We would like to personally invite you and your family to one of our three services on Sunday Mornings or one of our activities on Wednesday Nights.

FB Wylie has been serving people in the Collin County area with the Gospel for over 140 years. This congregation has its origins in the Shiloh Baptist Church of Nickleville, which met in private homes prior to 1870. After the town became a part of the new community of Wylie about 1887, the name changed to First Baptist Church of Wylie. Members of the FBC purchased land at the present site in 1905 and constructed a sanctuary. Continued growth led to the calling of a full-time pastor in 1914. The congregation has upheld its commitment to education, worship and community outreach throughout its history.
In 1909, fifteen charter members met at the Lick Springs schoolhouse with the purpose of organizing a Baptist Church to reach the growing area with the Gospel. Over 100 years later Friendship Baptist Church is strategically positioned to minister to the growing area where the communities of Fairview, McKinney, Allen, and Lucas intersect.
In June 2013 Wylie and Friendship opened a new chapter in their history. The faith families voted to become one church at two locations believing they would be “better together” at reaching Collin County with the gospel of Jesus. Thus, Wylie and Fairview became a church for the cities. We pray that you will join us as we strive to complete the Great Commission by “Spreading God’s fame by making disciples of all peoples.”
