First Fairhope’s mission is summed up in: “First loved, love first”. It won’t take you long to discover this is truly a family rich in the relationships that matter most. Growing together, we worship, we serve, we laugh, we cry, we learn, and we reach out to our community and world with ministry that meets them at the center of their need.

Our doors are open. Our hearts are open too. If you’ve been thinking, searching, and hoping for a place to belong, a place to be loved, a place to call “home”, then we invite you to come join us at First Fairhope.

We are encouraged to pray without ceasing in every circumstance…even in the midst of the bleak news of today. To pray for all people, every person, every rank, every class. The Lord has not stepped up off the throne. He IS in control, and He is good. ⁠ “First of all, then, I urge that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgiving be made for all people, for kings and all who are in high positions, that we may lead a peaceful and quiet life, godly and dignified in every way.” I Timothy 2:1-2
SEND Relief is a

Membership Process

We need each other…

When the church started 2000 years ago, they didn’t have a building—they had each other! The Bible paints a beautiful picture of people worshipping, praying together, taking care of each other, and doing life together.  They were more than acquaintances. They were family! A commitment to each other is how the church started, and it’s still that way today! If we want to experience real life, we’ve got to do life together. When you become a member of First Fairhope, you’re joining a family where you take care of your brothers and sisters, and they take care of you!
