Our Mission & Purpose

Fayette Baptist Church exists to KNOW God Intimately, GROW Disciples Purposely, and GO Serve Intentionally.

Our Story

"Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us" 

Ephesians 3:20


Fayette Baptist Church was established in August of 2012 in the center of Fayette County, Tennessee. The Lord led us to plant and grow a church to minister to people of all walks of life throughout our community. The church began at West Jr. High School in Oakland, where we met for 3 years. God allowed us to reach many people for Him and blessed the church immeasurably more than we could have every imagined. 


In 2015, we acquired, renovated, and expanded an old car dealership on Highway 64 in the geographical center of Fayette County, that we still meet in today. God expanded our ministry in a variety of ways including an Apartment Ministry, Restoration & Recovery Ministries, a local food pantry & clothes closet, and most recently, a Christian School. 


We will continue to seek the Lord and do our best to follow His plans for our church and ministry! We strive to continue to fulfill our church's mission in everything we do, while also remaining faithful to our Seven Core Values. We continue to pray Ephesians 3:20 over every step our church takes and we look forward to all that God is going to do in & through our people!

    The Church living and ministering in one accord, doctrinally and socially. (Acts 2:43-47)
