The church was established during the 1990’s by American missionaries. When their support from the USA stopped, they moved elsewhere. The church continued under the leadership of members of the church, with many ups-and-downs, often with just a handful of people. Many interim pastors also served the church on a short-term basis throughout the years, but in 2014 the church called its current pastor, Dr Gerhard Venter, from South Africa.



Faith Community is officially registered with both the Slovak Baptist Union (http://www.baptist.sk) and the International Baptist Convention (www.ibc-churches.org/) as the International Baptist Church Bratislava. The name Faith Community is simply easier on the tongue and to use in everyday language, but also a true reflection of what we seek to be in the city of Bratislava.
