History & Registration

The church was established during the 1990’s by American missionaries. When their support from the USA stopped, they decided to move elsewhere. Since then, our local community, a handful of people, continued growing under the leadership of local members. Many interim pastors also served on a short-term basis throughout those years till 2014, when the church called its current pastor, Dr Gerhard Venter.

‘Faith Community’ is officially registered with both, the Slovak Baptist Union and the International Baptist Convention, 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.
