GOODLETSVILLE, TN — Fairfield Missionary Baptist Church celebrates 135 years as “the oldest new church” in Goodlettsville, TN, transforming lives through fellowship, discipleship, ministry, mission, and worship. Founded in 1883, Fairfield is under the visionary leadership of Pastor Howard E. Jones Jr., who has served the church for 30 years. Fairfield moved from 120 Fain Street Nashville, TN to 1004 S. Dickerson Rd Goodlettsville, TN in 2008. Two churches have since united with Fairfield in 2017, Celebrate Life Community Church and Hands of God Ministries. Fairfield is known in the community for innovative outreach ministries such as the Deacon Ernest Jennings Apartment Complex and Kingdom Café & Grill that provide opportunities for affordable housing and jobs.
