Our Mission & Vision

First Free Will Baptist Church was organized in 1952 by Rev. Glynn Campbell, our current pastor’s father. For over 60 years the church has remained loyal to its founding principles of helping people see their need for Christ and disciplining those who are serious about following Him. Our commitment is to God’s Word, the Bible, and the truth. 
 
In 2017, we are entering into a new phase of the life of our church. As a church family, we are seeking to revitalize our ministries and to change the spiritual DNA of our church. We want to be who God wants us to be. We want to minister in the way the Scriptures instruct us to minister. We want to be a spiritually healthy church.
 
This is a work in progress. And, it is hard work. With the Lord’s help, we intend, within the limits of Scripture, to make changes and adjustments to be Gospel-focused and Christ-centered.
