Not by might, or by power, but by my spirit
saith the Lord of Host
Pastor Patrick D. Foy, a man called to preach and teach the uncompromising word of God, has resided in California for over 12 years. Pastor Foy and his wife Kelley are the proud parents of two sons, Kellis, and Kellten. Pastor Foy acknowledged his call to the ministry in 1993 while attending the Greater Faith Baptist Church in Los Angeles, California, under the leadership of Pastor Fred Autry.
Always willing to submit to the will of God, Pastor Foy heard and answered the call to relocate to Apple Valley, California in 1997. He and his family united with the Burning Bush Baptist Church of Victorville where Pastor Foy served as an associated minister under the leadership of Dr. David Denson Jr.
In July 2000 Pastor Foy heard and answered the call to Pastor a local church, and he became the Pastor of United in Christ Baptist Church of Apple Valley, where he still currently and lovingly serves as their Pastor. The Christian community in the High Desert has received this anointed man of God. Evidenced by the support of the local churches and pastors in the area, and by the continuous growth of the congregation.
Pastor Foy has a distinct and refreshing way of preaching God's Word. Many have come and have heard God speak through Pastor Foy. People have received Christ into their lives, while others have been convinced and their lives transformed by Pastor Foy's down to earth manner in preaching the Good News.
Through Pastor Foy's teaching, the United in Christ congregation is learning how to live by faith, have an effective prayer life, have regular fellowship with God through bible study, honor God through their tithes and offerings, and have effective praise and worship experiences.
Furthermore, he teaches that through obedience and commitment, the believer develops a personal relationship with God through His Son Jesus Christ. Pastor Foy is committed to these principles and the spiritual growth of all who follow his teachings is evident.
