Lead Pastor

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.

Pastor Eric

First Time Here?

As soon as you arrive on campus you’ll enter through our Commons area that faces the back parking lot. Inside you’ll be greeted with a smile and a handshake. If you need directions or assistance, our First Impressions team is ready to help!

You’ll see all kinds of people wearing all types of clothing. You are welcome to come just as you are.


We’d love to hear from you!
If you have questions about any of our events at First Fairhope, please send us a message here.

What’s coming up?

Prayer Walk the month of May

The month of May First Fairhope will join with other area churches to walk the area near the bayfront and prayer walk.

Plan to pray for an hour together with a friend, sitting or walking, in the areas of two Fairhope parks, the beach park south of the main pier and the Henry George Park on the bluff overlooking the bay on Magnolia Ave. We hope that each day will be covered morning and afternoon in prayer, but multiple teams are encouraged each day.

VBS is coming June 9-13

At Breaker Rock Beach, kids will learn to recognize the difference between what the world says is true and what God says is true.  Each day kids will be challenged to know that God’s truth never changes-even when it’s radically different from what some people say.

Sunday:  4:30pm – 7:00pm
Monday – Thursday 9:00am – 12:30pm

VBS is free for kids that will be completing Kindergarten through 6th grade in 2024.
Online registration is required and you can do that by clicking anywhere in this box.

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!
