The church affiliated immediately with the Inter Mountain Conservative Baptist Fellowship and the Conservative Baptist Association of America.
Seven men have pastored Fairview in its many years of existence: Reverend Charles Stunnel, Reverend Glen Auer, Reverend Ernest Schwenke, Reverend Will Moffet, Reverend Ernest Humphries, Reverend Richard A. Dion, and its current pastor Reverend Steve Mix.
In December of 2013, Reverend Steve Mix was called as Pastor of Fairview Baptist Church.
In 2014 the congregation of FBC voted to sale their downtown building and move to their property off of second avenue north. This move was decision to carry out the goals set in the early 70's to have the church and school in one location. Their k-12 school was located on a large piece of land on the east side of town. Combining the two campuses would help the church carry out it objective and give a pathway for growth.
