ABOUT US
WHY WE ARE HERE
Faith Builders International Inc. is a church dedicated to building people's faith and framing their world by the Word of God.  Through the outreaches of this ministry, people are finding Jesus Christ as their Savior and reaching for a future with hope.

Faith Builders is located in downtown Desoto, Kansas in the "heart of America."  DeSoto is conveniently located between the vibrant city of Kansas City and the college town of Lawrence.  We love our thriving community and strive to provide a welcoming, healthy church that is a light to our city.
OUR PASTORS
In 1996, Philip Steele heard God speak to his heart.  God instructed our pastor to take Hebrews 11:3 to heart, to build people's faith and frame their world by the Word of God.  Since that moment, Pastor Steele has dedicated his life to helping people grow in God and be strong in faith.

Pastor Michelle joins her husband in his commitment to the Word.  Michelle knows God's life-changing power from first hand experience.  Her zeal and determination to spread the Word stems from the depth of despair from which Jesus delivered her.
WHAT WE BELIEVE
Sound Bible teaching, praise & worship. We are a fellowship of believers under the Lordship of Jesus Christ; We desire to be conformed into His image by the power of the Holy Spirit. We are not a denomination. We are simply a fellowship of believers brought together by God’s love and common beliefs.

  • We believe that the Bible is the inspired Word of God
  • We believe that salvation comes through repentance by faith in the atonement of Jesus Christ.
  • We believe in the redemptive work of Jesus Christ on the cross and that it provides healing of the human body in answer to the prayer of faith.
  • We believe in the baptism of the Holy Spirit and according to Acts 2:4 it is for all believers who ask for it.
  • We believe that the blessed hope of the church is the second coming of the Lord.
