Fairview Baptist Church is an independent, fundamental, old-fashioned, separated, King James Bible Believing Baptist church. What exactly does that mean?
Independent means that we are not affiliated with any denominations, conventions, associations, or fellowships. There is no one outside the church that forces doctrinal or administrative policies upon our local congregation. We are truly independent.
Fundamental is a word that has been misrepresented in the media. Fundamental simply means that we believe in the doctrines that were taught by Jesus Christ. By Fundamental we mean that we pattern our church after the fundamentals of the New Testament church that you find in the book of Acts.

We do not have to adapt to worldly tactics, dress, or entertainment to reach the world for Christ. Old Fashioned simply means that sin is sin whether it is the 1950's or the 21st Century.
Separated means that while we must live amidst the world we do not have to live like the world. We should be different in how we dress, how we talk, and what entertainment we participate in. We are separated from the world that we might be separated unto God and live more like Christ each day. Again, this does not imply we must live without modern-day advances, but that we must use this new-age technology in a manner that would be honoring and glorifying to the Lord Jesus Christ.
