About SOAR Magazine

SOAR Magazine is Faith’s alumni publication. It is typically a 16-page printing that is produced two times per year on average. Due to the significance of Faith’s centennial season and the desire to highlight the historic occasion, more emphasis was placed on a larger-scale project, which resulted in a 74-page Centennial Edition magazine—the largest magazine ever produced by Faith. The Centennial Edition SOAR gave an overview of Faith’s history, told of its connection to the General Association of Regular Baptist Churches, highlighted the history of Faith Athletics, and told stories of some of the school’s oldest-living alumni and longtime employees.


About Rooted in Faith

Rooted in Faith is a recently-published 328-page book that recaps Faith Baptist Bible College’s entire 100-year history. It was written and designed by the Faith Baptist Bible College Communications Department as a hardcover, coffee table book, with an equal distribution of pictures and written content that highlight the events and people that have shaped Faith’s history since 1921. The book was inspired by Dr. John L. Patten’s “For The Truth’s Sake,” which told the school’s history for the first 50 years and was published in 1979. Rooted in Faith is available through the Faith Bookstore and can be purchased in person at the Faith Bookstore or through mail order at fbbcbooks.com.
