Pathway Baptist is a church family in Fayetteville. We desire to demonstrate the love of Jesus Christ to our community by  sharing the hope that comes only through the power of His Word.

We are a growing group of believers who gather together for fellowship, prayer, and study of the Bible. We are focused on reaching out to Fayetteville one person at a time, one relationship at a time. 

We want to grow stronger together in Christian community, as we help each other draw closer to God.

We'd love to have you become a part of our community!


These are the three things that we focus on here at Pathway. In our pursuit of these, we trust in the Lord and follow His will. 


The Bible is the blueprint on how we should live our lives. We strongly believe that if we follow the Word that we will grow stronger as a community, and close to God. We rely heavily on what the Bible says so that we may not stray away from the path that God has set before us.


As long as we keep our focus on God we can not stray. God has set forth a path for us to follow. He has a very specific set of plans that he wants us to follow, and it is our mission to follow His instructions as closely as possible. We understand that we all fall short of the glory of God. We pray and work everyday to do our best to live for Him.


Love for one another is crucial as we grow stronger as a community of believers. We feel that engaging in fellowship is something that God has called us to live in daily. If we continue to reach the lost and broken and extend grace, God will bless us for our efforts.
