Fairway Baptist is a plural-elder lead church affiliated with the Southern Baptist Convention. Our church exists solely for the glory of God and to build His kingdom in Wichita Falls as it is in heaven. We strive to be an authentic, gospel-focused community marked by devotion to Christ and sacrificial love of each other. Our ambition is to make much of God as a church corporately as it is in our lives individually.
We believe that the Holy Bible is the inspired Word of God and the ultimate authoritative basis for our beliefs. We affirm the doctrinal statements outlined in 'The 2000 Baptist Faith & Message.'

Our worship service is an accurate reflection of both our congregation and the elders - blended. Music is lead by several members of the church on rotation and as such style varies week to week. We believe that theology is taught not merely by the sermons we hear but also in the songs we sing. As such we place a high regard on content and theologically sound lyrics. Musically our services include old hymns, new hymns, and both traditional and contemporary praise and worship songs.
On preaching, we agree with CH Spurgeon:
“The motto of all true servants of God must be, ‘We preach Christ; and him crucified.’ A sermon without Christ in it is like a loaf of bread without any flour in it. No Christ in your sermon, sir? Then go home, and never preach again until you have something worth preaching.”
Depending on the series preaching can be either topical or expository and is primarily the responsibility of the lead teaching elder, Scott West.
