Pathway was planted in 2007 by a team dedicated to see Christ brought to the city of Fayetteville. Since then, God has created a community that loves and equips one another to accomplish that purpose. Pathway believes in helping every person find their God-given purpose, and helping them to persist in that purpose. This is done through believing, remembering, and celebrating who God is. We want to grow stronger together through the unity of the Holy Spirit, as we help each other live out our purpose. We'd love to have you become a part of our community!

These are the things that we focus on here at Pathway to help us fulfill our purpose as a church and as individuals.


The Bible is a vital part of every believer's life. The truth of God's Word provides guidance for life, connection with God, comfort for those who are hurting, and so much more. Becoming a disciplined reader of scripture helps a believer fulfill their God-given purpose.


Prayer is a believer's direct connection to God. This privilege has been given to us because of what Jesus did through His life, death, and resurrection. God wants to hear from us. He answers our prayers. Dedicating time to prayer uniquely grows a person's faith in God.


Serving others builds a pathway of real connection to believers and non-believers alike. Demonstrating love for our neighbors through serving them gives them a glimpse of the love of God. Providing for other people's needs is a humbling experience that makes the message of Jesus evident.


Telling others about the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus is the job of every believer. The act of sharing one's story about how God demonstrated His love for them, and their response in faith, multiplies the work of God in their life. Uniting as a church to tell our city about Jesus is our vision for Pathway.
