It is my privilege to introduce you to the wonderful Family of Fairfield Bay Baptist Church. It truly is a “Family”…a Family created and sustained by our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
• We all bear His Name.
• We are bound together by our individual experiences of salvation with Him.
• We gather together in love, enjoying one another’s company.
• We joyfully worship together giving Him the honor He so clearly deserves.
• Together, we study His Word and seek to walk accordingly.
• And we join our energies, gifts, and efforts together to serve Him.
The good thing about this Family is that we want others to join us. We would be pleased and honored if God were to lead you to become a part of the fellowship of Fairfield Bay Baptist Church. If you have worshiped with us and reside in the Fairfield Bay area, we hope you will pray, asking God if He is directing you to join your spirit with ours. If you haven’t worshiped with us and have yet to find a church home in the Bay, we give you an enthusiastic invitation to attend one of our worship services.
Though I’ve done my best to describe the Family of Fairfield Bay Baptist Church, the best way to experience it is “in person”! Come worship with us! We will be watching for you!

Pastor Kara Shaw
Pastor Kara would like to share the following message:
Grace to you and peace from God our
Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.
This greeting from Paul models for us what Christian relationship looks like at its very root. Every relationship between Christians is founded on the Grace which is given to us in abundance at our baptism where we are welcomed into the Christian family and on the holistic peace (Shalom) that is promised — in the presence of the Holy Spirit, which is also one of the holy gifts we receive at baptism.
– Pastor Kara Shaw –
Reverend Kara Shaw grew up in Wheeling, WV, and graduated from Wheeling Jesuit University in 2005 with a BS in Mathematics and Secondary Education with minors in Special Education and Elementary Education. While in college Kara was a Disney College Program Intern working at Magic Kingdom and DisneyQuest Parks. Kara attended Trinity Lutheran Seminary in Columbus, OH starting in 2005. She served internships at Christ Lutheran Church in Antioch, TN (suburb of Nashville) in 2007-2008 and Bethel Lutheran Church in Saint Clair Shores, MI (suburb of Detroit) in 2009-2010. Kara did supply work at Trinity Lutheran Church in Bridgeport from 2008-2009. In 2011 Kara graduated with a Master of Divinity degree from TLS and was approved for Ordination by the West Virginia Western Maryland Synod and Southwestern Pennsylvania Synod joint candidacy committee for Ordination. She was ordained on July 10, 2011 by Bishop Ralph Dunkin at St. Mark Evangelical Lutheran Church of Wheeling, WV. Kara received her first call to a two-point parish, Zion Lutheran Church, Shipman, IL and St. John’s Lutheran Church, Dorchester, IL in June of 2011, where she severed until August of 2016.
In 2008 Kara married Wm. Travis Shaw at Oglebay Resort and Conference Center’s formal gardens, after four years of dating and a two-year engagement. She is the mother to two toddler daughters (current date: 10/10/18). The girls are known by their screen names, Doodle Bug and Little Bird. Kara is currently called to serve Peace Lutheran Church in Edgemont, AR. Kara’s first memory of being called to ordained ministry is telling her childhood pastor, Pastor Rick, in the narthex that when she grew up she was going to be a pastor just like him. Kara is also a self-described “Disneyphile” whose most famous original quote is also the mission statement of her ministry, “If Jesus lives in our heart and Figment lives in our imagination, do you think they ever get together and play?” Kara’s mission in life is to help others love with Faith, Hope, and Pixie Dust.

Education and Fellowship.
Pastor’s Tony And Darla Thomas
There is one true God: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
Jesus was not only a historical figure, but the Son of God.
He lived a life on earth, both human and divine.
The Holy Spirit comes and empowers our life, giving birth to new character and new gifts. We are all able to experience being fully immersed in the Spirit and receive a powerful prayer language.
The Bible is given to us by God as His Word. It shows us how to live.
We live in a world that is not only natural, but spiritual.
There are spiritual forces at work both for good and for evil.
All people are in need of being connected to God.
Our faith in Jesus makes this connection possible.
Water baptism and the Lord’s Supper are powerful spiritual
experiences that God uses to connect with us and express
the fullness of His love towards us.
We are spiritual beings who will live for eternity.
We get a simple, but life-altering choice
to live with God or live alone.
The church can be a powerful expression of God on the earth.
Our desire is that every believer would be active in the local
church, fulfilling the Great Commission.
Preaching the Good News of Jesus Christ and growing the Kingdom
and the church by conversion.
Developing people by a process of teaching and mentoring.
The church works by empowering every member with a role.
