A Word from the Pastor

 

Hello!
We appreciate you taking the time out of your busy schedule to visit us here at Fairview Baptist Church on the web. We realize with the busy lives people live taking just a few moments is a challenge, so thank you!
We would like to take this opportunity to invite you to one of our services. Sunday School is every Sunday morning at 10am. Sunday morning service follows at 11am and the Sunday evening service is at 6pm. We have a midweek Bible class on Wednesday evenings at 7pm. Youth classes are during the Sunday School and Wednesday evening times as well.
What to expect when attending Fairview: singing from hymnals, traditional worship and a conservative environment. We believe in prayer and take a common sense/practical approach to the scriptures.  The preaching & teaching is from the King James Bible and is done through an expository method. We believe verse by verse, chapter by chapter and book by book is the best way to Educate & Illuminate the saints of God. Doctrinal preaching & teaching is one of the main focuses at Fairview, with the family being right there amongst it. We live in a world where most anything is accepted in society and as the writers of Jude & II Timothy so clearly put it, this acceptance has crept into the church and led many captive. We believe there are many that are "carried about with divers and strange doctrines" as well as "carried about with every wind of doctrine," and so we believe truth is a very much needed item from the pulpit. Shouting may excite, singing's may bring the crowd and social events may soothe the flesh, however it will be the word of God that lays the foundation and that builds the church. Don't mistake what we say, we have people that shout, sing and we have some good fellowships, but the word of God is on the forefront of Fairview's priority.
We believe Jesus Christ said that He would build His church, however any good builder knows you must have strong bricks to use. Educated believers in the teachings of Jesus Christ will be strong bricks He can use and with the Holy Spirit being the mortar that holds it all together, well it will be a church that will stand in the storms that try to tear it down.
Again, we invite you to visit us. Who knows, maybe you'll stay and become a part of the new work of the old church on the hill.
Until He comes again,
Pastor Chris Blythe
