Fairfield Mountains Chapel is a totally-autonomous self-supporting interdenominational Christian Church, dedicated to serving the permanent and occasional residents of Rumbling Bald Golf and Beach Resort in the Town of Lake Lure, and the surrounding areas. For the first three years of the church’s existence, the congregation worshiped in various facilities of Fairfield Mountains. Then on June 3, 1984, the church opened for worship, at is present site, on Buffalo Creek Road. In July, 1999, during an expansion of the building the church was destroyed by fire, caused by a lightning strike. Just fifteen months later, on October 28, 2000, the church reopened on the same site. The financial gifts that day were sufficient to finish paying the costs of the rebuilding. We never had a mortgage on the new building. The congregation is made up of people from many faith backgrounds who hold differing theological beliefs. The centrality of faith in Jesus Christ is affirmed, and corporate belief is expressed through the tenets of the Apostles’ Creed. We espouse the credo of the Moravians: In Essentials, Unity; In Non-Essentials, Liberty; In All Things, Charity. Our purpose is to bring all persons into a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ, providing opportunities for worship, fellowship, service, Bible Study, and development in the Christian life.
