Dr. Eric Hankins
First Fairhope’s mission is summed up in: “First loved, love first”. It won’t take you long to discover this is truly a family rich in the relationships that matter most. Growing together, we worship, we serve, we laugh, we cry, we learn, and we reach out to our community and world with ministry that meets them at the center of their need.
Our doors are open. Our hearts are open too. If you’ve been thinking, searching, and hoping for a place to belong, a place to be loved, a place to call “home”, then we invite you to come join us at First Fairhope.
First Time Here?
As soon as you arrive on campus you’ll enter through our Commons area that faces the back parking lot. Inside you’ll be greeted with a smile and a handshake. If you need directions or assistance, our First Impressions team is ready to help!
You’ll see all kinds of people wearing all types of clothing. You are welcome to come just as you are.
We’d love to hear from you!
If you have questions about any of our events at First Fairhope, please send us a message here.

Pastor Eric has launched this prayer emphasis that you can do right there at home. 714PRAYER puts into the action the words found in 2 Chronicles 7:14. He’s asking you to go to your mailbox at 7:14am or 7:14pm and pray for our nation, our health care providers, our first responders, the sick, and the CURE! Snap a pic of your mailbox prayer time and post encouraging your friends and neighbors to join you in this time of prayer.
