pastor-pauleyPastor Pauley was saved as a child at the Cranberry Baptist Church in Beckley, West Virginia.  He answered the call to preach at 18 and went on to receive his BA and MA degrees from Bible Colleges.  While in college he served as a pastor in Alabama and a few years after graduation.  He and his wife Nancy moved to Kannapolis, North Carolina in 1971 after the call to come and pastor what is now the Faith Baptist Church.  The church moved to its present location in 1981 and along with the church houses Faith Nursery School and Faith Christian Academy. Pastor Pauley adopted the song “We’ve Come This Far By Faith” as a theme song for the church.  He is committed to the truth of God’s Word and stands unapologetically for the fundamentals of the Faith.  The overriding theme of this website as well as the overall ministry, past, present and future is found in the verse of Scripture “…The just shall live by faith.”
