Fairview Baptist Church is located in Apex, NC. Where we gather is a short drive from Cary, Fuquay Varina, Holly Springs, and Greater Raleigh. 


In May of 1987 a group of people gathered from three area churches to pray about planting a new church to reach the community, and Fairview was born. Since then God has been so good to us, and we believe that He has great things in store for our church family as we strive to remain faithful to our calling and rely on Him for the fruit.


We exist to make disciples of Jesus Christ. We are a church family that focuses on heart transformation and character growth by applying the gospel to all of life. We are a church family that loves one another in a way that reflects the power of the gospel. We are a church family that defines our lives by mission in all that we do both here and worldwide.


Join us on a Sunday morning at 9:00am for Life Groups and 10:30am for worship!
