In the summer of 1990, Fairfield Baptist began as a mission of Sagemont and Houston Northwest Baptist Church. The church staff has grown from one to six pastors, a children’s minister, five Christian counselors, and additional administrative personnel serving a congregation of approximately 750 people. Services began in the Fairfield Athletic Club. After the church purchased 18 acres of land, the first worship building was completed in August of 1995. In 2007, the education building was built and in 2011, a 700-seat worship facility was completed. Through the years, FBC has been known as a church that teaches and preaches from the Scriptures in a way that feeds and leads people to know God better and love Him more.
Fairfield Baptist Church is strategically located to serve the people of Cypress and the Northwest Houston area with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. We are a multi-generational, family-oriented church with programs for all ages, from preschool to senior adults. Thriving programs include AWANA, Fairfield Student Ministries, and many adult small groups. Our goal is to be known as the best Bible teaching church in Northwest Houston, striving to build Christ-centered families grounded in God’s Word. One way we accomplish this objective is by providing multiple ‘How to Study the Bible’ seminars to equip members to dig deeper into God’s Word through personal study.
FBC offers two Sunday morning worship services. We seek to be authentic in our worship, prayer-focused, and theologically-sound in our preaching, teaching, and music selection. Members are encouraged to meet regularly in small groups, supporting one another in more personal settings (Acts 2:42). FBC provides childcare, coaching, and facilities to ensure all families have the opportunity to get further involved.
All members are encouraged to serve, both inside and outside the church walls. We provide opportunities for youth, adults, and families to serve together. Some local ministries include support of a North Houston church-plant as well as an outreach to a lower-income area in a nearby community. The church serves the students and supports teachers at a Title 1 school on a monthly basis throughout the year. In partnership with local churches, FBC regularly serves communities in the Rio Grande Valley. Internationally, FBC financially supports missions and ministries in Honduras, Africa, and missionaries in closed countries. FBC also contributes to The Cooperative Program of the Southern Baptist Convention. Working together as the body of Christ, we sponsor several other Christian communities through facility-sharing. We currently open our buildings for Pakistani and Chinese Christian fellowships. We are committed to James 1:27 and the Biblical command to take care of the least of these. FBC hosts an annual fun run and fall event to promote and raise funds for adoption, foster, and orphan care needs, both locally and abroad. We have supported multiple adoptions for Christian families in our church, local community, and beyond. FBC also sponsors an annual retreat for current and prospective foster and adoptive parents. We partner with other churches and ministries to support foster and adoptive families.The church supports a gospel-centered, professional counseling ministry that serves both the FBC members and the surrounding community. The counselors minister to children, teens, and adults, sharing the love of Christ. It has grown from one to eight Christian counselors in two years.
