in March 2000, at the age of 79.


The Vision Team was established by the Session of Faith Church in January 2017 to develop and help implement God’s Great Commission Vision plan for our church in our community.

Building on the strong biblical foundation laid by the founders of Faith, we desire to be a Christ-centered, missionally- focused family of believers who embrace our calling to know Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord, and to make Him known in our community and throughout the world. More…
