Our History

Fairview Baptist Church on Charlotte Street has been a neighborhood landmark for over 90 years. Since its founding by seven community women, the church has attempted to serve the needs of Fredericksburg and the neighboring counties. We have many members who know our community as part of their family. We welcome those new to the area and those seeking a church to join the long line of Fredericksburg area folks who have found a spiritual home at Fairview.

Our church is a Southern Baptist Church cooperating with over 36,000 similar churches around the country in missions, spiritual education, evangelism, and social action. Our worship services focus on God and His love, and spiritual support for meeting life’s experiences. You will find Fairview to be a church deeply committed to doing the Lord’s work in our area and around the world.

“Friendly” is the word you hear most often from those who visit our fellowship. Fairview folks have been known for years as an open, caring congregation. We have members from all walks of life, a broad age group representation, and varied backgrounds. Our doors are open to all who are seeking a closer walk with God in a local fellowship. Your talents, interests and skills will be welcomed to help us serve God here. We are a church that will care for you and help you share God’s love to others.
