Household of Faith (formerly Faith Tabernacle Church) was founded by Ed Bledsoe on November 22, 1971, at the old Monterrey Church located at Gold Place.

This group numbered about 35 or 40 people, besides children. After four months in a house, they moved into a brick structure that has now been torn down and turned into the school office.

In November of 1974, they moved into the second sanctuary for worship and in the fall of 1977 broke ground for the second phase of the building. In 1985, the church moved into its present sanctuary that seats 1,200 people.

Pastor Scott Bledsoe became pastor of Household of Faith in December of 1997. Many who have been hungry for more of God’s Spirit and His Word have come from various denominational backgrounds to seek and to find Christ their Savior, their deliverer and their healer. We pray that you would find your place, promise, and purpose here at Household of Faith!



Pastor Ed Bledsoe started the church with about 40 people in November of 1971 in a small building in St. Amant, Louisiana.

We purchased our present property and built a small brick building here in March of 1972.


Our growth continued, and we moved into a larger building in November of 1974, then began the 2nd phase of that building in 1977.

During this same time frame, we opened a private school, at that time called Faith Academy.


We moved in the present dome building.

Pastor Ed retired in December. of 1997 and his son, Scott Bledsoe, was set in as Pastor at that time.


We became a part of ARC- The Association of Related Churches in 2003. ARC is a network of churches with a focus on planting life-giving churches, both nationally and internationally.

In 2007, we opened our new high school campus and re-named our school system- Ascension Christian.


In April of 2018, we launched our second campus, Mt. Zion, in the Galvez area and we are excited about God’s plans for the future of the Household of Faith. As a church, we firmly believe, the best is yet to come.
